Kylo Ren, originally Ben Solo, was a Human male and the son of Han Solo and Leia Organa. He trained as a Jedi under his uncle Luke Skywalker but turned to the dark side of the force, massacring many of Luke's students as the master of the Knights of Ren and apprentice to Supreme Leader Snoke. He later served the First Order under Snoke and commanded it's armies against the Resistance.

Biography Edit

Ben Solo was born to Han Solo and Leia Organa under the rule of the New Republic. Before he was born, his mother sensed him through the force and concluded that he was a boy. He didn't spend a lot of time with his parents and was whisked off to train with his uncle Luke Skywalker as a Jedi. Ben eventually was turned to the dark side by Snoke and he became the master of the Knights of Ren, destroying Luke's Jedi and forcing him into hiding. Serving the First Order, Ben took on the name Kylo Ren.

Kylo Ren arrived in his Command Shuttle on Jakku many years later and led the First Order in a search for the missing segment of the map to Luke Skywalker. He captured Resistance Pilot Poe Dameron who refused to give away the location of the map.

Kylo took Poe to the Finalizer where he interrogated the pilot into revealing that the information was with BB-8 the droid. Finn escaped with Poe and crash landed on Jakku. When the First Order failed to stop Rey and Finn from escaping with the droid Hux and Kylo met with their master Snoke. Hux told Snoke that the superweapon was ready and was ordered to oversee operations. Snoke told Kylo that BB-8 was in the hands of Han Solo, his father. Kylo told Snoke that this wouldn't stop him even though his master is unsure.

Arriving on Takodana, Kylo landed in his shuttle and watched as his Stormtroopers attacked the castle. Rey and BB-8 watched from afar and Kylo Ren found them. Rey shot the dark warrior but he deflected every bolt, capturing the the scavenger. Discovering that she had seen the map to Luke Skywalker, Kylo told his men that they no longer needed the droid and that he would be able to get the map out of her mind.

Kylo interrogated Rey on Starkiller Base, surprised that she was "just a scavenger". Han, Chewbacca and Finn arrived and Rey escaped. Han and the group set explosives while Kylo searched for them. Kylo met Han at opposite sides of a bridge, telling him he had been looking forward to this day. Han asked him to remove his helmet since he wouldn't be needing it. Han slowly walked closer and attempted to explain to his son that Snoke was using him and that he would kill Kylo once he could no longer be used. Han asked him to come back and Kylo took his lightsaber, handing it to his father. Then, to the shock of Rey, Finn and Chewbacca who were watching from platforms, Kylo activated the saber, stabbing Han. Han touched his sons face before Kylo removed the blade. He watched as his father's body fell and then he failed to stop angry Chewbacca's shots which injured him.

With the group escaping, Kylo made his way outside to the snowy forest. When Finn and Rey arrived, he force-pushed her against a tree. Finn activated Luke Skywalker's lightsaber and ran at Ren. Finn put up a fight and slashed Kylo's shoulder. Kylo sent the saber flying and slashed him from behind. Finn fell to the ground and Kylo attempted to use the force to take Luke's lightsaber. It didn't budge for a while and then finally it came flying directly past him and into Rey's hand. After a moment of staring, the two duelled. At first Kylo was dominating the fight and pushing Rey back. Eventually the ground around them started to fall apart since Poe and the Resistance had successfully destroyed the inner parts of the base. Ren cornered Rey beside a crevice and told her she needed a teacher. She called on the force and avoided Kylo's blade. This time Rey was dominating and slashed Kylo across the face. Another crevice opened between them and Rey ran off to find Finn. Kylo was rescued by Hux before the base was completely destroyed and was taken to Snoke to have his training completed.


Kylo facing of Luke Skywalker's projection on Crait

Kylo Ren used the force to telepathically communicate with Rey and the two teamed up against Supreme Leader Snoke and Ren slaughtered his master, becoming the leader of the First Order. Rey and Ren then fought against the Elite Praetorian Guards but afterwards split paths because Kylo wouldn't return to the light and Rey wouldn't turn to the dark side. Kylo faced a force projection of Luke Skywalker and defeated him. Luke's physical body died on Ahch-To.

Personality and Traits Edit

Kylo appears to be very obsessed with his grandfather Darth Vader and it seems he is unaware that he turned good in the end and killed Emperor Palpatine.

Powers and Abilities Edit

Although Kylo was strong with the force and was able to stop a blaster bolt in mid-air, he was still undertrained and most likely confused due to the mix of his training with Supreme Leader Snoke and with Jedi Master Luke Skywalker.

Caedus's hair is slightly similar to that of Kylo Ren

Jacen Solo Edit

In Star Wars Legends, the son of Han Solo and Leia Organa Solo is Jacen Solo. Kylo Ren is very obviously inspired by his character since Jacen, twin brother of Jaina and older brother to Anakin Solo trained as a Jedi and then turned down a dark path, becoming Darth Caedus.

Ben Skywalker Edit

The Son of Luke Skywalker and Mara Jade in Star Wars Legends, Ben Skywalker trained as a Jedi under his father. He was obviously named after Obi-Wan Kenobi, one of Luke's mentors. In a similar way Kylo Ren's real name is Ben and is most likely named after the old man that sacrificed himself on the first Death Star.
