Star Wars Prequels Character Speculated to be Rey’s Grandmother

Star Wars: The Last Jedi might have revealed Rey (Daisy Ridley) to be the daughter of two drunken junkers, however, Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker retconned Rey's simple origin story, turning her into the granddaughter of Emperor Palpatine.

But what about her grandmother? In Episode IX, fans learn that Rey is the child of a failed clone of Palpatine and an unnamed woman played by Jodie Comer. Who exactly are Rey's grandparents on her mother's side?

According to Inverse,Star Wars fans might find the answer in a character called Sly Moore in the prequel trilogy.

Sly is seen in short moments in a few prequel movies like Star Wars: Attack of the Clones and Star Wars: Revenge of the Sith. Though she's only seen in glimpses, Sly arrests attention as she keeps by Palpatine's side. It's hard not to miss her with her bald head and her Umbaran cloak.

Though there isn't that much information about Sly, it's possible that the character was one of the few people who knew about Palpatine's identity as Darth Sidious. After all, she is Palpatine's staff add, a character who controls who gets access to the Chancellor.

Described as a Force-sensitive character, we can imagine Sly helping Palpatine creates a clone of himself with Force sensitivity. Perhaps Sly tried to do the same, ending up with the mother of Rey that we get to see in The Rise of Skywalker.

What do you think? Could Sly be Rey's grandmother? Feel free to share your thoughts in the comment section below.
