Charcter Bio (As of The Last Jedi) - ...Finn awoke in a flexpoly bacta suit on the Raddus after the Resistance fled D'Qar. Greeted by Poe, he asked where Rey was, and learned that she had gone to Ahch-To to retrieve Master Skywalker. The First Order intercepted the Resistance fleet when it emerged from hyperspace in the Crait system, attacking and destroying the bridge. General Organa survived, but was gravely injured and taken to medbay. Finn picked up the transponder beacon that Organa was using to let Rey know their location, and decided he was going to flee so she would not get caught up in the First Order's attack.
While attempting to flee the Raddus, the Resistance's flagship, in an escape pod with some "acquired" supplies, Finn met Rose Tico crying nearby. She had recently lost her sister in the assault on D'Qar base during the Resistance's ill-fated bombing run on the Fulminatrix, a First Order Mandator IV-class dreadnought. At first Rose was happy and excited to meet Finn, as she saw him as a Resistance hero and legend for what he had accomplished or been a part of in such a short time. Rose mentions she was stationed by the escape pods to capture and detain deserters with a stun device at her belt. She then realizes Finn is attempting to desert, and she stuns him unconcious before Finn can explain.
Later, Finn awakens while on a repulsor sled, being moved by Rose to the detention cells. He tries to explain why he was leaving, but Rose does not listen at first, until Finn mentions something technical, about how the First Order must be tracking the Resistance through Hyperspace. Finn and Rose figure out how the First Order must be doing this, and begin coming up with a plan to counter it as Rose unties Flinn and they seek out Poe Dameron to tell him their plan.
Without the approval of Vice Admiral Amilyn Holdo, who took command after General Lei Organa was injured and rendered unconcious, Poe, Finn and Rose begin an unsanctioned mission to savee the Resistance fleet. After communicating with Maz Kanata for help and advice, their plan involves Finn and Rose with BB-8 to leave the Raddus in a hyperdrive equipped shuttle to find and retrieve someone called "the Master Codebreaker", while Poe covers for them during their absence.
The trio land the shuttle on the beach of an artificial ocean by the casino city of Canto Bight, on the world of Cantonica, making a local non-human resident (played by Joseph Gordon-Levitt) angry at their lack of parking etiquette, Finn, Rose, and BB-8 begin their search. They come to a large casino filled with many exotic patrons and begin looking around. During this search an alien (supposedly played by Mark Hamill) corners BB-8 and begins putting coins in him like a lot machine. Just as the trio find the Master Codebreaker, the previous resident they argued with arrives with the local security forces, who proceed to arrest Finn and Rose, throw BB-8 out of the casino, and place the duo in a detention cell for the time being.
While in the cell, Finn and Rose meet what seems to be a down-and-out dirty drifter with a stuttering problem, who names himself as DJ (also claiming his name means "don't join", as in don't join any side in a conflict). DJ claims he can get them into the Supremacy and through Snoke's and the First Order's security, but for a price. When Finn and Rose refuse his offer, he then stands up, walks to the cell door, and uses a piece of wrapper to unlock the cell, walking out and away from the Resistance members.
Finn and Rose decide to run the opposite direction of DJ. As they are almost cornered by Canto Bight security forces, they escape by a hatch in the floor. Meanwhile, DJ comes across a guard station where the guards have already been knocked unconscious and tied up by BB-8, leaving the audience to wonder how the heck the little droid pulled off such a feat, which gets funnier as BB-8 proceeds to use the many coins placed in him earlier as a slot machine, and fires them as bullets at more guards approaching it and DJ, then leaving the area together as DJ tells the droid he's too late to rescue Finn and Rose.
Finn and Rose wind up in a stables area containing fathiers, or "space horses", for the Canto Bight racetracks, and several children who tend to the horses. There are signs that both the fathiers and children are abused by the Canto Bight ownership and upper class, but despite this one of the children almost betrays the Resistance members and hits an alert button. Rose quickly offers the child her ring, which reveals a hidden Resistance symbol in it when turned the right way. The boy keeps their secret and takes the ring. When the Canto Bight Police catch up and enter the stables, what ensues is a chase with Rose and Finn rising a fathier, one of many that are released, which then run rampant throughout the city, the to the beach where Rose and Finn watch the Canto Bight police destroy their shuttle, the up a sheer cliff, through some dense foiliage, and almost falling off another cliff before letting their fathier go to join the others.
Another group of Canto Bight Policemen on armed speeders then arrives and corners Finn and Rose, however, they leave when DJ and BB-8 show up in a larger ship, the Libertine, also armed. Finn and Rose then accept DJ's offer, board the ship, and leave Cantonica. As they head back to the Resistance fleet, which is at this point dangerously low on fuel, Finn realizes DJ does not own the Libertine, but stole it with help from BB-8. While trying to convince him to care for the cause, DJ makes valid arguments that counter Finns, only strengthened by the revelation that the owner of the very ship they are traveling in was owned by an arms dealer who sold weapons, ships, and other military materiel to both the First Order and the Resistance.
After arriving in the area of the First Order's chase of the Resistance fleet, DJ then uses some previously unseen computer program components to place their ship in a stealth status, as well as disrupting the Supremacy's shield generator along once section of its hull, allowing the Libertine to slip through and land inside the Supremacy. The group then proceeds to infiltrate the Supremacy, knocking out crew members and taking their uniforms, attempting to disguise BB-8 with a trash can, and make their way to the hyperspace tracker. Along the way, another BB type droid notices BB-8. As the group gets to the final door and use DJ's skills to gain entrance, they are cornered and captured by First Order forces, including Armitage Hux, Phasma, and the same BB droid that noticed them earlier.
