BD-1 was a BD unit droid that accompanied the former Jedi Padawan Cal Kestis during the time after Order 66. Designed to assist with exploration in remote and dangerous locations, BD-1 was enthusiastic about research and data collection, but often disregarded self-preservation. He was equipped with various tools, including a spotlight.
Behind the scenesEdit
BD-1 is a droid character created for the game Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order, developed by Respawn Entertainment. He was designed by Jordan Lamarre-Wan, modeled and textured by Tim Wallace, animated by Laure Retif and rigged by Jesus Baeza under the supervision of Chris Sutton and Bruce Ferriz. Respawn's FX Lead Jason Burton created the digital effects for BD-1's LED display. Adnan Chatriwala was the narrative designer who defined BD-1's functionality and personality in the game.
His voice was created by sound designer Ben Burtt. Respawn and Lucasfilm's design process for BD-1 took over two years, during which inspiration for the droid included Charles Schulz's characters Snoopy and Woodstock, as well as the dog of Aaron Contreras, Narrative Lead in the design team for Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order.
BD-1 shares traits with BT-7274, the deuteragonist of Titanfall 2, another title developed by Respawn Entertainment. Both are the mechanical companions of player characters, Cal Kestis for Jedi: Fallen Order, and Jack Cooper in Titanfall 2. Their similar name schemes, BD and BT, are short for both Buddy Droid and Buddy Titan respectively.
