At the heart of Canto Bight sits the Canto Casino and Racetrack. A fathier racetrack occupies the center of the complex, surrounded by game rooms, restaurants, cabarets and luxury hotels. Fortunes in Cantocoins are won and lost nightly at the casino, a place of soaring dreams and crashing disappointments.
Canto Bight’s uniformed police keep the peace in the resort city, and are trained to avoid messy public disruptions and unnecessary violence. Visitors who step out of line are incapacitated with stun blasts and hauled off to jail. Those attempting to evade justice are hunted down by lightweight, highly mobile police speeders.
FN-2187 was trained since birth to serve the First Order as a stormtrooper, but a skirmish on Jakku awakened his conscience and drove him down a different path, one that proved both heroic and dangerous. He helped Poe Dameron escape the First Order – picking up the nickname Finn in doing so – and then sought his own freedom alongside Rey and BB-8. Finn helped the Resistance destroy Starkiller Base, but had to decide his true loyalties: Would he continue to fight alongside the Resistance’s soldiers, or seek to reunite with Rey and flee the galactic conflict?
A skittish but loyal astromech, BB-8 accompanied Poe Dameron on many missions for the Resistance, helping keep his X-wing in working order. When Poe’s mission to Jakku ended with his capture by the First Order, BB-8 fled into the desert with a vital clue to the location of Jedi Master Luke Skywalker. He rejoined Poe and the service of the Resistance in time for the attack on Starkiller Base, then helped Rey locate Skywalker’s planet of exile.
