Meetra Surik vs ..

Here's a question about the Sever ability...can it be used during a fight as easily as, say, Force Push or does it require a little time to summon and unleash? If you need even a few seconds to unleash Sever Force then in a fight with the likes of Jaina Solo or Satele Shan Meetra would lose if she tried to use it.

Now if it could be used on the fly then Meetra would have a great chance of winning. But here's another thought...WOULD she use it? She knows what it is like to be cut off from the Force. Would she do that to another Jedi? Maybe in a fight to the death, but I don't see any of the fights the OP suggested as being 'to the death'.

Questions to ponder.

Well I am not exactly sure what you mean by fight then, where did you get that it was restricted to outside combat? Traya stated that there was no defence against that technique, although if we can take her by her word is another question entirely.

Questions to ponder.
Nomi and Nihilus seemed to use it almost instantaneously, and I doubt Surik would be over-powered that easily.

Well then we need to ask the question would Jedi fight Jedi?

Against Jaina or Satele I believe Meetra would lose. How quickly I can't say. If the Sever ability can be used instantaneously then she would probably only use it as a last resort. Against Ventress or tano she wouldn't even need to use it. Meetra would slap the two of them around the galaxy, and I am a fan of Ashoka. Leia...I think Leia would give her a fight for a while but in the end Meetra would win.

Now Meetra vs Nomi would be an epic battle. I wonder if they would both try the Sever ability on each other. Too bad we'll never get to see these fights take place. NomivsMeetra would end in a draw I think.

And I do agree with you on the way the Revan novel depicted Meetra in the end. Overall a good book but I thought DK ruined Meetra in the end. Sad really.

I disagree with your disagreement, sever force is a VERY powerful technique that only a few manage to use. That alone makes Meetra almost as powerful as Revan.

Though I agree Grand Master Satele was probably the most powerful Jedi that had existed up to her time.
It wouldn't work because its a wall of Light-Side energy, which is why I don't think it would work on powerful Light-Side Users..

Sever Force from what I have seen has never been used while the person is fighting back . Never.

Keira was being beat down by Scion while Nihilus used it on her . Nihilus was not in the fight and did it from the sidelines.
Sunrider used it Ulic Qel-Droma while he was in remorse for killing his brother. Not fighting back.

If Meetra could use force Sever instant than she is leagues more powerful than anyone , Revan without the force would be useless in a fight with a jedi or sith even the lowest of the bunch.

My question is what distance does Force Sever have ? I know it has been lightside only so far but I wonder if it could be a darkside used ?

The Jedi Council were using it on Surik whilst she was a powerful Light Side practitioner.

Also, can Meetra do Sever Force?


Bare with me, I may be wrong because I'm using Wookieepedia. But it says she only used it either without realizing it or unconciously.

They attempted to. They never actually managed it, if I'm correct.

Also, they didn't break her connection in the first place, it was what happened on Malachor right?
