So in Episode 1 they reveal that force sensitivity can be measured scientifically by counting midi-chlorian in your cells. Does anyone know the midi-chlorian counts of any of the main characters? The amount of detail in back stories in Star Wars is often so in depth that I wouldn't be surprised if the data were available somewhere.

  • Some people tend to think that questions for which answers are not forthcoming are bad questions. That is of course absurd, but this is the Internet (TM).

No, there is no such list.

If you search this on google or anything, you will probably find this Midichlorian Count List that originated from Supershadow; A Star Wars fan website famous for his false claims.

An informed reader will find many inaccuracies in this list, like the high midi-chlorian count of non force-sensitive characters. For example Grievous is claimed to have a count of 11,900. There are also many entries for non-existent characters, like Aenon Jurtis or Ce Ce Denowai, that also appear on the supposedly leaked scripts that you will find on supershadow, but conveniently nowhere else.

    Way incorrect even at a glance: It references nonexistent material ("Ben Skywalker (Star Wars Episodes 7 8 9)")

  • Hmmm, I'm not sure; Just because there exists a false list doesn't prove that there cannot be a real one. I vaguely remember some weird computer terminal output in front of the young Obi-Wan in Episode 1 where he took the mid-count readings from. But I don't recall if it had any scale whatsoever.

    @bitmask The point is there is not known list, but if you search for one, you will easily find a false one. Apart from Anakin's count, there is almost no official data anywhere. Wookieepedia's Midi-chlorian article got some references values, but nothing more. And Obi-Wan's weird computer terminal output was not really informative.

    @SS-3.1415926535897932384626433 no, Dooku tried to make him force sensitive via blood transfusion, but failed.
