This thread was originally meant to be only about Jerec, but then, considering that they don't have many feats, I thought it would have been better to include his minions as well. Therefore, this blog will contain individual sections addressing each of these characters.

Having said that, respect Jerec and his Dark Jedi.

Also, for the best viewing quality, view this in blog format.

Shared accolades

This section includes quotes (well, it's just one actually) that refer to all the seven Dark Jedi.

Jerec and his minions are deadly foes:

Katarn's final foe is Jerec, the powerful Dark Jedi who leads the deadly six.

Power

Qu Rahn can feel the Force as twisted in Jerec's presence:

"I can feel the Force twisted and corrupted in his presence"

-- Dark Forces: Rebel Agent Audiodrama

Jerec is said to rival Darth Vader in power:

His embrace of the Force's dark side gives him powers that rival Vader's.

Jerec is powerful enough to subjugate his Dark Jedi minions:

Jerec was already powerful enough to subjugate the other Other Dark Jedi to his designs; now he has tapped the power of a thousand Jedi ancients.

-- Jedi Knight: Dark Forces II: The Official Strategy Guide

Jerec is skilled at using the dark side:

Jerec turned toward Fandomar. Again, even though his eyes were hidden behind the black band, Tash felt that he was seeing something. The presence of the dark side grew stronger. This man definitely knew how to use the Force-for evil.

-- Galaxy Of Fear: Spore

Jerec's power is great enough to make Tash Arranda feel waves of the dark side passing through her, making her skin crawl:

For a moment, Jerec did not move. Tash felt her skin crawl as waves of dark-side power passed through her again. She knew that Jerec was trying to tell whether Hodge was being honest.

“Very well,” Jerec said. He turned to his stormtroopers. “Disable this station’s comlink antenna. No one is allowed to send messages from this lifeless rock. Then stand guard over all the ships.” He smiled cruelly. “No one is allowed on or off this asteroid until I have examined that tunnel.”

-- Galaxy Of Fear: Spore

Jerec is so powerful that Kyle Katarn felt the air grow chilly in the former's presence:

In spite of the noonday sun, Kyle felt the air grow chilly as the other man stepped forward. A hood hung in folds around the hard angles of his face. A narrow strip of black leather obscured the place where his eyes should have been. A tracery of black tattoos swirled away from the corners of his downturned mouth. His voice was as soft as the flutter of bird's wings, yet loud enough to be heard.

-- Dark Forces: Soldier For The Empire

Force Knowledge

Jerec studied Palpatine's Dark Side Compendium for a time, before the latter cut off his access from it:

No Caption Provided

One man who took the title of Dark Jedi with pride was Jerec -- the enigmatic Force-user who murdered Kyle Katarn's father -- but he did not do so alone. Inspired by glimpses into the Emperor's Dark Side Compendium, Jerec intended to bring to fruition an experiment Palpatine had spoken of in his malignant tome: the creation of a unit of seven Dark Jedi perfectly absorbed into the Emperor's will, a "Dark Side Elite." Unfortunately for Jerec, the Emperor readily recognized the darksider's ambition and denied Jerec further access to the Compendium, ending the audacious experiment. Nonetheless, Jerec at least managed to assemble a cabal of Dark Jedi willing to do his bidding.

-- The Dark Forces Saga, Part 3: Pride Of The Dark Side

As a Jedi archaeologist, and later as an Inquisitor, he spent many years seeking out ancient Jedi and Sith knowledge:

A former Padawan to Jedi Master Jocasta Nu, and a master of the Makashi form of lightsaber combat, Jedi Master Jerec was an archaeologist for the Order, seeking out lost knowledge.

--

His innate selfishness and arrogance made it easy for Palpatine's agents to turn Jerec, and he resumed his duties, enthusiastically seeking out ancient Sith knowledge.

-- The Official Starships & Vehicles Collection 27

He was one of the Jedi Order's foremost archaeologists:

He trained as her Padawan and learned of her insatiable desire for knowledge, eventually becoming one of the Jedi Order's foremost archaeologists.

