Even Piell Respect Thread

Largely unused in battle forums, and relatively obscure in terms of popularity within the fandom, Even Piell is a rather underrated character who has some pretty good material. Unable to find any other respect thread in existence for him, I've taken it upon myself to compile my own.

"Instead of using bacta therapy to heal his wound, or fitting a prosthetic eye to restore his full sight, Piell chose to wear his wound as a badge of honour.

Physical Abilities

Piell uses the Force to protect himself from the point-blank detonation of a grenade:

"The pattern of ripples it made in the Force told him it was another small, round object, most likely another grenade -- and this one, he sensed, was impact-sensitive. If he blocked it with his lightsaber, it would probably detonate. Even raised his hand to deflect the sphere with a Force push -- and one of the stormtroopers fired another blaster bolt, but not at him. The energy pulse struck the grenade arcing toward him, and detonated it. He’d been sucker-punched, Even realized. The luma had been meant to distract him, to let them get inside his guard with their real attack. The shock wave hammered him, lifting him and hurling him back. He collided against a support column with a terrible impact. The Force had protected him from immediate vaporization, but the pillar had been a surprise. He felt his bones snap and his organs burst when he hit the unforgiving fiberplast."

Piell knows Burst of Speed:

After enduring prolonged periods of torture, and despite his target having a significant headstart, Piell quickly overtakes a fleeing probe droid via a series of swift leaps:

No Caption Provided

While severely fatigued and malnourished, Piell jumps over a group of stormtroopers:

"There was one slight chance of survival, he realized: if he could perform a Force leap over the troopers, he might stand a chance of reaching the door. It would have to be perfectly executed, and the danger was that his adversaries would be familiar with the move. Even as these thoughts crossed his mind, however, he was springing toward the five armored soldiers, each of whom was easily double his size and weight. The unexpected move worked to his advantage; evidently the stormtroopers hadn’t experienced this particular action before. Even leapt, let the Force carry him, let it shift his weight and torque his muscles, spinning him so that when he landed he was facing his foes. His technique was flawless; he lit, perfectly balanced, on the ancient parquet floor, lightsaber at the ready."

Piell uses the Force to preserve his life while suffering from massive internal injuries, many broken bones and limbs, burst organs, and a snapped spine:

"He felt his bones snap and his organs burst when he hit the unforgiving fiberplast... Nick rushed to the Jedi’s side, but saw immediately that there was nothing he could do. It was obvious that Master Piell had massive internal injuries and, judging by the unnatural angles of his limbs, many broken bones as well. And, as if things weren’t bad enough, from the way his back and pelvis were twisted, Nick figured his spine had probably snapped. He’d seen many an atrocity on various planetary battlefields—soldiers with limbs blown off, or perforated by shrapnel, or partly immolated -- it was a long list, and one he most definitely did not want to inventory right now. But he’d seldom seen such havoc wrought on a single living being. Most ordinary sentients would have died from the blood loss and shock long before now. The Force was the only thing holding Master Piell together, but that was unraveling fast -- Nick could sense it. He hadn’t known the Lannik well, but he knew enough about him to greatly respect him."

-- The Official Star Wars Fact Files

Piell is a scholar, and has a passion for wisdom:

"Although he has a passion for wisdom, Piell does not let being a scholar stand in the way of making snap decisions -- whether on the Council, or the battlefield."

-- Star Wars: The Clone Wars Magazine

Piell is a scholar on the Council of First Knowledge:

"It was still almost impossible to comprehend. It had all happened so fast. In only a few short days he had been forced to give up everything. No more would he look upon the five spires of the Jedi Temple, or walk the fragrant-flowered paths and tessellated floors of its private gardens and chambers. No more would he spend rewarding hours in discussion with his fellow scholars in the Council of First Knowledge, or research interstellar esoterica in the Archives..."

-- Coruscant Nights I: Jedi Twilight

-- Star Wars: Galactic Atlas

With his eyes blinded, Piell can use the Force to attain a superhuman degree of eyesight:

"The object he held was a luma grenade, and the man had no intention of throwing it. Instead he simply activated it and let it fall to his feet. Before Even could shield or even close his eyes, the sphere dissolved in a blinding burst of actinic light that washed away the world. The stormtroopers were wearing polarized lenses as part of their headgear. The light didn’t dazzle them at all. They could see Even, and he could see nothing but the glare of his scorched retinas. Still, they were fools to think that this made any difference. A Jedi could 'see' through the Force with better vision than any set of eyes. Even backpedaled, weaving the lightsaber in a warding pattern that blocked the barrage of energy bolts they had loosed at him, as he reached out with the Force and let it do what his shocked vision couldn’t. But even as he wondered at their naïveté, another object hurtled at him. The pattern of ripples it made in the Force told him it was another small, round object, most likely another grenade—and this one, he sensed, was impact-sensitive. "

-- Coruscant Nights I: Jedi Twilight

Piell's power as a Jedi was as large in life as he was small in stature:

Piell is a senior member of the Jedi High Council:

"A gruff and battle-hardened Jedi as well as senior member of the Jedi council, Even Piell is bigger than life though he is small in stature."

-- StarWars.com: Databank

This is important because members of the Jedi High Council become senior based solely on their connection to the Force:

"Although there were often some members of the Council considered to be senior to the others, these in fact had no more power, and all important decisions were always made with consultation of all 12 members. Jedi were regarded as senior only due to their connection to the Force and wisdom in interpreting its will."

-- The Official Star Wars Fact Files

Piell immerses himself in the Force, allowing it to guide his movements and significantly enhance his physical abilities:

"Even Piell took a fighting stance, raised his lightsaber, and gave himself fully to the Force. The Force was an invisible cataract that carried Even Piell in its grip, bearing him as lightly and easily as a jekka seed in white water. He surrendered to it, as he’d learned to do so long before, letting it guide and direct him, letting it move him in offensive and defensive actions far faster and more precise than his conscious mind could possibly have executed."

-- Coruscant Nights I: Jedi Twilight

"He fought back-to-back with Anakin Skywalker, both perfectly in tune with each other through the Force."

-- The Official Star Wars Fact Files

Piell levitates his body up a tube:

"For Even, the closest thing to which he could liken calling on the Force was sinking into warm water. It soothed him, calmed him, even as it lent energy to his tired muscles and sharpened his senses. He made a slight, uplifting gesture. The Force became a geyser, raising him up through the length of the tube."
