Tyler didn't respond, though he allowed her to move him. He was a little surprised to find that this woman was a Cathar, but more surprised when the sand came and somehow didn't bury them. He could almost see her will forcing the sand away from them. He was rather shocked.
Must be the Force. That is amazing..
Tyler didn't have much experience with Force-users, of either side. He didn't generally socialize with many others, unless they were asking for help, or there was a crisis. And the Imperial Force-users, well, he was sneaky enough to avoid most encounters with them.
Tyler kept his gaze on the Cathar's face, watching the expression shift, if only slightly, as she imposed her will on the sand. Something told him not to interrupt her concentration, and he followed that instinct.
