The stone guardians, also called Zardossa droids, were a model of droid which were used on the moon Zardossa Stix. In their inactive state, the stone guardians appeared like large stone columns outside of the Temple of Malmourral. However, if one were to touch the guardian in their inactive state, they would be activated. In their active state, the stone guardians resembled semi-humanoid creatures, and were animated by unknown powers. The droids also were armed with heavy energy projectors, which unleashed powerful torrents of energy.
In 19 BBY, the temple was visited by members of the Frangawl Cult, who controlled the Temple of Malmourral and thus the stone guardians. Soon after the cult's arrival, their pursuers also arrived—Jedi Master Mace Windu and Junior Representative Jar Jar Binks. While approaching the temple, Binks touched one of the stone guardians, which caused all of them to come alive and attack both Binks and Windu. After a brief engagement, all of the guardians defending the temple were destroyed, and Binks captured one of their heavy energy projectors.

Notes and references[edit | edit source]
- Star Wars: The Clone Wars – "The Disappeared, Part II"
- Star Wars: Galactic Atlas dates the events of "The Wrong Jedi" and the Battle of Coruscant as being in 19 BBY. puts the events of "The Disappeared, Part II" after "The Wrong Jedi," but before the events of Star Wars: Episode III Revenge of the Sith which means that its events would take place in the same year as both.
