Details about the main characters of Star Wars: Episode VII The Force Awakens are sparse, with little outside of what we learned at Celebration back in April being known. With the film now less than 50 days away, it only makes sense we begin to learn a little more about them. The Spanish synopsis for the upcoming anthology of short stories titled Star Wars: Before the Awakening by Greg Rucka offers some new, minor, details about Poe Dameron and Finn. This stuff isn't really a spoiler, it's strictly backstory stuff and vague at that. That being said, it does offer a little more insight into these characters.
The Synopsis reads,
“Before they united in the fight against evil, Rey, Poe and Finn led very different lives. Rey was a lone scavenger on the desert planet of Jakku. Poe was a pilot for the Republic. And Finn was only FN-2187, a promising but reluctant stormtrooper. These are their stories. This is what happened before the Awakening.”
The Finn stuff does line up with some previous spoiler reports. It's also interesting that it states Poe was a pilot for the Republic, not the Resistance...
Star Wars: Before the Awakening hits shelves on December 18th, the same day The Force Awakens hits theatres.
