In The Last Jedi, it is mentioned that some students followed Kylo Ren on the run from the academy. In a document, are you informed of the fate of these students?

The runaways of Ren?

  • Could you clarify your title? I can see it going in multiple directions and am not sure what you are trying to ask. – amflare Dec 20 '17 at 17:10
  • The other students, are the Ren Knights? – Dev Aires Dec 20 '17 at 17:19
  • This is certainly the prevailing theory right now, but I've yet to see anything confirming it. – phantom42 Dec 20 '17 at 17:33

    This is a dupe of this question – Edlothiad Dec 20 '17 at 17:38
  • Thanks @Edlothiad. I am new here :D – Dev Aires Dec 20 '17 at 17:40

The Knights of Ren were not Force-Sensitive (at least that is how they are portrayed) so it is unlikely (but plausible and possible) that these other students joined the Knights of Ren. Another answer that has come to my attention is that these students that left with Ren could have became the Red guards seen in Snokes throne room, as suggested by Star Wars Explained -


EDIT: Some members of The Knights Ren probably were force sensitive (with the exception of Kylo Ren), but this has not been shown yet in canon (as of December 2017.)

    The first line of the wookiepedia article you link says that they are force sensitive... – Jack Dec 20 '17 at 23:16
  • I also suspected that the Praetorian Guards were The Knights of Ren, but I'm not sure if this is officially the case. – Josh B. Dec 31 '17 at 17:37

    @JoshB. Apparently Rian Johnson has stated in a podcast that the Praetorian guards are not the Knights of Ren: "I guess I could’ve used them in place of the Praetorian guards but then it would feel like wasting them because all those guards had to die. And if Kylo had some kind of connection to them it would’ve added a complication that wouldn’t have helped the scene… Truth is, I just didn’t see a place for them in the movie." – Steven Rands Feb 1 '18 at 14:08
  • @StevenRands Interesting, thanks for sharing that! I hope we get to see the Knights of Ren in Episode IX. – Josh B. Feb 1 '18 at 23:55
