Dark Side Rey (aka Daddy issues) by BlackHawk45LC Dark Side Rey (aka Daddy issues) by BlackHawk45LC
I couldn't help but notice the tendency toward savagery Rey showed throughout the film, and when you add in the many parallels I noticed with Knights of the Old Republic's Bastilla... I expect Rey to struggle with the Dark Side some.  So that led me to imagine what she may look like if she fell.

Glad to know I was not the only one who felt Rey had a savage aspect to her.  That seems to have been tempered a little bit in TLJ, but I do suspect she will have a different perspective on Light and Dark than the Jedi (or the Sith for that matter).

Or at least THINK her perspective is different.

She looks a lot like a Sith Inquisitor.

Her right eye kind of looks a Rinnegan.

Not really familiar with Naruto (had to google to see who rinnegan was), but thats cool i guess. I was going for an electronic replacement for an eye now missing.

All struggle against the Dark Side.   That is human nature.  To give into it though... That's when the shit hits the fan.   

Though I suspect Rey to struggle against it in the future films as well.. Just as Luke and Anakin did.   Whether she falls to the Dark Side though.  Guess we'll have to wait till Ep 9 for that.

There seems to be so much borrowed from Knight of the Old Republic.  See looks just like Bastila to me, and KOTR spoiler alert (she falls and Darth Revan ((who looks exactly like Kylo)) comes to the light, and saves her)  Totally wouldn't surprise me if she falls and comes back.  

Things that really stand out are: (Force Awakening Spoilers ahead)
How mad she got when she was going after Finn (after bb8 told her about the jackets owner).

When she finally got the upper hand in her duel with Kylo, she was slamming her light saber down repeatedly onto Kylo's, just like how Luke slammed his down on Vader's when he was being pulled toward the dark by the Emperor. 

Also when she defeats Kylo at the end, she is pacing around him in a fashion very similar to how D.Maul paced when the energy doors kept him from fighting Obi-Wan.

It's possible that she'll find a balance between the light and dark and become gray. She did seem to have a bit a darkness in her and maybe she'll use that to her advantage. She doesn't seem to be completely light nor completely dark either. It would be interesting to have a gray force-user or Jedi who doesn't follow the typical Jedi Code in many ways (I think a lot of the Jedi Code is unhealthy for humans). She might be able to bring Kylo into that balance as well. If she's Luke's daughter than it explain her anger and darker side because both Anakin and Leia were known for their tempers and preference for violence rather than peace and diplomacy (like Padme and Luke.) I really like her fiery attitude and how she isn't really a Jedi or Sith and I hope that doesn't change.

Aggression is something Luke will have to help her learn to control.  She MAY have had training as a young child, or if that isn't the case, she let the Force into her and that gave enhanced agility and precognition for a short time.  A burst of strength so to speak.   Like an Adrenalin rush.   She's a complete novice to the ways of the Force also.  If she does have a fall or comes close to the edge.  That would be interesting, but then who to pull her back away or out of it?  

But I feel that during Episode VIII, Luke will teach her a lot of how the Jedi control and manage their feelings to keep from going completely Dark Side.  Like he came so close to before.  

BTW, Huge SW fan.   LOL   Seen Force Awakens in IMAX 3D opening night, then 4 more times since then.  And beaten KotR at least 5 to 8 times over the years.   Love that game.

I've heard rumor of a complete KOTOR remaster.  Bioware rumors run rampant, but we can hope.

I heard something about that just yesterday in fact.   Would LOVE it to be true.  Could be even since they are actually re-mastering Final Fantasy VII after all the years of rumors and false hopes being given.

I kinda have a gut feeling it will... think of how mad she got when bb8 told her fin stole the jacket... and when she began winning the saber fight, she was slamming hers down again and again just like when the emperor was tempting luke. Also when ren was knocked down at one point she was paceing around him sort of like darth maul paced when the energy doors interupted the quigon fight.

I have a pet theory that the writers are taking inspiration for her from Darth Zannah: she uses mostly defensive combat, a polearm, she's an orphan with unusually strong grasp of the Force for a newbie, and her main powers so far seem to be psychic (resisting mind reading and using mind tricks without moving her hands). The fact her name is Rey (a bit like Rain) is also fun. I'd love if she went Sith and ended up being even more Zannah-like (driving people insane and crushing people's organs, etc.), haha. She definitely seems closer to the Dark Side at this point: she was totally about to murder Kylo until the planet split them apart. She seems to be in many ways a mix of Anakin and Zannah, imo

Yeah i cohld see that, but visually she is very bastilla like. And kylo looks exactly like revan. KoTOR spoilers ahead: If you play it light side, bastilla goes dark, while revan becomes light, and revan ultimately saves bastilla from the dark, and they together take on malak and company.

I'd forgotten about that! Makes me suspect Rey will go Dark Side even more, haha. I suspect they wouldn't copy the KOTOR plot exactly, so it'll be interesting to see what they do. That is a very cool parallel though. I'd still really like to see a Zannah-ish Rey, haha

I know, right? Haha
For a while I thought maybe Rey's staff was a lightsaber, but Daisy has said it isn't. I still think the design might be supposed to subtly suggest a lightsaber (possibly a double-blades saberstaff, which would fit my Zannah hypothesis). Or heck, maybe she'll use it as the exterior of a lightsaber. Idk
