Today we’re digging deeper into the background of Poe Dameron, hotshot pilot for the Republic and then for the Resistance in the Star Wars universe. This is part of our continuing series of looks at Before the Awakening, the collection of stories by Greg Rucka.
Considering that we know conclusively that Poe was born two years before the Battle of Endor, that gives us the opportunity to construct some of the timeline of events that occurred between Return of the Jedi and The Force Awakens.
You’re going to learn about:
–How old Poe was during the Battle of Endor
–Where he grew up
–When he lost his mother, and what his father later thought of the Republic
–How the above informs his choices in the story, especially in moving from Republic to Resistance
