Poe was born towards the end of the wars between the Alliance to Restore the Republic and the Galactic Empire. Poe was raised on the planet of Yavin IV with his parents. He joined the New Republic Defence Fleet but was frustrated with their downgrade of the First Order and it's ability. Leia recruited him to the Resistance where he rose quickly through the ranks, earning the rank and title of Commander.
30 years following the Battle of Endor, Poe was sent by General Organa to receive a very important piece of information, the map with the location of her lost brother, Luke Skywalker. Poe went to Jakku in his X-wing and Lor San Tekka gave him the chip containing the map. Poe's droid - BB-8, saw the First Order approaching and warned the two of the upcoming danger. Tekka told Poe to leave so he attempted to take off in his X-wing but Stormtroopers saw the ship and shot it down. He gave the map to BB-8 and told him to get as far away as he could possibly go. He started shooting some Stormtroopers from his hiding spot. Poe watched as Kylo Ren arrived and as he killed Lor San Tekka. Poe, enraged, shot the dark warrior but the bolt stopped in mid air. Poe felt himself freeze with an invisible field stopping him from moving. The bolt continued to stay put in the air. Two Stormtrooper ran up and dragged Dameron over to Ren. They stared at each other for a long awkward moment before Poe asked who was supposed to talk first.
Poe was taken aboard the Finalizer where Ren interrogated him about the location of the map. Poe eventually gave in - telling him that it was with his droid and Ren ordered a search on Jakku.
Soon afterwards, a stormtrooper walked up to Poe and his guard and declared that Ren wanted the prisoner. He took Poe through some hallways before pulling him aside and removing his helmet. The dark-skinned trooper told Poe that he was busting him out and that he was in charge. Poe realised that the stormtrooper needed a pilot and they agreed on escaping. Poe asked the Stormtrooper why he was helping and he answered that it was "The right thing to do". They reached a Special Forces TIE Fighter and entered it. At first the TIE Fighter was locked down by a cable but eventually they managed to break free. As they escaped, the Stormtrooper identified himself as FN-2187 and Poe named him Finn.
When Poe told Finn he wanted to go back to Jakku to get his droid, Finn objected and a torpedo hit the starfighter, crippling it. It crash-landed on Jakku and when Poe awoke, he had obviously been ejected. There was no sign of Finn or the TIE. He escaped the planet and regrouped with the Resistance. When General Organa was alerted that BB-8 was on Takodana, she sent Poe with X-wing support to get the droid clear. Poe arrived in his new black X-wing just as the First Order had taken Han Solo, Chewbacca and Finn prisoner. The Stormtroopers were all blasted by the X-wing fighters and likewise the TIE Fighters.
Back on the Resistance Base, Finn walked up to Poe's X-wing and discovered that Poe was the pilot. They greeted each other with a manly hug and Poe told a brief summary of how he had survived. Finn told the pilot that he needed his help. Poe introduced the former Stormtrooper to Leia and told her that he knew about Starkiller Base. With Finn's help, the Resistance leaders and Poe located the thermal Oscillator and came up with a plan to destroy the station.
While Finn, Han and Chewbacca infiltrated the base and lowered the shields, Poe led both Red and Blue squadrons and successfully personally destroyed the base from the inside, escaping as it exploded.
After the battle, Poe met Rey. He celebrated with the other Resistance Members and later when R2-D2 awakened, he gave BB-8 the chip. The two droids put together their maps and revealed the location of Luke Skywalker. Poe watched as Rey, R2-D2 and Chewbacca departed to find the old Jedi Master.