-- The Complete Star Wars Encyclopedia

As a Jedi, Jerec learned much under Jocasta Nu's tutelage, to the point of feeling like he had exhausted all that the light side had to offer and subsequently searching for other sources of knowledge. This would suggest that he studied the Jedi archives extensively, and thus that his knowledge of the Force was considerable even before becoming an Inquisitor:

Jerec learned a great deal under Nu's tutelage, inheriting not only much of his master's supercilious bearing and delicate mannerisms, but also her love of knowledge. Nu encouraged her apprentice never to stop searching for answers, as many were found only by the most ardent seekers. Watching his Force powers grow with the learning he accumulated, Jerec slowly came to understand that knowledge truly was power. And realizing there was always more to learn, Jerec's appetite for knowledge became insatiable.

After training his Padawan Ameesa Darys to knighthood and becoming a Jedi Master, Jerec felt he had exhausted all that the light side of the Force had to offer. During the Clone Wars, he traveled with a group of Jedi artifact finders to the Unknown Regions in search of other sources of wisdom.

-- The Dark Forces Saga, Part 6

Consume Essence

Consume Essence, also known as Feed On Dark Side, is a darksider's ability to feed on other people's negative emotions to become stronger.

Jerec feeds on Kyle Katarn's hatred:

He feeds on the dark side now. You're only making him stronger.

-- Dark Forces: Jedi Knight Audiodrama

Force Blast

Force Blast, also known as Hatred, is a power that allows a darksider to release all of his or her hatred in a blast of pure Force energy.

Jerec knows Force Blast:

Force Destruction

Force Destruction is Force power enabling a darksider to create a massive energy field and throw it in any direction.

Jerec unleashes a dark side blast that destroys "a forest" of Spore and his servants' tentacles:

Spore and all his servants opened their eyes and mouths. A forest of vinelike tentacles shot toward the dark-cloaked Imperial.

Jerec raised one hand. Tash felt a ripple of dark-side power flow from his fingertips. When Spore’s tentacles met the dark-side energy, they withered and died in midair.

Jerec snorted. “Your power is hardly a match for the dark side of the Force.” He cast an evil grin at Spore. “However, you have your uses.”

“If you are so powerful,” Spore said, “what do you want with me?”

-- Galaxy Of Fear: Spore

He uses Force Destruction on Qu Rahn to paralyze him:

(3:21)

Now, I want you to pay attention to the next feat, because it's very impressive. Jerec unleashes a blast of power that hurls Kyle Katarn and destroys a structure that was resistant enough to hold a massive ship in place, causing it to fall into a canyon, a feat he accomplished with no apparent strain:

Force Lightning

Force Lightning is a power that allows a darksider to unleash electrical discharges capable of weakening life and killing targets.

Jerec knows Force Lightning:

Force Barrier

Force Barrier is a power that enables Force users to summon a shield to deflect incoming attacks.

Tash Arranda muses that Jerec could shield himself from Spore while simultaneously flying his ship

For several tense minutes, neither Tash nor Fandomar spoke. Tash listened with her ears-and with her mind. She guessed that Jerec was still concentrating on shielding himself from Spore. That, plus the attention required to fly his own ship, should keep the dark-sider from sensing their presence.

-- Galaxy Of Fear: Spore

Tutaminis/Force Deflection

Tutaminis is the ability to absorb energy attacks. Force Deflection allows to use the Force to deflect these kind of attacks.

Force Sense/Telepathy

Force Sense is a power enabling a Force user to perceive his or her surroundings and detect life. Telepathy allows to read and manipulate other beings' minds, and communicate with them.

Jerec senses Kyle's ambition:

Time stretched thin. Jerec felt Kyle's hunger, the ambition that seeped up through his consciousness, and allowed himself a smile. Here was the flaw that Rahn feared, here was the lever he'd been looking for, and here was a hunger that matched his own.

