A brief summary of Exar Kun's life as told by Jedi Master Gnost-Dural:


The Chronological Rise of Exar Kun

Exar Kun was meant to become the most illustrious Jedi from the Dantooine Academy ever:

Exar Kun Supreme Respect Thread (NEW UPDATE 5/27/2022) Screen73

Exar Kun had great potential as he was selected by Master Vodo for training in the Dantooine Jedi Enclave, and is one of the most powerful Force-users in history:

Jedi Enclave Ruins Codex Entry wrote:Some of history's most powerful Force-users trained in the halls of the Jedi Enclave on Dantooine. Only students with great potential were admitted, and while the rigorous training produced exceptional Jedi, the fall of several notable students to the dark side cast a pall on the institution's legacy. Exar Kun, Darth Revan, and Darth Malak all trained at the enclave on Dantooine.

Exar Kun is the most formidable student Vodo Siosk-Baas, who had taught Jedi for six centuries, ever had:
Vodo Siosk-Baas, Tales of the Jedi Omnibus Vol.2 wrote:Exar Kun, you are the most formidable student I have ever had…

Exar Kun as a Jedi was even more fearsome a Force-user to deal with than the legendary Darth Vader, per Dan Thorsland:

Freedon Nadd states that Exar Kun is going to be greater than Ulic Qel-Droma:

Freedon Nadd to Ulic Qel-Droma, Star Wars Omnibus: Tales of the Jedi Vol.2 wrote:"You. You will be one of the great ones and there is another greater than you."

Crado, who is one of the aforementioned students accepted by the Jedi Enclave and Vodo Siosk-Baas for training on Dantooine, is no match for Padawan Exar Kun:

Immediately thereafter, Exar Kun produces such impact with his lightsaber blade in a duel with Sylvar that it can be heard from kilometers away:

Exar Kun then overwhelms Sylvar:

As you can see above, Exar Kun brute forced Vodo's quarterstaff, which again is stronger than any lightsaber blade due to Force imbuement:

Exar Kun Supreme Respect Thread (NEW UPDATE 5/27/2022) 47036010

This was not the first time Exar Kun had defeated his Master in practice duels:

Jedi Academy Training Manual wrote:As the Jedi Watchman of Dantooine, Master Baas spends much of his time on the planet and trains multiple apprentices at a time. His strongest apprentice, however, is a young pupil named Exar Kun. Kun's skill with a lightsaber is so great that he claimed victory over his master many times when they sparred together.

Exar Kun as a Jedi Knight was considered to be without equal with a lightsaber by the lead historians of the Jedi Order during the Cold War era:

Master Gnost-Dural, Star Wars the Old Republic Timelines wrote:"As a young Jedi Knight, Exar Kun exhibited a strong connection to the Force. Through long practice he achieved unparalleled prowess in lightsaber combat."

Exar Kun is so strong with the Force, that the darkness in him has concealed itself to such a degree not even Kun himself is aware of it:

Exar Kun Supreme Respect Thread (NEW UPDATE 5/27/2022) 47035310

This is similar to others such as Darth Sidious in the mythos:

Darth Plagueis wrote:Was the Force so strong in him that it had concealed itself?

Darth Plagueis believed the ability to do this was a sign of incredible natural power:

Darth Plagueis wrote:Had this human truly been born of flesh-and-blood parents? Plagueis asked himself. When, in fact, he seemed sprung from nature itself.

Exar Kun abandoning Vodo Siosk-Baas caused a dark side shadow over Dantooine that lasted years:

Exar Kun smashes through a thick wall of Beskar with the help of the spirit of Freedon Nadd, this is despite Beskar being the lightsaber resistant Mandalorian Iron, with sheer force of strength:

Exar Kun Supreme Respect Thread (NEW UPDATE 5/27/2022) Images39
Exar Kun Supreme Respect Thread (NEW UPDATE 5/27/2022) Images40

Per Abel G. Peña, this was done with ease in a similar way to how Luke Skywalker was capable of cutting through Lumiya's beskar lightwhip:

Abel G. Peña wrote:“For the record, the first example of a Jedi slicing through Mandalorian iron with relative ease occured way back in Tales of the Jedi: Dark Lords of the Sith, when Exar Kun cuts his way into Freedon Nadd's tomb. The metal portions of Lumiya's lightwhip, shards of which go flying in her duels with Luke, also consists of Mandalorian Iron.”

The New Essential Chronology wrote:Exar Kun let out a tremendous shriek that echoed across the galaxy, calling in despair upon Master Vodo, whom he had abandoned.

The Essential Guide to Characters wrote:The betrayal of light was not an easy one for Kun, but the desire to live was stronger. He accepted the dark side, his screams reaching out across the galaxy and creating ripples in the Force.

Exar Kun, Star Wars Databank wrote:His body was crushed in a cave-in of tons of rocks, and Kun could not call upon the Force to help himself. Yet, the dark side offered what the Force couldn't. By giving into his fear and rage, Kun was able to heal himself and clear the obstacles. He emerged from the caverns transformed, fueled by the dark side of the Force.

Then he 'demolishes' dozens of Tomb Beasts 'easily':

Exar Kun, Tales of the Jedi: Dark Lords of the Sith Audiobook wrote:"If you're wasting my time, I'll use this amulet to turn you to ashes!"

Exar Kun gained the 'full strength' of the dark side of the Force by killing the Sith wyrm:

Dark Side Sourcebook wrote:When Kun destroyed the creature with an ancient Sith amulet, he won the approval of Nadd, the full strength of the dark side, and the worship of the Massassi. Kun set the Massassi to work, expanding the remaining temples.

Exar Kun then turns on his mentor Freedon Nadd and destroys his spirit with a 'full strength' blast:

Exar Kun, Tales of the Jedi: Dark Lords of the Sith Audiobook wrote:"Now, let me try a full strength blast!"

"Incredible, it even works on spirits!"

In fact, Exar Kun is stated to outright destroy the spirit of Freedon Nadd after learning too much and becoming too powerful:

As his spirit is destroyed, Nadd claims that the Ketos shouldn't fear Ulic, but Exar:

Freedon Nadd to Aleema & Satal, Star Wars Omnibus: Tales of the Jedi Vol.2 wrote:"My children, it is not Qel-Droma you must fear! Beware of Exar Kun, he has acquired great Sith powers!"

This in spite of the fact that it was Ulic's initial fall that released the power of the dark side in the universe:

Exar Kun Supreme Respect Thread (NEW UPDATE 5/27/2022) Scree134

Exar Kun absorbs Freedon Nadd's magical knowledge which makes him a super power:

Exar Kun, Galactic Files wrote:This leads him to the tomb of a long-deceased Dark Lord named Freedon Nadd, a spirit who is destroyed by Kun after all of his magical knowledge is absorbed. Now super-powerful,

Freedon Nadd's knowledge encompassed everything within the Tales of the Jedi Companion and all the as-of-yet undiscovered holocrons and tomes:

Tales of the Jedi Companion wrote:Freedon Nadd has knowledge of all Jedi and Sith Force powers presented herein as well as those abilities still hidden in ancient Holocrons and tomes.

Freedon Nadd was once the greatest Sith sorceror ever:

Tales of the Jedi Companion wrote:He only needed time to become the greatest Sith sorcerer that had ever existed.

Exar Kun immediately mastered this new power:

New Essential Chronology wrote:Still simmering with the Sith powers he had mastered, Kun lashed out and obliterated Nadd for all time.

Vodo-Siosk states that he senses Exar Kun has risen to take Freedon Nadd's place as a 'great power' in a similar manner to Darth Plagueis gaining in power upon killing Darth Tenebrous:

Vodo-Siosk Baas to Nomi Sunrider, Tales of the Jedi: Dark Lords of the Sith Audiobook wrote:"I sense a disturbance in the Force. As if one great power has fallen, and another has risen in its place."

Darth Plagueis wrote:He knew from his travels with and without Tenebrous that he wasn’t the galaxy’s sole practitioner of the dark side—nor Sith for that matter, since the galaxy was rife with pretenders—but he was now the only Sith Lord descended from the Bane line. A true Sith, and that realization roused the raw power coiled inside him.

Exar Kun Force Screams again, this time in victory:

Vodo-Siosk Baas, Tales of the Jedi Audio Drama wrote:"I can hear my apprentice calling out in evil triumph."

Exar Kun's fall to the dark side effects the balance of the Force:

Exar Kun inherited Naga Sadow's power:

The spirits of the dark side cheered Exar Kun destroying Freedon Nadd as they did when Darth Sidious killed Darth Plagueis:

Jedi Academy Vol.III: Champions of the Force wrote:In his mind Kyp heard cheering ghosts, saw visions like a videoloop from four thousand years ago when Exar Kun had found the last resting place of the ancient Sith. Kun had rediscovered their teachings. He had built great temples, establishing the Brotherhood of the Sith among disillusioned Jedi Knights. Here on Yavin 4, Kun had used the Massassi people as expendable resources, power conduits to redefine the chaos and corruption of the Old Republic. He had challenged the foolish Jedi who followed their incompetent leaders without thinking simply because they had sworn to do so....

Darth Plagueis wrote:A welter of voices, near and far, present and from eons past, drowned his thoughts. Raised in praise, the voices proclaimed his reign and cheered the inauguration of a new order. Yellow eyes lifted to the night sky, he saw the trembling stars flare, and in the depth of his being he felt the power of the dark side anoint him.

Naga Sadow's knowledge and power was considered very dangerous by Darth Sidious:

Exar Kun Supreme Respect Thread (NEW UPDATE 5/27/2022) Screenshot_20200607-173415_Google_Play_Books

Kun's power is stated to be rising:

Chronicles of the Old Republic wrote:Exar Kun's power is in the ascendance.

