Character Bio (As of The Last Jedi) - ...The Millennium Falcon returned to the Resistance base on the planet D'Qar, where Finn was treated for his wounds. The Resistance forces celebrated their victory over the First Order, though Rey was left with a feeling of sadness. She was greeted at the base by General Organa, and the two embraced in a long hug. The events that had unfolded awakened R2-D2, who had been in low power mode ever since Skywalker disappeared, and the droid combined the information contained within his databanks with the map that BB-8 carried to show a completed map to where Skywalker had gone. The Resistance broke out into celebration over the news that the last Jedi could be found, and Rey finally met Dameron after hearing about him from BB-8.
Rey kept Skywalker's lightsaber with her and prepared to depart from D'Qar for Skywalker's world with Chewbacca and Artoo. She said goodbye to the unconscious Finn, kissing him on the forehead and stating that "they would see each other again some day". Outside of the Falcon, General Organa told her that she was proud of what Rey was about to do. Rey felt her fear, however, as Rey knew that Organa blamed herself for sending her son away to be with her brother only for Ben Solo to turn to the dark side. Organa was confident, however, that Rey would not share the same fate as her son, giving her a beacon to find her way back. Rey boarded the Millennium Falcon, took the pilot's seat, and set a course for Ahch-To, the world where Skywalker made his exile. After landing on one of the planet's small islands, Rey ventured throughout the island's ancient ruins and found the old Jedi Master in seclusion. Skywalker, clearly haunted by the past, said nothing as Rey handed him his father's lightsaber, a symbol of the only hope the galaxy had left—the return of the Jedi...
Star Wars Episode VIII: The Last Jedi
Upon offering Luke his old lightsaber, Rey was shocked to see him discard the weapon after briefly examining it and immediately leaving the plateau. The entire way down, Rey desperately tried to recruit Luke to help the remaining members of the Resistance, but he blatantly refused. After recovering his lightsaber, Rey continued to follow him across the island, despite being ordered to leave. Eventually, she stumbled upon an old tree containing some of the last recorded Jedi texts from the very beginning of the Jedi Order, claiming the location was familiar to her. An intrigued Luke asked Rey to elaborate, but she continued to press him to come out of hiding and help fight the First Order. Luke once more refused, explaining that he did not come to the planet to hide, but to die where the Jedi Order first started. Later, when Luke arrived at the Millennium Falcon, Rey and Chewbacca informed him that Han had been murdered, shocking Luke. Afterwards, the old Master pressed Rey for her true motives for coming to Ahch-To. Rey explained that she had a power inside of her that she did not understand and was frightened of, as well as wondering about her place in the galaxy. That night, Rey woke to see Luke staring at her; he agreed to give Rey no more than three lessons of the Jedi Order and that they would start at dawn.
The following morning, as Rey woke up, she somehow reached out through the Force to Kylo Ren. Startled, she fired her blaster at his location, punching a hole through the hut she was sleeping in. When Luke inquired about it, she lied that she misfired the weapon while cleaning it. As promised, Luke took Rey to a high outcropping for the first lesson. He explained the Force is more than being able to move objects and controlling the will of other people: it is the energy that binds both light and darkness and all living things together. He then instructed her to close her eyes and reach out through the Force. After some initial miscommunication, Rey succeeded and found herself drawn to a cavern filled with dark-side energy. Despite Luke's warning to resist the temptation, she failed, causing a frightened Luke to compare her Force awakening to Kylo Ren and leave the area. Later that day, Rey practiced with her quarterstaff on a rock overlooking the ocean. She then noticed the lightsaber and, putting away her quarterstaff, summoned the weapon to her hand and continued practicing, finally slicing the stone in half. Unbeknownst to her, Luke silently watched her from afar, unnerved by her sudden speed and increased ferocity.
During her training, Rey constantly found herself and Kylo Ren talking to each other through the Force, with the latter asking if Luke told her what happened to his old academy. After the second lesson, Luke then reveals to Rey why he chose to exile himself away from the galaxy: during Kylo's training, he had been warped by Snoke into falling to the dark side, forsaking his birth name of Ben Solo and destroying the Jedi temple. He laments that Kylo killed most of the other apprentices and took a handful with him, leaving Luke a broken man. Afterwards, Rey decided to travel to the dark side cavern and was quickly swept inside. She experienced another Force vision with multiple versions of herself, wondering once more about her place in the galaxy and the fate of her parents. That evening, Rey was contacted once again by Kylo; he told her his own side of the story, claiming Luke had tried to kill him while he was asleep. After failing to discover the identities of her own parents during her trials on Ahch-To, Rey confided in Ren about her feelings of loneliness and despair. Ren assured her that she was not alone; Rey returned his gesture in kind and reached out her hand. As Ren took it, Luke entered the hut to see Kylo as well, horrifying him and destroying the hut in anger. Rey, in turn, angrily attacked Luke with the latter disarming her, only for her to once more summon the lightsaber and demanding to know the truth. Luke confessed that he was prepared to kill Kylo, but hesitated, and by the time Luke realized that he had his lightsaber activated and over his nephew's body, Kylo was awake and the look in his eyes was a scared child, not of Snoke or the dark side.
