Let’s be honest. Darth Vader isn’t Kylo Ren’s true role model -Severus Snape is.
Contains spoilers for Star Wars - The Force Awakens and Harry Potter.
This is just for fun (repeat fun peeps) but come on -
1) Long black robes - check
2) Fluffy black hair - check
3) Similar facial features and exact same colouring - check
4) Use of /attraction to Dark side/arts especially in the beginning as a way to bolster power and self esteem - check.
5) Troubled background/relationship with family - check
6) Starts off story in a villainous/antagonist role but with hints of a redemptive quality - check
7) Is seduced into initially following bald headed evil dude with delusions of grandeur whose evil powers have turned them ugly- check
Star Wars - Supreme Leader Snoke
Harry Potter - Lord Voldemort
8) Thinking Dark side/arts will attract Light side woman they are fascinated with who is appalled and clearly seems to be interested in another guy - check.
I’d be careful Kylo, Severus could tell you all about where following the Dark Arts, I mean, Side leads and you don’t want to be at Hogwarts School of the Force teaching precocious Jedi wizards in twenty years time, regretting your life decisions! Or sacrificing yourself because redemption equals death.
