EPISODE IX: A FAMILY PURSUED...

Dathan and Miramir - fugitives from the Emperor!

Seemingly abandoned by uncaring parents whom Kylo Ren would later describe to her as filthy junk traders who literally sold her off for drinking money, Rey ultimately discovers the truth about her parentage, and the real reason for her being left behind on the desert world of Jakku, by the time of The Rise of Skywalker. In actuality, her parents were to prove unique in the sequel saga backstory, her father Dathan (Billy Howe) being the fugitive son of Emperor Palpatine himself, whilst her mother Miramir (played by Killing Eve's soon British superstar Jodie Comer) proved herself brave and courageous to the end in protecting her daughter-in-hiding, successfully fooling the Sith Assassin who would ultimately slay Rey's parents...

Miramir (Jodie Comer) cradles her daughter one last time.
