Vrook, Kavar and Zez-Kai Ell Respect Thread

This will be my first three-in-one respect thread.

Respect the Lost Jedi Masters:

Master Kavar

Respect Kavar:

"The Force works in mysterious ways, it seems. There are times I'm not convinced it doesn't have a sense of humor."

Power

Kavar is among the highest of Jedi Masters:

“It is a great technique that you have learned. Gifted only to the highest of Jedi Masters – and the Sith – this technique makes your Force powers more difficult to resist… and they will last longer as well. But it can tire you quickly. Use it only in short combats, where expediency is necessary.”

This is impressive because every Master is already capable of unlocking powerful secrets that few Jedi can even dream of comprehending:

A deep understanding of the Force is a must, for a Jedi Master is able to unlock powerful secrets that few Jedi even dream of comprehending.

Kavar possesses extremely potent Force powers:

Kavar isn't as much of a lightsaber virtuoso as the other Jedi masters you've met, but he makes up for this with his extremely potent Force powers.

Darth Traya regards Kavar as too powerful to live, calling him a threat to the Sith and acknowledging the fact that he was so powerful that he could be felt on worlds where it was difficult to sense others:

"Regardless.... it had to be done. To have such powerful Jedi still live, still be felt in the Force even on dead worlds as they had chosen, was a threat that had to be ended."

Combat Skill

As a member of the High Council, Kavar is one of the most skilled Jedi of his time:

If you prove yourself to be among the most skilled and wise Jedi, then you may be given the highest honour — a seat on the Jedi High Council.

Source: Mysteries of the Jedi

Kavar was a famed Jedi Guardian even before the Mandalorian Wars, with the Mandalorians believing that he would be the one leading the Jedi against them, rather than Revan. This implies that Kavar had developed a reputation as the greatest of the Jedi warriors who engaged in the skirmishes against the Mandalorians prior to the Mandalorian Wars:

"Kavar, huh? The famed Jedi guardian? The Mandalorians counted on the fact that it would be you, not Revan, who would lead the Jedi against us during the Mandalorian Wars."

Kavar is a skilled master of Ataru, Shien, Niman and Juyo, as he is capable of teaching these advanced forms to the Exile:

The most advanced Forms can only be learned from a skilled master.

It is worth noting that Kavar can also be considered a master of the Jar'kai variants of the lightsaber forms, given his dual-wielding which was seen against Vaklu's troops in the royal palace.

Kavar is a master of Ataru, an offensive lightsaber form that diminishes blaster deflecting ability in exchange for superior one-on-one fighting. He teaches this technique to the Exile:

"This is Ataru, an aggressive lightsaber form which is best suited against a single opponent. Take care when you face multiple adversaries, and be sure to close the distance between ranged attackers quickly, as your ability to deflect blaster fire will be diminished."

Kavar is a master of Shien, a lightsaber form suited to deflecting enemy fire from multiple assailants without compromising offensive ability, and teaches it to the Exile:

"Never before have the Jedi been so greatly outnumbered. You will doubtless encounter many situations with multiple assailants. To better protect yourself against enemy fire without compromising your offensive capabilities, use the Shien form."

Source: Knights of the Old Republic II: The Sith Lords

Kavar is a master of Niman, a balanced lightsaber form, and teaches it to the Exile:

"Many of the lightsaber forms you've already learned will bolster your abilities in one area, while leaving you vulnerable in others. For superior balance, use the Niman form. This form has no specific strengths, but no weaknesses either. It will provide a decent defense versus enemy force powers and blaster fire."

Source: Knights of the Old Republic II: The Sith Lords

As a master of Niman, Kavar wields amazing lightsaber skill:

This form seeks to balance the strengths of the previous forms through a combination of moderation and calm. A Jedi who has mastered Form VI wields amazing lightsaber skill, but does not focus on power or aggression.

Kavar is a master of Juyo, a form which can overwhelm an opponent particularly quickly but leaves oneself vulnerable to Force attack, and teaches it to the Exile:

"There are times when you want to overwhelm a particular opponent quickly. For these situations, use the Juyo form. Do not get carried away using this form, particularly against Dark Jedi. The ferocity required to use this form leaves one vulnerable to enemy Force powers."

