Rey is a Jakku scavenger, abandoned as a child by her family on the desert planet for reasons unknown to her. She learned her trade from fellow scavengers in the employ of junk boss Unkar Plutt and taught herself how to read starship schematics, speak several languages and fly on a flight simulator using a computer she managed to salvage. In spite of the harshness of her upbringing and her surroundings, she has never lost her sense of compassion and wonder nor the hope that her family would return to her. When a Resistance droid carrying the map to legendary hero Luke Skywalker appeals to her help, Rey answers the call and finds herself drawn into a galaxy-spanning conflict. She learns she is more than just "no one". She has a greater destiny shaped by the Force.
