Gethzerion was a powerful Nightsister. She spent years honing her abilities.
Cracken's Threat Dossier wrote:During her time in exile, Gethzerion spent years honing her shadowy craft. She discovered that she was able to cast spells without the aid of chanting and other primitive rituals.
Gethzerion is the most powerful of her siblings.
Cracken's Threat Dossier wrote:Of the three sisters, Gethzerion was by far the most powerful.
She's also the most powerful nightsister- putting her above Tamith Kai, Garowyn, and Vonnda Ra.
Dark Side Sourcebook wrote:The most powerful of the Nightsisters was an aged crone named Gethzerion.
While the source for this came out in 2001, meaning it doesn't apply to Mother Talizan and Asajj Ventress- she doesn't need statements to prove she's more powerful than them.
How Gethzerion compares to Luke, Vader, and Palpatine
Gethzerion also shows how powerful she is when she one shots Luke Skywalker.
Luke was more powerful than Darth Vader.The Courtship of Princess Leia wrote:She pointed a finger at Luke, and before Luke even recognized her evil intent, a ripple of Force slammed into him. White lights exploded behind his eyes, and the right side of his face felt as if it had been smashed by a hammer. His left arm and right leg crumpled under their unbearable weight, and he dropped to the ground on one knee, stunned. All the noise and blaster fire and screams of pain died away, became a distant roaring. Gethzerion pointed at him again, twitched her finger, and his eyes lost focus. He felt the hammer blow to his left temple, dropped to his sides and rolled over to his back, grasping. Luke stared up at the sky, watching streams of rocks hurtling above him—some propelled by the Force, others hurled by rancors. Time seemed to slow. His head throbbed, pounding to the same rhythm as the beating of his heart. His face had gone cold, numb, and Luke realized distantly that Gethzerion's spell had ripped open blood vessels in his brain, and he was about to die, one among hundreds of fatalities on this battlefield.
Luke Skywalker and the Shadows of Mindor. wrote:A body more powerful in the Force than Vader, potentially more powerful even than Palpatine. The body of a true hero, beloved by all right-thinking citizens in the galaxy as the very symbol of truth and justice.
And Darth Vader possesed 80% of Darth Sidious's power
George Lucas, STAR WARS: THE LAST BATTLE wrote:“Anakin, as Skywalker, as a human being, was going to be extremely powerful,” he says. “But he ended up losing his legs and an arm and became partly a robot. So a lot of his ability to use the Force, a lot of his powers, are curbed at this point, because, as a living form, there’s not that much of him left. So his ability to be twice as good as the Emperor disappeared, and now he’s maybe 20 percent less than him. So that isn’t what the Emperor had in mind. He wanted this really super guy, but that got derailed by Obi-Wan. So he finds that, with Luke, he can get a more primo version if he can turn Luke to the Dark Side. You’ll see, as this goes on, Luke is faced with the same issues and practically the same scenes that Anakin is faced with. Anakin says yes and Luke says no.”
And, as we all know, Sidious is extremely powerful. He is so powerful his "death" caused a nexus in the force, he mind manipulated billions/trillions of beings into not noticing a super star destroyer being buried, and create planet-killing force storms.
Complete Star Wars Encyclopedia wrote:Any unusual localization, or vergence, of dark side Force energy. These strange locales emanated the dark side of the Force, and were considered focal points of power for dark side users. As such, they were often guarded by Jedi Knights to prevent their discovery and exploitation. Known dark side nexuses included the twisted tree-cave on Dagobah, Halagad Ventor's hermitage on Trinta, and a "stain" of dark side energy that hovered over Endor following the defeat of the Emperor.
New Essential Guide to Characters wrote:Now director of the Imperial Intelligence, Ysanne worked to demonstrate the usefulness of her office to the only person that mattered—the Emperor. Impressed with her suggestion to build a combination internment center and brainwashing facility, Palpatine gave her the Super Star DesteroyerExecutor from the Kuat shipyards—a twin to Vader’s Executor from Fondor. She renamed the vessel Lusankya, and, with help from the Emperor’s mind-fogging powers, Imperial engineers buried the tremendous battleship beneath the cityscape in Coruscant’s Manarai Mountain district.
