This is Poe Dameron

Poe is a Pilot in the democratic government the New Republic, and a freedom fighter in the Resistance.

These are his Parents, Shara Bey and Kes Dameron. They were soldiers in the galactic Civil War and fought along side the original trio and became close friends with them. Shara died after the war, when Poe was still a child. Kes now fears that the suffering they all went through might have been for nothing as the remnants of the Empire return.

Poe went through agonizing torture by Kylo Ren and the First Order after finding the map to Luke Skywalker, yet he still didn’t blame Finn for being apart of their army and trusted him because he was a good man forced into the wrong side.

Even after being tortured relentlessly and almost dying alone in the desert, Poe still pushed forward and fought with his squad and close friends to destroy Starkiller base, the weapon of mass destruction that had killed billions.

Poe and made the decision to disobey orders and destroy the dreadnought, a decision that cost the lives of many good soldiers, but the decision was the right one since the First Order had been tracking the resistance, and if they hadn’t destroyed the dreadnought, the resistance would have been sitting ducks.

Poe was forced to put blind faith in a commanding officer who refused to tell anyone her plan, his mentor was unresponsive in a coma, two of his friends and comrades were on a suicide mission, while his other close friends were scattered around the galaxy, and all Poe could do was sit in a ship and wait to die as the First Order pursued them relentlessly.

Poe had been forced to watch every single fear he had ever felt come true as he witnessed the First Order demolish the new republic, Kill almost all of the resistance, invalidate every single sacrifice he and his family and comrades had made, and just like his mother’s death, he had no control over the situation.

And yet regardless of all the pain he has had to endure in his life, Poe Knows that he can’t stop fighting, he knows that others are still suffering worse than he is, and he knows that regardless of the enemy, he must stay a good man and do the right thing, regardless of orders.

He’s not a hothead fly boy, he’s not some eye candy to fetishized because of his skin color or sexuality, and he’s definitely never going to betray the trust of his friends, comrades or hurt innocents.

Poe Dameron is a damn good man. He’s a hero, just like Finn, just like Rey, and he deserves better than anyone painting him as the real villain.
