|FN-2187 (Finn), Stormtrooper Defector - By: KONAMI|
|Position||Freedom Fighter of Resistance Stormtrooper of the First Order|
The First Order Edit
Finn grew up known only as FN-2187, a product of the First Order’s quest to create super-soldiers by training them from birth. He proved a capable soldier in simulations, though he lacked the zeal for combat shown by some of his squadmates. The First Order’s raid on Jakku awakened FN-2187’s conscience, and he decided to desert and make his own way in the galaxy.
Embracing Freedom Edit
FN-2187 lacked pilot training, so he freed the Resistance pilot Poe Dameron from captivity. The two stole a TIE fighter – with Poe giving the stormtrooper the nickname Finn – and crash-landed on Jakku. Thinking Poe had died in the crash, Finn joined forces with the scavenger Rey and the astromech BB-8 in search of a way off the desert world.
Posing as a member of the Resistance, Finn escaped Jakku and made his way to Takodana. There, he faced a choice: leave Rey and seek his fortune in the Outer Rim, or join the Resistance and fight the First Order he had once served.
Expert Marksman: As a former Stormtrooper, Finn is extremely skilled in utilizing blaster rifles.
Weapons Proficiency: As a former Stormtrooper, Finn is extremely skilled in melee combat.
Expert Hand-To-Hand Combatant: As a former Stormtrooper, Finn is extremely skilled in unarmed combat.
Lightsaber Skills: Despite his lack of training and Force-sensitivity, Finn has some skills in lightsaber combat and is a highly gifted duelist. Finn was able to able to hold his own against a stormtrooper with a riot baton, despite being defeated, and was even able to hold his own against the Dark Jedi Kylo Ren, despite the latter being far more skilled and experience in lightsaber combat then he is. He was able to hold his own reasonably well for a relatively short period of time and even managed to lightly wound Kylo's right shoulder. Ultimately, however, Finn was defeated by Kylo, who disarmed him of this lightsaber and dealt him a severe wound to his back.
