Is Setele actually the head of the jedi council in that part of the timeline?. I mean its a cool cinematic but from a lore pov the head of the jedi order has absolutely no business whatsoever being on a battlefield.

You dont see the emperor on the front lines shooting lightning nor would you see any real world general or high ranking officer intentionally put themselves anywhere near combat for obvious reasons, leaders lead.
You cant lead while your fighting for your life in direct combat and you certainly cant lead if you're dead.

I don't think so. That was probably earlier in the war. Look how young and un-scarred Malgus is in that cinematic. She was probably just a Jedi Knight then.

Im leaning that way myself.

Is that actually malgus?, I wasnt sure because the end is pretty clear that whoever it was died unless their body is harder that a solid rock face. If that sith died it cant be malgus but if it is how the hell did he survive such a totally unsurvivable attack.

Yup. All 3 cinematics had Malgus. His battle with Shan was how he got alot of his facial damage. He did survive that blast from her in the rock and escaped the planet.

"Malgus survived the encounter and was picked up by his personal shuttle.[5] Frustrated and enraged by the defeat, he payed little attention to his wounds. His breathing sounded like a rasp over wood. His skin stung from burns. His lungs were damaged. Lacerations and contusions made a grim mosaic on his flesh.[5] However, Malgus felt no pain.[5]"

Interesting.

Shame there's no explanation of how he survived. We know force users are durable but we also know they can die as easily as any humanoid. Quite how his flesh and bone body survived that im not sure.

Must of been technology like a personal shield. Seems highly unlikely he could of used the force in such a manner otherwise force users would be far harder to kill than they are often portrayed.

In a lot of the writing about Malgus it is said that he is an incredible physical specimen. Incredible strength and the inability to feel pain. He was probably one of the only force users that would have been able to survive that attack.

All three cinematic take place years before she was made Grand Master.

IIRC that one took place like 15 years prior to the current date.

Yeah, but even so the second cinematic is after the third cinematic. They released them in reverse order, for some reason.