Exar Kun is even more powerful by the time Ulic Qel-Droma kills Satal Keto and joins his cousin Aleema:

Chronicles of the Old Republic wrote:Ulic unleashes a force of unruly fury at the death of Master Arca, avenging the death by defeating Keto, and taking the Krath throne by the side of Aleema. Meanwhile on Yavin 4, a more powerful EXAR KUN rests in his meditation chamber

Exar Kun's power is stated to now be extreme as he 'dabbles' in dark side alchemy:

The New Essential Chronology wrote:An extremely powerful figure now, Kun dabbled in dark side alchemy, creating freakish two-headed avians and hulking terentateks that thirsted after Force-rich blood. He invented a glowing golden sphere that trapped the children of the Massassi and allowed him to feed off their energies.

Exar Kun is among the great masters of Sith alchemy, thus he's already among the most powerful Sith Lords in history:

Dark Side Sourcebook wrote:The most powerful Sith Lords possess a talent for the dark alchemy of the Sith. The Emperor, like Naga Sadow and Exar Kun long before him, became a master of manipulating the genetic building blocks of living creatures through the dark side. Over the millennia, many creatures have been broken, twisted, and rebuilt by this evil power.

Exar Kun created the Golden Globe, it was deemed impossible to enter or otherwise manipulate by any Jedi Ikrit knew as of 385BBY, due to the power Kun imbued with it:

Exar Kun Supreme Respect Thread (NEW UPDATE 5/27/2022) Screenshot_20200606-145028_Chrome

He also created the Dark Reaper/Force Harvester:

The Dark Reaper was so powerful Mace Windu and Yoda deemed it the end of the Republic:

Note: All alchemical creations are made Force-sensitive by their creators by imprinting it with a mirror of the forger's power:

Exar Kun Supreme Respect Thread (NEW UPDATE 5/27/2022) Images41

Exar Kun created Massassi durable enough to tank Republic ordnance, and successfully transforms them into skilled Force-users infused with his own DNA. They are state to 'exude' dark side energy:

The Dark Side Sourcebooks wrote:The Sith disciple first altered Zythmnr physically, fusing the old priest's skin with metallic bioarmor and enhancing the Massassi's skeletal structure and musculature accordingly. Vicious claws became razored gauntlets, thick hide became hardened plating, and Zythmnr's head was encased in a shelled helmet. The process was excruciating for the Massassi. He not only survived, but also continued to worship Kun, willfully insisting the experiments continue.

Exar Kun was more than happy to comply. He took his next step: infusing his new warrior with the dark side using some of his own physical makeup as a template. When Zythmnr readily took to the treatment-and even showed potential with Force skills-Kun chose several more "volunteers" to continue his work. Before long, he had several dozen living weapons that exuded the raw power and energy of the dark side. Upon feeling their power firsthand, the Jedi called them "abominations." Kun would take many of these bestial servants on his quests for Sith knowledge. In a few cases, he even left a handful of his favorite warriors behind to terrorize any that might oppose him. While the Jedi believed that all of the Massassi abominations died with their people, there may yet be descendants of this hideous species stranded on some remote, forgotten world.

One of these was Kalgrath the night beast who could generate an instinctive Force Shield so strong that it was 'invulnerable' to heavy weapon emplacement fire:

He also created Battle Hydras as an example of his mastery, resistant to lightsaber blades and armed with incredibly potent venom:

The Dark Side Sourcebook wrote:The battle hydra is an example of Exar Kun's alchemical mastery and Naga Sadow's dark legacy.

****

Exar Kun's Sith alchemy forever altered these creatures' physiology, giving them many unusual traits. For example, Kun introduced ancient Sith armor alloys into their basic physiology at the molecular level, reducing damage against attacks-even lightsaber attacks. They are also especially susceptible to manipulation through the Force. A trained dark side Force-sensitive may use the Affect Mind skill to command battle hydras in combat.

Exar Kun combined the natural venom from many different creatures when he mutated his original hydras. When the battle hydra hits with its stinging tail whip, a hooklike stinger injects acidic poison into the victim. This foul toxin is capable of destroying most of the victim's nervous system from the inside-out within a matter of minutes.

Exar Kun makes Yavin IV the new center of Sith power:

New Essential Guide to Characters wrote:After obliterating Nadd's lingering spirit, Exar Kun made Yavin Four the new fulcrum of Sith power.

Exar Kun telepathically searched the galaxy for practitioners of the Sith and only Ulic Qel-Droma was a true threat who could challenge him:

Ulic Qel-Droma, Star Wars Databank wrote:Now, he sought out the only other Sith practitioner who could challenge him -- Ulic Qel Droma.

Chronicles of the Old Republic wrote:Meanwhile on Yavin 4, a more powerful EXAR KUN rests in his meditation chamber, reaching out across the galaxy and detecting other Sith practitioners with his psychic tendrils. Believing himself to be the instigator of a new Sith Golden Age, Kun journeys to the Empress Teta system to destroy Ulic, knowing him to be a threat to his power.

Exar Kun telekinetically lifts a Derriphan-class Battleship out of the depths of a massive temple, but doesn't deem this to be a good enough first display of his new powers:

Knights of the Old Republic Campaign Guide wrote:Though all of the Derriphan-class battleships were thought to be destroyed in the Great Hyperspace War, at least one survived. The ship, belonging to Naga Sadow, was buried on Yavin 4. During the Great Sith War, Exar Kun would raise the ship from the planet and put it back to service, similar to the way Darth Nihilus would raise the Ravager from the ruined surface of Malachor V.

Yavin IV, Star Wars Databank wrote:Sadow commanded his crew to erect massive temples to serve as focal points for his Sith magic. Sadow, a skilled alchemist, hid his vessel deep underneath the newly built Sith Temple of Fire.

The Dark Side Sourcebook wrote:There, his Massassi crew helped build stone temples to focus the energies of the dark side (conveniently hiding Sadow's Sith battleship).

Abel G. Peña wrote:Q: In the Knights of the Old Republic Campaign Guide, under the Sith Battleship description it states that Exar Kun recovered his ship the Corsair in the same way Darth Nihilus recovered the Ravager on Malachor V. Does this mean that Exar Kun summoned the ship via the Force from the depths of the Massassi Temple of Sacrifice?

A: That said, looking over the text, it appears to me to be a direct analogy with the Ravager and that your interpretation is essentially correct. (Another example, though in reverse, is Emperor Palpatine using the Force to bury the Lusankya, in plain sight, beneath the surface of the planet Coruscant.)

Exar Kun will threaten every galaxy in the universe with his power, making them tremble:

Cargo Bay, starwars.com wrote:In the depths of galactic space, a foolish and arrogant young Jedi awakes an ancient, deadly power. This seductive evil will lead him down a path that will make him a Dark Lord of the Sith, and his darkling power will make the very galaxies tremble.
Cargo Bay, starwars.com wrote:In the remote reaches of the Star Wars universe, an ancient and deadly power has been reawakened by a foolish and arrogant young Jedi. He will begin a quest to become a Dark Lord of the Sith, and every galaxy will be threatened by his power.

Exar Kun travels to Cinnagar where he dominated the minds of every witness to his Battleship attack on a hangar:

Tales of the Jedi: Dark Lords of the Sith Audiobook wrote:"Help!"

"No one will help you, no one even knows."

"But your ship! Energy blasts! Scanners!"

"All went unnoticed, my unfortunate friend. With the dark side I blinded every scanning technician in Cinnagar. They all watched me land and wipe out your little docking bay, and not one of them batted an eye!"

"Who.. are you?"

"I? Soon, I shall be the man who conquered this planet, the man who rules the galaxy. But for this moment, I am the man who murdered you."

Exar Kun shrugs off the power of Aleema Keto, blasts her unconscious and engages in a stalemate lightsaber duel with an enraged Ulic Qel-Droma:

The swordsmen were so skilled that neither would've made a mistake in their technique for hours:

They are then anointed as heirs to the Golden Age of the Sith by the spirit of Marka Ragnos with Exar Kun the Dark Lord of the Sith:

Exar Kun becomes the most powerful force in the galaxy as he gains the mantle of the Dark Lord of the Sith:

Tales of the Jedi: Dark Lords of the Sith #6 wrote:In the final, climactic issue of this landmark series, two renegade Jedi, Ulic Qel-Droma and Exar Kun, clash in mortal combat. One will be awarded the title of Dark Lord of the Sith, the most feared and powerful force in the galaxy; the other may be awarded a shallow grave.

Ulic Qel-Droma uncovered a way of harnessing the Force that gave Anakin Skywalker 'too much power' and more than he could imagine, a month after the battle of Geonosis:

Official Star Wars Fact File 107 wrote:The ancient Jedi Master warned that the knowledge he would pass to Anakin would let him resist the effects of the Force-stripping Harvester and the Dark Reaper it activated, but would perhaps give him too much power.

Official Star Wars Fact File 107 wrote:However, Obi-Wan was growing uneasy with the power Anakin had wielded, and his Padawan seemed unwilling both to see the risks and, most worrying of all, to acknowledge Obi-Wan as his superior.

Ulic Qel-Droma to Anakin Skywalker, Star Wars The Clone Wars Video Game wrote:"Yes I can teach you to harness the power of the Force around you, making you immune to the Dark Reaper's effects."

Official Star Wars Fact File 107 wrote:Although the knowledge given to Anakin allowed him to destroy the Dark Reaper, Obi-Wan was uncomfortable with the power that his Padawan now wielded.

Star Wars The Clone Wars Prime Official Strategy Guide wrote:Follow the advice of Ulic Qel-Droma throughout this fight and you grow more powerful than you can imagine.

