Monster Kyloooooo

Only one person in the First Order knew of Kylo Ren's true nature: Supreme Leader Snoke.

There were rumors, of course. That the man behind the mask wasn't a man, but that he wasn't another species either, not really—that he was something twisted, something ugly, like the dark side had corrupted him more fully than their esteemed Supreme Leader. Maybe that was why he was so powerful, some mused. It was probably why he was so unstable, others said. Some troopers scared young trainees with stories of Kylo Ren, the clawed, sharp-toothed monster that could rip out your heart if you even had a single thought of disobeying orders. And he could absolutely read your mind.

But they were just rumors. Stupid fancies created by feeble minds. General Hux had seen Kylo Ren's face, anyway, just earlier that day, and it was nothing to scare children with. If anything, he looked particularly young, perhaps surprisingly so—then again, given the occasional unnecessary destruction the force user caused with his lightsaber, maybe Hux thought the boyish face matched his behavior perfectly.

No one could have expected at that point in time that he'd be sent out to retrieve the knight as the planet collapsed.

Ren lay in the snow, for once covered in his own blood instead of the blood of others, his right arm hardly functioning and his mind in too much of a mess to bolster himself with the Force. He continued to reach feebly for his lightsaber anyway, even though there was no real way to reach it. A part of his mind realized the futility of struggling to do anything, that the rift that opened between him and the scavenger was soon going to swallow him as well and end his miserable existence. Or so he thought.

When Hux reached him in the shuttle, he'd be lying mostly still, head turned towards his fallen saber as he breathed shallowly. His robe was half carved open, a lightsaber slice to his right shoulder allowing the wind to blow the piece of fabric away and reveal the iridescent black-red of the skin underneath, more reptilian than human. But even though that almost scaly texture reached down his chest and up to his jawline, the cut on the side of his right sleeve showed burnt blackish fur, the same color of his hair. It was just enough to give the idea of how odd the amalgamation of features was—and that wasn't including the sharp teeth that showed past the knight's half-open mouth.

Hux was not one to pay attention to rumors, especially not gossip or some horror story shared by the young stormtroopers. Quite honestly, he wanted all of those discussions to stop entirely, but it was at least reinforcing obedience through fear. Not the best way to gain loyalty, but as long as it wasn't completely directed at Hux and more at Ren, then that was fine. He would be the one to actually inspire them through speeches and have them willingly fight for the First Order.

The less he thought about Ren, the better. Unfortunately, destiny always seemed to force him into positions where he couldn't just ignore the man.

By order of the Supreme Leader, Hux was forced to retrieve Ren from the collapse of his base. The base that he spent years of his life working on-- the base that was about to explode in just a few minutes. All of it gone in just a short amount of time. If he was a lesser man, Hux would've let his emotions overtake him, but he was a general and following this mission was at least something he could do. It wasn't something he liked, but it gave him something to focus on, instead of his utter failure.

He managed to locate Ren rather quickly and Hux ran over to his side, almost stunned by the near broken appearance of him. He was bleeding badly, his face scarred-- and what the hell were those scales?! For a moment, Hux just stood there with a stunned expression, although it was slowly turning into disgust as he caught sight of the fur and canines in Ren's mouth. What in the galaxy was he?

Not human, not fully at least. A sub species of some sort. Clearly inferior.

He didn't have time to question it, however, and he quickly ordered some troopers to carry Ren to his shuttle. They needed to get off this planet and although it was tempting to just leave this beast to die, he had his orders. He couldn't fail Snoke again.

When the knight was moved by the wary but obedient troopers, he was stirred out of his half-conscious daze with a cry of pain and became aware of his surroundings, his situation, once more. It... wasn't good, even if he could hardly believe the general and his soldiers were here to retrieve him. The planet collapsing, the girl and the map gone, the current loss of the movement of his arm, these people seeing what he is

"Hux," he rasped, reaching with his functioning arm towards the fallen damaged weapon in the snow. His gloves, both of them, seemed to be ripped at the fingertips, though for what reason wasn't immediately obvious. "My saber."

