Description: CZ-1 was a CZ-series secretary/business communications droid with masculine programming that was paired with CZ-3, another droid of the same model. After a crash left him abandoned on the planet Tatooine, CZ-1 became separated from CZ-3 and ended up in a pile of scrap on board a Jawa sandcrawler, where he encountered the astromech droid R2-D2 in 0 BBY.
CZ-1 was the designation of a CZ-series secretary/business communications droid manufactured by Serv-O-Droid, Inc. with masculine programming. He was twinned with fellow CZ unit CZ-3 in service to members of the Stacchati species.
After a crash in the deserts of the planet Tatooine, CZ-1 was abandoned and became separated from CZ-3. He then broke down and was captured by Jawa scavengers. In 0 BBY, the secretary droid was on board the sandcrawler of the Jawa Chief Nebit's tribe when the astromech droid R2-D2 was brought on board after being captured in the Jundland Wastes.
As the astromech rolled past CZ-1 while surveying his surroundings, the secretary droid swayed back and forth amidst a heap of scrap. R2-D2 was later sold when the sandcrawler stopped at the Lars moisture farm, after which Imperial stormtroopers massacred Nebit's tribe and left its sandcrawler abandoned in the desert.
CZ-1 was modified from a standard CZ-series droid to more closely resemble the Stacchati he once served, with black photoreceptors made to look like Stacchati eyes. The droid's hands were human-style manipulators with five digits. By 0 BBY, CZ-1 was ancient with locomotors too broken and sand-encrusted for him to stand or move properly. Despite this, he remained optimistic and hoped to soon be repaired and sold. CZ-1 had white plating that was stained black or brown in many areas.
