- "I am A-4P0, Jedi archivist. How may I help you?"
A-4P0 was a librarian droid who served the Jedi Order as an analyst in the Archives of the Jedi Temple on the planet Tython during the Galactic Republic's Cold War with the Sith Empire. A droid with masculine programming, A-4P0 was stationed in the Archives during the uprising of the native Flesh Raiders in 3643 BBY, and the droid answered the comm when the apprentice of Jedi Master Orgus Din contacted the Archives for information on the ancient machine known as the Forge. When the Padawan told A-4P0 of how Master Din had been captured by the Dark Jedi Bengel Morr and how the Nautolan had taken Din to the Forge, A-4P0 transmitted the young Jedi information on the location and warned the apprentice that the Temple Masters were occupied striking at other Flesh Raider camps and would not be able to aid the Padawan in time.
Behind the scenes[edit | edit source]
A-4P0 first appeared in the massively multiplayer online role-playing video game Star Wars: The Old Republic, released by BioWare and LucasArts in 2011. His only appearance is in hologram form during the Jedi Knight mission "Weapon of the Jedi" on Tython, where he gives the player the location of the Forge.

Notes and references[edit | edit source]
- Star Wars: The Old Republic—Jedi Knight Mission: "Weapon of the Jedi" on Tython
- Star Wars: The Old Republic about ten to twelve years after the signing of the Treaty of Coruscant, which is dated to 3653 BBY by Star Wars: The Old Republic Encyclopedia. The Old Republic—The Lost Suns 2 takes place ten years after the treaty, one week after the mission to Nar Shaddaa, and around the time of the SpecForce Incident. Since the mission and the incident are respectively part of Act I of the Jedi Knight and Republic Trooper's storylines, and the Trooper's Act I occurs concurrent to Act I of the Smuggler storyline, the general events of Act I for all classes can be assumed to occur in 3643 BBY. The Prologue for each class immediately precedes Act I, and Act III for all classes begins with the start of the Galactic War, which Star Wars: The Old Republic Encyclopedia places around 3640 BBY. Assuming that in-universe chronology of the Star Wars: The Old Republic events roughly aligns with the release of story content in real-life as with , the Act III Epilogue must take place near the end of 3640 BBY since it was the chronologically latest story of the The Old Republic base game, which was released toward the end of 2011. Therefore, assuming that The Old Republic takes place over the course of three years per the former of the two aforementioned swtor.com posts, Act I takes place near the end of 3643 BBY. A-4P0 appears during Act I for the Jedi Knight class, placing their appearance in 3643 BBY. places