Exar Kun and Ulic Qel-Droma disappeared for years, gaining 'tremendous' power before they reappeared:

Exar Kun successfully shrouds his Force presence from all the Jedi in the Great Library of Ossus; including Odan-Urr and Nomi Sunrider. Before telekinetically tearing a Sith holocron from Urr's telekinetic grasp, then attacking Odan-Urr; resisting his Sever Force attack, before killing him in turn. All on an incredibly strong light side nexus:

Sever Force is actually stated later on to be triggering a mass die off of an opponent's midichlorians, but evidently this doesn't work on Exar Kun:

The power unleashed on Ambria by the ritual is stated to be more dark side energy than ever before called on, by the Jedi Order:

Yet Thon cleansed it entirely:

After killing Odan-Urr, he gains the most powerful Sith holocron ever, the Dark Holocron:

The Essential Guide to Weapons and Technology wrote:The most powerful Sith Holocron contained Sith teachings and histories that covered some hundred thousand years.

This is directly attributed to his rise to power:

Jedi VS. Sith: The Essential Guide to the Force wrote:Exar Kun might not have risen to power so quickly had Odan-Urr destroyed the Sith Holocron when he’d had the chance.

Through this Dark Holocron, Exar Kun reinvented his fighting style using ancient Sith techniques:

Jedi VS. Sith: The Essential Guide to the Force wrote:The construction and use of the first double-bladed lightsaber is sometimes credited to Jedi-turned-Sith Exar Kun, but according to the Tedryn Holocron, Exar Kun assembled his weapon by following instructions from a Sith Holocron, possibly prepared by the Jedi Exiles themselves.

Now described to be unstoppable in lightsaber combat:

The Essential Guide to Weapons and Technology wrote:As the battle against the Jedi escalated, Kun altered his normal lightsaber into a more deadly and dangerous weapon. Kun added a second emitter matrix on the opposite end of the handgrip, allowing him to release two blue-white blades simultaneously. The dark Jedi wielded the saber much as he would a quarterstaff, using one blade to block incoming attacks, then quickly spinning the handgrip to use the second blade to strike a killing blow against his opponent.

Customized controls allowed him to adjust each blade's length from half a meter to one and a half meters. Panels controlled each blade's intensity: at its highest setting, a blade was like any other lightsaber, with the ability to cut through dense materials such as armor plating and durasteel with virtually no resistance. At the lowest power setting, a blade became a simple shaft of light, delivering no damage and providing no resistance against incoming lightsaber attacks. By abruptly shortening a blade or dropping it to the lowest power setting, Kun tricked his opponents into overextending themselves during attacks, giving him an opportunity for a dealy counterstrike. By coupling these tactics with his Force abilities to predict the actions of his opponents, Kun became virtually unstoppable in combat.

The most deadly and potent dueling attack in the arsenal of the assassin Asajj Ventress was an Exar Kun technique:

Savum Tan, a Rodian slave-come-merchant who worked on Yavin IV as a forced laborer, states that Exar Kun caused the ground to tremble around him just with his presence:

Savum Tan, Knights of the Old Republic wrote:There were some ancient Sith temples there, and in them Exar Kun gained terrible powers. He raised the Sith and waged a war against the Republic... much like what seems to be happening today. But Exar Kun was far more powerful than any Sith Lord who has come since. The very ground trembled beneath his feet and when he looked at you, you just...

Exar Kun arrives in the Senate and freezes all those he wished to in place:

Exar Kun then breaks Ulic Qel-Droma free of the temporary Wall of Light that is binding his powers:

Which was formed by the combined power of Master Vodo-Siosk Baas, Master Thon, Nomi, Sylvar, Cay Qel-Droma, Tott Doneeta, Dace Diath, Qrrrl Toq and Shoaneb Culu:

Chronicles of the Old Republic wrote:Meanwhile, Ulic Qel-Droma's role was more strategic, utilizing the Krath military on an all-out assault on Coruscant in the hope of usurping the power of government. Loyal Jedi, including NOMI SUNRIDER, CAY QEL-DROMA, TOTT DONEETA, and Masters VODO-SIOSK BAAS and THON join forces to drive back this threat. The force of light surrounded Ulic, who was caught and his forces repelled.

Exar Kun's reserves of power were beyond the match of Vodo despite maintaining the spell on thousands, if not tens of thousands of Senators:

Power of the Jedi Sourcebook wrote:Ulic’s trial was interrupted by Exar Kun, who met his former Master face to face for the first time since his long descent into darkness. The two fought, and Vodo-Siosk Baas was no match for Exar Kun’s double-bladed lightsaber and deep reserve of dark side power. Vodo-Siosk perished, slain by his former apprentice.

Exar Kun then casually ragdolls Sylvar:

Exar Kun's abilities in lightsaber combat are stated to be beyond those of anyone else in his time by now:

The Essential Guide to Weapons and Technology wrote:By coupling these tactics with his Force abilities to predict the actions of his opponents, Kun became virtually unstoppable in combat.

Exar Kun's sum teachings are stated by Kyp Durron to dwarf all of those taught to him by Luke Skywalker:

Jedi Academy Vol.2: Dark Apprentice wrote:He was enthralled by the new wonders Kun had shown him.

Jedi Academy Vol.3: Champions of the Force wrote:The spirit of Exar Kun had meant to destroy the cloned Jedi student on a whim, as a gesture of power, but Kyp had stopped him, insisting instead that the Sith Lord teach him everything.

Kyp Durron, Jedi Academy Vol.2: Dark Apprentice wrote:"I've learned a great deal beyond your feeble teachings."

This is despite him dwarfing all other students in skill:

Jedi Academy Sourcebook wrote:Kyp travels to Yavin Four to join Luke’s Jedi academy. There, he immerses himself in work, and within days has surpassed the achievements of the other Jedi students. He doesn’t socialize with the others, preferring to concentrate on honing his Jedi skills.

Luke Skywalker was 'astonished' by the lightsaber skills Exar Kun had taught Gantoris:

The Essential Chronology wrote:Before he was ready, Gantoris built his own lightsaber and challenged Skywalker to a duel. The Jedi Master was astonished at his student's skill, but deeply disturbed by the risks he took.

Exar Kun is stated to be the supreme master of the Sith Order:

Exar Kun Supreme Respect Thread (NEW UPDATE 5/27/2022) Screen_Shot_2020-05-22_at_9.28.53_PM
Translation: He is an ambitious Jedi, initiated into the doctrine of the Sith, of which he becomes the supreme master. His ultimate ambition is to restore the Sith empire.

At the height of the Great Sith War, Kun and his brotherhood cause vast amounts of dark side corruption with their presence on the mammoth 27,345 kilometer-wide planet Thule, imbuing much of Thule's crust with dark side energy:

The Complete Star Wars Encyclopedia wrote:During the height of the Great Sith War, Thule served as a base of operations for the Sith Warriors, and much of the planet's crust became imbued with the residue of the dark side of the Force.

Exar Kun and Ulic Qel-Droma attack Ossus, and Exar Kun faces Ood Bnar. Ood Bnar was an incredibly powerful Jedi Master and was considered the wisest in terms of fighting against the dark side of the Force:

Exar Kun Supreme Respect Thread (NEW UPDATE 5/27/2022) Screenshot_20200615-103531_Drive

Ood channeling the planet's immense power is unable to kill Exar Kun with power drawn from Ossus, who walks off the attack:

Tales of the Jedi: Dark Lords of the Sith #6 wrote:Ood resists Kun's attempts to steal the lightsabers by undergoing a final metamorphosis, plunging roots into the ground and driving Kun back with a blast of power drawn from the depths of Ossus.

Ossus had such living Force power that it stopped the planet from being completely obliterated by the direct hits of ten supernova waves:

Exar Kun Supreme Respect Thread (NEW UPDATE 5/27/2022) RwwWUYD
The Unlikely Survival of Ossus Codex Entry wrote:Ossus still bears the scars of the Cron Supernova: its surface is a seared wasteland of rock and sand. But even this degree of desolation is shockingly mild; that the planet was not rendered into a charred ball of molten rock, or even obliterated completely, is nothing short of miraculous.

Little academic work has been put forward to explain this unlikely survival; only conjecture. The initial cause of the supernova was unnatural; perhaps this explains the unnatural results? Ossus was a stronghold of the Jedi; does the inherent life force of such a place make it more resistant to destruction? Could the unique astrophysical structure of the Adega system where Ossus is found have played a role?

Regardless of the reasons, the continued survival of Ossus offers the promise that its ancient mysteries may one day be unlocked.

Ood Bnar weakened from the intense radiation:
Exar Kun Supreme Respect Thread (NEW UPDATE 5/27/2022) Screen_Shot_2020-06-13_at_9.31.29_AM

He has barely clung to life:

New Essential Chronology wrote:When the tree began to move, it revealed itself as Master Ood Bnar, who had clung to life since the firestorm has swept Ossus millennia ago.

Ood, despite weakening, could prevent the attacks of, and obliterate the Emperor-empowered Executor Sedriss:

Dark Empire II Audio Drama wrote:Ood Bnar: GET BACK SKYWALKER! THIS EVIL ONE IS TRYING TO KILL ME! BUT I AM A GREATER MASTER OF THE FORCE THAN HE!!!

The Complete Star Wars Encyclopedia wrote:Several thousand years later on the planet Ossus, Bnar reawakened to help save Jem Ysanna, a young woman with powers in the Force. He ultimately sacrificed himself to destroy the evil Imperial Military Executor Sedriss.

****

The Executor was destroyed by the power of an ancient Jedi, Ood Bnar.

Exar Kun escaped Ossus with more knowledge than he could ever use from the Chamber of Antiquities:

Exar Kun had now become far more powerful than any Jedi:

The Jedi Academy Sourcebook wrote:She discovers the accounts of the Great Sith War, and learns that though Kun was far more powerful than any one other Jedi of the time, a combined force had defeated him.