-- Dark Forces: Jedi Knight

Tash Arranda feels Jerec trying to scan her mind, as well as Zak and Hooles':

Tash shuddered as Jerec’s skull-like face turned in her direction. She could feel his dark-side power sweep over her like a scanner. Then it passed on to Zak and Hoole.

-- Galaxy Of Fear: Spore

Jerec probes the powerful Jedi Master Qu Rahn's mind in spite of the latter attempting to resist him:

(2:24-2:46)

Another student of his was the powerful and stern Qu Rahn.

-- Star Wars Databank

Sever Force/Force Drain

Sever Force is a power used to cut off another Force user from the Force, generally by trapping him or her in a wall of light. Force Drain is a dark side power enabling its user to siphon the life force and Force energy of his or her target.

According to Qu Rahn, Jerec can absorb and overshadow one's connection to the Force:

"His heavy brow overshadows the empty recesses that normally embrace eyes. Jerec has the uncanny power to absorb and overshadow one’s connection to the Force… like a dark cloud. A deep, empowering grasp of your will is what you need."

-- Jedi Knight: Dark Forces 2

Strength

Jerec grabs a man by the tunic, overcoming the force of the latter's gravboots:

Jerec had grabbed the front of Hoole’s tunic and lifted him off he ground with one hand. Tash realized that the Imperial must be immensely strong to overcome the force of the gravboots with just one arm.

-- Galaxy Of Fear: Spore

Combat skill

He is a master of Makashi:

A former Padawan to Jedi Master Jocasta Nu, and a master of the Makashi form of lightsaber combat, Jedi Master Jerec was an archaeologist for the Order, seeking out lost knowledge.

Sariss

Power

Sariss is regarded by Qu Rahn as a powerful Force user, as well as the Dark Jedi he fears the most:

"Out of all the Dark Jedi I have met, Sariss is the one I can say... I fear. Powerful, strong in both the physical and mental arenas of the Force, she is a master, a perfectionist, quiet and reserved."

-- Jedi Knight: Dark Forces 2

She is one of the most powerful of the seven Dark Jedi:

Telekinesis

Telekinesis is a power enabling Force users to use their mind to push, grip, chocke and manipulate both people and the environment.

Sariss Force chockes a colonist:

Sariss stopped, turned, and picked Lasko out of the crowd. The colonist looked surprised, brought his hands up to his throat, and struggled to breathe. His face turned blue, his knees buckled, and he thumped to the ground. Then, just as the life force started to leak out of his body, Sariss relented. Lasko sucked air into his aching lungs, rubbed his throat, and stood. His friends and neighbors averted their eyes as the settler shouldered his way through the crowd.

-- Dark Forces: Jedi Knight

Telepathy

Telepathy allows to read and manipulate other beings' minds, and communicate with them.

Sariss is strong in the mental arenas of the Force:

Powerful, strong in both the physical and mental arenas of the Force, she is a master, a perfectionist, quiet and reserved."

-- Jedi Knight: Dark Forces 2

Sariss telepathically attacks Kyle Katarn:

Kyle swallowed, knowing his opponent was more experienced than he, and then suddenly reeled under the impact of a mental attack. This battle would be fought on two planes. One mental, the other physical - just like the ones in his "dream."

-- Dark Forces: Jedi Knight

She blocks Kyle's Darkshear:

The Jedi accessed the knowledge gained from the long-dead Tal, blocked the mental strike and answered with an attack of his own. He launched a head cut from the third position, flexed his wrist, and extended his arm. Though a good deal lighter than its metal counterpart, the Jedi energy weapon possessed similar characteristics. It could penetrate like a rapier and cut like a saber. A double-edged saber.

Sariss blocked the mental blow, wondered where Katarn had garnered such knowledge, and found herself under attack.

