"I don't sense any deception from him, which is surprising."
Bastila Shan, about Canderous Ordo[src]

Force Empathy was a Force power related to Force sense, but involved picking up impressions of an individuals emotional state.


Master Yoda exhibited Force Empathy during the First Battle of Geonosis while sensing the tension between Obi-Wan Kenobi and Anakin Skywalker during their pursuit of Count Dooku. The argument between the two resulted from Padmé Amidala's fall from an LAAT gunship. After experiencing the situation from afar, Master Yoda decided to intervene.

Jedi Knight Etain Tur-Mukan also proved herself a Force empath during the Clone Wars.

Padawan Jaesa Willsaam was renowned throughout the Order at the time for her innate skill in Force Empathy, which could extend into predicting an individual's actions.

Years later, Luke's infant son, Ben Skywalker, was able to use Force Empathy and as a result shied away from the Force.
