Character Bio (As of The Last Jedi) - ...After the destruction of Starkiller Base, Poe as Black One and the rest of Black Squadron returned to the Resistance base on D'Qar with the Millemium Falcon and the ragtag group that had infiltrated the base and disabled its shields long enough for Poe's squadron to perfom their assault. Poe's friend Finn was severely injured and in a coma, placed in a flexpoly bacta suit to heal and hopefully someday awaken. Poe finally meets Rey, and has little time to get to know her before wishing her fair well as she leaves with Chewbacca on the Millenium Falcon again to find the legendary Luke Skywalker.
Not long afterwards, the First Order arrives in orbit above D'Qar in the middle of the Resistance's evacuation of their base. Commander Dameron, seemingly prepared just in case in his X-Wing in orbit and attempting to buy more time, opens a communication with General Armitage Hux aboard the Finalizer and issues several insults. Poe then activates some kind of flight booster attached to his T-70 X-Wing to greatly increase its speed and close with the Fulminatrix, a Mandator IV-class dreadnought among the First Order fleet, before the much larger ship can raise its shields. Poe then deatcivates the booster, opens his X-Wing's s-foils, and begins his assault on the dreadnought, destroying all of its dorsal turbolaser cannons in order to open the path for Resistance bombers to begin their run on the dreadnught.
What follows is a pyric victory as Poe is ordered by General Leia Organa to call off the run and return to the Raddus and prepare to leave the system. Poe ignores her orders and has Cobalt and Crimson squadrons perform their bombing run on the Fulminatrix. Even though they as escorted by X-Wings and A-Wings, the squadrons are overrun by Forst Order TIE fighters. Though some starfighters survive the engagement, all bombers are lost, but not before the last bomber succeeds on dropping its proton bomb payload on the Fulminatrix's weak point, destroying the dreadnought.
When Poe returns to the Raddus, the flagship and the rest of the navy jump to hyperspace. Poe is demoted from Wing Commander to Captain by General Organa due to ignoring her orders and getting much of their starfighter squadrons killed, though Dameron argues that a dreadnough was too good a target to pass up. When the fleet exits Hyperspace, the First Order quickly catches up to them, revealing their ability to track ships through Hyperspace, and beginning an assault on the Resistance fleet. As General Organa and Admiral Ackbar give the order to turn the fleet away from the First Order and fly away as fast as possible at realspace speeds, the Order's TIE fighetr assault, led by Kylo Ren, destroys the bridge of the Raddus before they are called back to the First Order's capital ships due to distance. The Raddus' leadership members are all sucked into the vacuum of space and die, save for Leia, who instinctively uses the Force to pull herself back to the Raddus, where Poe and other crew members get her back inside. Leia is incapacitated but alive, and taken to the Raddus' med bay, showing that despite her demoting him, Poe still respects Leia a great deal.
Vice Admiral Amilyn Holdo takes command of the Resistance fleet, and immediately brushes Dameron wrong by insulting him due to his previosuly mentioned actions. She refuses to let him in on any plans as to what to do about the First Order fleet bearing down on them and the Resistance's dangerously low fuel supplies. Due to this, and, Poe works with Finn and Rose Tico on a plan to disable the Order's Hyperspace tracking system, and pulls strings with the Raddus' crew to allow Finn and Rose to leave the ship in a Hyperspace capable shuttle to Canto Bight on Cantonica on information gained from Maz Kanata.
Afterwards, Poe discovers that Holdo is fueling up all of the U-55 Loadlifter shuttles in the Raddus in what looks like a selfish self-saving act. Poe grows more disillusioned in Vice Admiral Holdo and her perceived inability to lead the Resistance under the current circumstances. In fear of the Resistance being destroyed, Dameron uses his influence among the crew of the Raddus to begin a revolt and pull a coup against Holdo. This coup succeeds at first, with Holdo held captive while Poe rushes to the bridge to put his plans into motion. Just then, the Raddus is shaken by the ongoing turbolaser fire from the Supremacy and the rest of the First Order fleet, stunning the crew, and allowing Holdo and her personnel to take back control from their captives, and begin taking back the Raddus. Holdo and her people make their way to the Raddus bridge, where Poe has locked the doors and sealed himself in. Shen the doors blow open, Poe is surprised and relieved to see the Leia is standing there, awaken and well. Leia then proceeds to shoot Dameron with a blaster pitol stun bolt.
