Kylo Ren is a fictional character in the Star Wars franchise. Introduced in the 2015 film Star Wars: The Force Awakens, he is portrayed by Adam Driver.

"Kylo Ren" is the chosen name of Ben Solo. Presumably, but not explicitly stated to be, named after Obi-Wan "Ben" Kenobi}} the son of original Star Wars trilogy characters Han Solo and Leia Organa. Though trained by his uncle Luke Skywalker as a Jedi, he has been seduced to the dark side of the Force by Supreme Leader Snoke and aspires to be as powerful as his grandfather, Darth Vader.

Ren is the master of the Knights of Ren, as well as a commander and later the Supreme Leader of the First Order, an organization spawned from the former Galactic Empire. He appears in The Force Awakens, The Last Jedi (2017) and will appear in the upcoming trilogy-closer The Rise of Skywalker (2019), as well as related media and merchandising.