Sariss is stated as being a master duelist and a very dangerous foe by Qu Rahn:

"Out of all the Dark Jedi I have met, Sariss is the one I can say... I fear. Powerful, strong in both the physical and mental arenas of the Force, she is a master, a perfectionist, quiet and reserved. This makes her a very dangerous foe."

-- Jedi Knight: Dark Forces 2

She holds her own against Kyle Katarn before being killed:

He had a squeaky, high-pitched voice: "Keep your head up, look at your opponent, and check your balance. The point should be at eye level - or slightly lower - like so..." A steel blade differs from a lightsaber, of course... but many of the same techniques apply.

Sariss turned. Her eyes burned with anger. There was more than enough time. No cut would be fatal in and of itself, but each added to all the rest would result in a painful death.

Then, after his life force had been released and his blood had mingled with the sand, she would take his head. Not that it would compensate for the pain in her arm or the ache in her heart.

Kyle swallowed, knowing his opponent was more experienced than he, and then suddenly reeled under the impact of a mental attack. This battle would be fought on two planes. One mental, the other physical - just like the ones in his "dream."

The Jedi accessed the knowledge gained from the long-dead Tal, blocked the mental strike and answered with an attack of his own. He launched a head cut from the third position, flexed his wrist, and extended his arm. Though a good deal lighter than its metal counterpart, the Jedi energy weapon possessed similar characteristics. It could penetrate like a rapier and cut like a saber. A double-edged saber.

Sariss blocked the mental blow, wondered where Katarn had garnered such knowledge, and found herself under attack. Her opponent's skill was a surprise - and reminded her that this was no ordinary Rebel. There were various ways to defend against his attack. Sariss chose parry five followed by a well-practiced riposte. Her blade passed under Katarn's, buzzed as it passed through the outer corona of the field created by his blade, and lunged toward his chest. Energy crackled and popped as the agent intercepted her blow - and disengaged.

The attack had failed, so Kyle selected another. The point-thrust was a relatively simple evolution. He dropped the point of his saber, extended his arm, and lunged. Sariss saw it coming, blocked the other Jedi's blade, and spotted an error. Katarn's wrist was too low, a little below the shoulder, opening the Rebel to a head cut.

She lunged as he pulled back, saw a thin red line appear on his right cheek, and felt a sense of satisfaction. The upstart had been lucky - but she would literally cut him down to size. Yun would be revenged.

Kyle saw a flash of color and heard the blade sizzle past his face. His nostrils were filled with the odor of burnt flesh. His own. Pain followed. Pain layered on pain. He knew the cut was a harbinger of things to come. He was tired, hurt, and less experienced.

The Dark Jedi intended to wear him down. What he needed was a quick, decisive conclusion.

The agent assumed the on-guard position and called upon Tal's knowledge. What would the ancient Master do if confronted with a similar situation?

Sariss sensed the other Jedi's hesitation, mistook it for fear, and launched a feint.

It was directed at Kyle's belly. He fell for it, saw her pull back, and knew the lunge would follow. He managed to parry, felt resistance as her saber clashed with his, and found the answer he'd been searching for... Tal had been a student of another no-less-formal school of swordsmanship that was half-physical and half-spiritual in nature. There were many evolutions, and many "cuts," but only one that "sang" with the moment. "The Flowing Water Cut" was for use when going blade-to-blade with an opponent.

Timing was everything... and as Sariss withdrew... Kyle knew that he should "expand," following with body and spirit, like water into a vessel. And there, within the calm, to cut slowly and release Sariss from her body. Action followed thought. His blade strobed through thee other Jedi's chest and the point emerged between her shoulder blades.

There was very little blood since the wound was cauterized as it was made. Sariss looked surprised. Her eyes went down toward the point of entry, up toward his, and then were gone. She fell over backward, hit the ground, and skidded on loose gravel.

Kyle just stood there, swaying slightly, struggling to absorb what had occurred.

He was alive, still alive, which both amazed and pleased him.

