Davith needs to exit the space that contains the hostile figure. To do that he first needs to enter that space.
Note that he does not need to pay extra movement cost for entering the space with the hostile figure if he uses Force Speed, which uses "move X spaces" instead of movement points.
(Compare this to Boba Fett's Battle Presence, which does trigger when you exit adjacent spaces. They are deliberately different abilities.)
Thanks for the answer guys. And thanks for the heads up about his force speed ability. The player who is controlling him probably is only using it to get two movement points