Rey informed Luke that when she touched hands with Kylo, she could sense the massive conflict within him, much like Luke did with his father Darth Vader. Though Luke asserted that Kylo was beyond salvation, Rey believed that Ren could be turned back to the light and set out to face him alone; unbeknownst to Luke, Rey took the sacred Jedi texts with her aboard the Falcon. Upon returning to the beleaguered Resistance fleet, Rey ordered Chewbacca to launch her from an escape pod towards Snoke's ship, the Supremacy where Kylo was waiting for her and was subsequently taken into custody by stormtroopers.
As they approached Snoke's throne room, Rey reminded Kylo that he still had a chance to redeem himself. Snoke welcomed Rey and removed her handcuffs. He then Force-pulled her lightsaber to him and set it on the arm of his chair. Snoke gleefully remarked on the former scavenger and used the Force to pull her towards him, claiming he had created the Force link between Rey and Kylo in order to find Luke Skywalker. When Snoke directly pried her for Skywalker's location, Rey boldly refused and tried to summon her lightsaber; Instead, Snoke merely redirected the weapon, hitting her in the back of the head.
Amused with her spunk, Snoke brought her before a holo-projector showing the remaining members of the Resistance being destroyed, and vowed she would join them. Still defiant, Rey summoned Kylo's lightsaber and tried to engage her captor, only for Snoke to restrain her once more. After Snoke tortured her for information on Luke Skywalker's location, he returned Kylo's lightsaber to him and ordered him to kill the helpless Rey, confident his apprentice would do so. Instead, Kylo subtly used the Force to turn Rey's lightsaber and activated it, bisecting Snoke in two. Freed from the Supreme Leader's control and her saber back in hand, Rey suddenly found herself in a temporary truce with Ren as they engaged and killed all the guards in the throne room.
With Snoke's personal guards dead, Kylo offered Rey the chance to join him, but when she pleaded with him to join the Resistance, Kylo revealed the truth about her parents: they were both junk dealers who traded her away for money and died on Jakku, buried in an unmarked grave. Ren once more offered her a place by his side to reshape the galaxy in their image. As on Starkiller Base, Rey once again refused and attempted to pull her lightsaber back to her. The pressure of the Force from both users prove to be too much and split the weapon in two, knocking them unconscious. Coming to first, Rey recovered both halves of the lightsaber and managed to escape the ship.
Rey was able to reunite with Chewbacca aboard the Millennium Falcon and regrouped with the Rebels on the nearby planet Crait. They arrived right as the Resistance was taking heavy losses from the First Order's assault; with Rey manning the Falcon's turrets, Chewbacca was able to lure the attacking TIE Fighters away from the battle through the planet's crystallized caverns.
Despite Rey's successful diversion of the First Order's air support, the Resistance was still ultimately pushed back by the Order's sheer firepower. As Luke Skywalker delayed the First Order's final assault via a force projection, the Resistance sought to escape through a network of tunnels behind their base.
Following Leia's two-way beacon, Rey and Chewbacca landed near a back entrance to the old Rebel base covered with boulders. Trusting in the Force, she accepted her destiny as a Jedi and proceeded to clear the exit, allowing the surviving Resistance members to escape. As she was about to close the Falcon's doors once the Resistance was all aboard, she shared one more interaction through the Force with Kylo Ren; when Kylo reached out to her again, she promptly ignored him and left on the Falcon. Safely in hyperspace, Rey was warmly reunited with Leia, who assured her the rebellion, and hope, would survive.
GAME DESIGN NOTES:
Reys's Lightsaber skill improved dramatically since The Force Awakens, as she gets some training time with the weapon while on Ach-To, and therefor probably invests many character points into improving the skill. Even better if interpreting Luke Skywalker's presence for guidance and training, helping her to advance the skill very quickly in the short span of time that she was on Ach-To. She was then was able to hold her own alongside Kylo Ren against Snoke's Elite Praetorian Guard, though her ability with a lightsaber is still not as refined as that of Ren.
