To say that General Hux was irritated when he learned that there would be another Knight of Ren joining the crew of Starkiller Base would be an understatement. The general was distraught. Already, the Knights had cost him more than he was willing to pay in both credits and sanity. Their master had no respect for order and was, in Hux’s opinion, the initiator of every major issue on the Base.
The tone of Ren’s voice when he told Hux about his pupil was arrogant and completely insufferable. Hux had wanted to punch him in the throat. Yet, Supreme Leader Snoke had insisted that this girl was brought in. Hux could not argue, but he could refuse to meet this girl upon her arrival. He took that one liberty he was offered.
Hux braced himself for twice the amount of bills for control panels and radars and ventilation systems that had been senselessly destroyed in tantrums that were brushed off as necessary to remain in the Dark Side of the Force that only two at Starkiller Base had adopted. He worked harder to ally the First Order with star systems that would protect them from the financial issues these inside attacks caused. He was told that the girl had arrived, but there was never an increase in these demands. If anything, there was a decrease.
Perhaps there had been an error in communications. As a month passed, that was what Hux came to fully believe. He had never seen the girl, and no Knight of Ren was capable of being more than a rage-fueled weapon. She must not exist.
He expressed this belief to Phasma once. “With all due respect, General,” she had said, “that is impossible. I have seen her with my own eyes.”
“The impossible thing,” Hux had countered, “is that someone who trained under Ren has any self-control. You may have been mistaken, Captain.”
Phasma shook her head. “I don’t believe that is the case. She does appear to be incredibly different from the Commander, that I will give you. There is a tranquility about her that I don’t know how the Commander tolerates.”
“Any Knight of Ren who is tranquil must not be a Knight of Ren at all,” Hux insisted. “No, Captain. I will have to see this to believe it.”
