Hero of Tython 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 Knight trailer should be made available.

With that out of the way, respect the Hero of Tython:

A lone Jedi Knight must survive war, darkness and betrayal to save the besieged Republic from the malevolent Sith Empire's mightiest warriors. - The Old Republic Encyclopedia

Few enemies can match the Knight's raw power once he is trained:

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.

Note: I know this only happens in the dark side version, which is presumably non-canon, although there has been no official declaration of which side is canon first. And I stand by what I have said before - that even if he didn't actually do this, the feat should at least prove he is capable of doing so.

The Knight possesses dazzling combat skills, and is capable of achieving extraordinary feats:

The Jedi Knight’s graceful movements are awesome to behold. Freezing a moment in this display captures the deep commitment underlying the Jedi’s dazzling abilities. Though a Jedi Knight’s life is filled with battle and adventure, the Knight’s heart is dedicated to peace and service. An ironic observation to some, but greater wisdom suggests it is the Jedi Knights’ humble devotion which makes them so likely to become such famous heroes.

Whether defending allies by deflecting a barrage of blaster-fire or charging in to challenge a Sith Lord, the Knight’s role is crucial in any conflict. The Jedi Knight enjoys the benefit of ancient teachings that have been passed down through hundreds of generations. Combining these time-tested maneuvers with the natural guidance of the Force, the Knight is capable of achieving extraordinary feats.

Defeating the Emperor Lord Vitiate himself, after fighting through numerous troops. The Emperor was severely weakened, but was also in the Dark Temple, a very powerful dark side nexus, as well as on Dromund Kaas, which itself is a dark side nexus. This would have partially compensated for the Emperor's loss of strength, and would have additionally served to hinder the Knight considerably:
