He was first seen with Lor San Tekka, who gave him the map to Luke Skywalker. Poe subsequently gave it to BB-8, claiming it was safer with the droid, before being captured by Kylo Ren. Kylo learned of this by assaulting him with the Dark side of the Force, and then left Poe temporarily. Fortunately, he escaped with help from a renegade who he named Finn, but they were separated on Jakku when the First Order tracked them down. Unable to locate Finn, Poe finally returned to D'qar on his own, where the two were happily reunited. Poe fought in the Battle of Starkiller Base, descending into the superstructure with BB-8, and he personally destroyed the weapon.
In the most recent installment, Poe assists Finn and Rose in defeating the First Order while Rey is off training with Luke Skywalker. During the evacuation on D'qar, he was demoted to captain by Leia Organa for disobeying her direct orders not to engage the dreadnought, leading their bombers including Paige Tico to be wiped out. He also staged a mutiny against Admiral Amilyn Holdo, but is stunned by a recovered Leia who was injured from getting pulled into space when the bridge of the Raddus was blown up by Poldin LeHuse, resulting in Admiral Ackbar's demise.
