Spoiler


Transformation in to an immortal entity (avatar of the dark side):

Tenebrae pursued immortality; to accomplish this task, he adopted the path of Sith Sorcery. His plan more complex: He also sought to create a gigantic/endless supply of energy reserves for himself from which he would siphon energies at his will to transform himself in to an avatar of the dark side.

Spoiler


Tenebrae was not just siphoning energies from all the life forms he destroyed on Mediraas (he prevented these beings from merging with the Force after death) but also from many living individuals serving him in his Empire:

Spoiler


Tenebrae demonstrated Abeloth like abilities:

Spoiler


BOSS of millions of Sith Lords:

Tenebrae managed to control countless number of Sith Lords during his life including many dreaded Dark Councilors:

Spoiler


Spoiler


Spoiler


Tenebrae feared nobody:

Spoiler


Tenebrae was the most feared Sith Lord:

Spoiler


Unparalleled combat prowess?

Tenebrae conquered an entire planet as a child:-

Spoiler


How the conquest unfolded?

1. The battle to seize planet Mediraas began at the age of 6:

Spoiler


2. By the age of 10, Tenebrae terminated the ruler of Mediraas in single combat:

Spoiler


3. Tenebrae crushed rebellion by the age of 13 and gained absolute control of planet Mediraas:

Spoiler


Tenebrae impressed Marka Ragnos and was recognized as the legitimate ruler of Mediraas:

Spoiler


Tenebrae became such an overwhelming Force-user that he could single-handedly defeat legendary adversaries, formidable Jedi Strike Teams and Purge Sith Dark Councils:-

Jedi Strike Team led by Tol Braga easily overwhelmed:

"You stand there because I allow it. Because I do not fear." (Tenebrae to Jedi Strike Team)

Spoiler


First known Sith Dark Council Purged:

Spoiler


Second known Sith Dark Council Purged:

Spoiler


The mighty and legendary Revan humbled:

Spoiler


Spoiler


Tenebrae's offensive powers were incredibly lethal:

Spoiler


Revan's command of the Force was incredible by all accounts (he utterly destroyed a very powerful Dark Councilor in single combat to save his allies earlier; Scourge and Meetra) and he stood no chance against the might of Tenebrae; who would have utterly destroyed him, if T3-M4 had not interfered on time.

Unparalleled telepathic capabilities?

It is believed that mind tricks work on weak minds! Wrong! Tenebrae have broken (mentally dominated) many powerful individuals:

Lord Dramath (first known prominent victim)

Spoiler


Revan and Malak (Iconic Jedi heroes turned in to puppets)

Spoiler


Tenebrae could break even the strongest Jedi:

Spoiler


Many Jedi succumbed to Tenebrae's telepathic powers:

Spoiler


Tenebrae's telepathic capabilities had galactic reach:

Tenebrae simultaneously controlled large number of individuals across the span of the galaxy with his telepathic abilities. These pawns ranged from soldiers to powerful Jedi:

Spoiler


Spoiler


Immunity to side effects of heavy dark side practices:

Spoiler


Heavy involvement in dark side practices can also prematurely accelerate aging in Force-users and reduce them to a mere shadow of their former-selves during their lives. Even powerful Sith Lords like Darth Bane suffered such deterioration:

Spoiler


However, Tenebrae possessed such power that he was immune to resultant deterioration from being heavily involved in dark side practices for long period. He remained at the top of the food chain of dark side practitioners for over 1300 years without issues and possessed the capability to last forever and change history.

Spoiler


Planned transformation in to omnipotent godly entity (ultimate objective):

Spoiler


Spoiler


Spoiler


Planetary-scale destructive abilities?

Tenebrae, after his first transformation, possibly acquired the capability to devastate an entire planet with his Force abilities, should he desire.

Spoiler


Revan is absolutely correct:
