4. How Did Ben Solo become Kylo Ren?

The cool thing about this question is, is how layered it is. It’s like an onion really, this question, isn’t it? By itself, it’s boring and harmless, but start peeling away the outer layers (the mask) and delving deeper, we see the complexities of the character that might actually be the most interesting in the new sequel trilogy.

There are more questions that are a part of it, like: how did Snoke find out about Ben Solo? What lured Ben to the dark side? What set him on the path to consider the dark side? And, I hope these questions are answered in Star Wars: The Last Jedi because having to wait until Episode IX would be agony.
