Rey (Star Wars)
Rey is a female character who features in Star Wars.
Rey Palpatine was the human daughter of a human woman and a man that was the son of Emperor Palpatine. Her father and mother went on the run from the Galactic Empire many years ago until after the Battle of Endor. In that time, the Emperor had actually survived the destruction of the Death Star II with him escaping to the hidden Sith world of Exegol. Once there, he re-established his powerbase in secret and dispatched one of his cultists named Ochi to track down his son with the intention of bringing his granddaughter to him. At the time, Rey was with her parents on the desert world of Jakku where they seemingly sold her into slavery though this was done to protect her as they knew that an assassin was tracking them down. They were taken aboard Ochi's ship that departed Jakku where he killed them but failed to find Rey. Meanwhile, Rey remained on the planet where she believed that her parents would one day return for her.
She continued her training where she attempted to perfect her Force control by hearing all the Jedi that came before her. This meant that she was not able to participate in Resistance operations against the First Order who maintained their control over the galaxy. During one of her training sessions, she received a dark vision of the future that caused her to fail her session. It was then that Finn and Poe arrived with dire news from the spy within the First Order. They revealed that Emperor Palpatine had survived the destruction of the second Death Star and had escaped to the Exegol where he built up his powerbase that included a mighty fleet called the Final Order. This force was allying with Supreme Leader Ren's First Order and were posed to take over the galaxy. Rey recalled from Luke Skywalker's journal about his own search for Exegol and decided to end her training in order to aid the Resistance in stopping Palpatine.