Yun

Power

Sariss muses that Yun is extremely talented, perhaps even more than her:

The episode still pointed to an extremely strong talent, however, one that might prove superior to her own one day, a possibility that had never crossed her mind before.

-- Dark Forces: Jedi Knight

Yun is regarded by Qu Rahn as a dangerous and unpredictable foe:

"Yun: a young and willing Dark Jedi, the newest addition to the cause. Brash and eager, he is ready to prove himself to his master at any cost. These elements make him a dangerous and unpredictable foe."

Jedi Knight: Dark Forces 2

Telekinesis

Telekinesis is a power enabling Force users to use their mind to push, grip, chocke and manipulate both people and the environment.

Yun supports a number of falling large chuncks of rock, though he later muses that it was a miracle for him to be able to accomplish this:

Two droids, both designed for heavy-duty construction work, followed the humans into position. An officer counted to three, muscles strained, eyes bulged, and hydraulics whined, but nothing happened.

That's when the next set of tremors hit. Large chunks of rock fell, a helmet shattered, and a trooper fell. He was dead before he hit the ground. Jaru moaned and continued to kick his legs.

"Grab his ankles," Yun ordered, "and get ready to pull."

If Imperial troops had been taught to understand anything, it was blind obedience. The officer gave a quick series of orders, and men leaped to obey and took Jaru by the ankles.

Once the stormtroopers were in position, Yun closed his eyes, called upon the Force, and "saw" the slab rise into the air. It was a truly desperate measure, since he had never moved anything even a quarter of that size during his apprenticeship or in the years since.

But he couldn't leave Jaru lying there, couldn't leave him to die, couldn't... Beads of perspiration dotted the Jedi's forehead, fingernails bit into the palms of his hands, and his lips formed a grimace. Light flared beyond his eyelids, energy crackled, and something moved. The stormtroopers cheered. Yun opened his eyes, caught a glimpse of the slab floating a meter off the ground, and suddenly lost his concentration.

-- Dark Forces: Jedi Knight

Unpacked boxes were stacked against an unfinished wall, an unfinished cable run dangled through an access panel, and the air smelled of sealer. Sariss regarded Yun across the top of her somewhat cluttered desk. He looked the same but felt different, although the nature of the change escaped her. She had heard about the rock-raising incident, everyone had, and read the officer's report. Even Yun admitted that the whole thing had been an anomaly, a near miracle that he wouldn't be able to replicate. The episode still pointed to an extremely strong talent, however, one that might prove superior to her own one day, a possibility that had never crossed her mind before.

Qu Rahn views Maw as a strong and formidable foe:

"To the one called Maw: a bitter individual that loathes all and holds loyalty to few. A strong and formidable foe. For every cord of muscle, there is hatred. It is this hate that keeps his aging body strong."

-- Jedi Knight: Dark Forces 2

Telekinesis

Telekinesis is a power enabling Force users to use their mind to push, grip, chocke and manipulate both people and the environment.

Maw uses the Force to levitate himself via Force Flight while at the same time lifting other objects.

A loading ramp jutted off to the right, and a cargo ship hung beyond that. Kyle took two steps forward, felt something "pop," and felt a sudden flood of sensation. Nothing exotic, not by his standards anyway, just the sort of input he normally received via the Force but had been unable to access for the last ten to fifteen minutes. Why? The answer came with terrifying speed. Something, he wasn't sure what, hit his shoulder and sent him sprawling. He rolled onto his back, jumped to his feet, and lit the lightsaber. The air crackled and filled with the odor of ozone. That was the moment when Kyle realized that Rahn had been right - the lower half of his opponent's body was missing!

It was the Force that held him up off the ground. The Dark Jedi's skull was shaved and seemed too small for his body. Hatred filled his eyes and pulled at his thick-lipped mouth. Two equally enormous arms hung from his muscle-bound torso, and one ended in a lightsaber. In addition to holding the Jedi up off the deck, the Force exerted its influence over other objects as well, including nuts, bolts, pebbles, a ration bar, and various bits of wire. All of which orbited the half-man's body as if he were the sun and they were his planets.

