Jober Tavson was a human male who held the rank of Lieutenant and served as the pilot for the Upsilon-class command shuttle[2] of Kylo Ren, Supreme Leader of the First Order.[1]


Tavson piloted Kylo Ren Upsilon-class shuttle.

In the year 34 ABY,[3] he had the military rank of Lieutenant[4] and piloted the shuttle above First Order forces as they marched across the salt flats of the planet Crait toward the surviving members of the Resistance, who had taken refuge in an old Rebel outpost. Once the First Order reached the outpost, Ren commanded his forces during the Battle of Crait while standing over Tavson's shoulder. When the Jedi Master Luke Skywalker emerged from the outpost and survived a full barrage of all of the First Order's weaponry, the Supreme Leader ordered the shuttle land so he could confront the Jedi alone. General Armitage Hux initially objected to this idea, but after Ren used the Force to hurl Hux into a wall, Tavson quickly obeyed the command. Skywalker ultimately was revealed to have only been projecting an image of himself on to Crait using the Force, and while Ren was distracted by the projection the surviving Resistance members escaped.[1]
