Star Wars’ The defeat of the Knights of London was more serious than we imagined. Presented as a land of shadow warriors under the command of Kylo Ren (Adam Driver), Order has been underutilized throughout the sequel trilogy. Likewise, revelations about Ben Solo and his alienation of Kylo have made the mistake with the Knights of Ren even worse.
Debut Divine Power AwakensThe Force vision and flashback sequence Rey (Daisy Ridley) experiences when she first touches the legendary lightsaber that Anakin and Luke Skywalker originally possessed. However, the entire Knight Order was never seen or mentioned the last jedi. Likewise, the Knights of Ren in the rise of skywalkerthough what they do should be more important to Ben Solo’s Kylo Ren on an emotional level.

“Although he didn’t need the helmet to intimidate his followers, he found that he really liked the way it made them cringe. His helmet helped reinforce his place in the Knights of Ren. He feels like he really belongs.”
That last sentence is worth mentioning, confirming that Kylo Ren has found a group on the dark side to which he finally feels he belongs. Again, hints that this sense of belonging is much stronger than he felt as Luke’s apprentice at the Jedi Academy.
The Rise of Skywalker doesn’t give Ren Knight any emotional meaning

Unfortunately, although the redeemed Ben faced the knight in a duel that was too short, to no avail. the rise of skywalkerThe above excerpt makes it clear that the Knights of Ren are supposed to be a family of explorers.
