Force power "absorb" is the most powerful force power for a Light Jedi Lord who has not sacrificed all neutral force powers to attain force power "protection". The force power allows you to take no damage from all force powers other then force power "throw". When someone attempts to use a force power on someone using force power "absorb" the mana that is used will be added to the person using force power "absorb"'s mana total. This force power is one of the best counters, second only to force power "protection". With the exception of force power "throw", you are temporarily protected from other force powers. Though force power "grip" will still immobilize you in place.