Juyo can only be learned by the most skilled of Force wielders — high-level masters of multiple forms — but grants fantastic power and skill:

Force Techniques

Kavar is a master of the Force Form known as Force Mastery, which allows him to create the illusion of being more powerful in the Force as well as extend the duration of his Force powers, but can drain energy quickly. He teaches the technique to the Exile:

"The philosophy of Force Mastery states that a Jedi's powers are best used without the direct intent to harm another. Here is a form that will aid in that philosophy.Through careful concentration, the duration of many of your Force powers will be enhanced. But be cautious when you face Dark Jedi. This form drains energy quickly, and decreases resistance to Force powers."

Source: Knights of the Old Republic II: The Sith Lords

"He may appear stronger in the Force than you, but this is merely an illusion granted by a certain mastery of the Force. The powers he uses against you will not directly harm you, but he seeks to weaken and confound you. Exploit the weakness of his form by using your own Force powers against him."

Source: Knights of the Old Republic II: The Sith Lords

Kavar is a master of the Force Form known as Force Affinity, which allows him to recover his energy more quickly. He teaches the technique to the Exile:

"As demonstrated here on Onderon, great conflict is often resolved slowly through a drawn out war of attrition. To persevere through long battles, a Jedi must reserve his Force energy. This form offers greater affinity to the Force, increasing the rate at which you regenerate your Force energy during combat."

Source: Knights of the Old Republic II: The Sith Lords

Kavar is a master of and teaches the Exile the Force Form known as Force Potency, which makes his Force powers more potent, at the cost of draining his reserves more quickly:

"The Jedi Order generally scorns unnecessary use of the Force as a weapon. However, it is sometimes necessary to deal with certain powerful threats with a potent Force attack. This form is used for such dire situations. Be warned though. Using your powers in this manner will quickly deplete your Force energy."

Source: Knights of the Old Republic II: The Sith Lords

Tactical Ability & Experience

Kavar was the greatest tactician among the Jedi by the time of the First Jedi Purge, and had seen more war than the all the others:

"It was Kavar's plan - he was always the greatest tactician among us. And had seen war more than the rest of us."

Force Speed

Kavar appears to run past Meetra and her companions, past Colonel Tobin, and out of the cantina before Tobin even manages to react:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=X8lebLFZqsI

He speedblitzes one of Vaklu's troops:

Force Stun

Kavar utilizes Force Stun on five men without even gesturing. He continues to sustain his influence over them for 16 seconds in cutscenes alone, as well as the time it would have taken for the Exile to respond to Kreia's comment. Disregarding the video's poster's unnaturally long amount of time spent to respond, given how the Exile is light-sided, she would have to choose the first option, the only light-sided one, and that should take around 4 seconds to say out loud, meaning Kavar managed to Stun the five men for a total of twenty seconds, on top of the fact that he was running away from them and therefore his influence over them should have been rapidly weakening due to the increasingly extensive distance between them:

Along with Vrook and Zez-Kai Ell, Kavar telekinetically rebuilds the Jedi Enclave (as seen by the disparities in the two following video links). This is the possible option as there is too short a duration between the Exile's two visits to the Enclave for anybody to fix it. The local Scavengers were not able to notice any manual restoration project for the Enclave, and Khoonda is already too lacking in resources to fund a restoration project for the Enclave (they use what they have left to rebuild their community). As a result, the only remaining possibility is if the Jedi Masters quickly rebuilt the Jedi Enclave with their telekinetic powers in order to make it a suitable meeting point:

Force Techniques

Vrook is a master of Force Mastery, and teaches the Exile the aforementioned Force Form, which is considered the pinnacle of Force Mastery. It is capable of subtly enhancing the duration of Force powers and making oneself appear stronger in the Force, but can be draining on one's reserves:

"This form is considered the pinnacle of Force Mastery. Now watch carefully. This subtle technique enhances the duration of many Force powers at your disposal. However, the focus required for this form can drain your energy quickly and leave you vulnerable to Force attack."

Lamar is a master of Force Potency, a Force Form which enhances the potency of Force powers but is more draining on one's Force reserves. He teaches this technique to the Exile:

"Using the Force as a weapon is a sticky issue. Many Jedi feel it leads to the dark side. My experience has taught me that it's lack of discipline that leads a Jedi astray. Use this form with proper restraint and it will enhance the potency of your Force attacks. However, if you are reckless with this form, you will quickly drain your Force energy."

