Extremely Force-sensitive. Was able to go through Jedi training as an adult—probably at an even older age than Luke. He was particularly gifted in the use of the telekenetic Force, as evidenced by his ability to deflect energy weaons fire by sheer will.
Jedi, Rogue, Rebel, police officer, husband, father—few characters in the Star Wars expanded universe have worn quite so many hats as Corran Horn. His influence on so many different aspects of Republican life make him one of the most influential members of the post-Return of the Jedi Expanded Universe "cast". Indeed, he was probably second only to Luke in terms of raw Force-sensitivity. His different approach to the Force often made for dramatic conflict between he and Skywalker.
There were two chief philosophical differences between Skywalker and Horn. One came during Horn's days at the new Jedi Academy. Kyp Durron fell to the Dark Side, and Horn was convinced his fall had everything to do with Luke's training methods. In protest, he resigned the Academy, in search of himself, and his wife.
The second, and perhaps more serious, was over the issue of the relationship between Jedi and the government. By middle age, Luke had become convinced that Jedi should be true only to the Force. Horn saw a Jedi Order more like the one of the Old Republic, in which the Jedi were effectively a part of the Executive Branch.
This debate between the two Jedi Masters is one of the central issues of the 2006 series, Star Wars: Legacy. Though set a good century after Horn's prime, the degree to which Jedi associate with the government is still a topic of hot debate.
It was also central to defining his character. Unlike Skywalker, Horn had been a member of a police unit, CorSec, prior to becoming a Jedi. Working for governments was therefore something towards which he was already predisposed.
His closest analogue in the prequel-era cast is probably Quinlan Vos.
He was married Mirrax Terrik and had two Force-sensitive children by her.
