Inquisitor seems to be more of in control of his own destiny while Warrior is largely manipulated by one or other whether that be Emperor or someone else. Not really interested who is stronger since its not relevant in the grand scheme of things as story will never make one class officially beat another class.

In regards to Palpatine dont you think if they could make him super powerfull in the original movies they would have.

But you cant think about it in proper time progression past to future. Lucas writes his stupid fluff retrospectively we have to think of it the same way as he just changes stuff to suit his needs. As far as he is concerned only true cannon is the movie the rest of EU might just as not exist. There was no technology or need for Palpatine to seem more powerfull in the movie. And dramatic necessity demanded obviously that vader kills him.

I ve personally lost all faith in Lucases writing and much prefer biowares EU stuff thats not done by him as his midichlorians and the whole anakin padme romance is sheer idiocy . The only believable part of the plot he did was anakins fall to the dark side out of love strong emotion blah blah blah. Rest of it is just stupid.

The wrath doesnt respond to the counsil. The Wrath is Emperor's self-appointed assasin, protector, whatnot. He is beyond the counsil in a way and he is the enforcer of Emperor's will when things go astray.

Emperor's Hands are more in common with the Dark Counsil, although they too are above it but they administer things - in direct communication with the Voice.

When I started this I thought the SI storyline ends with you being Darth Nox. I didn't know there were other names you could get. How does that work? Anyways, what I meant to say is canon SW vs. canon SI.

With the some Emperors power infused into the Wrath (if so) plus his own force abilities vs. the SI's force ghosts and own ability...their force abilities will become equal. Then it will come to lightsaber combat, which all epic star wars duels end in. This is where the Wrath is superior.

And as has been brought up... neither would win.

Darth Nox is immortal through the ghosts that now fill him.

The Wrath is supposedly immortal through the Emperor.

Unless the Emperor knows a way to subvert the ghosts powers, or the ghosts know a way to subvert those of the Emperor... well, it'll just be a bunch of endless combat.

Oh that gives me the most wonderful mental image. Both the Wrath and Nox, realizing they've been swinging their sabers/hurling lightning around for days stop and go: "Ok, time - out, we need a coffee...and why are we fighting again?"

There is a cure for immortality per the American movie classic that won all the awards for the best movie, ever. Highlander of course, and this gives me a moment in time to scratch something off my bucket list. *use Scary Movie 3 quote in a discussion* check.


Granted we have no shovel, and we're not talking about aliens but...I found their weakness. They're powerless without their heads!

fighting an immortal? Lop that head off.
The suspense is terrible, I hope it'll last.

Sadly, there are always different grades of immortality.

For example... I forgot which of the Norse gods it was, but nothing could kill him except holly. And Loki slays him with a sprig of holly.

So you can't just say 'Immortals will die with no head!'

It could be 'Immortals will be inconvenienced with no head!'

Or 'Immortals... we can't even cut off their head.'

I'd really like to see someone survive getting their head lopped off, have the body sliced and diced into pieces, then have all those pieces and head dumped into molten lava.

Holly? Really? That's pretty weak.
