Description: 5D6-RA-7 was an RA-7 protocol droid manufactured by Arakyd Industries who served as a spy for the Imperial Security Bureau and Imperial Intelligence. Investigating Imperial officers whose loyalty was in question, the protocol droid served as a staff aide to the Galactic Empire's Admiral Conan Antonio Motti by 0 BBY. In that year, 5D6-RA-7 was present aboard the DS-1 Orbital Battle Station prior to the Battle of Yavin. During the battle itself, the droid was destroyed when the Alliance to Restore the Republic destroyed the station over the Yavin system.
Manufactured by Arakyd Industries, 5D6-RA-7 was an RA-7 protocol droid with masculine programming. By 0 BBY, the protocol droid served in the Galactic Empire's Imperial Security Bureau as a spy who secretly investigated Imperial officers whose loyalty was in question, and reported on the officers to the Bureau. He was also a spy for Imperial Intelligence.
By 0 BBY, 5D6-RA-7 served as an aide to the staff of Imperial Admiral Conan Antonio Motti. Both 5D6-RA-7 and Motti were aboard the DS-1 Orbital Battle Station in that year. During an infiltration by eventual Alliance to Restore the Republic members Luke Skywalker and Han Solo, the droid walked through one of the station's corridors and unknowingly passed by the pairâ€”disguised as stormtroopers TK-421 and TK-422 with Solo's ally Chewbacca as an apparent prisonerâ€”as the infiltrators were waiting for a turbolift.
Skywalker, Solo, and Chewbacca eventually rescued one of the Empire's prisoners, the Alliance's Princess Leia Organa, and escaped the DS-1 Orbital Battle Station with Organa. Not too long after, the Battle of Yavin occurred, with the Alliance's starfighters attacking and destroying the DS-1 Orbital Battle Station over the Yavin system. 5D6-RA-7 was destroyed during the station's destruction.
5D6-RA-7 was particularly foul-tempered, as well as vindictive, and was feared by other droids. He had black plating and silver sensors.
