While there are plenty of fans who didn't like the Star Wars sequel trilogy released by Disney, there are some aspects of the movies that warranted few complaints. Chief among them is Poe Dameron, the Resistance pilot who became a central figure in the fight against the First Order. Poe's skills in the cockpit and his close relationship with General Leia Organa made him stand out among the plethora of new characters with whom he shared the screen.
The movies touched on Poe's past, but there wasn't a great deal of detail. Fortunately, Star Wars is hardly limited to feature films, and since his introduction, Poe has appeared in episodes of Star Wars: Resistance, numerous comic books, and many other places. These appearances have significantly expanded upon the character, providing information on who trained him, the Black Squadron, lightspeed skipping, and an explanation of exactly why Leia trusted Poe implicitly.
Despite Star Wars being one of the most exciting and impressive franchises of all time, there's still a lot the general fan base doesn't know about Poe Dameron. This list takes a look at the lore from as many sources as possible to uncover the things you didn't know about the Resistance's greatest pilot.
