DJ is a fictional male in the Star Wars series. The character was portrayed on screen by Benicio Del Toro. His allegiance is to no one in the series. Finn and Rose Tico come into contact with DJ when they encounter him on the casino planet of Canto Bight. The Resistance members had been sent to the planet by Poe Dameron to find a code breaker who would be able to break into the First Order computers and stop the First Order from tracking the Resistance through light speed.
The real target of the operation was not accessible but DJ offered his expertise and because time was of the essence, Rose and Finn decided to take him up on the offer. DJ was true to his word and got them onto Supreme Leader Snoke's main space ship. When they got to the tracking device, DJ turned sides and handed the Resistance two to the First Order.
DJ had managed to play the Resistance all along, fool them into thinking he was willing to help them. In fact, it was all too easy. DJ knew who Finn and Rose were and turned up at the right moments to offer them a hand. DJ handed them over to General Hux who planned to execute them but failed to do so in the end. DJ won't be back.
