"Oh, nice to see a familiar face."
"E chu ta!"
"How rude!"
―C-3PO and E-3PO[5]

E-3PO[6] was a silver[5] 3PO-series protocol droid[2] with yellow photoreceptors who was present in Cloud City, a tibanna gas mining colony that floated in the Life Zone of the planet Bespin, shortly after the Battle of Hoth.[5] After exiting a room of Imperial stormtroopers, it was greeted by a fellow 3PO unit known as C-3PO[5] but responded with a Huttese insult[2] and continued down the hallway. After calling the protocol droid rude, C-3PO heard an R2 series astromech droid inside the room that E-3PO had exited and, believing that it was his friend R2-D2, entered to investigate the sound. However, instead of finding R2, he was blasted to pieces by stormtroopers.[5]