The Jedi Path wrote:"The Force Storm is truly an awe-inspiring demonstration of pure natural energy. After using the Force to open a hyperspace wormhole, tremendous shockwaves will ripple through the fabric of space. Due to the Force Storm's potential for abuse, the Council has recently classified it as a dark side power. The Reborn Emperor used this at Da Soocha. It has the power to kill worlds."
Handbook Volume Three: Dark Empire wrote:Vast energy storms that connect wildly disparate spots across the galaxy, hyperspace wormholes are unpredictable and devastating. It was to the Rebel Alliance's detriment that Emperor Palpatine was able to not only control these storms, but to create them
Since Gethzerion > Luke > Vader who posseses 80% of Palpatine's power, Gethzerion is easily near Sidious in her dark side powers.
Gethzerion and the Nightsisters
Gethzerion formed the Nightsisters, and imbued them with her powerful magic.
Cracken's Threat Dossier wrote:Gethzerion used her newfound knowledge to gather the other outcasts. While the clan looked on, Gethzerion used her "Shadow Magic" to form the Nightsisters.
Based on the fact that this is one event, it's fair to assume that what she did was similar to what Palpatine did in Dark Empire- that is, imparting her power into others.
Speaking of Palpatine, he was scared of the Nightsisters and viewed them as a threat. They were, after all, imbued with Gethzerion's power.
Cracken's Threat Dossier wrote:Emperor Palpatine felt the Nightsister's presence and realized if they were to escape Dathomir, they could become a threat to his power. He closed off all contact to the world, using atmospheric bombardment to destroy any space-going vessels on the planet.
The power of the Nightsisters, and Gethzion, continues to grow.
Cracken's Threat Dossier wrote:The growing "Dark Energy" emerging from Dathomir did not go unnoticed.
Cracken's Threat Dossier wrote:They [the Nightsisters] found their power grew quickly.

The Courtship of Princess Leia wrote:Baritha shouted, "Gethzerion, we have found the offworlder. He has a starship, but the clan sisters will not give him to us!" Han could hear a humming in his ears, almost as if a fly buzzed within his skull. The hair raised on his neck, and he knew for a certainty that no matter how far away this Gethzerion was, she had heard Baritha's call and was now giving the woman instructions.

The Courtship of Princess Leia wrote:Suddenly, something shoved its way into his consciousness, as if an invisible hand had pushed through his skull. It was an odd sensation that left him feeling violated, dizzy. Very clearly, an image formed in Han's mind, a vision of dozens of men and women in orange coveralls, standing in a well-lighted room. They were looking up curiously, gazing around at walkways above them. On the walkways stood stormtroopers with blaster rifles. Han recognized the prison.
General Solo, Gethzerion's voice crawled through his mind. I hope you will find this amusing. As you see, I am here at the prison with dozens of your kind below me. I trust that you are a compassionate man, a caring man. I suspect you are. As you know, I have struggled through various means to cause you to come to me. Perhaps this will convince you.
A hand waved in front of his face, a hand partly concealed by a black robe, and Han perceived that he was viewing the scene through Gethzerion's eyes. The stormtroopers looked at her waving hand, began firing into the crowd. Men and women screamed and scattered, trying to run from blaster fire, but the gates back to the cell blocks had closed, and they could not escape. Han threw his arm in front of his eyes, tried to blind himself to the atrocities, but the vision persisted. He could not close his eyes against it, for the vision remained even when his eyes shut. Nor could he turn away, for the images followed him: a woman ran shrieking below the parapet, and Han saw Gethzerion's hand go up, blaster aimed as if he were staring through the laser sights, and she snapped a shot into the woman's back. Gethzerion's victim spun with the impact of the blast, then collapsed, stunned, as Gethzerion pulled off another shot. A man beside the dying woman raised his clasped hands, pleading for Gethzerion to spare them. The witch fired high into his right leg and the prisoner was thrown to the floor to die slowly as he bled to death.