It was said almost as a plea despite his desire to word it as an order. The pain was getting to him, as was the cruel act he'd performed on the bridge of the oscillator. He was weak. The soldiers had no issue carrying him to the shuttle, at least, even if they were somewhat unnerved by Kylo Ren's not-human, not-alien appearance. He would need a new mask. But that would come later.

The stormtoopers were definitely wary of Ren and his abnormal appearance, but they were in no business in disobeying Hux. They also were rather determined to get off this planet, which wasn't going to happen until the knight was on the shuttle with them. For his part, Hux was inwardly proud that his soldiers were quick and efficient in getting the wounded man-- no, monster on his ship without any complaints.

It was what he expected, honestly. Quick and able to do their job without hesitation. It was only that one stormtrooper that really let Hux down. But enough of that for the time being, he had someone to focus on. Someone that was equally worth his hatred, although it was for different reasons.

Hux was barely able to hide back his sneer when Ren spoke to him, glancing at the fallen weapon that he was trying to reach for to no avail. While he just wanted to leave it, after all he didn't follow Ren's orders, Hux eventually decided that he should hold onto it. Could be useful in the future somehow. So he grabbed the weapon from the snow and followed his men into the shuttle. Despite retrieving the saber, however, the general had no intention in giving it back to Ren anytime soon.

No, he was a creature of some sort. Not only that, but he was clearly unstable, the only thing that made this whole matter worse. It was quite offensive that this non-human ordered his trained soldiers around and insulted Hux on various occasions, like he was better than them.

Ren didn't resist as he was carried on board and set on one of the benches, and before long the shuttle departed and Starkiller became a new star in the distance. Once the knight was inside, however, he became much less cooperative.

When the troopers tried to get close with the shuttle's emergency medical supplies (monster or not, this was Kylo Ren, and he was just about bleeding out), he shoved them away forcefully enough to make them stumble backwards and drop a few things. The dark side user almost fell onto the floor himself, just barely catching himself with his working arm before he toppled over. He was breathing heavily, muttering loudly enough to be understood.

"No, no no no no no—"

He scooted backwards just enough to prevent himself from falling, and his gloved hand went to hold the torn flap of his robes closed despite the pain it caused him. With his head hanging off the edge of the bench and his hair falling appropriately, the back of his neck was visible, displaying the black bony ridges that protruded from it. Were they much more pointed, it would have been accurate to call them spines.

If he had the energy, he'd be curling in on himself, but the slight curve of his back and half-bent legs that were hanging off the bench were as much as he could manage in his current state. He was trembling slightly, right arm lying uselessly below him.

[personal profile] huxceptional 2016-03-28 11:59 pm (UTC)(link)
He didn't have time to mourn Starkiller and perhaps it was the best. It was easier to lead and keep it together when he was distracted by Ren and his admittedly alarming appearance. Someone for him to direct his anger and disgust at instead of thinking about his own failures. There would be time for that, hopefully it would be in the privacy of his own room.

All assuming that Snoke just didn't kill him.

Shoving that thought aside, he looked at Ren when he heard the small shuffle between him and the troopers. Of course he couldn't make this easy for any of them. No, that would be too convenient. Hux stepped over to him and motioned for more of his soldiers to grab and prepare the medical supplies. They were somewhat grateful that the general was getting involved as they didn't want Ren's focus to be on them.

"Would you stop being a pain for one moment?"

lostapprentice: (b: i heard that)

[personal profile] lostapprentice 2016-03-29 12:53 am (UTC)(link)
The knight tensed as Hux approached, his working hand pressing the cloth against his skin as hard as he could as the other hand curled weakly. He could, perhaps, gather his strength with the Force to kill all the occupants of the shuttle and make his way to Snoke... surely Supreme Leader would understand the danger of lying there unmoving in front of people with weapons while he was weak and exposed, surely—

When the general spoke, Ren's head tilted upwards, enough to look at him from under his eyebrows, and his hair shifted enough to show that the tips of his ears were pointed and covered in that same dark scaly texture. There was uncertainty in his expression as he considered the man and his words, wondering what was going through his mind and not having the energy to even skim the surface of the redhead's emotions. He'd have to make do with observing his expression and body language.
huxceptional: Except not you tool (Haha you're hilarious)

[personal profile] huxceptional 2016-03-29 04:07 am (UTC)(link)
Hux took in Ren's features, now eyeing the scales covering his pointed ears. What other mutated parts was he hiding? He really didn't want to know what he looked like under those robes, he didn't want to see Ren's full body. Unfortunately, he may not have a choice if he had to ensure that the medics were able to assist Ren without any problems. He just... needed to push back his personal distaste for the time being.

