Luke Skywalker was a Tatooine farmboy who rose from humble beginnings to become one of the greatest Jedi the galaxy has ever known. Along with his friends Princess Leia and Han Solo, Luke battled the evil Empire, discovered the truth of his parentage, and ended the tyranny of the Sith. A generation later, the location of the famed Jedi master was one of the galaxy’s greatest mysteries.
Rey is a Jakku scavenger, a survivor toughened by life on a harsh desert planet. When the fugitive droid BB-8 appeals to her for help, Rey finds herself drawn into a galaxy-spanning conflict. Despite dismissing herself as “no one,” she learns that her life is being shaped by the mysterious power of the Force. She seeks out Luke Skywalker, the lost Jedi Master, in hopes that he will aid the Resistance against the First Order and help her learn to control her powers.
Alcida-Auka is the matron of the Caretakers on Ahch-To’s sacred island, and oversees their maintenance of the island’s structures, a religious duty that has fallen to them for eons. Alcida-Auka refers to the other Caretakers as her “daughters” and instructs them in their proper duties. While she has accepted Luke Skywalker as a seeker of truth, she has doubts about his reckless new apprentice.
An enclave of females from the Lanai species, the Caretakers dwell on Ahch-To’s sacred island, and consider it their religious duty to maintain its ancient structures and care for any seekers of truth drawn to their lonely planet. Male Lanais spend most of their time at sea, returning for monthly celebrations.
An uncharted world located deep in the galaxy’s Unknown Regions, Ahch-To is the world where the Jedi Order was founded, and its sacred island is the site of the first Jedi Temple. Luke Skywalker discovered the lost world after a long search, and chose it as his place of exile – only to have Rey find her way to his lonely island.
