Rey knows that she doesn't fit the mold of a typical girl, and compared to the life Leia lived as the princess to Alderaan— a far away place that the general herself speaks about with a faraway look in her eyes— she's no princess or damsel. But she's heard stories, especially the ones that Poe's mother used to tell him, about brave knights and saviours of kingdoms and nations all battling a horrid evil to save whomever the hero has set their hearts upon. That's what Rey thinks she is, a knight, and she wants to be able to help and save whoever she can.
