still with revan being a blank slate right now, any writer could change his gender and make him a female, but we wouldn't have Satale. :
Sion strikes me as a one trick pony. He can take a **** ton of injury, but nothing else he's done has overly impressed me.
well he did take down a Jedi master, survived the downfall of Exar Kun's empire survived the internal fighting on korriban, would probably have murdered the Jedi exile on said planet, had kreia not intervened. Like I've said before, you don't simply "survive" the downfall of TWO sith empires without being 'forced' to fight your way out of a battle but hey that's just me.
I'm given to understand that her victory over Nihilus was largely circumstantial, with a big factor being her immunity to his greatest power
Yeah, also he was stated by Visas to become weaker if he doesn't feed often so that could've also played a part in his downfall, though I think I might be in the wrong on this. also the exile beat Nihilius with the help of Visas, remember Visas temporarily disrupted the connection between her and her master.
The exile was accessing the Force via her companions. By the end of the game, she is tapping the Force presence of 3-4 fully realized Jedi. It's no wonder the assassins were able to respond to such a powerful Force presence. (damage done to the Force bonds between her and the rest of the party upon her disappearance might explain why she is less powerful once she meets Revan)
Good point, But if that were how does that explain her accolade of fighting an entire sith academy fill with Sith Trooper, Sith Assassins, Droids AND Dark-Jedi? her allies were not near her at all how could she have been 'strong' enough to defeat an entire academy and Sion? I mean I know that her allies don't have to be NEAR her, but Malachor is known as a planet that kills all life a bigger wound than the exile, when you think about it her allies were probably blinded by the powerful Nexus of malachor, I remember that dark side nexus' often lead to inexperienced padawans or master falling to the dark side or becoming blind(e'x like juhani who had a bond with her master, but after she "fell" she couldn't sense her master) doesn't that mean the exile was blocked off from her apprentices?
If I remember correctly, Kreia or one of the three Jedi master's said that the exile was a wound that could never be healed, that she would remain a wound unless they stopped her(something like that) the wound isn't something that can go 'away'. I think by the end of KOTOR 2 kreia say that the exile alreadly reestablished her connection to the force, hell the exile even learned the ancient technique called, Force Enlightenment a technique that could only learned by those who were 'truly' attuned to the force. I don't know I think having been a high level sorceress Nyriss maybe tapped into dromund kass or maybe The exile underestimated the old sith, both are highly likely
