"We have been without an interpreter since our master got angry with our last protocol droid and disintegrated him."
―EV-9D9 and C-3PO — (audio) Listen (file info)[2]

A masculine protocol droid served as the interpreter of Jabba Desilijic Tiure, a Hutt crime lord who led his own criminal empire, until he angered his master and was disintegrated, reducing the droid to a pile of scrap. Shortly before the Rescue of Han Solo[1] in 4 ABY,[3] EV-9D9, the supervisor of Jabba's Palace's droid pool, told C-3PO, Jabba's new interpreter, of his predecessor's fate and gestured towards the droid's remains, which had been dumped near the door of a furnace in her torture chamber.[1]

Behind the scenes[]

The interpreter droid was first mentioned in the 1983 film Star Wars: Episode VI Return of the Jedi,[2] and his remains appeared in Return of the Jedi: Beware the Power of the Dark Side!, a 2015 young-readers novelization of the film written by Tom Angleberger.[1]
