Description: Rey Skywalker was a Force-sensitive human female who, after years of living as a scavenger, became a Jedi during the war between the First Order and the Resistance. Unaware of her lineage as the granddaughter of Emperor Sheev Palpatine, Rey was the only name she went by prior to assuming the Skywalker surname. Rey ultimately chose the Jedi path, despite inheriting her strength in the Force from a Dark Lord of the Sith. She also formed a unique bond with Supreme Leader Kylo Ren. Notwithstanding their adversarial relationship, Rey and Ren were the realization of a prophesied dyad in the Force.
Born in 15 ABY during the New Republic Era, Rey's parents left her on the planet Jakku in hopes of keeping her safe from the Emperor. Though Rey longed to be reunited with her mother and father, she learned to survive on her own. Toughened by her travails in the deserts of her homeworld, Rey became a skilled mechanic, pilot, and combatant during her time as a scavenger. Her isolation ended in 34 ABY as the cold war gave way to open conflict throughout the galaxy. Having sided with the Resistance, Rey formed new friendships with Finn, a renegade stormtrooper, as well as the veterans Han Solo and Chewbacca, drawing her deeper into the galactic war that ensued from the destruction of the New Republic. In the course of her journey Rey located the legendary Jedi Master Luke Skywalker who, despite his self-imposed exile on Ahch-To, trained her in the ways of the Jedi Order. After Skywalker sacrificed his life to save the Resistance, Rey assumed his mantle as the last Jedi and became the apprentice of General Leia Organa.
With the return of Darth Sidious, the Sith Lord known to the galaxy as Emperor Palpatine, Rey set out to find the dark world of Exegol and prevent the Sith from being reborn. It was through Ren that Rey discovered her origins as the Emperor's granddaughter, and upon confronting Sidious in person, she was nearly swayed to the dark side of the Force. Rey was saved, however, by a redeemed Ben Solo, who ultimately renounced the dark persona of Kylo Ren. Aided by the spirits of all the Jedi, Rey died vanquishing her dark grandfather, causing Solo to make the ultimate sacrifice in order to bring Rey back to life. The two embraced and shared a kiss as Solo died peacefully in Rey's arms. Although Solo's death ended the Skywalker bloodline, Rey assumed the Skywalker surname to honor the family's legacy.
Personality and traits
Rey was a human female who stood at 1.7 meters and weighed 54 kilograms. She had brown hair, hazel eyes, and light skin that adapted to the extreme ultraviolet radiation emanated by the sun that shone down on the desert world of Jakku. The harsh realities of such a world could have easily made a person cynical or guarded against sympathy and weaknesses, but not Rey. Despite eking out a meager existence in the scorching heat of the Western Reaches planet, Rey possessed a heart full of generosity and a willingness to help other people in need. It was this willingness that led her to not only help BB-8 be free of Teedo's interference and Plutt's attempts to acquire the droid but also led her to help BB-8 in its mission to return the star map it carried to the Resistance. Though she never wanted to leave Jakku for fear that she would not be there when her family returned for her, she believed in the importance of the Resistance and its fight against the First Order enough that it gave her strength to continue on BB-8's mission to find Luke Skywalker and defeat the First Order. She also believed in the importance of the Jedi Order; in spite of Skywalker's jaded views and rejection of his Jedi heritage, Rey remained steadfast in her belief that the return of the Jedi was paramount to defeating the First Order. Notably, her courage and utter refusal to concede to despair made her the only Jedi to earn Snoke's respect as a worthy adversary.
For years, Rey's imagination took her mind to other worlds, including those with lush green forests and beauty that she could never even dream of. The adventure she found while helping BB-8 and Finn brought her to one such world in the form of Takodana, where she began to realize that her destiny was not in the junkfields of a remote desert planet. Her encounter with Maz Kanata profoundly impacted how she saw herself and what she was capable of, and Rey began to see that she was part of a larger galactic fightâ€”and that the power of the Force was with her. Her recognition of these abilities and her destiny coincided with turbulence in the Cosmic Force, which for years had remained dormant, and ultimately led her to find Skywalker. The years that she spent on Jakku also proved useful when faced with Skywalker's obstinacy; having learned the value of patience, Rey remained on Ahch-To despite the old Jedi Master's refusal of her entreaty, determined to wear him down.
Though optimistic and hopeful, Rey spent years living in denial about her parents until Kylo Ren forced her to confront the truth. Rey tearfully admitted that her parents were no one special, merely junk traders who sold their daughter in order to satisfy their alcoholism. She had hoped to learn more about her parents during her visit to Ahch-To but was left with feelings of disappointment and even greater loneliness than before. She also felt abandoned by Skywalker, and therefore confided in Ren, whom she assured was not alone. Her feelings toward Ren gradually changed due to the bond they shared in the Force. At first, Ren's presence incited anger within Rey, who mourned Han Solo as the father she never had.
