General Hux is a male movie character that features in Star Wars.
Armitage Hux was a male human who lived in the galaxy far, far away where he grew up in the years following the Battle of Endor. The result of that battle saw the collapse of the Galactic Empire though a number of former officers managed to flee where they went about to create the First Order. This military regime that operated within the Unknown Regions looked to conquer the galaxy from the New Republic that was formed by the Rebel Alliance. Within this government, Hux rose through the ranks where he eventually reached the position of General within its military hierarchy.
The hatred he felt for Kylo Ren led to Hux serving as a spy who was feeding intelligence to the Resistance. This was primarily done so to subvert the Supreme Leader and ensure his failure. When Emperor Palpatine re-emerged in the galaxy, Hux secretly fed this information to the Resistance where he informed them about the rise of the Sith and the deployment of the Final Order.
Arriving around Kijimi, Hux and Pryde reported to Supreme Leader Kylo Ren that the Resistance had been tracked to the planet. At first, General Hux suggested an orbital bombardment but was cut off by Kylo Ren who instead lead the search for Rey on the planet. Unknown to the First Order, the Resistance had infiltrated the Star Destroyer in order to free Chewbacca from the detention centre. They succeeded in freeing the Wookiee but were surrounded by the First Order with Allegiant-General Pryde ordering their execution. The band of Resistance fighters were then taken to be shot by Stormtroopers with General Hux in attendance where he eliminated the troopers and freed the rebels. It was then that he revealed that he was the spy and aided in their escape. He jammed all surveillance and took the Resistance fighters to the hangar holding the Millennium Falcon where he asked Finn to shoot him to make it appear that Hux had resisted but was forced to aid them. After departing, Hux reported to Pryde that the Resistance fighters had escaped despite his efforts but the Allegiant-General then killed him. He then reported to Kylo Ren that Hux had been the spy in their ranks that had been aiding the Resistance.