Vrook is a master of and teaches the Exile Force Affinity, a Force Form which allows one to quickly recuperate his or her Force energies in combat:

"When you are facing a long campaign, you need to be more conservative with how you use your Force energy. This form gives you increased Force affinity. In simple terms, it helps you to quickly regenerate Force energy in the middle of a fight."

Vrook is a master of Shien, which is a more offensive version of Soresu, and teaches it to the Exile:

"I'm only going to demonstrate this once. This is the Shien form, a defensive stance that's good when you're outnumbered - which is most of the time. This form will increase your ability to deflect blaster fire and it increases the odds of dealing critical strikes against your attackers."

Vrook confirms that he allowed himself to be captured by the Mercenaries as opposed to being unable to defeat them:

“Do you honestly believe six mercenaries could keep a Jedi master hostage? You still have no faith in the Jedi Council.

Darth Traya regards Zez-Kai Ell as too powerful to live, calling him a threat to the Sith and acknowledging the fact that he was so powerful that he could be felt on worlds where it was difficult to sense others:

"Regardless.... it had to be done. To have such powerful Jedi still live, still be felt in the Force even on dead worlds as they had chosen, was a threat that had to be ended."

Combat Skill

As a member of the High Council, Zez-Kai Ell is one of the most skilled Jedi of his time:

If you prove yourself to be among the most skilled and wise Jedi, then you may be given the highest honour — a seat on the Jedi High Council.

Zez-Kai Ell is a skilled master of Ataru, Shien, Niman and Juyo, as he is capable of teaching these advanced forms to the Exile:

The most advanced Forms can only be learned from a skilled master.

Zez-Kai Ell is a master of the Ataru form, an aggressive lightsaber form suited for single combat, and teaches it to the Exile:

"Ataru is the name given to the movements of this form - though it is aggressive, it is focused, and its best use is in combat against a single opponent. This form is somewhat less useful in deflecting blaster shots - use it when dealing with opponents in close combat, not against a battalion firing heavy blasters at you."

Whether in friendship or in battle, you learn the lightsaber stance Ataru after meeting with Zez-Kai Ell. This stance is perfect for one-on-one battles, like the duel you just survived.

Zez-Kai Ell is a master of the Shien form, a form specializing in deflecting blaster fire and protecting from critical attacks from multiple opponents, and teaches it to the Exile:

"This Shien form should prove appropriate - its best use is when you are outnumbered, which I fear suits your... our predicament perfectly. You will find it easier to deflect blaster fire with this form - and it shall also guard you against critical strikes by your opponents."

Zez-Kai Ell is a master of the Niman form, a balanced form, and teaches it to the Exile:

"Sometimes sparring with another can achieve a form of meditation - the Niman form is one of the best such techniques.There is no great strengths, no edge in such a form, but yet, it achieves its worth in not leaving you as exposed as some of the more aggressive forms. Its strength is its balance."

As a master of Niman, Zez-Kai Ell wields amazing lightsaber skill:

This form seeks to balance the strengths of the previous forms through a combination of moderation and calm. A Jedi who has mastered Form VI wields amazing lightsaber skill, but does not focus on power or aggression.

Zez-Kai Ell is a master of the Juyo form, a ferociously offensive form, and teaches it to the Exile:

"You are at home in places of war and battle - this form may already be known to you. It is Juyo, a ferocious form of lightsaber offense. Against an armed enemy, it is powerful indeed - but against an enemy armed with the Force, you will find them a difficult foe, indeed."

Source: Knights of the Old Republic II: The Sith Lords

Juyo can only be learned by the most skilled of Force wielders — high-level masters of multiple forms — but grants fantastic power and skill:

"Perhaps one of the greatest styles, learned only by the most skilled of Force wielders."

Only high-level masters of multiple forms can achieve and control the ultimate discipline known as Form VII.

Form VII, also called Juyo, is the most difficult and demanding of all forms. Only high-level masters of multiple forms can achieve and control this discipline, which can lead to fantastic power and skill.

He is regarded as a powerful lightsaber combatant:

He is more skilled than Kavar and is a "virtuoso" of lightsaber combat:

Kavar isn't as much of a lightsaber virtuoso as the other Jedi masters you've met, but he makes up for this with his extremely potent Force powers.