When Dameron comes to, he is aboard one of the U-55 loadlifter shuttles he saw being fueled up earlier, now flying through space towards a planet that the Resistance fleet was passing by during the First Order chase. He sees Leia, and realises that Holdo is still aboard the Raddus. It slowly sinks into him that Holdo was not the pampered, selfish individual he took her for. The scene becomes more horrific as the First Order stops firing on the Raddus, now the last ship if the Resistance's navy, and begins opening fore on the shuttles making their way to the planet Crait, taking them out one by one. Holdo, witnessing this, takes the controls of the Raddus, now not under fire by the Supremacy and its fleet, aims the ship at the great dreadnought, and activates a jump to lightspeed with the Raddus' hyperdrive. What follows is a brilliant display of light and ruin as the Raddus severs one of the great wings from the Supremacy, effectively ripping the dreadnought in half, and producing shrapnel flying at the speed of light that shreds at least half of the First Order's fleet. Saved for the time being, the Resistance shuttles make their way to the surface of Crait, and an old Rebel Alliance base there that has not been used in decades. Poe looked on sadly as he watched Holdo make her sacrifice, realising he was wrong about her.
On Crait, the Resistance survivors prepare the old Rebel base as best they can for the coming assault. The massive armored door at the front of the base, the only way in or out of the facility, is dropped and locked in place, much the same as the blast doord once used for the Rebel base at Hoth. The First Order's surviving ships regroup and drop what ground forces they have on the surface of Crait, including several AT-ATs, AT-M6s, a massive battering ram cannon based on miniaturized Death Star tech, two walkers to carry (drag?) this weapon across the ground into position, many troops inside these vehicles, and a shuttle for Kylo Ren and Armitage Hux to command the troops from. Poe leads an assault via old Rebel ski speeders on the First Order forces, but yet again and overwhelming number of TIE fighters begins wearing down their numbers. Just then, the Millenium Falcom arrives and draws the TIEs off and away from the ski speeders, who continue their assault. Unfortunately, some TIEs and other blaster fire breaks their assault and Poe goves the order to break off the attack, possibly due to what happened with Cobalt and Crimson squadrons earlier.
Poe is one of the few who made it back to the Rebel base, sans ski speeder as these seemed to be breaking down all over the place, and orders the Resistance troops in the trenches in front of the blast dorr to retreat inside the base. With no where left to go once inside the base, Luke Skywalker appears out of no were, talks briefly to Leia, then walks out the hole blasted through the door by the First Order's battering ram cannon. While Luke tainted the First Order's weapons fire, Finn reappears through the blasted hole in the base's blast door, carrying a litter with Rose Tico on it. Luke buys time as Poe and the Resistance survivors try to find a way out. They figure the native crystalline Vulptices must know a way out, as there were many of them inside when the Resistance first arrived, and now they were all gone since the danger had increased. Poe and crew spotted one and the Resistance began following it through the tunnels in the back of the base, but just as they find the exit they see it is blocked by boulders, and they'll never be able to move the debris in time.
In the last moments, Rey and Chewbacca use the Force and scanners to find the Resistance survivors, land the Falcon, and Rey then uses the Force to remove the many rocks from the tunnel. When the Resistance members exit the tunnel, Finn hugs Rey, whom he hasn't see or met since he was rendered unconcious at Starkiller Base. When Kylo Ren finally comes to the tunne exit with First Order troops, the Falcon blasts away into space, enters Hyperspace, and gets away with what little remains of the Resistance.
