Description: R-3PO (Ar-Threepio) was a 3PO-series protocol droid affiliated with the Alliance to Restore the Republic during the height of the Galactic Civil War. Known for his distinctive red coloring, a tattoo on his left posterior plating that read "Thank The Maker," and a moody disposition, R-3PO was stationed at the Alliance High Command's secret Echo Base on the remote ice world of Hoth by 3 ABY. After his original owner, a smuggler named Chaz, purposely left R-3PO at the base for the Rebels to deal with, Alliance Major Palo Torshan recommended he be used as an espionage droid to uncover Imperial spy droids. R-3PO successfully helped to foil several Imperial infiltration attempts while serving at the base and, subsequently, with High Command.

A flamboyant annoyance
R-3PO, or Ar-Threepio, was a red-plated 3PO-series protocol droid of the Alliance to Restore the Republic during the Galactic Civil War. Originally the property of Chaz, one of the Rebellion's most notorious smugglers, R-3PO was "accidentally" left behind at the Alliance's secret Echo Base on the Outer Rim Territories ice planet Hoth, where he soon became a general annoyance because of his moody disposition.

Knowing that the Galactic Empire typically made a habit of programming droids as spies in the hopes that they would eventually find their way into the Rebel Alliance, Echo Base's Major Palo Torshan, one of the top security personnel present, suggested that R-3PO be reprogrammed to combat the threat of Imperial espionage droids. R-3PO would be set loose among Echo Base's droid pool, ferreting out those droid spies. Additionally, Torshan recommended that R-3PO not be given a memory wipe and to leave his exterior skeleton its conspicuous red color—after all, he reasoned, who would suspect a flamboyant, temperamental protocol droid of doubling as a spy?

Echo Base espionage droid
The Alliance specially modified R-3PO to perform his espionage duty by detecting spies through careful observation of his peers. Indeed, R-3PO proceeded to help foil several Imperial infiltration attempts during his service at Echo Base, while no one suspected a thing, a testament to Torshan's insight. R-3PO's responsibilities on Hoth also included serving in the base's command center.

In 3 ABY, R-3PO was present in Echo Base's central hangar when Han Solo returned from a routine scouting mission of Hoth's external terrain with Rebel Commander Luke Skywalker. The droid was again present in the hangar days later during Princess Leia Organa's briefing of Rogue Squadron just prior to the Battle of Hoth. Following his service at Echo Base, R-3PO earned an assignment to the Alliance High Command, where he continued to successfully uncover several Imperial infiltration attempts.

R-3PO was the moodiest droid in Echo Base, a distinction that earned him the ire of those around him. His initial owner, the smuggler Chaz, intentionally left the droid behind for the Rebels to deal with after visiting Echo Base. R-3PO's recognizable red coloring, coupled with his moody persona, led Major Palo Torshan to believe that he would serve perfectly as an espionage droid within the base's droid pool. R-3PO performed his espionage duties by carefully observing those around him with his yellow photoreceptors. R-3PO lent his tactical expertise to the Echo Base command center as well.

Typical of a protocol droid's responsibilities, R-3PO was designed to mediate the differences of the galaxy's wide range of cultures. He was programmed in etiquette and had a considerable ability to speak many different languages, which he used as an aide to diplomats, politicians, and other high-ranking officials.

Aside from his flamboyant red coloring, R-3PO sported a tattoo on his left posterior plating, which read, "Thank The Maker."
