Description: C2-B5 was an astromech droid in the service of the Galactic Empire during the Imperial Era. The droid was frequently subjected to memory wipes to keep it subservient, causing the astromech to have no distinctive personality. It was capable of deploying a large personal energy shield, scanning the area for hostiles, and releasing a poisonous dioxis gas.
Once deployed in an Imperial facility near Fortress Vader on the lava world of Mustafar, C2-B5 was stationed in the Imperial security complex on the planet Scarif in 0 BBY, patrolling for needed maintenance and performing computer network sweeps within the Citadel Tower's data vault. The droid was present in the Citadel when the Battle of Scarif broke out against the Rebel Alliance, which resulted in the destruction of the entire base by the Empire's Death Star superweapon.
C2-B5 was an astromech droid who served the Galactic Empire during its reign across the galaxy. Sometime prior to the official formation of the Rebel Alliance in the year 2 BBY, the droid was deployed in an Imperial base located near Fortress Vader, the personal residence of the Sith Lord Darth Vader, on the volcanic planet Mustafar. The droid was present at the base when a team of rebels, including the rebel pilot Athex and ex-Imperial security droid K-2SO, disguised themselves as stormtroopers and infiltrated the facility to recover intelligence regarding a powerful artifact in Imperial possession.
In 0 BBY, the droid was stationed in the Imperial security complex on the Outer Rim planet Scarif, tasked with searching for maintenance needs and sweeping the computer network to locate any electronic discrepancies within the data vault of the Citadel Tower. The Imperial droid was present in the Citadel when a rebel squad called Rogue One infiltrated the base to steal the plans for the Empire's Death Star superweapon. Three undercover rebel agentsâ€”Jyn Erso, Cassian Andor, and K-2SOâ€”walked past C2-B5 inside the base.
Later, when rebel troopers outside the base began their attack to facilitate the rebel trio's entrance into the data vault, the astromech was roaming the Citadel corridors alongside the stormtrooper garrison rushing to intercept the rebel infiltrators. The Battle of Scarif eventually concluded with the Alliance's theft of the plans and the destruction of the entire Imperial complex by the Death Star's superlaser.
C2-B5 was a sinister-looking astromech droid that stood 0.93 meters (3 feet 1 inch) tall. Featuring gunmetal plating with matte black and silver accent panels around its cylindrical body, C2-B5 contained a black sensor and a processor state indicator on the front of its dome that produced a red light, which could alternatively switch to blue. The astromech also had another indicator on the back of its dome that emitted light in alternating yellow and green. C2-B5's dome additionally featured illuminated logic function and diagnostic light display ports, and the droid also had a retractable third leg.
As an Imperial droid, C2-B5 was not granted independence and was routinely subjected to memory wipes by Imperial technicians to ensure its subservience. For this reason, the droid did not have any sort of distinctive personality and considered serving the Empire as its sole purpose until it was destroyed or its memory was wiped for a new mission.
C2-B5 was equipped with a deflector shield generator capable of deploying a large personal energy shield, and the astromech could also release toxic dioxis gas in order to neutralize nearby opponents. The droid was additionally able to emit a 360-degree scan pulse burst that revealed enemies out of sight.
