The main reason that I'm not a huge Ben\Seha fan is that I don't think they should ever have met. I preferred the New Republic's Jedi Order over the GA's because the NR would never let a non-Force sensitive into the ranks. Non-Force users can be part of a community with Jedi in it, but there's something about them *as* Jedi that doesn't sit right with me.

Did I miss something? Seha is a Force sensitive, a full Knight, yes?

Seha is Force-sensitive. She was a late bloomer as an apprentice because she was taken to the Temple at an advanced age (i.e. not an infant). And, yes, she is now a Knight.

Actually, as of the last few paragraphs of NJO: The Unifying Force, it is no longer necessary for one to be Force-sensitive in order to be a Jedi. I'm fairly certain that Seha would never have been taken for training before Luke made that executive decision for the Order.

I personally think that was Luke cutting a corner to get more Jedi more quickly. Rolling Eyes

Idk where you get that idea about Seha. Jacen found her and recognized her Force sensitivity. He used it to make her his spy in the Order. She became Octa Ramis's apprentice and saved her master's life on at least one occasion. By the time of FOTJ Seha had proven she was a capable Jedi.

Seha is depicted as using the Force to place a tracking device on Caedus' cloak via telekinesis in Fury.

Not to mention in the same book she also rescued Kyl Katarn, and more than likely saved his life since he was badly wounded.

I believe she levitated Katarn's body, now that I think about it.

Jacen would think a rock was Force-sensitive if it suited his purposes. Said Solo vouching for anything was never an adequate explanation. And the way of the GA's Order was his idea, when you come down to it. Especially it's worst points.

I'm sure Anakin's somewhere, one with the Force, asking what went wrong, that his uncle would start screwing up in earnest after his death.

Seha used tk? When? I must have missed that. Probably on purpose. No matter.

Strong in the Force marries strong in the Force is how I prefer most Skywalker relationships (Anakin\Padme is the notable exception). And look how that turned out.

The ability to use tk does not make a worthy Jedi (to go with an in universe explanation). It is a Force-skill, I'll admit that. But I think that was some writer's attempt to make her more palatable to the Jedi elitists like me.

Very few authors actually do the minimum amount of research (before sitting down to write) that can convince a vigilant fan `a book by this author is really worth forking over between four and thirty United States dollars, on average.'

"The New Rebellion" is a badly researched book from years ago that would have been enjoyable had they paid attention to what other people had already done. Applied logic from research alone should have told the author that one of the points made was an impossibility. But they didn't bother, and it ruined the whole book by the end of the preview.

I thought the same thing of GA-era EU as a whole. And the character "Seha Dovald" is an example of where recent EU has gone wrong. She's a young, naive, female version of Jacen, another character I always disliked, even before the introduction of his Sith persona.

For those on this topic who don't like Ves\Ben because "It's been done before," and I mean no disrespect, when, exactly, was it done? Mara wasn't ever a Sith by any standards.






<--- That is my opinion of the specific book with the title listed three paragraphs above.

I'm not quite sure what research that Aaron Allston could have done that would have depicted Seha Dorvald as not being Force sensitive since she was introduced by him in Exile and then depicted using telekinesis in Fury. In fact, he's pretty much the only author to use the character at all, apart from Christie Golden in Allies and Ascension.
