Barsen'thor Respect Thread

I've decided to move away from the KotOR era, and I'm slowly moving into the TOR era now. I'm deciding to create respect threads for the protagonist characters with whatever canon material I can find which obviously includes game cutscenes and sourcebook entries (the only one at the moment is the TOR encyclopedia, to my knowledge).

Note: I will be using feats from the trailer, which I deem as likely canonical enough. If you disagree, that's fine, but I do think the feats from the Jedi Consular trailer should be made available. The thread itself is not completed.

With that out of the way, respect the Barsen'thor:

Power

The Barsen'thor embodies true skill and dedication, and is a powerful Jedi who has exceptional achievements which impress the Jedi Council:

Embodying true skill and dedication, the padawan confronts the spirit of an ancient Jedi known as Rajivari and defeats a vengeful young man who had pledged himself to Rajivari's teachings. Impressed by these exceptional achievements, the Jedi Council promotes Yuon's Padawan to full membership as the Orders newest Consular. However, this powerful Jedi's adventures have only begun...

Qyzen Fess is impressed enough by the Consular's power and skill that he deems him as the Herald of his goddess:

"I have been fool. Spoke false. You are no small hunter. Cannot be other. Scorekeeper has seen. Chosen for greatest honor. You are Herald of Scorekeeper. Chosen one, Herald. Of great power, skill, honor, Scorekeeper sees and favors."

The Barsen'thor is a master of the Force:

The Consular is an open conduit for the Force, able to manipulate massive forces in order to disable or even destroy even an army of enemies:

The Consular’s powers go far beyond meditation and mediation, and nothing illustrates this as vividly as their graceful movements in battle. Whether beset by an army of assassin droids or caught in the middle of soured negotiations, the Jedi Consular fights with an open conduit for the Force; manipulating massive forces to disable or even destroy their enemies.

The Consular can anticipate their enemies' movements, allowing for elegant and graceful counters:

Many make the mistake of assuming Consulars are not adept with a lightsaber. In reality, Consulars have the Force as an ever-present ally, reading an opponent's movements, and countering with startling feats of telekinesis. When called upon to use a lightsaber, Consulars strike with elegance and skill, secure in the knowledge that there is no death - only the Force.

When negotiations turn aggressive, Consulars demonstrate their gifts of foresight—anticipating and deflecting enemy attacks with fluid strikes from their dual-bladed Lightsaber.

Force Valor/Protection/Speed

Force Valor is a light-sided power enabling a Jedi to enhance one's resolve and physical traits, such as strength, durability and speed. Force Protection is the passive (and sometimes active) enhancement of a Force sensitive's durability to varying superhuman degrees. Force Speed is the passive (and sometimes active) enhancement of a Force sensitive's speed to varying superhuman degrees.

Just before being Knighted as a Jedi, the Consular defeats Nalen Raloch, the best duelist amongst the Twi'leks, whom had obtained knowledge from Rajivari's holocron, and whom had enough raw power to collapse an entire enormous cave:

After this, the Consular defeats Lord Vivicar, the instigator of the plague, who is possessed by the ancient Sith Lord Terrak Morrhage. Vivicar is said to be terrifyingly powerful after siphoning the energies of hundreds of Jedi, and the Consular defeats him despite being terribly weakened as a result of repeatedly utilizing the Shielding Technique, which cost so much energy that its previous user had to sacrifice his own life in order to use it, and yet the Consular was able to utilize it six times, already a testament to his power, before defeating Lord Vivcar himself and then using the Shielding Technique a seventh time:
