Description: Armitage Hux was a human male who served as a general in the military forces of the First Order during the New Republic Era. With the support of Supreme Leader Snoke, Hux took command of Starkiller Base and promoted the development of new technology that allowed the First Order fleet to track targets through hyperspace. However, Snoke's death ruined the young general's career trajectory, as did the years that Hux spent jockeying for power against his rival Kylo Ren, who seized control of the First Order as the new Supreme Leader.
Born on the planet Arkanis around the time of the Battle of Yavin, Hux was the illegitmate son of Commandant Brendol Hux, who fathered Armitage by a kitchen woman. In the aftermath of the Galactic Civil War, Hux was sent into the Unknown Regions where the First Order rose seeking to reclaim the glory of the Galactic Empire. A ruthless officer by the time of the cold war, Hux engineered the death of his father, oversaw the training and indoctrination of a new generation of stormtroopers, and ordered the firing of Starkiller's superweapon to destroy the New Republic capital of Hosnian Prime. During the war that ensued with the Resistance, Hux served as commanding officer of the Mega-class Star Dreadnought Supremacy until its destruction shortly before the Battle of Crait.
Hux's influence was diminished by Ren's accession to the rank of Supreme Leader. Though he served on the Supreme Council alongside other members of First Order High Command, Hux had little independent authority without supervision, and was made to serve below Allegiant General Enric Pryde. As a man who harbored ambitions to rule the galaxy, Hux was not content to sit in the shadow of Ren or Pryde. Therefore, he secretly turned against the First Order's interests by passing information to the Resistance, determined to see his rivals lose the war. When Pryde deduced that Hux was a spy, the Allegiant General executed his younger colleague for committing treason against the First Order.
Personality and traits
Armitage Hux was a male human with red hair and pale skin. When he was a young child, his father Brendol Hux regarded him as a weak-willed boy. In his childhood, Hux was frequently belittled by his father. Despite Brendol's disdain for his own child, both Gallius Rax and Rae Sloane recognized that Armitage had the potential to become a military commander of the First Order. Under Rax's influence, the boy grew more vicious and was willing to order his father's child soldiers to hurt each other in order to assert his authority. From childhood, Hux was raised on stories of heroic Imperials and how the Empire had brought peace and order to the galaxy following the Clone Wars. Hux believed that the galaxy needed to be saved from chaos and that the New Republic was too weak to rein in these problems. Because he was born out of wedlock, he also held some incense against references to his mother, especially those done in a mocking light, which was best evident during the Evacuation of D'Qar, where Poe Dameron's insinuation that Leia wanted to give a message about Hux's mother was enough to have Hux angrily order for the ship to open fire on Dameron's X-wing.
As an adult, General Hux was a methodical commander who continued his father's program of training stormtroopers from infancy. Hux was a scientific and technologically-minded man who had little patience and understanding for Force-wielders like Kylo Ren. Hux had an acrimonious relationship with Kylo Ren and the two competed for the favor of the First Order's Supreme Leader Snoke. This hatred often made Hux treat Kylo like he was inferior to him and address and talk to Kylo like an adult would to a child. This infuriated Kylo and would turn out to be a bad decision for Hux in the future. Hux was also rankled by Kylo Ren's questioning of his faith in his men and methods. He also tried to deflect blame onto Kylo after First Order forces on Takodana failed to recover BB-8 and the map to Luke Skywalker.
He likewise hated Kylo Ren, to the extent that he secretly derived pleasure from whenever Kylo failed his mission or whenever Snoke reprimanded him, and also was glad that Kylo needed rescuing from the Starkiller Base after he was beaten by Rey, a lightsaber novice. Hux was also disgusted by Kylo's lack of self-control and frequent emotional outbursts. His disdain for Kylo was such that after Snoke was prematurely killed, he initially considered assassinating Kylo on the spot while the latter was still unconscious prior to his stirring forcing him to abandon that plan, and shortly afterward made clear he had zero intention of acknowledging Kylo as the new Supreme Leader, and only ended up acknowledging it after Kylo telekinetically strangled him. Even afterward, however, he made subtle jabs at Kylo's expense, as after the walkers attacked what appeared to be Luke Skywalker himself with a rain of blaster bolts on Kylo's orders, Hux proceeded to sarcastically ask if the blasts killed Skywalker before the cloud dispersed and revealed he was still present. His loathing for Kylo Ren was so great that he was willing to secretly aid the Resistance, not out of any loyalty to them, but simply because he did not want to see Kylo succeed. By that point, Hux believed that the Supreme Leader had gone mad for chasing the "ghost" of Emperor Palpatine whereas flames of rebellion burned across the galaxy, demonstrating that Hux wasn't a person who believed in the supernatural and mystic ways of the Force.
Due to his upbringing, Hux believed that he was destined to rule the galaxy. He regarded the New Republic as an illegitimate government that had to be destroyed in order to usher in the First Order. Hux believed that Starkiller Base held the key to retaking the galaxy from the New Republic. Hux never saw the First Order as the restoration of the Empire, but rather a new and improved faction. While Hux was distressed by the Resistance's destruction of Starkiller Base, he nevertheless complied with Snoke's orders to recover Kylo Ren and bring him to the Supreme Leader.
Hux showed some degree of sadism, as evidenced during the late stages of the attack on the Resistance fleet, where he had the Supremacy pick off the various escaping U-55 orbital loadlifters. He was highly ambitious too, wanting to have direct control over the Supremacy, although he was smart enough to know he should keep such desires buried lest he get negative attention from either Kylo Ren or Snoke. In addition, like most First Order officers, Hux was xenophobic: referring to Chewbacca as a "beast" instead of his species' name. Hux came to hate the Knights of Ren as well for their unkempt appearance and for how they treaded dirt into the polished halls of the First Order capital ships.
Kylo Ren had always wondered why Snoke would keep Hux around. When this was brought to his attention, an amused Snoke revealed that for all his supposed weaknesses, Hux would always be a reliable asset. Snoke, who used Hux as a tool, was unaware that Hux had ambitions of usurping him to take the title of Supreme Leader for himself; if Snoke did know, however, he probably wouldn't have cared in the slightest. Unfortunately for Hux, Ren had the same idea and took the position of Supreme Leader after killing Snoke, leading Hux to serve him. However, as Hux was known to have ordered Phasma to kill his own father, Ren brought him wherever he went, like Crait, to supervise him and prevent any potential act of treason. After the Battle of Crait, Ren remained distrustful of Hux and refused to lower his guard around someone he considered devious and ensured the general had little independent authority without supervision, opting to assign Allegiant General Pryde or the Knights of Ren before entrusting something of importance to Hux.
Skills and abilities
As a General in the First Order, Armitage Hux commanded the First Order's armies and Starkiller Base. He was familiar with the operating systems of a Resurgent-class Star Destroyer and Starkiller Base. Although his technical rank was General, he commanded more authority in actuality than a standard general, though Snoke refused to promote him to the more appropriate rank of Grand Marshal.
General Hux wore a charcoal grey general's uniform, black gloves, a polished officer's buckle, traditional flared-hip breeches, and insulated boots. He also wore a crested command cap emblazoned with the insignia of the First Order and a gaberwool officer's greatcoat. Hux believed that a tidy appearance was essential to maintaining discipline. When addressing his men, he wore a parade uniform designed to broadcast his authority as a First Order General.
After the Battle of Starkiller Base, Hux carried a cross draw holstered SE-44C blaster pistol and a monomolecular dagger hidden in his sleeve.
