The Force is an energy field generated by living things in the Star Wars galaxy. A small minority of living things have the ability to manipulate this energy field for "paranormal" effects. Force-sensitive individuals can be identified by a high concentration of microscopic midichlorians living in their cells.
Force-related phenomena include (but are not necessarily limited to):
- Superhuman feats of strength, speed, and endurance
- Generation and control of electric arcs
