Daisy Ridley (Disney Infinity 3.0, Lego Star Wars: The Force Awakens)|
Helen Sadler (Lego Star Wars: The Resistance Rises)
She first appeared as one of the lead characters in Star Wars: The Force Awakens. Rey is a scavenger who was left behind (for protection) on the planet Jakku when she was a child, and soon becomes involved with the Resistance's conflict with the First Order after meeting Finn, a former Stormtrooper, and BB-8, the droid of ace Resistance pilot Poe Dameron.
Although her background is unknown, her last name was not said as a decision by J. J. Abrams. This led to fan theories by saying that she is the daughter of Han Solo, Princess Leia or Luke Skywalker or even Obi-Wan Kenobi's granddaughter.
