Kylo Ren is a dark, moody (very tall) light saber-wielding warrior. But now he shares his name with a cute creature - a tiny white tiger cub that was born this month in North Texas, according to the Dallas Morning News.

In-Sync Exotics Wildlife Rescue in Wylie takes in abused, neglected or unwanted animals, and law enforcement earlier this year had seized Kylo’s parents by illegal owners and kept them at the sanctuary, it said in a news release. Kylo’s mother, Zahra, seemed to reject him because she cleaned him off but "did not keep him close for warmth or protection," and so the sanctuary’s founder and veterinarian are now caring for the cub, according to the sanctuary’s Facebook post.

Kylo Ren is a dark, moody (very tall) light saber-wielding warrior. But now he shares his name with a cute creature - a tiny white tiger cub that was born this month in North Texas, according to the Dallas Morning News.

Kylo Ren (whose name was inspired by the zoo founder’s love for Star Wars) is given constant care by the vet, who the Dallas Morning News reported feeds him three times daily with a special formula. Weighing at a pound at birth on Mar. 6, the sanctuary said in its news release he has been steadily gaining weight, and happily shared photos of the cub nestled next to a toy plush lion.

His white fur is a result of inbreeding, and the Dallas Morning News said his parents were both inbred. There is no such thing as a species of white tigers, since their color is caused by breeding together two Bengal tigers which both carry a recessive gene determining coat color, according to the Wild Cat Sanctuary. Inbreeding poses health problems such as cleft palates, scoliosis and crossed eyes, according to the Wild Cat Sanctuary.

The Association of Zoos and Aquariums, a nonprofit organization which accredits zoos and aquariums, formalized its ban on inbreeding white tigers in 2011 due to inbreeding’s negative health effects and how it affects tracking endangered species by creating a "domesticated form of the species."

The sanctuary said in its posts that Kylo is healthy, and it’s happy he has a "forever home."