As their connection grew stronger, Rey was surprised by how open Ren was with his emotions and became driven to learn the truth about his fall from grace. Whereas she initially dismissed Ren as a failed student, Rey came to see Skywalker as a failure for losing faith in his nephew. Trusting in the Force, Rey firmly believed that Ren would turn from the dark side with her help, having perceived a glimmer of good within the conflicted Knight of Ren.
By then Rey had grown to care about Ben Solo, but he had disappointed her by choosing to remain on the dark path. Moreover, she came to believe that Ren only wanted her to be like him, the thought of which caused her pain as she thought he could be turned back to the light with her help. Rationally, Rey knew that Solo was entrenched in the persona of Ren, and only Solo could save himself regardless of what anyone else wanted for him. Nevertheless, Rey held out hope for him. In the immediate aftermath of the Battle of Crait, when they connected with each other once more through their Force-bond, Rey no longer felt hatred or compassion for the self-proclaimed Supreme Leader, but now she believed that Kylo Ren was nothing more than a shell for his true self: Ben Solo.
Rey, who learned from Han Solo that the legends of the Force were true, was deeply spiritual. She believed in the existence of the Force, but her knowledge of it was lacking due to her limited exposure to its powers. As her training progressed under Skywalker, Rey began to see the Force as something more than the abilities it granted to Force-sensitive individuals. She agreed with Skywalker that the Force was the balance between opposite conceptsâ€”such as life and death, creation and destruction, or light and darknessâ€”though she continued to disagree with her master's intention to end the Jedi Order. It was her faith in the Force that led Rey to confront Ren in person. She initially felt vindicated by Ren's betrayal of Snoke, exulting at the way he saved her by striking down his own master, yet was shocked by his resolve to continue down the dark path, having felt certain that Ren's redemption was the will of the Force. Nevertheless, she refrained from killing him while he was unconscious, in spite of her own inclination to take his life while he was defenseless. To Rey, it was the Force's will that Ren continued to live, though for what purpose she did not know. As such, Rey adopted a "wait and see" approach regarding the Force's plans for Ren.
During Rey's time on Ahch-To, Skywalker felt that she reminded him too much of himself: full of hope, impatient and reckless. Snoke preyed on those attributes, knowing that Rey could not "resist the bait" he had laid before her.
Powers and abilities
Rey honed her skills as a scavenger in the junkfields of Jakku, a planet on which every day was a struggle to survive against harsh sunlight, searing hot deserts, and cutthroat scavengers and thieves who would steal from anyone. This bleak reality, in which she nonetheless remained ever-hopeful, saw Rey develop a tenacity and instinct for survival. Her skills as a scavenger saw her earn the respect of junk traders like Plutt, who ensured that his thugs did not steal from herâ€”unless her skills got in the way of his business. The need to survive against such beings, and the ability to traverse downed star cruisers and other war technology, necessitated that she remain in peak physical condition. She developed skills as a warrior, with the ability to expertly wield a quarterstaff against those who would threaten her. Her interactions with offworlders also allowed her to learn languages from other worlds, such as the Wookiee language of Shyriiwook and the binary language of droids. She also had a certain talent for drawing, which she put to good use in her journal.
In her time on Jakku, Rey learned the ins-and-outs of being a mechanic, and she was gifted with a seemingly innate understanding of how machinery worked. This left her comfortable around vehicles and weapons, including the AT-AT she called home; she kept the weatherproofing of the downed transport intact to protect against the climate, and she set traps around it so scavengers could not steal from her. She built her own speeder and became a skilled pilot, despite never wanting to leave Jakku. These skills proved ever-useful when she piloted the Millennium Falcon away from Jakku, and she displayed an understanding of its systems and functions with a familiarity that rivaled even that of Han Solo. Chewbacca also recognized these abilities, giving her the pilot's seat in the Millennium Falcon after Solo died and the two set off to find Skywalker.
All of these skills and more were put to the test when she left Jakku with BB-8 and Finn. Rey was forced to pilot the Millennium Falcon through the Starship Graveyard, in which she formed a working partnership with Finn when the former stormtrooper manned the gun turrets of the old Corellian vessel, and further helped Solo repair the Falcon when it was damaged. Her ability to understand languages not commonly found on Jakku came in handy when helping BB-8 with its mission, as well as through interactions with Chewbacca.
The bond between Rey and Ren reached an unprecedented level of strength as their connections became more frequent.
