Rey is one of the main protagonists of Star Wars: The Force Awakens.
Rey was orphaned on Jakku at an early age. Her parentage and planet of origin have not been revealed.
Rey is optimistic and self-reliant, but when first confronted by the possibility that she had an affinity for the Force, she was terrified. She seems to have accepted the calling after some thought.
Growing up on Jakku, Rey learned to fight with a staff, and she typically carries a metal staff. She received a hand blaster from Han Solo, but presumably lost it when captured by the First Order. She also received a lightsaber that previously belonged to Anakin Skywalker and Luke Skywalker.
