'''E-3PO''' units were a subset of the [[3PO-series protocol droid]] line. Developed for [[Galactic Empire/Legends|Imperial]] use, E-3POs possessed the [[TechSpan I]] propriety module, which allowed them to interface with a wide variety of networks employed by the Galactic Empire. Their obscure and rare status led to E-3PO units developing arrogant, superior, and haughty attitudes, which would gain them a degree of notoriety throughout [[The galaxy/Legends|the galaxy]].

During the [[Galactic Civil War/Legends|Galactic Civil War]], the E-3PO production line on [[Mechis III/Legends|Mechis III]] was commandeered by the megalomaniac [[Assassin droid/Legends|assassin droid]] [[IG-88A]]. Supplanting their standard programming with his own sleeper version, IG-88A had the E-3PO [[Droid/Legends|droids]] serve as his [[Spy/Legends|spies]] throughout the galaxy as part of his [[Droid Revolution]]. While normally, the new programming would eventually become evident, the natural demeanor of the E-3POs masked it.

==Functions and capabilities==
A subset of the [[3PO-series protocol droid]] model, E-3PO units possessed the [[TechSpan I]] module, which allowed them to interface with [[Galactic Empire/Legends|Imperial]] networks. It also allowed them to interact with rare or obscure technologies produced by Imperial subcontractors. The E-3PO units, greatly limited and highly expensive, were aware of their prestigious status, and the awareness was, in turn, reflected in their metaprogramming. In time, E-3PO units would exhibit a superior attitude, and haughty behavior. In keeping with their limited numbers, E-3PO units rarely applied identifiers to their serial number, often just going by the name of "E-3PO."<ref name="db" />

==History==
The E-3PO line of [[Protocol droid/Legends|protocol droids]] was produced during the [[Galactic Civil War/Legends|Galactic Civil War]] on the [[factory world]] of [[Mechis III/Legends|Mechis III]]. Given the TechSpan I technology, their purpose was to interact with many different kinds of disparate Imperial networks. In time, the E-3PO units became aware of their own exclusivity, and became notoriously brusque and rude by protocol [[Droid/Legends|droid]] standards. That flaw in their personality and programming inspired [[IG-88A]] to use the E-3POs as his [[Spy/Legends|spies]] throughout [[The galaxy/Legends|the galaxy]] to help implement his [[Droid Revolution]]. His own sleeper programming, which caused personality aberrations, was masked by the natural temperament of the E-3PO. Modifying the droids on Mechis III, he dispatched scores of Imperial commissioned droids throughout the galaxy, with their alterations totally unknown to their owners.<ref name="db" />

Following the first demise of [[Galactic Emperor/Legends|Emperor]] [[Palpatine/Legends|Palpatine]] during the [[Battle of Endor/Legends|Battle of Endor]] and the subsequent rise of the [[New Republic/Legends|New Republic]], [[New Republic Intelligence Service]] agents were able to acquire an [[E-3PO (Bespin)/Legends|E-3PO unit]] that had served on [[Cloud City/Legends|Cloud City]], [[Bespin/Legends|Bespin]]. Unfortunately for the agents, the E-3PO's TechSpan I module had been removed.<ref name="db" />

During the early stages of the Galactic Civil War, an E-3PO droid served aboard the [[PLY-3500]] ''[[Nova's Heart]]'', a [[Yacht/Legends|space yacht]] that was owned by the [[holostar]] [[Javul Charn]].

First appearing in [[Irvin Kershner]]'s [[Star Wars: Episode V The Empire Strikes Back|''Star Wars'': Episode V ''The Empire Strikes Back'']], the E-3PO model of droid was first given its name in the [[Star Wars Customizable Card Game|''Star Wars'' Customizable Card Game]]. The backstory of the droid subset was later established by "[[The Phantom Calamari]]" and "[[ejmacki]]" through [[StarWars.com]]'s [[Hyperspace: The Official Star Wars Fan Club|Hyperspace]] feature, "[[What's The Story?]]". The [[Databank (original)|Databank]] entry chosen featured introductory text by [[Tyler Fisher]]. Information from the entry was later used in [[2008]]'s ''[[The Complete Star Wars Encyclopedia]]''. The [[2004]] [[Star Wars Roleplaying Game|role-playing]] adventure [[Contract AA23 (roleplaying adventure)|''Contract AA23'']] also featured a protocol droid named [[E-3PO (Clone Wars)|E-3PO]], although the adventure did not clarify whether the droid was of the E-3PO class.
