I guess you're referring to one of my posts/ sig? I never said you did that either. What I wrote was just a general comment.

Nihilus would be able to detect Revan if he/she got ‘within range’.
That'd be so. But I think this VS thread is about each other knowing they're about to fight, face to face, and that's the assumption based on which we're all discussing.

Now tell me why this wouldn’t work on Revan?
Of course this works on Revan, if like you said Nihilus is undetected by Revan and strikes from a distance. This paragraph was lifted out just to question Emerpor Devon's "proof" of Nihilus being able to drain life even when he's under major attack. That in turn was being discussed because we had the assumption that Revan and Nih were having a one on one, face to face fight as if in an arena.

What Kreia implied was true. I believe Nihilus do have this ability given how he destroyed an entire planet. But again, the matter comes down to whether he can exert this ability in close, immediate combat, in this one on one thread.

Now of course you'd say "one on one" could still mean they're fighting each other from a great distance. In that way, I'd concur that with absolutely no doubt Nihilus pawns.

Agreed. The previous discussion was way too off topic.

That's true. Or else he wouldn't have only started to appear in a video game anyway. Just kidding. But like we said, in terms of a force wielder he is definitely not among the most powerful, but a person is not only accounted on his amount of midichlorians. One strong in the force but with no brain can't flourish without the force. And Revan seems to me to be brainy enough, and with his wield of the force fairly strong, to rise over some jedi that you mentioned.

The list goes on.
All of these claims are pretty stupid, but one thing: I know Anakin is the Sith'ari, but is Revan? It seems to me he fits in with the definition quite well. But of course, if there could only be one sithari ever, it'd be Anakin, all because he's in the original movies.
