Who’s the main character?
The main character is a young woman named Rey. At the start of Episode 7, she’s a scavenger who barely manages to survive by selling parts from old Imperial ships, with her parents having abandoned her as a little girl. However, once she meets the black stormtrooper I mentioned, her adventure begins. Rey’s character arc is essentially one of finding a family: the connections she forms with the other heroes, especially the surviving Skywalkers, help her fill the void left by her parents’ abandonment.
My preferred Skywalker Saga experience:
I II III IV V VI VII VIII IX
