- "You're resisting. He can sense it."
"He can sense it? What is he, like a Padawan cat? Oh!"
"You don't seem to be getting this."
"I get that this furball's trying to kill me. Give me your lightsaber and I'll make the connection."
- ―Kanan Jarrus and Ezra Bridger, as Ezra tries to tame a loth-cat
During the Sith Empire's occupation of Serenno, the Sith used the Force to control the Tirra'Taka and use it in combat. Jedi Master Porter Engle used this ability to calm a group of steelees so they could be used as mounts during a Jedi rescue attempt of the Blythe family, who had been kidnapped by the Nihil. During the First Battle of Geonosis, Anakin Skywalker used the Force to tame a ravenous reek in the Petranaki Arena. At one point during the Clone Wars, on the planet of Ryloth, Obi-Wan Kenobi used that ability to tame and control a pack of voracious gutkurrs, luring them into a trap, though it notably required a sustained and strenuous amount of effort for Obi-Wan to influence multiple creatures at once. Many years later, Ezra Bridger also used it with a dangerous fyrnock at Fort Anaxes. Bridger, however, connected with the dark side of the Force in summoning such a powerful creature and the experience left him drained. Taming a creature in such a way required letting go of one's inhibitions and opening oneself to the power of the Force. Later, Bridger mastered the skill, connecting with tibidee and purrgil alike. Bridger however was unable to connect with the krykna of Atollon, due to their sensitivity towards negative emotions.
