Character history

Kyle Reese was a soldier in the post-apocalyptic future of the Terminator universe (where most of humanity had been wiped out by an artificial intelligence entity known as Skynet). Reese was one of the last remaining human survivors of the war on humanity launched by the self-aware computer system, Skynet, being himself born after the war. Reese survived the capture and killing of his fellow humans only to serve as a worker in one of Skynet's concentration camps, where he and others were forced to load huge numbers of bodies into Skynet's machines to be exterminated. Reese's freedom would come when a Resistance movement, led by John Connor (whom Reese would unwittingly father later in the movie), freed him and the others from Skynet. After the camps Reese served in the 132nd under Perry from 2021 to 2027 before transferring as a sergeant to Tech-Com under John Connor himself. John Connor and the resistance would eventually rally enough remaining humans and resources to launch an assault on Skynet.
The final assault would eventually allow the human resistance to cripple Skynet, as Reese explains in The Terminator. The resistance was able to destroy Skynet's defense grid allowing them to enter Skynet's main complex and attempt to destroy it. Skynet however would have a final move left: using time displacement equipment, Skynet would send one of its most feared machines back (the terminator of the title) to 1984 to kill the young Sarah Connor, known to have been the mother of resistance leader John Connor, and thus prevent the birth of Connor and his future rebellion. Realizing what Skynet was about to do, John Connor would send back a soldier to protect himself from the machine menace. It would be Reese who would volunteer himself to go back (a point of mention here is that in the original screenplay two humans were sent back, however one would die as a result of being merged with a brick wall when the process went wrong). Once Reese had gone through, the time travel equipment would be destroyed leaving only Reese and the Terminator in 1984.
Arriving unarmed and facing a menace whom he could not recognize, Reese located Sarah Connor, warning her of the impending doom of the human race and of the future significance carried by her and her unborn son. Though initially hostile towards Reese, Sarah would grow to trust and love him as he would become the only thing between her and the Terminator. On the run from the Terminator, Reese and Sarah would share a night of intimacy in which John Connor would be conceived. Reese's life however was cut short when both he and Sarah were forced to confront the Terminator. Reese received a number of fatal blows while attempting to destroy the Terminator and was killed. Sarah Connor would then go on to destroy the crippled android and cement her resolve to ready herself for the impending future.
Growing up in the future where the machines had all but wiped out the human race, Reese was both physically and mentally hardened. His body was scarred from numerous battles with Skynet and he had a number of burns as a result of the Time Travel process. One of the few times Reese shows emotion he weeps at the future loss of nature (in a scene deleted from the film):
"I'm wrong here. I wasn't meant to see this (referring to a forest with a creek running through it)... It's...like some dream. This...this.....and you...all so...beautiful. It hurts, Sarah. More than death. Don't you understand...it's all gone!" Though hard and battle weary, Reese had a love for Sarah Connor, a woman whom he'd never met and only through a photo could identify. The affection Reese felt for Sarah is similar to that of a knight's love for a princess in medieval literature - the knight has already fallen in love with the princess based purely on word of mouth about her goodness without having actually met her, and Reese had loved Sarah before he even met her, based on the legend that surrounded her and on the image of her from the photograph given to him by John. He would live on through John Connor and Sarah Connor, who would forever remember him as her lover and saviour.
