Anakin Skywalker used this power to calm a reek in the Petranaki Arena.[10] The Twi'lek Jedi Tott Doneeta also used 'Beast Control' to befriend a vicious Boma in his quest to find Princess Galia on the planet Onderon. He rode the Boma into the Beast Riders' base before he, Ulic Qel-Droma and his brother Cay Qel-Droma learned the truth about Queen Amanoa.[4] Darth Talon may have used a variant to control wild animals on Vendaxa.[11] Kreia taught this power to the Jedi Exile when they were both stranded on Dxun as a means to make their journey through the jungles easier.[1] Valin Draco may have used this power to stop a K'kayeh dragon devouring him, beneath the Almas Academy.[12] Jacen Solo frequently used this power on various animals on Yavin 4. In 43 ABY during a riot at the Coruscant Livestock Exchange and Exhibition Jaina Solo used this power to bend a large number of animals to her will.[9]