Force Techniques

Zez-Kai Ell is a master of the Force Form Force Affinity, which allows the regeneration of Force energy in the midst of a fight, and teaches it to the Exile:

"This is a long war, I fear, with many battles left to fight - you will need to conserve your strength when using the Force if you hope to make it through the long road ahead. This form heightens your affinity to the Force, allowing you to gather your strength faster, even in the midst of combat."

"He is being typically cautious. He isn't sure of your strengths and weaknesses, so he is using a Force form that grants him greater affinity to the Force. This allows him to more quickly regenerate his energies. Don't be drawn into a long battle. Once you understand his technique, attack him while he dawdles."

Source: Knights of the Old Republic II: The Sith Lords

Zez-Kai Ell is a master of the Force form Force Potency, which can increase the influence of one's Force powers at the cost of draining one's stamina. He teaches this form to the Exile:

"It has been some time since you have used the Force, it is true. But there are techniques to enhance one's tie to the Force - to make your influence through the Force more potent. Yet even as such techniques can enhance the Force they should be used cautiously. They can drain you quickly, leaving you at the mercy of your opponents."

Zez-Kai Ell is a master of and teaches the Exile the Force Form known as Force Mastery, one of the greatest techniques of a Jedi Master, which can extend the duration of one's Force powers and grant a false sense of superiority in the Force, but can be exhausting on one's reserves:

"This is among one of the greatest techniques of the Jedi Master - yet when one has seen all that you have, it is such a simple thing, you may wonder why you did not notice it before. Do you feel it gathering within you - now, slowly, let it out... slowly - this technique allows you to maintain your Force powers for longer than normal, though the energy and discipline required is great."

Source: Knights of the Old Republic II: The Sith Lords

"He may appear stronger in the Force than you, but this is merely an illusion granted by a certain mastery of the Force. The powers he uses against you will not directly harm you, but he seeks to weaken and confound you. Exploit the weakness of his form by using your own Force powers against him."

Telekinesis

Zez-Kai Ell opens a door without even gesturing, then pushes Hanharr a very considerable distance with great force - Hanharr is later seen lying in Visquis' arena with mortal injuries:

Along with Kavar and Vrook, Zez-Kai Ell telekinetically rebuilds the Jedi Enclave (as seen by the disparities in the two following video links). This is the possible option as there is too short a duration between the Exile's two visits to the Enclave for anybody to fix it. The local Scavengers were not able to notice any manual restoration project for the Enclave, and Khoonda is already too lacking in resources to fund a restoration project for the Enclave (they use what they have left to rebuild their community). As a result, the only remaining possibility is if the Jedi Masters quickly rebuilt the Jedi Enclave with their telekinetic powers in order to make it a suitable meeting point:

Note: I have made a blog to expand on this feat, in which I have shown that Zez-Kai Ell could have reconstructed the Enclave by himself.

Telepathy

Zez-Kai Ell was one of the Jedi who brainwashed Darth Revan with the Force, wiping his memory. Revan eventually recovers his memory, but only over the course of several years and many events:

"The Jedi captured you and the Council used the Force to reprogram your mind; they wiped away your identity and turned you against your own followers."

Source: Knights of the Old Republic

Zez-Kai Ell can shrug off mind-affecting powers, even when cast by beings of the Exile's power class. The Exile is powerful enough to use mind-affecting powers to immobilize entire groups of enemies:

If you are a Consular, avoid mind-affecting powers as Zez-Kai Ell will probably shrug off their effects.

Force Sense/Farsight

During Meetra Surik's trial, Zez-Kai Ell and the other members of the Jedi Council foresee that the Exile will have many battles in her future:

"No, not death. Many battles remain for that one, if what we have seen is true. But the future is a shifting thing, and she cuts like a blade through it."

Zez-Kai Ell Senses the Exile's status as a Wound in the Force:

"You were correct, Kavar. When she was here, I felt it. It was as if she was not there, more like an echo."

Sever Force

Vrook states that he, Kavar and Zez-Kai Ell have the power to cut the Exile off from the Force:

"It is a punishment reserved for only a few - and only when necessary, but we have the power to cut you off from the Force, and it must be done."

"Cutting one off from the Force - such punishments are reserved only for a few. Although it was within our power, we did not inflict such a loss upon you."

Despite personal regrets, the Council prepares to enforce its judgment by permanently banishing you from all connection to the Force.
