The Stacchati were a sentient species. The CZ-series secretary droids CZ-1 and CZ-3 once served members of the species and were modified from standard models to more closely resemble their masters. The changes included alterations to their photoreceptors to give them an appearance similar to that of Stacchati eyes. The two droids were no longer in the species' service after being abandoned following a crash on the planet Tatooine at some point by 0 BBY.