Consume Essence, also known as Feed On Dark Side, is a darksider's ability to feed on other people's negative emotions to become stronger.

He can feed on other people's fears:

"I sense fear, that is my talent. I taste it, I smell it, fear sends ripples through the dark side of the Force and brings the sweet feeling to me."

Because of him carrying two lightsabers, Boc is an uncommon and dangerous opponent:

No Caption Provided

Boc fights Kyle Katrn and drives him back, only losing because the latter killed him while he was distracted:

The Rebel jumped backward as the second bar of energy blurred past his face. He had noticed the second weapon during the earlier confrontation and forgotten it. A stupid, possibly fatal, mistake. Kyle was afraid. Boc sensed the emotion and shuffled forward.

"Perhaps you would like to learn something before you die. The use of two blades, one to support the other, can be traced back thousands of years and was common to both our species. The invention of lightsabers has done nothing to lessen the effectiveness of this strategy - as you are about to learn."

Actually, thanks to Tal, and the old man's considerable experience, Kyle knew something about fighting with two blades, which meant he knew how dangerous such a combination could be. Not that the knowledge would help him much, given the fact that he had only one weapon at his disposal.

"One weapon only?" a voice said within his head. "What of your mind? Are you Jedi? Or something less?" The words, and the fact that Rahn was with him, brought new hope.

Boc advanced. His lightsabers seemed to dance before him. They hummed with barely contained malice and wove intricate patterns in the air. The movements had a hypnotic quality - and Kyle struggled to resist it. Energy sizzled as blade met blade. Kyle retreated as Boc launched a flurry of blows. The Dark Jedi grinned triumphantly, shuffled forward, and "felt" an additional threat. He spun toward Jan.

The Rebel threw the rocks as hard as she could - but to no avail. The missiles exploded as the sabers touched them and hurled red-hot bits of rock in every direction. Jan staggered and fell over backward as a bolt of energy hit her mind. The rock attack hadn't inflicted any damage, but it did buy some time. Kyle took advantage of the opportunity by summoning the Force, forging a spear of midnight black, and hurling it toward his opponent's chest.

Gorc and Pic make for a deadly combination:

"It is a mystery why one would call Gorc and Pic twins. Even though one is a miniature version of the other, they look nothing alike. They also don't battle alike. Pic is the energy and Gorc, the counter. They are the clashing balance of opposites: one, the voice; the other, the body. This combination is deadly."

@zapan87 - You're missing a decent accolade for Jerec

"His embrace of the Force's dark side gives him powers that rival Vader's."

-- Star Wars: Jedi Knight: Dark Forces II Game Manual

Granted, rival doesn't mean equal, but there seems to exist a rough parity between them with this and this from your own Vader respect thread

The tattooed man’s dark-side energy wasn’t quite as powerful as the feeling she’d gotten from Darth Vader months ago. This man wasn’t as strong as Vader. But he was almost as evil.

@zapan871: Hey mate, you might want to add this:

Jerec bore sith tatoos on his face, as Darth Maul had before him, though Palpatine never named Jerec a Sith Lord. Darth Vader already held that title.

It seems that in Vader's absence, Jerec would be Palps' choice for Sith apprentice.

There's also this:

Jerec outranked the Dark Side Adepts such as Hethrir, Sedriss, and Kadann but they viewed him as a turncoat waiting for the right opportunityto stab them in the back.

Both quotes come from The New Essential Guide to Characters.

@the_wspanialy: Eh, the first one is contradicted by the fact that there were stronger people Sidious could have chosen, like Joruus or Gethzerion, and power is the most important thing when it comes to Sith apprentices. Jerec is honestly much weaker than those people. He is also canonically weaker than Sedriss, who was viewed by Sidious as not strong enough to become a Sith apprentice.

The second one refers to authority, not Force power. Thus, I won't add them, but thanks btw.
