R2-D2 and C-3PO, astromech and protocol droid, played a significant role in the Clone Wars and the Galactic Civil War.

Droids (sometimes also 'droids, short for androids), were robots: mechanical beings, often possessing artificial intelligence. They were used in a variety of roles and environments, often those considered too menial or too dangerous for humans and other species. Droids were also used in fields that required extensive specialization and knowledge, such as a Medical Droid and an Astromech Droid.

Background Edit

Droids were mechanical beings that possessed artificial intelligence. Contrary to living organisms, who were born and healed slowly, droids were built and could be repaired easily. They did not have to learn skills, as they were directly programmed with them. They were unable to sense the Force. They also did not need to sleep, although they had occasional maintenance cycles.

Droids were used in a variety of roles and environments, often those considered too menial or too dangerous for other species. Droids were also used in fields that required extensive specialization and knowledge, such as a Protocol Droid and an Astromech Droid. Droids were usually completely obedient and precise, and normally followed their masters orders. Some droids served as bounty hunters, operating independently and without a master. Other droids were created for military use, such as battle droids that were used by the Trade Federation and the Confederacy of Independent Systems.