Still, that didn't mean he had to like it. Or be completely successful in hiding his disdain.

"The Supreme Leader wanted you alive. If you don't want to disappoint him, I recommend you to actually listen to me and stay put so my men can get to work on you."

It clearly wasn't enough for Ren to have Force powers, he also had to be this monster. Two offensive things in one package for Hux to deal with. Fantastic.
lostapprentice: (b: i fucked up)

[personal profile] lostapprentice 2016-03-29 05:32 am (UTC)(link)
Kylo Ren took several seconds to stare at Hux, trying to discern if his movies were true. It would make sense that Leader Snoke wanted him alive, of course, but it was also a good way to get the knight to lower his guard. His eyes moved from the general's face to a random pipe along the edge of the wall as he chewed the inside of his lip. If what Hux was saying was true, and he came to Supreme Leader having killed a man who'd done his best to follow orders, it wouldn't reflect well on him. He let out a huff through his nose before speaking in a snippy tone.

"Watch them. Closely."

After another uncertain glance along the floor, he grunted and shoved himself back onto the bench, facing the ceiling. Ren took a few shaky breaths before starting to remove his clothing, knowing it was necessary for proper medical assistance but absolutely hating the idea that Hux and these soldiers would be seeing more of the mess that was his body.

His right arm being mostly useless impeded his efforts, but the troopers were (rightly) too uncertain to move forward to help. It wasn't a quick process but the fact that Kylo Ren was cooperating at all was a relief to those in the shuttle, even if the knight's appearance was unsettling.

The torn robe and gambeson were dropped onto the floor next to his heavy belt, but he kept everything else on, gloves included. Much like his neck, most of his torso and arms were covered in a smooth snakelike skin, though portions of it were the same as his face, as one would expect from any human. The transition between those different textures was reminiscent of an infection, the black-red scales overtaking the pale skin almost like spreading scabs. The outer parts of his arms, meanwhile, were covered in fur from shoulder to wrist, relatively short but curly like his hair. And where humans had curves or subtle lines, his inhuman skin had hard ridges, almost sharp where the lines of bones might have shown on a normal man.

Despite the almost-armored nature of that unnatural skin, the saber had cut clean into it, searing a single spot in his left shoulder and the side of his neck down into the muscles of his right shoulder. The small burn on his right upper arm was barely visible, hidden by burned tufts of fur but largely unimportant anyway. Unluckily, the bowcaster shot had hit him in the left side, where his more fragile human skin left him vulnerable, and blood still leaked from it slowly. From his pale sweaty face and the red smear of that wound, it was clear he'd lost a fair amount of blood already.

Hux's lips curled at Ren's response, not appreciating the tone that he dared to take with him. Truly, it was insulting that Ren dared to speak to him in such a manner. He might have respected him before all this, but now his disgust for Ren was overtaking any small amount he had for him. His appearance was even more grotesque than he imagined, with only few patches of human skin left on his body. No wonder he hid behind those robes. Regardless, he swallowed down his disgust and stepped closer, watching his medics get to Ren despite their trepidation.

Even though the scales were clearly a part of him, they looked more like a vile disease than anything else. Perhaps a perfect comparison for Ren and his scaly appearance. For their part, the staff was doing their best to not stare and just focus on dressing his injuries.

"If you attack any of my men during this process, I will personally sedate you." If Ren acted like a wild animal, then he was going to treat him as one.

Kylo Ren let a hiss out through his teeth as the worst of his wounds was treated, screwing his eyes shut and trying to ignore the fact that there was anyone else there at all. Unfortunately, Hux wasn't going to make it that easy. Of course not. He couldn't stay quiet like the other soldiers and leave Ren to be alone in his own mind.

