"Not to judge a droid by his plating, but one look at their paint jobs, and you know they're nothing but trouble!"
―R0-GR writes about R4-I9 and R2-Q5[src]

R4-I9 was an R4 astromech droid[1] with masculine programming,[2] dark blue panelling and a black sensor who served the Galactic Empire. The Resistance droid R0-GR wrote about R4-I9 and his fellow Imperial R-series droid R2-Q5 in his Droidography, where he claimed that based on the color of the two Imperial droid's panelling you could tell that they were trouble.[2]


Behind the scenes[]

In the new Star Wars canon, R4-I9 was first pictured on a card in the 2015 Topps Star Wars Force Attax The Force Awakens series of cards released in 2015.[3] The droid's name was then provided by the 2017 reference book Star Wars: The Visual Encyclopedia, which was written by Adam Bray, Tricia Barr and Cole Horton.[1] the droid originated in the Star Wars Legends continuity, where it first appeared in the 1998 reference book Star Wars: The Visual Dictionary, which was written by David West Reynolds.[4]