Poe is among these survivors, among them Rey, Finn, BB-8, General Leia Organa, an incapacitatde Rose Tico, and several others who number firty at most, and they all wonder how the Resistance could ever come back from such losses. But Rey and Leia look at the others and tell them they have everything they need...

WIKI INFO (AS OF THE LAST JEDI)
Eventually, Dameron's reckless actions landed him in trouble with his allies, and Dameron was demoted from Wing Commander to the rank of Captain by General Organa following the evacuation of D'Qar. However, Organa was heavily injured during the subsequent attack to the Resistance fleet in which many Rebels like Admiral Gial Ackbar were killed, allowing Vice Admiral Amilyn Holdo to take Organa's role as the leader. However, Holdo's plans involved the loss of gas for the Raddus, which would have allowed the First Order to blown up the flagship and kill the remaining Rebels.
Sure that Leia wouldn't have approved Holdo's direction, Poe teamed up with Lieutenant Kaydel Ko Connix, maintenance worker Rose Tico, BB-8 and Finn to organize a plan to save the Rebels. While Finn, Tico and BB-8 went to Canto Bight's casino in a mission to find a codebreaker, Poe and Connix remained aboard the Raddus. After Finn, Rose and BB-8 returned with DJ, the codebreaker they hired to infiltrate aboard the Supremacy, Poe and his allies started the mutiny against Holdo and her allies, with Poe trying to convince C-3PO to join his cause, although 3PO refused to be part of the mutiny for being unethical. However, Organa recovered by the time of the mutiny and after Holdo managed to escape from Poe's mutineers, Organa went to the room where Poe was and fired a stun blast, knocking him unconscious.
Battle of Crait and Escape
Eventually, Organa decided to follow Holdo's plans to Abandon ship. Said and done, every member of the Resistance evacuated, leaving Holdo aboard the Raddus to be blown up due her decision to sacrifice herself in order to give time for the others to escape. However, aboard the Supremacy, Finn and Rose were subdued along BB-8 by the First Order stormtroopers after being betrayed by DJ, allowing General Armitage Hux to order the destruction of the Resistance fleet. However, Holdo activated the Hyperspace mode of the Raddus, crashing it against the Supremacy, sacrificing herself in the process and causing the deaths of multiple First Order stormtroopers and officers, possibly including Captain Phasma. This action allowed Poe and the other Rebels escape to the mineral planet of Crait.
Once at Crait, the Rebels entered in the planet's outpost. During the ensuing battle, Poe commanded the Rebels and ultimately managed to weaken the First Order's army. However, they concluded that they would not be able to escape, but when Poe saw a vulptex running away through an unknown passageway, the Rebels followed him under Leia's orders to escape. However, the passageway ended in a hole too small for the Rebels to pass. Fortunately, while Luke Skywalker was fighting against Kylo Ren, Rey appeared and moved the rocks with the Force, allowing the Rebels to escape to fight another day. Once safe, Poe met Rey, and took the opportunity to introduce himself to the last Jedi.
GAME DESIGN NOTES:
Poe is given the Con skill, as he tells a lie from time to time, even going so far as to flasify information to allow Finn and Rose Tico to leave the Raddus when they were explicity not allowed to do so, and even leading a coup against Vice Admiral Amilyn Holdo when she took command while General Leia Organa was incapacitated. He was also given the Hide and Investigation skill due to his experiences during the beginning of The Force Awakens, as well as his attempted coup during The Last Jedi, though he obviously wasn't the best at investigation and his skill is quite low.
He's given the Astrogation and Communications skills due to the nature of the Resistance and how, while it's great to have an astromech droid to do these things for you in a starfighter, Rebel and Resistance pilots would probably be expected to have these skills themselves in case their astromechs are damaged or destroyed, to better aid them in finding their way home or to somewhere safe to survive in dangerous situations where they may be cut off from the rest of the Resistance. Even more so for Poe, who is a starfighter commander before his demotion.
