Vrook was not the only one saying that in the game, and the only time he ever appears in the KotOR comic book is in issue 9 when Draay and his cronies are called before the council, at which point Vrook surprisingly enough avoids speaking for or against Zayne in any way.

Yes, but that does not invalidate how they sense the same thing from the exile that they do from Nihilus. Indeed, that they did still begs an answer.

If one survived by creating a wound in the Force, isn't it possible someone else did as well.
The most obvious problem with that is that it contradicts the very point you quote Kreia for - that only the exile chose a different path.

Add to that the only time - to my knowledge - that Nihilus is actually named in the game, which is the description of his mask, and it becomes even more contradictory:

"You have taken this trophy from the remains of Darth Nihilus - it is the last surviving piece of the beast who died and was reborn in the shattered world of Malachor V. By taking it from him, you have gained a stronger tie to the Force."

This is not spoken by Kreia, but stated factually in the game, which means that Nihilus did die on Malachor V. Thus he chose one of the two options Revan forced upon the jedi there - turn to the dark side or die. Nihilus died. Then he was reborn and turned to the dark side. Since rejecting either choice is the basis for the exile's ability to wound the force, that certainly seems to contradict with the idea that Nihilus might have made the same choice. Indeed, he "made" all the other choices available. So I don't think that can be used to explain his similar abilities.

Then why do they have so identical powers that the masters think the exile is responsible the destruction Nihilus has wrought?