The adventure that followed her leaving Jakku led Rey to discover that she was gifted with the powers of the Force. Though she initially rejected these powers and the destiny that came with them, Rey's encounter with Skywalker's lightsaber began awakening the power of the Force inside of her. She resisted Kylo Ren's attempt to probe her mind for the map to Skywalker and even turned his attack back on him to discover his own fears of inadequacy in the shadow of Darth Vader. Because of this, Ren concluded that Rey was strong with the Force; untaught, but stronger than she realized.
As a side effect of that mind probe, Rey inadvertently unlocked some of her dormant Force abilities by accessing memories of Ren's training which, in turn, served as her own training in the ways of the Force. She was, therefore, able to employ the mind trick, albeit only after three attempts, against a stormtrooper in order to escape from captivity, and her skills grew throughout her escape from the Starkiller. On one occasion, she was able to summon Skywalker's lightsaber to her hand and make it fling itself past Kylo. This culminated in her lightsaber duel with the injured Ren, as she was able to repel his attacks and best him in their fierce encounter, destroying his lightsaber; however, she had been only able to achieve this due to Ren's imbalance.
Thereafter, Rey embraced these events and the abilities she was just beginning to learn when she sought out the exiled Skywalker, rekindling a spark of hope for a galaxy on the road to war. After her training on Ahch-To, Rey proved capable of lifting and moving several boulders simultaneously with a mere amount of concentration to open a passageway for the Resistance on Crait, and could also access the Force-bond forged by Snoke to communicate with Ben Solo seemingly at will. According to Snoke, she grew more powerful in the light side of the Force as Ben grew stronger in the dark side. According to Luke Skywalker, Ren was far more powerful than Rey, but Rey's powers were quickly growing. In the few days since the Battle of Starkiller Base, she progressed from needing to attempt the mind trick several times before succeeding, to moving dozens of heavy rocks at once and she was able to match Ren in a Force-wrestle for a lightsaber. Despite her growing powers, she was unable to fight Snoke's mind probe, though she previously resisted his apprentice Ren's. Due to being a Palpatine, she was inherently stronger in the dark side of the Force.
Despite her lack of proper training, Rey proved a natural in lightsaber combat, albeit neither as seasoned nor as versatile as Kylo Ren, as shown when even she had trained for a year, she was still bested by Ren on the wreckage of Death Star with him easily dodging her attacks and after a long and intense duel, knocked her on the ground and disarmed her following a number of ferocious attacks and would have killed her had he not been distracted by his mother calling him through the Force. She had much difficulty in fighting Snoke's Praetorian Guard, one of whom managed to wound her in the right shoulder, but she still managed to hold off all eight of them at once with Ren's aid.
Rey later discovered her power was inherited from her grandfather, Darth Sidious. On one occasion Rey used Force lightning after being pushed by Kylo Ren when she attempted to stop a First Order transport she believed was carrying Chewbacca. Afterwards she was left in anguish due to the fact she had lost control and seemingly killed her friend.
Following a year of training under Organa, Rey's light side powers were more refined. Using the Force, she was able to heal Kylo of a mortal wound. Rey's lightsaber skills had vastly improved as well to the point that, bolstered by the strength of all the Jedi, she was able to block Palpatine's Force lightning with Leia Organa's lightsaber. By combining Leia's lightsaber with the Skywalker lightsaber, Rey managed to reflect Palpatine's Force lightning back onto him in order to disintegrate Palpatine, destroying his throne and collapsing the chamber they were in on top of the cultists of the Sith Eternal.
Hellhound Two and the speeder
Rey made her home in the downed remains of an All Terrain Armored Transport called Hellhound Two, a leftover from the Battle of Jakku. After claiming it as her own, Rey made a number of modifications to the AT-AT. She disabled the fuel tank, as it was too dangerous to keep online, and welded the main hatch shut. As an entrance and exit, she used a side hatch that Imperial stormtroopers only would have used in emergencies. In order to operate the solar panels that Rey used to power her home, she salvaged two self-charging fuel cells from the wreckage of speeder bikes in the vehicle bay. Many of the materials also proved useful for salvage; E-11 blaster rifles, DLT-20A laser rifles, terrain scanners, atmosphere intakes, and more were all materials she was able to trade to Unkar Plutt.
While in the walker, Rey generally stayed inside the lower troop deck, though there was a speeder bike garage and upper troop deck in the walker. Despite Hellhound Two laying on its side, Rey came to think of it as right side up after getting so used to it. Inside she had a workbench for working on salvage material, her computer terminal, and a hammock that she made herself when she was a girl. Being inside the walker gave her a degree of protection as well. Not only did Rey maintain the vehicle's weatherproofing, thereby keeping the daytime heat and frigid nights out of the craft, but she also set up traps around the walker in order to keep scavengers out of her home.
