Candledroids were a type of hovering droid used for illumination purposes. They were used for lighting in the throne room of the Royal Palace of Alderaan. Lessu, the capital of Ryloth, had candledroids in its cavernous archives, and Senator Leia Organa used candledroids in her office on Hosnian Prime. Candledroids were also used in the Great Hall of Birren's treasure vault. As a padawan, Obi-Wan Kenobi used the illumination from candledroids to do his work inside the Jedi Archives in the Jedi Temple on Coruscant.
