"So, you have a twin sister? Your feelings have now betrayed her too."
Darth Vader uses telepathy to read Luke Skywalker's thoughts and learn of the existence of his daughter, Leia Organa.[src]

Telepathy was the ability to mentally communicate with other individuals. Some Force-users were able to communicate via telepathy, and the Iktotchi Jedi Master Saesee Tiin was a naturally superior telepath.[1] The Jedi Knight Luke Skywalker was able to call out to his twin sister Leia Organa using telepathy when he needed rescuing on Cloud City, as did Darth Vader to convince Luke to turn to the Dark Side and learn that she was his daughter.[2] Although not true telepaths, the Mahran species were able to faintly sense the emotions of others.[3] The disembodied B'omarr monks, who remained alive as bottled brains mounted on spider-like droid legs, communicated telepathically, with the help of a telepath response unit.[4] Kylo Ren was also an experienced telepath, capable of extracting information from even unwilling targets.[5] Telepathy was amongst the powers of Supreme Leader Snoke, whom had achieved a great mastery of it.[6]

Telepathy could be difficult for a Jedi to use, and on a mission to Mokivj, Anakin Skywalker trapped in a cell, could feel the presence of his wife, Padme Amidala but could not speak to her with his mind, responding it didn't work that way when urged to contact her by Thrawn.[7]
