Isolated, naive farm boy yearning to get away from home and join in the adventures he romanticizes because of his father
Frustrated, somewhat whiny
Gets beaten by Tusken Raiders, saved by Kenobi
Gets pushed around in bar, treated like a wimp, saved by Kenobi
Surprised by more worldly guys like Han Solo
"Aren't you a little short for a Storm Trooper?" damn
Impulsive. Has to be told to "run, Luke, run" by Kenobi, saving him again
In the end, rises above his flaws by relying on the greater force
Not a Mary Sue
Isolated, but shows determination and independence, takes care of herself, seen as capable right away
Saves BB-8, saves Finn, flies the Falcon, endures Rylo Ken's mind probing
In the end learns...? I guess that she's even stronger than she knew. Doesn't have to learn to let go or rely on the greater force. Just has to be her awesome self.
Feminist hero because she doesn't have to change, just be.