They are taken to a massive hangar, minus DJ, and brought before a large formation of stormtroopers and other crew and officers of the Supremacy, with Hux declaring judgement upon them for their "crimes", and leaving their execution to Phasma. Phasma declares this should be painful, with stormtroopers ordered to take an executioner's position while holding what looks like some kind of laser axes.
Just as all seemed lost, the Supremacy is rocked by a massive impact. Amilyn Holdo, trying to save what's left of the Resistance in their small U-55 Loadlifter escape craft, pilots the Raddus and makes the jump to lightspeed, ramming into the Supremacy at the speed of light. The resukting destruction severs a "wing" off the supremacy, scatters lightspeed shrapnel that takes out about half the First order fleet, causes much destruction and havoc among the First Order forces, but more importantly, saved the lives of Finn and Rose and giving them a chance to escape.
As Rose and Finn make their way through the chaos, Phasma reappears and taunts Finn. Finn takes the taunt and fights her to the death in the middle of the flaming destruction in the Supremacy;s hangar bays. While Phasma gets the upper hand, Finn surprises her with a loading bay door and a powerful blow to the face of her helmet, knocking her out of the fight. The floor Phasma lays on falls out from under her, leading her to possibly fall to her death (see next episode for details). Almost cornered by stormtroopers, BB-8 hijacks am AT-ST, blows through the troops to save Finn and Rose, and they make their way across the bay and various wreckage to board a Xi-class shuttle, leave the Supremacy while being chased by TIE fighters, making their way to the surface of Crait while under fire, and crashing through the heavy armored door to the old Rebel base the last of the Resistance has found shelter in.
With little to work with, Finn then joins other Resistance members in piloting a batch of old ski speeders in an attempt to take out the First Order's battering ram cannon. If they succeed, the Resistance may be able to keep the First Order from gaining access to the base. If they fail, the Resistance will most likely be wiped out. Even with Rey arriving in the Millenium Falcon and drawing away the Order's TIE fighters, the Resistance ski speeders are still cut down in short order. Poe Dameron orders a retreat, but Finn charges ahead, hoping his sacrifice will destroy the battering ram cannon. At the last moment, Rose rams his speeder with her own to save his life, injuring hers in the process. As Rose tells Finn she loves him before losing consciousness, the cannon fires and blows a hole through the base's armored door.
Finn returns to the door and enters through the blasted hole to rejoin the remaining Resistance members, carrying Rose on an improvised litter made from ski speeder parts. The only reason he was able to make it back from the battlefield outside was due to the sudden arrival of Luke Skywalker who caught the First Order's attention and drew their fire as Finn slipped around with Rose. While inside the base and losing time, Finn and the others try to find a way out. They notice that the Vulptices (sing: Vulptex), creatures native to Crait that look like foxes with crystalline fur, which entered the base with the Resistance, have suddenly disappeared. Realizing these creatures may known a way out, they find one and everyone follows it through the tunnels in the back of the base. When they reach the end of the tunnel, it's blocked by ricks and boulders, revealing they have no way out.
As Luke's ruse plays itself out and Kyo realizes the truth, Rey and Chewy land the Falcon, with Rey using the Force to move the boulders blocking the tunnel. Seeing each other for the first time since Finn was left in a coma after fighting Kylo Ren, they hug and laugh. The Resistance survivors then boards the Millenium Falcon and they leave Crait, with Kylo Ren watching on, too late to finish eradicating Finn and the rest of the Resistance.
Finn is among the remains of the Resistance as Rey reveals she has the Ancient Jedi Texts aboard the Falcon, and General Leia and the rest of them try to figure out what to next...
...To Be Continued in Star Wars Episode IX.
GAME DESIGN NOTES:
Even though little time passed between The Force Awakens and The Last Jedi, a week at the most, Finn still learned many valuable lessons since his leaving the First Order, meeting Poe Dameron and Rey, and joining the Resistance and their fight against the First Order.
Some of his general combat skills were improved +1 pip, as he did seem to be improving his abilities beyond those of the standard Stormtrooper.
He also gained the Lightsaber skill after using it briefly against Kylo Ren. While he lost this duel and was gravely injured, he still did admirably well for his first fight ever with a lightsaber, and the fact that he survived this fight at all should be a testament to his ability (and probably the use of a Force Point in the process, and gaining a couple along his adventure during the Force Awakens).
Hide, Search, and Sneak were improved +1 pip, and he was given the Con and Persuasion skills as he constantly attempted to persuade and lie to various people in both The Force Awakens and The Last Jedi. These skills are still relatively low, which explains why it doesn't always work out for him, and why Rose Tico zapped him with her stun device.
Fin has also been given Scholar (First Order) and Maintenance and Cleaning (First Order Facilities) to represent his knowledge of the First Order that keeps coming up in the films to give him and his allies access and advantage against First Order facilities and ships. Maintenance and Cleaning represents Finn's mentions of performing janitorial duties. However, if GMs/players wish to forgo these skills, they can remove them and instead give Finn major redictions in Difficulty Levels (-2 Difficulty Levels/-10) when making Knowldege-based rolls to know something useful about the First Order.