Then again, maybe that was a good thing. He wasn't about to act anything other than annoyed about it, though.

"Don't pretend that you could lay a hand on me unless I wanted you to," he said almost breathlessly through the pain and exhaustion. His left hand was in a tight fist, the leather of his glove creaking, and the other would have been the same if not for the wound in his right shoulder.

[personal profile] huxceptional 2016-03-30 11:33 pm (UTC)(link)
While it was strange to see Ren in pain and obviously injured from his defeat, all of that seemed rather insignificant compared to the revelation that the knight was actually part monster. Or full monster, Hux wasn't sure at this point. He was going to find out though, one way or another. Once he was out of danger, Hux was going to get to the bottom of this.

"You're not in any position to take that arrogant tone with me."

Who was bleeding everywhere with medics tending to his grotesque form? Not Hux. Ren should know that non-humans were never treated especially well in the First Order.

[personal profile] lostapprentice 2016-03-31 12:00 am (UTC)(link)
Kylo Ren grit his teeth, but this time in anger, baring the sharp points where Hux could see them clearly.

"Whatever you think of me, I am still Master of the Knights of—"

He cut himself off with another sharp intake of breath, wincing and turning his head to the left as the medics began to work on his right shoulder. His unfocused eyes pointed towards the wall behind Hux for a moment before he turned them back up to the redheaded man.

"—Ren—and my objectives still trump yours in Supreme Leader's eyes," he finished.

[personal profile] huxceptional 2016-03-31 04:43 am (UTC)(link)
No wild animal would be complete without a set of sharp teeth emerging from its mouth. Absolutely fitting of an untamed beast that couldn't control himself. The more differences he saw between Ren and himself-- any normal human-- helped the general to look down on his so called co-commander even more.

That title never meant anything to Hux and he just stared at the injured beast with that look of mild indifference mixed with scorn. However, his face twitched when Ren brought up Snoke, hot anger flaring through his mind and he wanted more than ever to just eject him into space. The Supreme Leader always favored Ren and placed high importance on his goals, even though he surely knew about his condition. That meant Snoke allowed this non-human to have this much power and authority over the stormtroopers. Men he trained and perfected. It was an insult to them and more importantly an insult to him that Ren could boss them around.

Still, he stared down at Ren with that same expression.

"Are you done?"

lostapprentice: (k: me? hesitate? nawwww)

[personal profile] lostapprentice 2016-07-21 06:43 am (UTC)(link)
Although it took a few arguments between Kylo Ren and General Hux for the plan to be completed—the same back-and-forth criticisms and retorts that were well known among the Finalizer's crew—it was a productive sort of exchange, and the frustrations that led Ren to destroy things had been cautiously replaced with an anxious hope that this would get him the information he sought.

He couldn't shake the feeling he was getting about it, but he knew it would be regarded by Hux and several others as nonsense if he provided no real concrete retorts. They didn't understand the Force, and it would take too much energy that he wasn't willing to expend to try to figure out what exactly was wrong. Even he couldn't see any real flaw in the plan, logically. He would just have to hope his instinct was wrong this time.

It wasn't long after their so-called bait was taken for it to prove correct, unfortunately.

The Resistance had brought far more fighters than would have been necessary for an attack on an operation of the scale they'd tried to portray—Ren cursed himself when he remembered that Skywalker and undoubtedly his new trainee would have been able to guide them based on their own senses, too. They would have gotten the same feeling as he did, only they were accepted and trusted by their allies. If only he had gone to Supreme Leader and asked him for advice on this operation... they might have avoided this sort of failure.

The fact that their soldiers were told to disable rather than kill if at all possible for this mission might have been another factor that contributed to the way their numbers were quickly dwindling. More than half the TIEs sent on this mission were destroyed, their ground troops were overwhelmed, and the enemy was using aggressive tactics.

Ren watched this with growing frustration and anxiety from the viewport of their makeshift base on this cloudy planet's surface. He was just about to turn to leave and join the fray himself when something caught his attention—a sharp feeling that drove him to focus on a single blue X-Wing in particular as it looped around to avoid getting hit.

"I have a bad feeling about this," he whispered to himself, eyes not leaving that fighter.

