Since I haven't yet seen the movie myself you won't be getting any spoilers out of me, but this is a character known to be Kylo Ren, an heir to Darth Vader's dark plans. This personage in black and gray suit, helmet, and cape is already available as a Christmas ornament from Hallmark. This ornament includes Kylo Ren's lightsaber. He built this dangerous weapon himself using an unstable crystal so that it is jagged and crackles unlike the usual lightsaber. Perhaps this is a metaphor for the villain himself.

Kylo Ren is undoubtedly an awesome villain so that good has a chance to triumph over evil. This little bit of evil is just a part of the fun of the overall Star Wars franchise. He started out life as Ben Solo, the son of Han and Leia. This is what I was able to gather by googling his name. So no spoilers there. I will let you in on a little secret -- I saw the original movie in theaters 125 times. I plan to go broke shortly.

Hallmark has been making Keepsake Ornament Collections since a few years before the Force originally awakened back in 1977. Since then they have made hundreds of ornaments, including many Star Wars ornaments.
