General Hux


Obliterate the New Republic and to assert the First Order's power over the galaxy


Retreats from his base with Kylo Ren before the explosion

General Hux is one of the main antagonists of the Star Wars sequel trilogy and the tertiary antagonist in Star Wars: The Force Awakens. He is the First Order commander. Among Kylo Ren and Phasma, Hux leads the First Order against the Resistance on behalf of Supreme Leader Snoke, and he is shown to be more loyal to Snoke than Ren, as he shows more rivalry with the latter.


Armitage Hux is the son of Brendol Hux, a commandment in the Imperial Academy on Arkanis. Born during the last days of the Galactic Empire, Hux grew up learning stories of the Empire and how it saved the galaxy from the Clone Wars, and came to believe it was his destiny to rule the galaxy. When the Empire signed the Galactic Concordance and surrendered to the New Republic, Hux, his father, and other Imperial officers, believed that the New Republic was weak and would never live up to the supreme power of the old Empire. So Hux and other Imperial Officers fled to the Unknown Regions first explored by the Empire, where they would create the First Order, a military and political cabal following the Empire's ideology. Hux achieved military superiority throughout the Order, eventually gaining the rank of General.

Star Wars: The Force Awakens

Hux commanded the Starkiller Base during the time of the film. With the superweapon prepared, Hux informs Snoke of the current success at the base with Kylo Ren, the latter having spent the time trying to search for the rogue BB-unit BB-8 containing information on the lost Jedi Luke Skywalker. Snoke commends Hux and chides Ren for his lack of progress. In the dawn of the Resistance attack, Hux speaks to the assembled troops and demonstrates the weapon's power by destroying several planets at once. When the Resistance later destroys Starkiller base, Hux is ordered by Snoke to retrieve Ren before evacuating and return Ren to Snoke so the latter could finish his training.


General Hux is a high-ranking yet ruthless fascistic commander who rules with an iron fist and does not hesitate in eliminating anyone in order to proceed with his agenda along with Snoke's orchestration.