[personal profile] huxceptional 2016-07-24 01:15 am (UTC)(link)
Hux was tense, his entire body strung up and his gloved hands closed tightly into fists as he watched their forces be overwhelmed by the Resistance fighters. It didn't need to be said that his plan was failing on all accounts and the general cursed himself for leading another failed operation like this. If the Supreme Leader wanted to execute him after this, he wouldn't blame him in the slightest.

But now wasn't the time to think of that. Hux still had a role to fulfill.

He looked away from the viewport for a moment, barking more orders to somehow salvage the situation. Cut down on losses, kill on sight, since there was no possibility of capturing a Resistance officer now.
lostapprentice: (k: 99 problems but a blaster ain't one)

[personal profile] lostapprentice 2016-07-24 01:56 am (UTC)(link)
Ren took a step back as he watched the ship twirl and manage to clip the wing of their TIEs, and very suddenly he realized the X-Wing was heading straight towards them.

Oh.

He knew what was going to happen. He knew it seconds before it happened, before the laser cannons were even pointed at the window he was looking through. And it did happen, exactly as he perceived it—the pilot fired, their aim nearly perfect, and the lasers headed straight towards his and Hux's makeshift command.

And then they froze.

Not just the twin red beams that erupted from the fighter milliseconds earlier, but the X-Wing itself—all of them were suspended in place, vibrating as they fought against the invisible force holding them there.

Kylo Ren's entire body shook, too, both arms held out in front of him and hands splayed, feet apart as he braced against the force of the enemy's engines and their weapons. Anyone looking at him would see the occasional flicker of darkness in the air, arcing like a shadowy lightning filled with grainy points of light. But they wouldn't be able to watch for long. The knight spoke.

"Go," he said, struggling to speak through the effort at first. He knew, however, that such a soft command would not be quickly followed, and he could sense that more than a few officers would hesitate due to the shock of what they were witnessing. So to enforce the order, he repeated it again—this time nearly roaring the word.

"GO!"
huxceptional: (All you peons)

[personal profile] huxceptional 2016-07-25 01:36 am (UTC)(link)
Hux stood frozen, staring outside the window at the X-wing suspended in the air, just seconds away from killing him and the rest of his men on board. With his heart racing, he turned his widened eyes over to Ren, knowing that he was behind whatever was going on right now. He... stopped the ship from shooting him, stopped the X-wing with the Force.

Ren saved him and the other officers.

He had no time to express his gratitude, however, as Ren's shout snapped Hux out of his shocked mindset. The general quickly turned to his men and started yelling at them to evacuate. They had no time to waste.
lostapprentice: (k: the falcon)

[personal profile] lostapprentice 2016-07-25 02:25 am (UTC)(link)
As soon as the last officer left that room, Ren put everything he could into diverting both the X-Wing and the shots. With a yell of effort, his hands moved to the right, throwing the fighter into a spin that would lead it straight into the path of another.

Unfortunately, his concentration wasn't strong enough.

The transparisteel shattered with a great crash as it was hit by the two lasers, the force of the blast launching the knight backwards into one of the consoles, and he let out a cry of pain when he hit the hard metal. One gloved hand grasped the top of the structure as he slid down, in an attempt to keep himself from falling to the floor completely. But the pain of the new burns and dozens of clear shards digging into his skin made it difficult to get to his feet. He needed to take a moment to recover, but he refused to allow himself that. He had to keep moving and figure out how to remedy this situation if it was possible.
huxceptional: (Well shit)

[personal profile] huxceptional 2016-07-26 12:22 am (UTC)(link)
Hux continued to direct his men away from the command base, trying to cut down as many losses as possible. Luckily, they were competent and didn't need to be told twice or how to evacuate, after all, they were trained to be ready for these type of situations. Although Hux should be making his way off the base as well, he looked back to where Kylo Ren was at, feeling a small amount of concern over the Force user.

He did just save him and several individuals, Hux wasn't going to forget that.

Of course, the rational part of him urged that he needed to leave and that Ren could very well take care of himself. It was the part of Hux that he always listened to and it served him well all these years. There was no reason to ignore it now.

