Beaumont Kinn


Beaumont Kin is a fictional character from the "Star Wars" universe who made his appearance in the 2019 film "Star Wars: Episode IX - The Rise of Skywalker". He was portrayed by British actor Dominic Monaghan, who is renowned for his roles in "Lost" television series and "The Lord of the Rings" movie franchise. Kin's character is a historian and scholar who is a part of the Resistance group in Star Wars canon.

Notably, Beaumont Kin is recognized for his considerable lore and understanding of ancient Jedi and Sith customs, including their history and Legends. His character was part of the Resistance’s attempts to understand and decipher the Sith language, which was not legally translated by protocol droids in the Star Wars universe due to sanctions imposed by the New Republic.

His character provides important exposition in the film, particularly during the quest for the Sith Wayfinder, a device that would lead the way to Emperor Palpatine. Kin helps lead a successful mission to Pasaana, a desert planet where a Sith artifact known as a Wayfinder was located.

Despite his intellectual and historian background, Beaumont Kin shows prowess in battle. He took part in the Battle of Exegol, a climactic confrontation between the Resistance and the Sith Eternal forces on the sith throneworld. His dedication and courage in supporting the resistance make him an essential character in the final instalment of the Star Wars saga.

It is important to note that while Kin’s character screen time is relatively short in the broader context of the film, his role is pivotal. Not only does he explain critical plot points and lend his expertise to the Resistance efforts, but his character also represents how knowledge and scholarly pursuits can play a critical role in monumental battles in the "Star Wars" universe.