This would include Ulic Qel-Droma, as it infers that Kun and Qel-Droma are themselves Jedi. Exar Kun is further confirmed to be superior, as Ulic is the Shadow Hand of Exar Kun:

Evil Never Dies: The Sith Dynasties wrote:When Kun and his Shadow Hand Ulic Qel-Droma were defeated, Noon and the other Sith acolytes fled to various parts of the galaxy.
Knights of the Old Republic Campaign Guide wrote:A Shadow Hand's expertise in cruelty, trickery and the dark side are second only to the Master - for now.

Exar Kun was able to influence the 'fabric' of the Old Republic with his power:

Vodo Siosk-Baas, Jedi Academy Vol.2: Dark Apprentice wrote:"Exar Kun worked his invisible threads into the fabric of the Old Republic, bringing downfall through treachery and his distorted abilities with the Force."

Exar Kun is the most powerful dark-sider among the 'New Order' of Sith:

Exar Kun is so powerful now, that he's close to becoming too great for the combined power of the Jedi Order to stop:

Exar Kun was the most powerful and dangerous Dark Lord of the Sith in history as of 3996 B.B.Y:

The Complete Star Wars Encyclopedia wrote:Kun, Exar. Once the most powerful and dangerous of the Dark Lords of the Sith, he was responsible for the deaths of millions four millennia before the Rise of the Empire.

The author of the source, Stephen J. Sansweet, confirmed this:

The Ritual of Yavin IV

Exar Kun with little understanding and no preparation, used a ritual on a planetary scale, draining the power and life force of all of the Massassi on the moon. He became an anchorless spirit that was 'all-powerful' and could not be destroyed by the combined power of the entire united Jedi Order:

The Holocron of Vodo Siosk-Baas, Jedi Academy Vol.2: Dark Apprentice wrote:"All the Jedi banded together and came to the jungle moon in a united front against the Sith stronghold Exar Kun had built. The allied Jedi combined their power into a massive annihilating strike."
Exar Kun, Jedi Academy Vol.2: Dark Apprentice wrote:"Good! I am glad to see you have learned to respect me. Four thousand years ago the entire military fleet of the Old Republic and the combined forces of hundreds of Jedi Masters could not destroy me. You would certainly be unable to do so alone."
Massassi Temples, Star Wars Databank wrote:Exar Kun used the power of the dark side of the Force to seal his consciousness into one of the temples. To do so, he drew upon the power of all the Massassi, bringing about the extinction of the race.
Exar Kun Supreme Respect Thread (NEW UPDATE 5/27/2022) Scree138
Exar Kun Supreme Respect Thread (NEW UPDATE 5/27/2022) Scree139

Jedi records indicate that the whole Jedi Order was required to actually defeat him:

Tionne Solusar, Jedi Academy Volume 3: Champions of the Force wrote:"Though Kun had enormous power, it seems that the key was that the other Jedi combined their might. They fought together as a unit where all the pieces fit together, as components in a much larger machine powered by the Force."

Exar Kun manages to survive the attack, but his body has been husked and his power has been lost, and thus he slowly dies:
Exar Kun Supreme Respect Thread (NEW UPDATE 5/27/2022) Star-w10
Exar Kun Supreme Respect Thread (NEW UPDATE 5/27/2022) 20210712

Exar Kun then uses his power to become a spirit, encysted within the Temples:

Exar Kun, Star Wars Databank wrote:Finally, a joint Republic and Jedi taskforce came to Yavin 4 to capture Exar Kun. He knew he could not survive the attack, so he summoned his dark side energies and trapped his consciousness into the temples his Massassi warriors had built for him.

The ritual caused massive devastation and evidently destroyed the Temple of Fire, the largest temple ever built on Yavin IV, due to the power unleashed:

Exar Kun after the ritual released his spirit, could retain his full power and traverse the cosmos without an anchor:

Exar Kun was attacked by a Jedi strike force unlike any force gathered before:

Jedi Academy Vol.3: Champions of the Force wrote:When Master Vodo did not succeed, the other Jedi banded together in a massive strike force such as had never before been gathered.

Exar Kun faced tens of thousands of Jedi:

Knights of the Old Republic Campaign Guide wrote:The Jedi Order went from tens of thousands in the Sith War to barely a hundred in the Dark Wars.

The combined power of the Jedi Order in a single attack was incapable of completely defeating Exar Kun's spirit:

Star Wars the Old Republic: Timeline 'The Exar Kun War' wrote:The Republic drove Kun back to Yavin 4, where the Dark Lord enacted a ritual, sacrificing his armies to keep his spirit alive. Though unable to defeat him entirely, the Jedi were able to imprison Exar Kun's spirit in the temples on Yavin 4. From what we know, it remains there to this day.

Exar Kun engaged in a 'titanic battle' against the Jedi Order, when he lost, indicating a very close fight:

- Star Wars Galaxy Magazine #8

Exar Kun prides himself on this achievement and takes this as proof that he was unrivalled in power in his time:

I, Jedi wrote:I let Streen fill Kun with our resolve to unite and defeat him, but Kun's contempt for us came rolling back along the line like an echo. He had faced fleets of ships and all the known Jedi. He had slain his own master. His power was unrivaled. He had defeated our Master and beyond our resolve to fight, we had no operative plans and nothing with which to challenge him. We were snacks he would devour at his leisure, not morsels that might choke him.

Exar Kun's powers, however, were extinguished by the Wall of Light:

Unfortunately for Kun, his body was destroyed by the Wall of Light:

Yavin IV, Star Wars Databank wrote:The Jedi task force succeeded in killing Kun's body, but the assault also laid waste to many of Yavin 4's jungles and killed what few Massassi were left.

Exar Kun manages to survive by anchoring his spirit to the Jedi temples:

Dark Side Sourcebook wrote:Exar Kun-who didn't technically die so much as merge with the dark side and retain his identity-resisted the dissolution of his spirit by drawing on the remarkable focusing energies of the Massassi temples on Yavin 4.

Exar Kun's knowledge was lost with him when he died:

Jedi Academy Vol.II: Dark Apprentice wrote:"I could show you techniques that were lost thousands of years ago, secret rites and hidden doorways to power that no weak Jedi Master like Skywalker dares to touch."
Jedi Academy Sourcebook wrote:"The dark knowledge of the Sith teachings died with Kun, it is extremely unlikely that any records survive, either on Yavin IV or elsewhere."

Kun being able to withstand the complete desolation of life on Yavin IV is incredibly impressive, and may be compared to the stated power paradigm of Tenebrae and Revan:

Exar Kun Supreme Respect Thread (NEW UPDATE 5/27/2022) Scree144
Exar Kun Supreme Respect Thread (NEW UPDATE 5/27/2022) Image023

Exar Kun's presence is felt by the Jedi and Sith, some 350 years later:

Satele Shan, Shadow of Revan wrote:"You sense it too. Not the ancient Sith, or the Emperor. Not Revan. Another presence... different from the rest."

The Hero of Tython & Satele Shan, Shadow of Revan wrote:"The Emperor is here, I can feel his presence. I'd know it anywhere. But he isn't alone."

"The Emperor isn't the only Sith to have left his mark on this world."

The convergence of the spirits of Exar Kun, Naga Sadow, Tulak Hord and Marka Ragnos give rise to the being known as the Ancient Threat:

Star Wars The Old Republic website wrote:Long-forgotten Sith spirits have awakened on Yavin 4. This convergence of dark side energies could give rise to a powerful and ancient threat within the moon's already-treacherous jungles.

This 'Ancient Threat' was capable of blocking all attacks from the Strike Team that faced Revan at the Temple of Sacrifice without the knowledge to bypass its defenses:

Exar Kun Supreme Respect Thread (NEW UPDATE 5/27/2022) Swtor-10

Even after the Wall of Light was unleashed on Yavin IV, the dark side nexus of Yavin IV was an entire level above Oricon, which is considered even stronger than Great Galactic War era Korriban, due to the likes of Naga Sadow, Freedon Nadd and Exar Kun:

Exar Kun Supreme Respect Thread (NEW UPDATE 5/27/2022) Screen14

The Dark Legacy of Yavin Four Part III Codex Entry wrote:Just as Naga Sadow trained his eventual replacement, so did Freedon Nadd's spirit find a powerful apprentice in Exar Kun. And just as Nadd killed his lord Sadow, Kun destroyed Nadd's spirit here on Yavin 4. These notable deaths likely served to further imbue the moon's temples with dark power, further fueling the barbaric Massassi--as well as the succession of Dark Lords who would later reside here.

Yavin Four Codex Entry wrote:Yavin 4 also holds a great deal of interest to the Jedi and the Sith. For well over a thousand years now, the dark side of the Force has flowed through Yavin 4 in an ever-increasing magnitude. But those who visit the moon's deadly rainforests and swamps in search of an explanation for the phenomenon rarely return, and never with any answers.

The Dark Legacy of Yavin Four Part IV wrote:A few hundred years ago, the Jedi Order thought they could cleanse Yavin 4 of its dark influence. They were more aggressive then. I’m actually impressed. The Jedi bombarded the world from orbit with a destructive manifestation of light side power in the hopes it would free the moon from its dark embrace. “The attacking Jedi destroyed much of the life on Yavin 4, which they later worked to restore to its previous state. They thought they’d won, that they’d removed the influence of the dark side. How wrong they were.

Exar Kun's ability to return as a spirit was prevented by a city established by the Jedi deep under the surface of Yavin IV:

Knights of the Old Republic Campaign Guide wrote:The Jedi launch a salvo of light side energy at the planet, trapping Kun's spirit there, but ravaging Yavin 4 in the process. Afterward, the Jedi built a city deep underground to nurture the world back to health and guarantee Kun never returns.

