This was their very first hand-to-hand battle.
And in Rathil's case at the moment it really was a battle of hand. Hand-to-lightsaber - you should call it.
It made the Fallen jedi even more angry it seemed, that she had blocked this stab with her bare hand.
No Cortosis, mandalorian steel, for her. Just the force, used to dissipate the energy of Ray's lightsaber.
