Judith and Garfield Reeves-Stevens provide the backstory of the extremely sadistic droid EV-9D9 in their co-written short story A Bad Feeling: The Tale of EV-9D9. The story appeared in Tales from Jabba's Palace, published in January 1996 by Bantam Spectra.
Plot summary[edit | edit source]
The sadistic droid EV-9D9 breaks free from the detention area of Cloud City. Baron Administrator Lando Calrissian tries to prevent her escape with help from his aide Lobot, the security officer Sarl Random, and a traffic droid designated 12-4C-41. They fail, and EV-9D9 escapes on the Iopene Princess.
Years later EV-9D9 is working as Jabba's droid supervisor. Two new droids, R2-D2 and C-3PO, are brought to her and she gives them assignments. After they leave, she becomes suspicious. She eventually discovers that Lando Calrissian has infiltrated the palace under the pseudonym Tamtel Skreej. She assumes that the droids are part of a plot of Lando's to recapture her. She plans to cover her tracks and leave Tatooine, but is attacked by an unknown figure. She assumes it is Lando, but it turns out to be 12-4C-41, seeking vengeance for the torture and destruction of his "brothers" on Cloud City. 12-4C-41 releases the droids that EV-9D9 has tortured so they can take revenge on her. He also removes her pain simulator, so she cannot take twisted pleasure from her own destruction.