[NOTE: As of this write-up, I am aware of the controversy concerning Rey's use of a lightsaber during her first duel with Kylo Ren in The Force Awakens. My interpretation of this event, and how it feeds into this write-up, are as follows. Kylo Ren was injured once in his torso before/during his duel with Finn, which injured him and caused a Wound status (-1D), or possibly worse, perhaps even Mortally Wounded. He proceeded to punch this injury, because users of the Dark Side feed on things like pain and emotion, and this would have made his Force powers stronger at the time. Finn could have caused further injury, at least giving Ren a Stunn effect, before Finn was Mortally Wounded (though admittedly this is a stretch, but still a possibility). Kylo Ren, while fightng these opponents and seeming quite arrogant at the time, could also have not bothered to use his Lightsaber Combat Force Power. After all, Finn was an ex-stormtrooper, which hardly should have been a threat (but surprised him unexpectedly). And Rey would have seemed even less of a threat, a vagrant or fringer, scum of the galaxy, not even worth notice escept for the knowledge she possessed of the map leading to Luke Skywalker. This, combined with the very plausible explanation that all of his concentration in the Force at the time could have been used with other Force powers to minimize his injury, which could have been a Mortally Wounded status at worst, and Rey also possibly using a FOrce Point with the lightsaber at the time....all of this working in the same scene at the time could have explained Rey's victory over Kylo Ren, and her successful use of a lightsaber, a weapon that she had never picked up before.]
Her Melee Combat and Melee Parry skills are improved +1 pip because her staff is a weapon she is very familiar with, and even uses it while on Ach-To a few times before changing over to the lightsaber. It should also be noted that while the stats in this wrute-up are meant to respect those wrotten before to represent The Force Awakens, Rey's Melee Combat and Melee Parry skills could, perhaps should, have a spacialization for her staff. If this is done, reduce her main skills to 5D and her specialization skills in her staff to 6D+1. This would represent how she is obviously starting to favor the lightsaber over most other melee weapons, but still has a findness for the staff that has served her so well for so much of her life.
Rey is given the Persuasion skill due to ho often she is constantly trying to convince various people to help her or do the right thing, like Finn when they first meet, Luke when she meets him on Ach-To, and Kylo Ren when they have their minds linked and later after their short alliance on the Supremacy against Snoke's Elite Praetprian Guards.
Planetary Systems was improved +1 pip due to exposure to space travel. Instead of just reading or hearing about other worlds, she finally gets to travel in space and see these other worlds for herself. The skill isn't improved by much, as she was also raveling with other characters who had more reliable experience in such things, like Han Solo and Chewbacca, and even Finn during his time serving the First Order and traveling as a stormtrooper.
Her Survival skill is improved due to her exposure to more worlds since leaving Jakku, such as the jungle and ruins of Takodana, the freezing forest landscape of the surface of Starkiller Base, the vibrant and sunny conditions of the Resistance base on D'Qar, and finally the island environs of Ach-To. All of this grants Rey a much wider range of environments to get used to living in and roughing it when needed than the desert terrain of Jakku where she had lived her whole life before the events of The Force Awakens.
Climbing/Jumping was improved due to following Luke Skywalker constantly across Ach-To over some rough terrain while seeking his training as well as trying to convince him to leave the planet and joing thee Resistance in their fight against the First Order. Not to mention all the other times she has had to run, jump and move on the go in several emergencies since The Force Awakens.
Space Transports, Astrogation, and Starship Gunnery have been improved, again due to her exposure to space travel. If GMs/players wish, Space trabsports and Starship Gunnery could be specializations for the Millenium Falcon, as this is the ship she is currently most familiar with. Also, while she is improving in Space Transports, and Han Solo is no longer there to dly the ship, Chewbacca would stll be the better pilot, which explains why he flies the Falcon during thee Battle of Crait n The Last Jedi, and Rey is using the Quad Laser Cannons.
While Rey does not show much more in the way of Force Powers, her Force Skills show vast improvement directly due to having a Jedi master, Luke Skywalker, as a teacher, even if only for a brief period of time. While these improvements would be questionable in her fight against Snoke's Elite Praetorian Guard, it was enough for her to hold her own and improver her and Kylo Ren's odds against them. While Ren was probably the more experienced in Force use and lightsaber skill, he still would have been cut down the the Praetorians had Rey not been there to help woth her own abilities.
