Shrugging off the Chains

This is a character that I am going to play in an upcoming game on the Holonet. Meet FR3D, a tutor droid who has had enough and joins a droid rebellion in which the droids will "Shrug of their chains" of slavery on Coruscant.

FR3D was a simple TT5-15 tutorial droid on Corellia. He was bough by a famous holovid director, G. Lukkas. FR3D had taught all three of the Lukkas children over a period of twenty five years. He had never received a memory wipe, as it was thought that the more a tutor droid knew, the better it could do its job. Lukkas told FR3D that he would release him as an independent droid at the end of the year, as his third child would be finishing her education. FR3D was eager to be free to do something new. During his last year as a tutor he had begun to attend droid meetings. This is where the seed of anti-organism was planter. He still appreciated Lukkas and other organics, but he began to see that he was not equal with organics.

In the final month of Lukkas’ daughter’s education, Lukkas’ wife became pregnant with the fourth Lukkas child. FR3D would be force to educate another child into adulthood. He desired to kill Lukkas, but his programming would not allow it. He ran away from the Lukkas household. He found contracts in his droid meetings that could remove this peaceful programming. The droids knew that FR3D would become a resistance fighter, supporting their cause. FR3D knew Lukkas was looking for him, so he left for Coruscant.

When stealth is important, FR3D excels in his harmless tutor droid design. He has internal storage large enough to support a blaster pistol and a blaster rifle, modified to be lighter, as well as an assortment of grenades. When carrying large weapons around doesn’t matter, FR3D keeps his E-11 rifle on a shoulder strap and his DL-18 pistol holstered on his hip. Another of his stealthy features is the electroshock probe built into his fingers. This is useful as his body isn’t very threatening and can usually come close enough to organics to stun them.

Although, the droid rebellion that FR3D participates in is 5000 years before the Battle of Yavin, there isn't anything era-specific about his backstory. It makes it easy to throw him into your campaign in any era.