Although the AT-AT was her home, Rey's speeder was more important for her survival. Rey took great pride and joy from her speeder, a custom-built repulsorlift vehicle. It stood at 3.73 meters in length and carried no weapons, but its hauling capability, and the net used as a cargo bag on the side of the craft, allowed her to ferry items she salvaged from the Starship Graveyard to her AT-AT and Niima Outpost. Despite its ability to haul cargo, its space was limited; the craft valued speed over cargo capacity, so Rey often had to make return trips to carry her salvage into Niima Outpost. The craft was top heavy, making it difficult for other pilots to control it, but Rey was a skilled enough pilot to manage it. Its top heavy nature made her more confident that other scavengers would not steal it, as did her safety precautions: a fingerprint scanner that meant only she could power the speeder's engines, and a loose wire that she used to electrify the craft when she was not using it in the event that someone tried to hotwire the speeder.
The speeder itself was built from supplies that Rey scavenged from the deserts. It was powered by twin turbojet engines she claimed from a downed cargo-hauler, which she mounted stacked rather than placing them side-by-side. She bolted them to powered amplifiers that she scavenged from an Imperial vessel. It was further customized with racing-swoop afterburners, a customized combustion chamber, and repulsorlifts she scavenged from crashed X-wing starfighters, amongst many other modifications she made. When carrying a limited load, the speeder was even powerful enough to accelerate to the point that it could fly like an airspeeder. Rey enjoyed using the craft to hone her piloting abilities, sometimes taking it out for flights and performing maneuvers like barrel rolls. The speeder's capabilities, as well as its necessity for survival, gave Rey a sense of independence. Although no one could be truly free and independent on Jakku, due to scavengers being dependent on Unkar Plutt for food, the speeder at least meant that Rey could go wherever she wanted whenever she wanted.
Tools and weapons
Being a scavenger required many types of tools and gear necessary to survive. Rey's scavenger clothing was ideal for protecting herself from the heat and carrying the tools she needed to do her job. She wore tight-bindings to keep out the sun and sand as well as salvaged gauze wrappings. She even wore her hair in a simple style designed specifically for survival in the desert. Her boots were made for travelers and were created out of Govath-wool. Part of her gear included goggles from stormtrooper helmet lenses that Rey salvaged from a ship. Water was an essential part of a scavenger's life, and many scavengers forgot that the heat was their worst enemy. Rey always carried more water with her than she needed to and carried replacement parts for all of the critical components on her speeder.
To be as successful a scavenger as Rey meant acquiring the best tools she could, learning how to use them, and always maintaining them. She carried her tools in a mesh-windowed salvage satchel that contained her salvages and survival equipment. Tools she kept in the satchel included a set of Pilex bit drivers with Wessex and Blissex heads; modulators that included Mon Calamari hex-clamps and cruciform Verpine ratchets; all eight standard configurations of hydrospanners, including spare power cells; magnetizers and demagnetizers; a carbon chisel for removing scorching on her salvages; a chisel head hammer; harris wrenches, including two that were powered and one that came in the standard model; bonding tape; a power tester; microlenses for inspecting parts to see if there were breaks or cracks too small for the eye to see; a sensor jammer to ensure that memory units and computers were properly decoupled, lest their data be purged after being unhooked with authorization; and a datapad that contained schematics of ships from the Starship Graveyard. Rey also carried a salvage kit, made from happabore leather, with brushes for cleaning the parts she acquired.
One of the most important items Rey carried was her quarterstaff, which she salvaged herself and wrapped with scraps of uniform. She kept the staff strapped to her person with a strap made from wool and bloggin-leather. The staff was an important tool for traversing downed ships. Because it was so dark inside the unpowered vessels, it was not unheard of to be injured by jagged metal or falling through brittle hull plating. Rey used her staff to check that every step she took was stable, particularly in a ship she had never been in before. She also used the quarterstaff in combat if necessary, which required her to keep a firm back arm grip in order to power any sudden swings. While using it she remained standing in a lower defensive position, and she was practiced with skilled and agile footwork. Rey also had a small knife created out of a droid arm.
After Rey left Jakku and arrived on Takodana, she was given an NN-14 blaster pistol from Han Solo. The pistol was small, befitting her own size. It had an armored body shell, flash-suppressing and stabilizing muzzle, and a compact grip that was suited for her small hands. Though it was small, its enlarged power core and reinforced frame meant that it was a sturdy weapon that delivered a powerful blast onto any enemies. In Maz Kanata's castle, Rey also learned that Skywalker's lightsaber was destined for her, as the Force beckoned her to claim it. The lightsaber was built by Anakin Skywalker during the Clone Wars and, after it was lost to Luke Skywalker during a duel with his father, it was salvaged from the depths of Cloud City. Rey finally claimed the lightsaber during her duel with Kylo Ren, and she carried it with her to Ahch-To so she could present it to Luke Skywalker himself.