Exar Kun was limited in his ability to directly effect anything physical as a purely non-physical spiritual entity:

Exar Kun's spirit awoke months after the destruction of the Death Star, where he possessed and imbued his power into a team of archeologists, attempting to eventually facilitate his return to the galaxy and achieving Godhood:

'Chapter 9: The Fury of Exar Kun' announcement, Star Wars Galaxies, LucasArts wrote:Hidden below the Temple of Exar Kun on Yavin 4 lays the tomb of this legendary Sith Lord. Exar Kun's spirit is so strong and malevolence so great, that he has withstood death for 4,000 years, waiting for an opportunity to finally obtain the godhood he so desires. A group of archeologists excavating nearby have discovered the tomb's crumbled antechamber, and as they explored deeper, have succumbed to Exar Kun's powerful will. Players must eliminate each of the now twisted but powerful archeologists on their way to finally put the spirit of Exar Kun to rest.

Domain of Evil, Star Wars Galaxies website wrote:The mysteries of Exar Kun remain hidden even today as the evil buried there continues to seethe, waiting for a chance to rise once more… maybe sooner than expected. Currently, as the Galactic Civil War continues to rage, Rebel forces have moved into the Temple of Exar Kun. A team of archaeologists has been searching the remaining temples on Yavin 4 to find lost Sith artifacts.
While exploring the Temple of Exar Kun, the team stumbled upon undiscovered catacombs hidden deep underground. What will they discover in the depths of the temple? Find out in an exciting new heroic encounter coming in Chapter 9!

Q:Where did the idea for a TCG based on Star Wars Galaxies come from?
Joe Alread: People were really enjoying Legends of Norrath, really enjoying the game and the unique story that came from it. This gave us some incintive to branch out with Star Wars Galaxies. Champions of the Force is going to have its own unique story-line and raids, much like Legends of Norrath.

Q: What kind of story-line can we expect?

11 YEARS AFTER THE BATTLE OF YAVIN

Exar Kun through sheer willpower returned from Chaos to prevent the resurrection of the Jedi Order on Yavin IV:

Star Wars Insider 88 - Evil Never Dies: The Sith Dynasties Online Supplement. wrote:Seven years after the Battle of Endor, when Luke Skywalker established an academy with the intention of rebuilding the Jedi Order, the spirit of the ancient Sith Lord Exar Kun returned to prevent the Jedi Brotherhood's resurrection. Three short years later, another Sith daemon, this time the Dark Lord Marka Ragnos, also was called back from the realm of Chaos to terrorize the galaxy.

Only one dark-sider has been confirmed to be able to do so of his own volition, that's Darth Sidious:

The Complete Star Wars Encyclopedia wrote:Palpatine's body was destroyed. Separated from his clones, Palpatine was forced to survive in the maddening, bodiless existence of the void. Through sheer will he retained his identity, crossing the gulf of space to again take up residence in his clone body.

The spirit of Exar Kun planned to bend the galaxy to his will, and was more dangerous than the Imperial Remnant and its arsenal of superweapons:

Exar Kun Supreme Respect Thread (NEW UPDATE 5/27/2022) Screen15

Exar Kun's able to show what is happening on another planet across the galaxy, in real-time:

Jedi Academy Vol.II: Dark Apprentice wrote:The dark man laughed again. "Serenity? Let me show you what is happening at this moment. Do you recall the people you saved from Eol Sha? How happy you were to learn they had been taken to a place of safety, a paradise world? Observe."

Inside the black cut-out form of the hooded man, an image appeared, displaying the grasslands of the planet Dantooine. The scene looked familiar to Gantoris after seeing the progress tapes delivered by Wedge Antilles.

But now he saw Imperial lasers striking down, leveling colony buildings, giant armored walkers striding across the savanna, blasting anything that moved, igniting the temporary living units. People ran screaming. His people.

Gantoris recognized most of their faces, but before he could name them, they dissolved one by one in brilliant flashes as they tried to flee. The trees blazed in conical bonfires; black clumpy smoke rose in jagged swirls.

Exar Kun is an 'infinitely black' silhouette with eyes 'as bottomless as the universe itself', that 'sucked energy' from the air:

Jedi Academy Vol.2: Dark Apprentice wrote:Anakin turned from the illusory Massassi laborers below. He met Luke's gaze with eyes as bottomless as the universe itself.

the image of Anakin Skywalker became less distinct, wavering, until it transformed into only a black outline, an engulfing hooded form that sucked energy from the air.

Gantoris whirled to see the oily, infinitely black silhouette ooze out of the massive stones in the wall.

The Second Resurrection of Exar Kun

Exar Kun's spirit possessed Kyp Durron when the youth fully opened up to him:

New Essential Chronology wrote:He opened himself to the spirit of the Sith Lord Exar Kun, convincing himself that Kun's power could be harnessed for noble purposes. Instead, the dark energies trampled over Durron's naïvité.

Exar Kun outright possesses Kyp Durron:

Exar Kun Supreme Respect Thread (NEW UPDATE 5/27/2022) 20190813

The possession was so strong that Kyp was incapable of thinking for himself after Kun asserts full control over him across a number of weeks, rendering distance obsolete as Kun has physically left part of his power in Kyp:

Jedi Academy Sourcebook wrote:Over a number of weeks, Kun slowly bends Kyp to his will, and begins to augment his power. He grows very powerful on Kyp's hate, and soon his hold on Kyp is so complete that he can send Kyp beyond the planet to do his will and still retain control over his subject.

Champions of the Force wrote:Troubled by that voice, Kyp had stolen a ship and fled to the forest moon of Endor to meditate beside the ashes of Darth Vader's funeral pyre. He had thought to go far enough away to escape Kun's influence, but he no longer thought that was possible.
Kyp had traveled to the Core Systems, but still he felt the chains binding him to the Dark Lord, the malevolent obligations required by the Sith teachings. If he tried to resist and think for himself, the angry tauntings returned with full force, the snapped words, the coercions, the veiled threats.

In fact, Kun's so superior he 'toyed' with Kyp:

Exar Kun Supreme Respect Thread (NEW UPDATE 5/27/2022) Screenshot_20201202-081820_Discord

With full mental control over Kyp Durron, Exar Kun is able to use Kyp as a host body for his spirit. The most overt example of this, is this fight between Kyp Durron and Corran Horn:

I, Jedi wrote:"You are not my master!" Kyp pointed back toward the dining room, "He is not my master! What good is it being a Jedi if we do not act?"
"What good is it being Jedi if we don't act responsibly?" I hauled myself upright, "Remember Kyp, the 'no good Jedi' kicked Kun's butt.." Kyp struck at me again through the Force but I expected it this time, I absorbed enough of it to let me create a shield.
"You're involved with someone who lost a long time ago, don't compound his error."
`"And who will stop me?" I hesitated because Kyp's words seemed to echo within themselves, we were not alone, which meant Kyp's mentor had come to aid his apprentice.
"I will, if you make it necessary." An ancient sneer of contempt twisted Kyp's features.
"Puny Jedi, you are of no concern to me." Even though I had braced myself for another attack, it did no good. Kyp's previous blows were like light breezes compared to this full-on gale. I slammed back into the wall with teeth rattling-impact.`

Kyp Durron is full of more power than he can handle now:

Jedi Academy Vol.2: Dark Apprentice wrote:Kyp felt his skin tingling with barely contained power, as if his blood had begun to fizz inside of him. He moved down the temple corridors like a projectile, and when he reached the heavy door to his quarters, he used the force to fling it open and slam it against the far wall with enough strength to flake a long splinter of stone from the blocks.

Jedi Academy Vol.2: Dark Apprentice wrote:Exar Kun had shown him how to unleash great powers. Kyp did not trust the Sith Lord, but he could not deny the truth of what the shadow man taught. Kyp could see the power actually working.

A greater understanding of this can also be found here:

The Jedi Academy Sourcebook wrote:Exar Kun passed the millennia in uneasy slumber.
A few scant years later, Kun is brought sharply awake by the arrival of not one or two, but a dozen humans blazing with the power he needed to live again. Eagerly but cautiously, Kun observes each arrival, probing for weaknesses and the power he needs to restore his lost reserves of energy. For a time, he is able to subside by feeding on their residual energy, but soon he will need worshippers if he is to grow more active. With a nucleus of followers to provide him energy-providing anger and fear, Kun will have enough power to escape his exile and take on human form. To his surprise, Kun recognizes the leader to be the same man who had visited Yavin Four years earlier, now much more powerful in the Force. Too powerful, for the moment, for Kun to tackle.
Kun finds Gantoris, strong-willed and impatient to learn, to be a more promising first candidate. He easily seduces Gantoris in the same manner that Nadd had seduced him—by promising forbidden knowledge and the truly powerful Jedi secrets Gantoris cannot wait to learn. Carefully building up and feeding on the anger of his first apprentice, Kun grows in power. Soon he feels confident to make an attempt to subvert Luke, knowing that if he can sway the teacher, the students will all follow. Kun, posing as Anakin Skywalker, appears to Luke and attempts to pull him toward the forbidden Sith teachings by tempting him to use Sith power to seize control of the New Republic and destroy the Empire. Realizing that this shade is not that of his father, Luke rejects the offer.
Enraged and drained, Kun returns to Gantoris. Desperate for more energy, he goads Gantoris to new heights of anger by showing him the Eol Sha colonists dying on Dantooine. Gantoris is pushed too far, however, and turns on his Sith master. Realizing that Gantoris is no longer his, Kun utterly drains him to provide himself a reserve of energy to last until he can subvert more students.
Kun has just begun edging in on Streen when Kyp Durron arrives at the Jedi Academy. Kun immediately senses in the young man his ideal subject. Like Gantoris, Kyp is strong-willed and impatient to learn. Moreover, he is far more powerful than the Eol Sha leader, and young enough to be overconfident and naive.
Over a number of weeks, Kun slowly bends Kyp to his will, and begins to augment his power. He grows very powerful on Kyp's hate, and soon his hold on Kyp is so complete that he can send Kyp beyond the planet to do his will and still retain control over his subject. Ultimately, he has Kyp return to Yavin Four and helps him reclaim the Sun Crusher. He also bolsters Kyp's talents to allow him to defeat Luke and place him in a coma.

