Show me, grandfather, and I will finish what you started.
~ Kylo Ren
Kylo Ren, originally Ben Solo, is the main antagonist of the Star Wars sequel trilogy.
Kylo Ren was born Ben Solo, the son of Han Solo and Leia Organa. Ben showed large amounts of potential with the Force, and was sent to train as a Jedi with Leia's brother Luke Skywalker, to avoid Ben becoming like his idel darth sideous , who'd went to the Dark Side of the Force and became a Sith Lord. However, Snoke, leader of the First Order, convinced Ben to come to the Dark Side and become as powerful as his grandfather. Ben ended up slaughtering the rest of the Jedi trainees and joining the Knights of Ren, Snoke's personal army, renaming himself Kylo Ren. As Kylo Ren, Ben became Snoke's main enforcer of the First Order, and despite his unfinished training, was still an extremely powerful warrior with the Force.
Powers & Abilities
The Force: Being from a family of powerful Force users, Ren is very in-tune with the Force, an energy that spans throughout the galaxy, and is skilled at manipulating it.
Telekinesis: Ren can use the Force to manipulate people and objects with his mind. He's skilled enough with this to manipulate the movements of living beings with his telekinesis.
Force Stasis: The ability to forcefully freeze a person or object in place. Ren's shown enough skill with this technique to stop a blaster bolt in place before it could hit him, leaving it suspended in midair.
Telepathy: The Force allows its users to manipulate the minds of others.
Mind Probe: Ren has enough skill with the Force to sift through the thoughts of others to find information. This process causes the target incredible discomfort, meaning it's useful for torture.
Lightsaber: The preferred weapon of Force users. It is a plasma blade powered by a khyber crystal and emitted from a metal hilt, the laser blade being able to cut through almost anything. Ren's lightsaber was crudely constructed, and very unstable. This is the reason for the blade's crossguards, which are really vents to let out excess energy, though Ren likes to use it to burn enemies when clashing weapons with them.
Slaughtered all of Luke's other trainees by himself.
Leads the Knights of Ren.
Defeated Finn while injured in the waist.
Subject to fits of rage.
Suit doesn't protect against blaster fire.
A Force-sensitive individual can turn his Mind Probe back on him.
His attachment to his loved ones causes his Light and Dark Side powers to conflict.
Ren is the grandson of previous Star Wars antagonist, Darth Vader, and is obsessed with him to the point of wearing pun similar clothes, using similar Force powers, and even talking to Vader's burned helmet.
