"These units had weird bug-like heads designed to look like the insectoid alien species they served. They also had a pretty nasty flaw in their programming that allowed their personality software to become corrupted."
R0-GR[src]

The LOM-series protocol droid,[1] also known as a LOM-series droid[4] was a model of protocol droid manufactured by Industrial Automaton. They were designed with insectile features to emulate the species they were created to serve,[1] the sentient Gand.[5][2] Due to Cybot Galactica's hold over the protocol droid market with their 3PO-series, the LOM-series was a spectacular failure when Automaton attempted to introduce it, with even Arakyd Industries' RA-7 protocol droid selling more.[6]

The LOM-series had a flaw that allowed the personality software of a droid to be corrupted. Many LOM-series droids became enforcers in the galaxy's Outer Rim Territories.[2] 4-LOM was a LOM-series protocol droid who overrode his programming and became a bounty hunter,[1] though ISB agent Andressa Divo came to suspect the Droid Gotra was behind the programming change in order to give their droid rights movement a symbol.[7]
