Tough First Order Tank with a powerful Stun


Kylo Ren, real name Ben Solo, was a human male born 5 ABY on Chandrila to Han Solo and Leia Organa. Kylo was one of the Jedi trained by Luke Skywalker after the defeat of the Empire, but was tempted to the dark side by Supreme Leader Snoke of the First Order, and burned down Luke's Jedi temple. Years later, Kylo searches for the map that leads to Luke Skywalker and has to chase BB-8 who possesses the map. After failing this task, he develops a force bond with Rey which is later revealed to have been created by Snoke. Following the capture of Rey, Kylo assassinates Snoke and leads an unsuccessful siege on the Crait Resistance base.

Further Media Appearance

Kylo appears in Episode VII, VIII, IX and multiple comics, books and video games.


KRU works best as leader to a First Order squad in Territory Wars, Grand Arena, Territory Battles, and possibly Arena. They can be used against Sith defense if Phasma is on the team, and soft counter teams such as Rex lead and Vader lead. They also put a stop to any weaker non-meta teams trying to touch them on defense.

The First Order teams that KRU leads generally fail to beat Resistance teams when on defense, whether it be zFinn lead or JTR lead. CLS also has no trouble beating them, and neither do Traya leads

KRU is generally leading recovery-based First Order teams that generate Turn Meter quickly.