The Jedi Academy Sourcebook wrote:Exar Kun himself possessed a great many other dark powers that he was unable to harness without the energy he needed to fuel his disembodied will. Some of these powers he was able to channel through Kyp, Gantoris, and Streen to achieve his ends.

Exar Kun himself states that he will be able to live again, if he gains enough Sith followers:

Exar Kun, Jedi Academy Vol.II: Dark Apprentice wrote:"I want your anger, Gantoris. I want you to open the doorways of power. I am barred from the physical plane--but with enough other Sith followers, I could be at peace. I could even live again."

Exar Kun's spirit through Kyp Durron could become more powerful than any threat the New Republic had yet faced:

Exar Kun Supreme Respect Thread (NEW UPDATE 5/27/2022) 20201011

Luke Skywalker sensed that Exar Kun was a greater threat than Kyp Durron:

Jedi Academy Vol.2: Dark Apprentice wrote:His best students were going sour, getting impatient, trying to push the limits of their abilities. But he had sensed a greater, deeper menace that vibrated within the very stones of the Great Temple itself. . . evil, and well hidden.

Exar Kun's spirit aids Kyp Durron in levelling Corran Horn so hard he was knocked out whilst simultaneously masking the attack from the senses of a hall full of Jedi merely fifteen meters away, including Luke Skywalker himself who was already actively searching for Kun:

I, Jedi wrote:The Force blow he aimed at me glanced off my chest, yet it was strong enough to bounce me off the corrider wall. I managed to catch myself against the rough stone, but not before I'd slid half-way down the wall.

"You are not my master!" Kyp pointed back toward the dining room, "He is not my master! What good is it being a Jedi if we do not act?"

"What good is it being Jedi if we don't act responsibly?" I hauled myself upright, "Remember Kyp, the 'no good Jedi' kicked Kun's butt.." Kyp struck at me again through the Force but I expected it this time, I absorbed enough of it to let me create a shield.

"You're involved with someone who lost a long time ago, don't compound his error."

"And who will stop me?" I hesitated because Kyp's words seemed to echo within themselves, we were not alone, which meant Kyp's mentor had come to aid his apprentice.

"I will, if you make it necessary." An ancient sneer of contempt twisted Kyp's features.

"Puny Jedi, you are of no concern to me." Even though I had braced myself for another attack, it did no good. Kyp's previous blows were like light breezes compared to this full-on gale. I slammed back into the wall with teeth rattling-impact.

****

"What happened to you?"

"Kyp didn't like the menu." I winced as a twing rang through my ribs. "We had a discussion in the hallway, you didn't feel anything?" Heads all around the hallway shook, and I felt a cold dread begin to congeal in my stomach. If Exar Kun could mask the attack on me in such a way that Master Skywalker could not feel it barely fifteen meters away, then we were up against something more powerful than I'd cared to imagine existing.

Kyp's power grows even further:

Jedi Academy Vol.II: Dark Apprentice wrote:Exar Kun was long dead, and Darth Vader lay in ashes on Endor. "Now I am the Lord of the Sith," Kyp said. With that admission he felt a cold strength creep up his backbone, as if his spine had turned into a column of ice.

Jedi Academy Vol.II: Dark Apprentice wrote:Filled with a power he had decided to use to its fullest, he felt ready to explode in an exhilarating outpouring of the Force--but he could not let such childish demonstrations seduce him. He had a mission to accomplish, one that would affect the future of the entire galaxy.

Kyp's return to Yavin Four caused a reaction from the entire rainforest:

Jedi Academy Vol.II: Dark Apprentice wrote:Above him the night sky was lush with stars, and the stirrings of the surrounding jungle wove a tapestry of hushed sounds. But the insects made their music more quietly, and few large animals crashed through the underbrush. The entire rain forest seemed stunned by Kyp's return

Exar Kun aids Kyp Durron with power that made a focal point-amped Kyp comparably 'feeble':

Jedi Academy Vol.2: Dark Apprentice wrote:“Exar Kun, help me,” Kyp said, closing his eyes.
He reached out with his mind, following the paths of the Force that led to every object in the universe, drawing power from the cosmic focal point of the Massassi temple. He searched, sending his thoughts like a probe deep into the storm systems of the gas giant. Behind him, Kyp felt the black-ice power of Exar Kun arise, tapping into him and reinforcing his abilities. His own feeble exploratory touch suddenly plunged forward like a blaster bolt. Kyp felt larger, a part of the jungle moon, then a part of the entire planetary system, until he burrowed into the heart of the gas giant itself.The Sun Crusher approached like a long, sharp thorn of crystalline alloy, cruising upright on its long axis. The toroidal resonance-torpedo launcher hung at the bottom of the long hook. It looked beautiful. The Sun Crusher descended through the jungle moon’s atmosphere, straight down—like a spike to impale the Great Temple. Kyp controlled it, slowed its descent, until the superweapon hovered to a stop, suspended in front of him.
As the sky brightened with planetrise, the alloy hull of the Sun Crusher seemed as pristine as a firefacet gem, scoured of all oxidation and debris by the intense temperatures and pressures at the core of Yavin. The Sun Crusher looked clean, and deadly, and ready for him.
“Thank you, Exar Kun,” Kyp whispered.

Summoning the Suncrusher was deemed to be the kind of power required by Master Luke, and thus his defeat isn't surprising in this light:

Jedi Academy Vol.III: Champions of the Force wrote:She whispered, "Could Kyp have resurrected the Sun Crusher from the core of Yavin?"

Han blinked. "How could he possibly do that?"

Cilghal hung her head gravely. "If Kyp Durron has managed that, then his power is far greater even than we feared. No wonder he was able to defeat Master Skywalker."

Indeed, Kyp Durron believed they'd all need to pool their powers to achieve such a feat:

Jedi Academy Vol.2: Dark Apprentice wrote:"If we pool our Jedi powers, we can resurrect the Sun Crusher, tear it out from the core of Yavin. We can take it and go hunt the Imperials. What could be a clearer mission for us? Why are we just hiding here on this backwater moon?"

Luke Skywalker senses a 'black whirlpool of twisted Force' after Kyp Durron causes a 'great disturbance in the Force':

Jedi Academy Vol.II: Dark Apprentice wrote:Luke Skywalker awoke from another series of nightmares. He sat bolt upright on his pallet, instantly aware. He had felt a great disturbance in the Force. Something was not right.

He got up, moving cautiously as he sent out his thoughts to check on his students: Kirana Ti, Dorsk 81, the new Calamarian arrival Cilghal, Streen, Tionne, Kam Solusar, and all the others. Nothing seemed amiss. They slept soundly--almost too soundly, as if a net of sleep had been cast over them.

When he reached out farther, he was stunned to feel a cold, black whirlpool of twisted Force around the peak of the temple. It stunned him.

Luke sprinted to the door of his chambers, hesitated, then stepped back to retrieve his lightsaber. He marched down the corridors, smoothing his fear as he rode the turbolift to the upper levels of the ancient pyramid.

Calm, Yoda had said, you must remain calm.

But the sight that greeted him under the dawn sky nearly overwhelmed Luke.

The Sun Crusher hung suspended over the temple, still steaming in the morning air, resurrected from its tomb at the core of the gas giant. Kyp Durron spun around to stare at Luke, his black cape swirling with the rapid motion.

Stunned, Luke reeled backward. "How dare you bring that weapon back!" he said. "It goes against all the Jedi knowledge I have taught you."

The spirit of Exar Kun is a focal point of dark side energy:

Specter of the Past wrote:There in front of him, starkly visible against the blackness of space, he could see the faint images of Emperor Palpatine and Exar Kun, two of the greatest focal points of the dark side he’d ever had to face. They were standing there before him, gazing back at him. And laughing.

Against Exar Kun and Kyp Durron's attacks, all of Master Luke Skywalker's knowledge and power is useless:

Exar Kun Supreme Respect Thread (NEW UPDATE 5/27/2022) Docume10
Jedi Academy Vol.2: Dark Apprentice wrote:Kyp made a dismissive gesture with one hand, and a sudden wave of dark ripples splashed across the air like the shock front of a concussion grenade. Luke stumbled backward. The lightsaber turned cold in his hand. Frost crystals grew in feathery patterns around the handle. At the core of the brilliant green blade a shadow appeared, a black disease rotting away the purity of the beam. The humming blade sputtered, sounding like a sickly cough. The black taint rapidly grew stronger, swallowing up the green beam. With a frizzle of sparks Luke’s lightsaber died.
Trying to control his growing fear, Luke felt a sudden brush of cold behind him. He turned to see a black, hooded silhouette—the image that had impersonated Anakin Skywalker in Luke’s nightmare…the dark man who had lured Gantoris into a devastating loss of control.
Kyp’s voice came as if from a great distance. “At last, Master Skywalker, you can meet my mentor—Exar Kun.”
Luke dropped his useless lightsaber and crouched. His every muscle suddenly coiled and tensed. He rallied all the powers of the Force around him, seeking any defensive tactic. With the Sun Crusher looming behind him, Kyp stretched out both hands and blasted Luke with lightning bolts like black cracks in the Force. Dark tendrils rose up from the gaps in the temple flagstones, fanged, illusionary vipers that struck at him from all sides. Luke cried out and tried to strike back, but the shadows of Exar Kun joined the attack, adding more deadly force. The ancient Dark Lord of the Sith lashed out with waves of blackness, driving long icicles of frozen poison into Luke’s body.
He thrashed, but felt helpless. To lose control to anger and desperation would be as great a failure as if he did nothing at all. Luke called upon the powers that Yoda and Obi-Wan had taught him—but everything he did, every skillful technique, failed utterly.

