Finn, formerly known as FN-2187, is a former First Order Stormtrooper. He later became a Resistance fighter. He is the deuteragonist of the Star Wars sequel trilogy, appearing as the deuteragonist of The Force Awakens, and as the tritagonist of both The Last Jedi and The Rise of Skywalker. He is portrayed by John Boyega.


Serving as a Stormtrooper in The First Order, he had to fight against the Resistance. However, feeling it was not right to burn down the village, he refused to do it, inspite of Kylo Ren looking at him suspiciously from a far.

Inside The Finalizer, he took off his helmet to breathe, but Phasma told him to put the helmet back and report to her division. He then helped Poe escape, as he was fed up with how evil the Fist Order was. However, Hux tried to shoot his TIE fighter with his ventral canons. Just after his ship crash landed on Jakku, Hux sent a squad of troopers to find him and Poe. He then met Rey and BB-8, who thought he was a thief because he was using Poe's jacket. In order to calm them down, he claimed himself to be a Resistance agent, as Rey then started trusting him. Rey and Finn then used The Millennium Falcon to escape from a squad of TIE Pilots.

After escaping as the TIE fighters had crashed their ships, Han Solo had come into the ship. Right after them meeting Han and Chewbacca two criminal gangs came after Han. After a brief fight with the gangs as well as Rathtars, Finn and Rey were taken in The Millennium Falcon, by Han Solo as their pilot, towards Maz Kanata's castle, located in Takodana.

He then met Maz Kanata, who told him that she noticed his fear looking through his eyes. Maz stated that they had to fight the First Order. However, Finn stated that The First Order is too powerful, and refused to fight them. Rey then suspected something was wrong with him, and he had to confess to Rey his truth: that he came from The First Order, but he didn't want to be related to them anymore as he just wanted to escape from them. However, later when the Stormtroopers came to fight him and The Resistance, Kylo Ren took Rey to The Starkiller Base, and he got desperate as he ran towards the ship. By the time he started running, the ship had already took off and it was too late.

Later, uniting with Han Solo, and eventually coming into D'Qar with the Resistance, he decided to rescue Rey from The Starkiller Base although he knew that it would be hard. While he was doing so, he also gave The Resistance information and he planned to bomb the fuel cells of The Starkiller Base. After reuniting with Rey, he watched Han Solo trying to convince Kylo Ren to escape with them. Kylo Ren was almost convinced by Han, however, he was overtook by the dark side, stabbing ang killing Han Solo with his lightsaber.

Finn and Rey then tried to escape through the woods, as Han and Chewbecca destroyed the fuel cells. Meanwhile, The Resistance pilots had bombed the thermal oscillator. Finn however encountered Kylo Ren, who called him a traitor and defeated him in battle, knocking him unconscious.


He is loving, caring and good-hearted. Although he was kidnapped as a baby, and was forced to work as a soldier for the First Order, he never gave up on the one thing he had desired: his destiny to fight for what is right.
