- "Stop them! They've ruined our past—they can't destroy our future! Children, stop him!"
- ―Karina commands her "children" to stop Darth Vader from stealing her womb
Droid workers were modified B1 battle droids created by the Geonosian queen Karina when she was sterilized by the Galactic Empire to continue the Geonosian species. She did not think of them as droids, but as her own children. In the year 0 ABY, the Sith Lord Darth Vader stole the droid factory Karina used as her womb, preventing her from creating more droid workers.
Modified B1 battle droids, battle droids designed to resemble their Geonosian creators, droid workers furthered this resemblance with their brown plating, red photoreceptors, and pair of functional wings on their backs. Featuring masculine programming, they spoke Geonosian hive-mind and carried E-5 blaster rifles.
