Poe Dameron is a fictional male character who works for Alliance in the Star Wars franchise. He has been portrayed on screen by Oscar Isaac. Poe Dameron looks like the new principle X-wing pilot, a position that was vacated by Denis Lawson who didn`t want to return as Wedge Antilles. He is the Rebellions best X-Wing pilot who is sent on a mission by General Leia to Jakku to get a clue to where Luke Skywalker is hiding. Poe takes his droid BB8 along with him for the ride. When he arrives on Jakku, a First Order brigade led by Kylo Ren attack the base, killing everyone except Poe Dameron where they take him back to their ship and interogate him. Poe had been on Jakku to find a clue to the location of Luke Skywalker. When the First Order attacks, Poe hides the location in his driod BB8 who manages to get away.
Poe manages to escape captivity with the help of Finn, a stormtrooper who has decided to desert the First Order. Poe and Finn escape using a T.I.E. Fighter but only after making a scene which alerts the First Order to them escaping. The T.I.E. Fighter crash lands and then Poe Dameron disappears until Finn catches up Poe at the new Rebellion base. It is Finn who gives Finn his name, previously Finn had just been given a code as a name, FN and then a series of numbers.
Poe Dameron leads the X-wing squadron attack on the Starkiller Base and suffice to say that given his prominent role in the Force Awakens survives.