These fifty people are already dead, Gethzerion said, forcing Han to continue viewing the murders. They die because of your stubbornness. When my stormtroopers finish with them, I will round up five hundred more just like them, bring them to this room to die. But you can save them, General Solo. I will send a Nightsister to pick you up at the foot of the fortress in my personal hover car. If you are not there to meet her in one hour, then those five hundred people will die, and you will get the privilege of watching. If you do not surrender after that, you will watch the deaths of another five hundred, and another. As I said, I trust that you are a compassionate man.
Other feats and accolades
She one-shots 100 stormtroopers.
The New Essential Chronology) wrote:Gethzerion turned traitor, killing all of Zsinj's guards- including Zsinj's longtime aide, General Melvar- with a crushing blow of force energy.
The Courtship of Princess Leia wrote:"Ah, and allow me to do you one more favor!" Gethzerion whispered, stepping forward. "By giving you this—” Her eyes opened wide, blazing, and she made a raking motion with her index finger. Beside Han the general gasped, reached up to hold his temple, then staggered forward a pace. "A simple death!" Gethzerion cackled. All around Han, a hundred stormtroopers crumpled simultaneously, some of them staggering a step or two, some firing blaster rifles in the air so that Han instinctively ducked. Within three seconds the stormtroopers lay on the ground like drugged birds, unmoving. Han looked up at the carrier, waiting for the ship to open fire. Nothing happened. The ship remained deathly still.
Gethzerion creates a force storm simply because she is angry. (Credit to Silver2467)
The Courtship of Princess Leia wrote:Outside, through the open portals, Han could see fierce storm clouds in the distance, flashing lightning. The stars here burned fiercely above the tree-covered mountains. Around him, the witches laughed and taught their daughters spells in the shadows. The young girls wore shirts and pants of simple hides, not the elaborate costumes of the fully trained witches. Yet the witches seemed more casual, more cozy around their children. They removed their headdresses and let their hair down. Without their full attire, they weren't so intimidating, and reminded Han only of rugged peasants. The witches' husbands worked silently, dressed in tunics of woven plant fibers, serving meals to the women so quietly that Han almost felt as if they must be communicating telepathically.
Augwynne sat nearby so that she could speak softly to Han and Leia. She noticed how Han frequently eyed the distant storm. "Do not worry yourself," she said. "That is only Gethzerion, thrashing in impotent fury. But she is too far away. There will be no Force storm tonight."
"Gethzerion is making that lightning?" Threepio asked, his eyes suddenly bright. "Why, I wonder how much power output she can produce."
Augwynne looked at the distant clouds, unconcerned, and a brilliant branch of orange lightning with many tongues arced up into the sky, as if expressly for her to see. "Oh, she's very powerful, and very angry. But for tonight, she will not come."
Gethzerion has the following abilities, and more:
The Dark Side Sourcebook wrote:Force Skills: Affect Mind +12, Drain Energy + 12, Empathy + 10, Enhance Senses + 10, Force Defense + 12, Force Grip + 12, Force Push + 8, Heal Self +8, Illusion +13, Move Object + 18, See Force +12, Telepathy + 10.
Cracken's Threat Dossier wrote:Absorb/dissipate engery 6D, force of will 8D+1, projected fighting 8D, Seeking Spell 7D, Spell of Awareness 6D+1, Spell of Comfort 4D+2, Spell of Discovery 6D+1, Spell of Interpretation 4D, Spell of Lightning 6D, Soell of Mimicry 7D+1, Spell of Open Mind 6D, Spell of Power, Spell of Thought-Touch 7D+1 Telekensis 8D+2
These are only some of the spells in which Gethzerion demonstrated and it is believed she knew many more.
In conclusion, Gethzerion is an immensely powerful force user who's powers rival that of Palpatine. Respect Gethzerion.
