Star Wars: Episode VII - The Force Awakens
Poe Dameron is an ace pilot and a leader in the Resistance's fight against the evil First Order. He soars into battle behind the controls of a modern X-wing fighter. His appetite for risk was indulged by even the most serious minded Resistance commanders, as he received spectacular results when pitted against First Order starfighter patrols. Dameron had great respect for the founders of the Resistance, particularly his idol, General Leia Organa. General Leia Organa sent Poe to Jakku, a poorly settled planet in the Western Reaches of the galaxy, where Dameron sought the elder Lor San Tekka. Tekka was an old ally of Leia and her brother, Luke Skywalker, and held information that would help save the Resistance in the coming battle.
