Ah I thought you were attempting to use it as if it means someone else had passed them in power.
I honestly think that's a ridiculous position to take. The keyword being 'were', as in... they were but no longer
. Why? Because some of them are dead (Jadus is captured, but I doubt the council would let him live due to the whole Sattelite business idea he had... at least, I wouldn't let him live afterwards). Hadra gets killed by anyone waltzing along the pub corelia storyline as well.
Also, it's kinda meaningless to compare 'power' levels between two people who never met, but at the end of the day, a couple of people that you're championing fell
(as in, not even their 'power' was sufficient to save them) and yet the Sith Warrior (or Inquisitor) still live.
