DD-BD was a masculine-programmed[2] WDD adminmech droid[4] that operated within the control hub of mining operations on Kessel.[5] Before being sold into slavery, DD-BD served on a Morseerian pirate ship. However, when the ship was impounded by the Empire, he was found there and sold at auction to the Pyke Syndicate for just a fraction of his worth. From there, he was put to work as a slave in the mining operation center on the planet Kessel.[1] In 10 BBY,[6] DD-BD was freed from slavery when his restraining bolt was removed during a slave revolt in the mines started by the droid L3-37. As the first of many droids freed, DD-BD helped spark a rebellion on Kessel.[3]

Personality and traitsEdit

Like other adminmech droids, DD-BD was programmed to be driven by efficiency and quotas and never question orders. He possessed a very overeager personality.[2] Being freed by L3-37 awoke a new sense of rebellion and independence within DD-BD,[1] unusual for droids of his class.[2]


DD-BD was encased in a white plastoid shell with heavy weighted feet for enhanced stability. He was equipped with a hybrid radar eye and photoreceptor and an electroprobe with variable voltage settings. During his time working on Kessel he was fitted with a powerful restraining bolt that was welded to his body and capable of shutting him down or shocking him for failing to obey commands.[2]

Behind the scenesEdit

DD-BD first appeared in the 2018 Star Wars Anthology film Solo: A Star Wars Story and was one of several characters played by Star Wars veteran Warwick Davis.[7]
