The one thing that's probably on everyone's mind when they saw Rise of Skywalker was how Emperor Palpatine was still alive? We last saw him plummeting to his death down the Death Star shaft in Return of the Jedi and it even exploded. Well, as the Emperor has it, the dark side is a path to many unnatural abilities. A big revelation in the novelization was that The Rise of Skywalker's Palpatine is a clone of the emperor. Palpatine's real body was destroyed and that clone houses his actual spirit. He knew the clone had a limited shelf life that's why he wanted to transfer his essence to a new body - either Rey or Kylo Ren's.
