The Force is an energy field that connects all living things in the Star Wars universe. Various lifeforms have greater or lesser abilities to harness this power. Manifestation of this power may include (but is not limited to) telekinesis, telepathy, extrasensory preception, and increased physical traits (such as reflexes, strength, agility, and dexterity). This power is primarily wielded by Jedi and Sith, which are people specially born with an attunement to this power and are trained in its use.
