Powers and abilitiesEdit
Taral spent many years studying the different forms of lightsaber combat and eventually became a consummate Master of Niman allowing him to draw upon the many different disciplines of all known forms of lgihtsaber combat including Juyo. Teral became so proficient in the form because it allowed him to focus upon other areas; in particular it allowed him to focus upon the force. Using Niman allowed the Sith to draw freely upon the force and use his prowess and knowledge in it to ultimately win a battle, rather than relying upon his skill with a lightsaber. However Taral was still considered an artful swordsman, known for his cunning, flexibility and sheer inventiveness in battle.
One of the secrets of Taral’s prowess with a lightsaber was that he employed the art of deception masterfully, deliberately leaving openings in his defence, thus ensuring that his opponent would strike for the exposed area. Knowing the area his opponent would attack, the Sith Lord could lure them into performing a move that he had already anticipated and thus could seemingly and effortlessly counter with powerful, fast masterful strokes. It seems apparent that Taral utilized speed over power, implementing the use of quick slices and thrusts with the edge or tip of his blade. He would make precise cuts which would over time disable his opponent, whilst not expending a large amount of energy. He also employed a good freedom of movement, whilst not relying heavily upon the ability to manoeuvre; he did employ leaps, cartwheels and spins as well as force assisted acrobatics and movements. His balance in combat allowed him to frequently draw upon and use the force to augment his prowess or to use as a tool against his opponent.