Kyp Durron by himself is equal to or more powerful than Master Luke:

Exar Kun binds Luke Skywalker's spirit with his power, Luke only escapes when Kun is destroyed:

Jedi Academy Vol.3: Champions of the Force wrote:With a wheezing cough as he expelled long-trapped air from his lungs and drew in a fresh breath, Master Skywalker groaned and sat up on the stone platform.

"You've-done it!" Luke said, gaining strength from each lungful of cool, clean air. The new Jedi Knights surged toward him. "You have broken the bonds."

The Complete Star Wars Encyclopedia wrote:Later, Jacen joined forces with the other Jedi students in destroying Exar Kun's spirit forever and freeing Luke's spirit.

****

Later she became one of Skywalker's Jedi candidates and joined his other Jedi students on Yavin IV in defeating the spirit of Dark Lord Exar Kun, protecting Luke's body and freeing his spirit.

Exar Kun's spirit alone was powerful enough to defeat Master Skywalker, per the students:

Jedi Academy Vol.3: Champions of the Force wrote:Afraid to challenge the dark power that had been sufficient to warp other students and defeat Master Skywalker.

This was Luke Skywalker in his prime as of this point:

I, Jedi wrote:When we had met before I had felt power in him, but now, after his experiences with the Emperor Reborn, his power had been redoubled. Physically he looked a bit haggard and worn, with the flesh around his eyes having tightened and wrinkles appearing at their corners. I knew we were the same age chronologically, but in experience he far surpassed me.

And he became even more powerful when he realized his powers as a spirit:

New Rebellion wrote:Luke was raising his lightsaber, his heart pounding. He was reaching out with the Force, going back to the place he had gone when he first fought Exar Kun. He would be out of his body but protected within the Force. Just as Ben had done in his battle with Darth Vader.

Luke would come back even stronger, and he would guide Leia to defeat Kueller.

It's said that the prior two feats; drawing out the Suncrusher and taking down Luke, severely depleted Exar Kun's energy:

Corran Horn, Jedi VS. Sith: The Essential Guide to the Force wrote:"The only vaguely positive explanation for Exar Kun’s dormancy that I could come up with was that his effort to draw the Sun Crusher from Yavin and to down Luke had tired him out."

Corran Horn attempted to rationalize away Exar Kun's power, but realizes Kun is genuinely more powerful than Luke Skywalker:

I, Jedi wrote:The despair in her voice found an ally in the fear writhing into my belly. It had never seemed odd to me that Kyp had been able to slam me into a wall because he had always been more powerful than me. Even when I felt the other presence reinforcing him and got hammered by the combination of them, I never imagined that they could be more powerful than Luke Skywalker. I had even rationalized away the dark man's ability to avoid detection as his being talented in that area, just as I was talented in the area of image projection.

The pure arrogance and stupidity of those ideas slammed hard into me.

Exar Kun almost consumes Luke Skywalker's spirit:

Exar Kun Supreme Respect Thread (NEW UPDATE 5/27/2022) Screen34

Exar Kun summoned a cyclone that would've launched the Jedi Leia thousands of feet into the air or 'smashed' her against temple stones, the temperature of this storm was so low that it caused icicles to form:

Champions of the Force wrote:Streen!

The old Bespin hermit stood on the outskirts of the storm with his brown Jedi robe flapping around him. His wild gray hair writhed around his head as if charged with static. His lips mumbled something incomprehensible, and his eyes remained closed as if he were having a nightmare. Leia knew that even powerful Jedi could not manipulate large-scale phenomena like the weather; but they could move objects, and she realized that was what Streen did now. Not changing the weather, but simply moving the air, drawing it in from all directions, creating a self-contained but destructive tornado that struck toward Luke's body.

"No!" she shouted into the starving wind.

"Streen!"

The cyclone struck Luke, buffeted his body, and lifted it into the air.

Leia ran toward her paralyzed brother, feet barely touching the ground as the powerful winds knocked her sideways. The storm wrenched her off balance, and she found herself thrown through the air, flying like an insect toward the stone walls. She spun around and reached out, calming herself enough to use her own abilities with the Force, to nudge her body away. Instead of being crushed against the stone blocks, she slid softly to the floor.

Luke's body continued rising, tugged upward by the hurricane. His Jedi robe wound around him as the winds spun him like a corpse launched out of a star-freighter air lock into the grave of space.

Streen didn't seem aware of what he was doing.

Leia staggered to her feet again and jumped. This time she rode the circling air currents, flying around the fringe of the cyclone toward her helpless brother. She reached out to grab the tail of his robe, felt her fingers clutch rough fabric, and then burn as the robe was snatched away from her. She fell back to the floor.

Luke had been drawn up into the tornado's mouth, rising toward the skylights.

"Luke!" she cried. "Please help me."

She had no idea if he could hear her, or if he could do anything.

Gathering strength in her leg muscles, she leaped into the air again. It might be possible to use her Jedi skills of levitation for a brief moment; Luke had done it several times, although she herself had never mastered the skill.

Now, though, it mattered more than it ever had before. As Leia sprang upward, the wind caught her. She rose high enough to grab Luke's body. She wrapped her arms around his waist, twisted her legs around his ankles, holding him, hoping her weight would drag him down.

But as they started to drop, the winds picked up in intensity, howling and roaring. Leia's skin went numb from the blinding wintry cold. They shot toward the roof of the grand audience chamber, toward the widest skylight, where jagged icicles hung like javelins.

Leia suddenly knew what Streen intended to do to them, whether consciously or unconsciously. They would be sucked out of the Great Temple, tossed high into the sky, and then allowed to crash thousands of feet to the spear-pointed branches of the jungle canopy.

The turbolift door opened. Kirana Ti charged out, followed by Tionne and Kam Solusar.

"Stop Streen!" Leia shouted.

Kirana Ti reacted instantly. She wore thin but supple red armor from the scaled hides of reptiles from Dathomir. She had been a warrior on her own world, fighting with untrained and unhoned skill in the Force, but she had also fought in physical combat as well.

Kirana Ti launched herself forward on long, muscular legs, ducking her head as she charged into the cyclonic wind that surrounded Streen. The old hermit stood entranced, spinning slowly around with his arms dangling at his sides and his fingertips spread apart, as if trying to catch something.

Kirana Ti staggered as she hit the wind, but she wrenched her head aside, spread her legs, and dug the toes of her bare feet against the stone floor for traction. She shoved forward into the wind and finally shattered through into the dead zone of the storm. She tackled Streen to the flagstoned floor and locked his arms behind his back. Streen cried out, then blinked his eyes open. He looked wildly around in confusion. Instantly the wind stopped blowing. The air fell still. High up at the ceiling of the grand audience chamber Leia and Luke plunged toward the unforgiving flagstones below. Luke fell like a doll, and Leia tried to remember how to use her levitation skills, but her mind went blank with panic.

Tionne and Kam Solusar raced forward, stretching out their arms, using what they had been taught. Less than a meter above the crushing stones, Leia found herself slowed, pausing in the air beside Luke's body. They drifted gently to the floor. Leia cradled Luke against her, but her brother did not respond.

Jedi Academy Sourcebook wrote:Some of these powers he was able to channel through Kyp, Gantoris, and Streen to achieve his ends.

I, Jedi wrote:My thinking was that Kun, still taxed from his having funneled enough power through Streen to create that cyclone

Exar Kun's telepathic assault was faster than a nano-second, which was fast enough to block out Mara Jade:

I, Jedi wrote:I felt tendrils of the Force snake out from her and probe the fringes of my mind. “But that’s not where you live.”

I concentrated for a nanosecond and shut her out of my mind. “No. I was attracted to the old pilot billets on the ground floor.”

Mara Jade smiled and I found it all too predatory for me. “Then I’ll look there first for a place to stay. If you don’t mind.”

I, Jedi wrote:"Quite droll, Keiran, not as full of anger or fear as the others." Exar Kun's obsidian gaze bored into me. I tried to armor my mind against him the way I had with Mara Jade, but he was in and out too quickly for me to stop him. "You have more experience and more maturity. You are a riper fruit."

Despite the fact Exar Kun's energy sources were gone, as Kyp was across the galaxy and Streen was fighting against him:

Jedi Academy Sourcebook wrote:She[Tionne] supposes that the students have a chance of defeating him, since Kun no longer has his servants to draw power from, he[Streen] is his only source.

Exar Kun is eventually defeated when trapped in a Wall of Light, attacked with the weapon he created and then having his shredded energies sent into the void:

Jedi Academy Vol.III: Champions of the Force wrote:The glow continued to brighten as the synergy between the trainees grew more powerful, weaving threads to reinforce their weak spots, to emphasize their strengths.

Streen wasn't sure exactly when another image joined the Jedi candidates. He saw a new form without a physical body-short and hunched, with withered hands held in front of it. A misshapen funnel face, whiskered with tentacles, stared with small eyes hooded by a shelf of brow. Streen recognized the ancient Jedi Master Vodo-Siosk Baas, who had spoken to them from the Holocron.

Kun's image also saw the ancient Jedi Master, and his expression froze in a sculpted grimace of astonishment.

"Together Jedi can overcome their weaknesses," Master Vodo said in a bubbly, congested voice.

"Exar Kun, my student-you are defeated at last."

"No!" the shadow screamed in a night-rending voice as the silhouette fought to discover a part of the circle he could breach.

"Yes," came another voice, a strong voice. Opposite Master Vodo glimmered the faint, washed-out form of a young man in Jedi robes. Master Skywalker.

"The way to extinguish a shadow," Cilghal said in her calm and confident voice, "is to increase the light."

