The LEP-series service droid,[2] also known as the LEP servant droid, was a model of third class service droid[3] that saw use during the Clone Wars and beyond. Nuvo Vindi, Whorm Loathsom, and Tan Divo were each known to possess one of these droids.[source?] They were capable of speech, either in Galactic Basic or a series of chirps and squeaks and usually in a high-pitched voice, and performed a variety of tasks including serving refreshments and holding datapads.[5][8]

They were not designed for combat and would usually flee and hide in the event of hostilities, though they could turn aggressive and lash out if cornered.[9]

Moff Quarsh Panaka had several working in his chalet on Onoam. They were destroyed when the chalet was blown up by a bomb, parts of them getting scattered far and wide.[7]

At least two LEP servant droids worked in Takodana Castle[1] in 34 ABY.[10]

Behind the scenes[]

Sounds of LEP servant droids can be heard in the film Star Wars: Episode VII The Force Awakens, inside Takodana Castle.[11]

The design of of the droid can be dated back to early concept art by Doug Chiang for Star Wars: Episode I The Phantom Menace.[12]

They looked like bunnies and they would carry drinks and stuff. That's Dave Acord's voice, and I put a couple of those in Maz's castle. You don't see them, because the camera view can't see down that far. So that was our logic. But you could still hear them".
