THE DARK TIMES
A 2-1B served on the rebel command ship and treated Hera, Phoenix leader and pilot of the Ghost, for critical injuries sustained in battle against Fenn Rau. Thanks to the droid’s efforts, Hera survived, making a full recovery.
Discovered as a slave on Tatooine by Qui-Gon Jinn and Obi-Wan Kenobi, Anakin Skywalker had the potential to become one of the most powerful Jedi ever, and was believed by some to be the prophesied Chosen One who would bring balance to the Force. A hero of the Clone Wars, Anakin was caring and compassionate, but also had a fear of loss that would prove to be his downfall.
Luke Skywalker was a Tatooine farmboy who rose from humble beginnings to become one of the greatest Jedi the galaxy has ever known. Along with his friends Princess Leia and Han Solo, Luke battled the evil Empire, discovered the truth of his parentage, and ended the tyranny of the Sith. A generation later, the location of the famed Jedi master was one of the galaxy’s greatest mysteries.
Scheming, powerful, and evil to the core, Darth Sidious restored the Sith and destroyed the Jedi Order. Living a double life, Sidious was in fact Palpatine, a Naboo Senator and phantom menace. He slowly manipulated the political system of the Galactic Republic until he was named Supreme Chancellor -- and eventually Emperor -- ruling the galaxy through fear and tyranny.
Cylindrical droids with multiple arms, FX medical droids assist other models, such as 2-1B surgical models, in surgical centers and on battlefields. FX-6 models monitor patients, perform tests, operate equipment and review medical procedures and techniques. An FX-6 droid supplied Darth Vader with a blood transfusion after the former Jedi’s crippling injuries on Mustafar and helped affix cybernetic legs to the flesh-and-blood stumps.
Protocol droids are vital in smoothing differences encountered by the many farflung cultures interacting on a regular basis throughout the galaxy. Programmed in etiquette and equipped with formidable language skills, protocol droids assist diplomats and politicians and also serve as administrative aides and companions for high-ranking officials. They come in many shapes and sizes, but most are humanoid, like the company they keep.
