About Kylo Ren

Sometimes being around good people can change others into that kind of person. Unfortunately, that’s not true for Kylo Ren. He is the son of Princess Leia Organa and Han Solo. Organa had hopes that if her son Kylo Ren (who they named Ben but he later changed it himself to Kylo Ren) trained with Luke Skywalker, then he would change from the dark side over into the light side, but her hopes were crushed when Kylo made his choice with the dark side.

Kylo Ren learned of his grandfather Darth Vader and decided that he wanted to take over his plans and follow in his corrupt footsteps. Kylo attempted to use Rey’s brain to search for a map, but she refused to be probed for information. Kylo even came face to face with his father in a battle and he spared no sympathy for his own family who loved him.