Hux turned on his heels and made his way back to the room where Ren is at.
lostapprentice: (k: another dramatic closeup)

[personal profile] lostapprentice 2016-07-26 12:45 am (UTC)(link)
By the time Hux reached him again, the man had at least managed to get to his feet, though he was still leaning heavily against a console. One of his legs was refusing to support any weight, and it was obvious why—a large shard of the window was sticking out of his calf. Ren himself hadn't quite reached that realization yet, however; he was instead struggling to stay up and remove his hood for some reason.

Hux's reemergence was unexpected, enough to stop Ren's thoughts and make him turn his head towards the general, breathing heavily.

"What are you doing," he asked, clearly having difficulty even through the mask's filters.
huxceptional: I hate the Force 0/10 (First Order)

[personal profile] huxceptional 2016-07-28 05:33 am (UTC)(link)
"Rescuing you."

Don't question this, Ren. Hux took note of the injuries he was sustaining, but chose not to comment about them. It wasn't like he could do anything about them anyway, not right now. They needed to evacuate and then he could shove his co-commander into a medbay.

He briskly walked over to him and attempted to help Ren, trying to ignore the sense of familiarity at this. Although, none of this was his fault this time and in fact, saved Hux just a few minutes ago.

"The Supreme Leader would not be thrilled to lose his apprentice now." There, a logical reason for him to return.
lostapprentice: (k: oh. okay.)

[personal profile] lostapprentice 2016-07-28 05:47 am (UTC)(link)
The knight let out a growl, attempting to push off of the console and nearly falling back to his knees from the action. It was only then that he finally glanced down and moved to rip out the offending piece of shrapnel with a hiss, and he likely would have collapsed at that point if Hux hadn't stepped forward to help keep him up.

"I don't need rescuing," he replied stubbornly. "And I am not your responsibility. You should go on in case another pilot decides one shot wasn't good enough."

Ren shuddered, taking in a sharp breath—apparently he had another reason to get Hux away, now. He shoved the other man forward slightly, staggering a bit but staying upright as he leaned heavily on his left leg. Moving his hood back from his helm, he started to limp towards the wall nearest the door.
huxceptional: (Scorn)

[personal profile] huxceptional 2016-08-01 02:43 am (UTC)(link)
Of course Ren would just rip the shrapnel out without any concern of damaging his innards more or bleeding out. Hux would be more disgusted if he had the time, but right now, they still needed to leave. He'll even be courteous enough not to complain about the blood that's on his clothes now. Ugh.

"You clearly do."

Despite the shove, Hux only makes it to the door, but he doesn't quite leave yet. He wants to know what the hell Ren is doing when he's still bleeding and in danger here. It's not like he's worried or anything!!

"What are you doing?"
lostapprentice: (b: the dark side)

[personal profile] lostapprentice 2016-08-02 06:49 am (UTC)(link)
"What I have to."

Ren's reply was short and impatient, too focused on what he needed to do to fix the situation to consider explaining anything to Hux, who should have already been gone by now. There was little point arguing. If the general wanted to stay and risk his life, that was his problem.

The knight had to lean heavily against the wall to get both his hands up to his mask, which came off quickly and fell to the floor with a thunk. He didn't waste any time reaching into his cloak to retrieve something, but it was clear fairly soon he wasn't pleased with what he found, yellow eyes narrowing and jaw clenching.

"Damn it," he hissed, drawing out one of those same clear packs Hux had seen when he first discovered Ren's true nature—but this one had been torn half open by a piece of shrapnel, the blood inside having drained almost completely away. The black of Ren's robes and the thickness of his tunic meant it hadn't been noticeable until now.
huxceptional: (Gross)

[personal profile] huxceptional 2016-08-03 02:33 am (UTC)(link)
What a disgusting sight.

Hux made no move to help Ren, wanting to be away from his beastly behavior. He was always going to regard those blood packs as grotesque, no matter how much the knight threatened him. Still, he stood by the door as he waited for Ren, clearly impatient and ready to leave as soon as he was ready. While he wanted to chide him for needing to do this now, Hux figured that this was extremely necessary.

Not even Ren would stand back and drink blood if he didn't have to. This didn't mean that he had to like it at all.