Kirana Ti stepped forward with the lightsaber that had been built by Gantoris. Streen met her with Luke Skywalker's lightsaber. The two stared into each other's eyes, nodded, and then struck with the brilliant luminous blades.

Their beams crossed in the middle of Exar Kun's shadowy body-pure light intersecting pure light with an explosion of lightning. The flash of dazzling white seemed as bright as an exploding sun.

Darkness flooded out of the shade of Exar Kun. The blackness shattered, and fragments flew around the circle, seeking a weak heart in which to hide. Streen and Kirana Ti kept their lightsabers crossed, the energy sizzling and searing.

With the Force, Streen touched the winds again. The air inside the grand audience chamber swirled with increasing coriolis force to form a whirlwind. The cyclone grew tighter in an invisible knot around the shredded shadow, trapping it and carrying it up toward the rooftop and out, flinging it into the vast emptiness.

Exar Kun vanished with only a brief, curtailed scream.

The Jedi Knights stood joined together for a final moment, relishing the shared Force. Then, in exhaustion and relief and triumph, they separated from each other. The unearthly glow dissipated around them.

Kyle Katarn was one of these students:

New Essential Chronology wrote:He located other candidates, including the clone Dorsk 81, the warrior woman Kirana Ti from Dathomir, and Corran Horn from Rogue Squadron. New Republic Commander Kyle Katarn also joined the first batch of students...

Dark Forces Saga Part 1, wizards.com wrote:Kyle realized he still carried the taint of the dark side from his conflict with Jerec. When Master Skywalker made a second offer to train him, Kyle immediately took him up on it, believing it would help him tame his dark feelings. Kyle developed a friendship with fellow Jedi trainee Corran Horn, but when two of Luke's students fell to the dark side, the anxiety Kyle felt about his earlier brush with darkness multiplied.

Abel G. Peña, theforce.net wrote:"I don't think Kyle was tied up doing something else during that series, he just wasn't mentioned by the writers of most of those books, same way Streen, Kirana Ti, and a bunch of others weren't. Even KJA didn't put the spotlight on all of his original Jedi-dozen in the Jedi Academy trilogy. Kyle's just in the background of the NJO like he was in the JA3."

Up until this point, Exar Kun's spirit is stated to have 'toyed' with them:

Exar Kun Supreme Respect Thread (NEW UPDATE 5/27/2022) Screenshot_20201202-081820_Discord

Exar Kun lost in this fight due to him not yet being ready to fight again:

I, Jedi wrote:Gantoris was on Yavin just over two weeks before his death, which could be seen as a cap to one cycle. Kyp arrived a week or so later and was here just over a week before he stole the Headhunter. Inside a week he came back and dropped Luke like a hot rock. By rights the dark man should have been back preying on us within days after Luke's defeat, but he wasn't, and this frightened me.
*
The only vaguely positive explanation for Exar Kun's dormancy that I could come up with was that his effort to draw the Sun Crusher from Yavin and to down Luke had tired him out. I had no way to determine how powerful Exar Kun could be, but it struck me as possible that he'd expended a lot of energy to defeat a Jedi Master. There was no telling how long it would take for him to recover.
*
"I know I can buy us time, but not much. At the rate he recovers, Kun should be ready for something tomorrow, maybe tonight."
*
My thinking was that Kun, still taxed from his having funneled enough power through Streen to create that cyclone, would take the chance at having Streen use the Headhunter to kill Luke.
*
"Council of war, good. Right now, not good." I sighed. "Kun has been defeated tonight. He's not going to be coming back right away."
*
"Right. It will have to shine so brightly no shadow can withstand it." I looked around at all of them. "That's your job. When he comes for Luke again, you give him more light than he can ever handle."
*
"Not going to happen." I leaned forward, holding myself up by posting my arms on the table. "Up to this point, Exar Kun has acted on his own schedule. He's moved when he wants to move, done what he's wanted to do. Not anymore. Tomorrow evening, as night is coming on, we'll force him to act. He won't be ready, but he'll think he can still beat us. He'll be wrong."
*
I managed a weak smile. "Bait. Kun's heading into a trap. A big trap."
*
She weighed my words. "Any chance he can get out of it?"
*
"Shouldn't be able to. It really is over for him."

Indeed, Corran Horn surmises that Exar Kun had actually been losing power:

I, Jedi wrote:"When Kyp destroyed Carida, he diminished your power. When you destroyed Gantoris, you diminished your power. You're a predator over-grazing your prey, but you can't stop because the dark side fills you with this aching hunger that will never be satisfied."

Indeed, Kyle Katarn, Streen, Dorsk 81, Kirana Ti, Kam Solusar, Tionne Solusar, Cilghal and the spirits of Masters Luke Skywalker and Vodo-Siosk Baas combined their power to defeat Kun's spirit:


Massassi Temples, Databank wrote:Drawn to the Jedi was the ancient spirit of Exar Kun, who possessed several of Luke's students. Nearly killing Skywalker, the spirit of Kun challenged all the Jedi, who combined their Force abilities to banish Kun's presence.
Galaxy Magazine 8: The Deadly Dozen wrote:Millennia later, Kun’s spirit was freed by Kyp Durron, a Jedi student of Luke Skywalker. It would take the power of a group of Jedi students and Skywalker himself to defeat Kun and banish his spirit.
Exar Kun Supreme Respect Thread (NEW UPDATE 5/27/2022) 20201010
Exar Kun Supreme Respect Thread (NEW UPDATE 5/27/2022) 2017-10-29

Luke Skywalker remembers their union as among his most memorable moments of power:

Children of the Jedi wrote:"Yes,” said Luke, remembering the power of the Force flowing into him as he’d battled Exar Kun for the final time.

Being host to Exar Kun's spirit took a massive toll on Kyp Durron's body:

Jedi Academy Vol.3: Champions of the Force wrote:Kyp moved slowly, as if walking barefoot across shattered glass. His eyes were dull. His face was seamed with new lines, as if the dark spirit of Exar Kun had shed his four thousand years of existence onto Kyp's shoulders.

Per Leia, Exar Kun's spirit was the only thing as powerful as Kueller since before Exar Kun's awakening:

New Rebellion wrote:She [Leia] wished she had the same certainty. This Kueller had more Force capability than anyone she had encountered in years. Except Exar Kun, and he had been a spirit. Kueller was alive.

He was using these deaths to replenish his own well of hatred. The dark side ate people from within, but while it did so, it gave them too much power.

He appeared to have more power than she had. More power than Luke.

Per Luke Skywalker, he hadn't felt power like Kueller's in a living being since Emperor Palpatine:

New Rebellion wrote:The presence had neared. It was strong in the dark side. He could feel the ripples, feel a power he hadn't felt in a living being since he encountered the Emperor. Luke had never had a student that powerful, of that he was certain.

Mara Jade further claims she hasn't felt power like a prime Kueller's since Palpatine:

New Rebellion wrote:She raised her head. She was stunning, he had to give her that, with her bright green eyes, and red, almost auburn, hair. A woman to respect. A woman that no one ever should tamper with. "I haven't felt power like this since Palpatine in the early days. If this continues, Han, Kueller will be stronger than the Emperor ever was, and he'll do it quicker."

"So you're not here for Luke after all." She swallowed. "It may be too late for Luke. I'm here for the rest of us."

Kueller was however more powerful than any student Luke has trained which would include Kyp Durron:

New Rebellion wrote:Luke had never had a student that powerful, of that he was certain. Whoever it was became powerful after he had left the academy.

Luke looks back and thinks of slaying Exar Kun and the reborn Emperor as his greatest triumphs:

Children of the Jedi wrote:Ben, he thought, would have had something to say, something healing...Yoda would have known how to deal with the wretched ruin of a friend's heart and life. The mightiest Jedi in the universe, he reflected bitterly--that he knew of, anyway - come the destroyer of the Sun Crusher, the slayer of evil, who'd defeated the recloned Emperor and the Sith Lord Exar Kun. . .

The return of the spirits of Exar Kun and Marka Ragnos seemed to entail a grand sinister plot in the Force:

Evil Never Dies: The Sith Dynasties, starwars.com wrote:Seven years after the Battle of Endor, when Luke Skywalker established an academy with the intention of rebuilding the Jedi Order, the spirit of the ancient Sith Lord Exar Kun returned to prevent the Jedi Brotherhood's resurrection. Three short years later, another Sith daemon, this time the Dark Lord Marka Ragnos, also was called back from the realm of Chaos to terrorize the galaxy. This latter event was not isolated. Some of the disciples of Ragnos had formerly been aligned with the dark sider Hethrir and his Empire Reborn, which had been defeated only a short time prior. Worse, soon after the encounter with Ragnos, the lifeless body of the reformed Sith acolyte Flint was found on Belderone: an ancient Jedi lightsaber in hand, a cauterized hole through his throat.
The Force seethed with the suggestion of a grand, sinister scheme.

The late Tom Veitch confirmed that Exar Kun was more powerful alive than he was as a spirit:

Pretty much everything to do with the original work on Exar Kun was directly approved by George Lucas:

Great thread. I'll read it more thoroughly later, but note the comic doesn't indicate Vodo alone disarmed Droma. It seems to have been a group effort.

Well, the group disarms Ulic and all his men. But Vodo himself takes Ulic's lightsaber. That's besides the fact that several years earlier, Ulic nearly killed all of Vodo's companions. But you are nonetheless correct.

im confused as to when some of the accolades/feats/statements actually refer too in kun's lifetime/timeframe. u think u can explain it a bit better? putting on some years next to the statements perhaps? or maybe making a scaling chain like i did.

Unfortunately, there is no exact time frame of events for the Great Sith War. Only that it was over four years long.

Nice post, got some questions/suggestions:

1. Where do you hold Kun relative to DE Sidious and Valkorion?
2. You should add your case for debunking the Malak > Kun quote as an addendum. It’d be good to see your full case all in one spot.
