Facts about Kylo Ren
Kylo Ren Biography
Kylo Ren is the black-clad Imperial villain who hates the Rebels and adores Darth Vader in the 2015 sci-fi film Star Wars: The Force Awakens and its 2017 successor, Star Wars: The Last Jedi.
As played by actor Adam Driver, Kylo Ren is a hot-tempered supernatural hooligan who torments Finn and Rey, the heroes played by John Boyega and Daisy Ridley. In The Force Awakens, Kylo Ren is revealed to be the son of Princess Leia (Carrie Fisher) and Han Solo (Harrison Ford), who turned to the dark side of The Force after a poor job of Jedi training by Luke Skywalker (Mark Hamill).
Kylo Ren idolizes his grandfather and fellow villain, Darth Vader, and dresses in a similar black cape and scary helmet and mask. He wields a fiery red light saber with added fiery prongs near the handle.
The official Star Wars site describes him this way: “A dark warrior strong with the Force, Kylo Ren commands First Order missions with a temper as fiery as his unconventional lightsaber. As a leader of the First Order and a student of Supreme Leader Snoke, he seeks to destroy the New Republic, the Resistance and the legacy of the Jedi.”
