"Welcome, sirs! I can't tell you how good it is to find guests in the palace! I am TeeCee-Sixteen and I am at your service."

TC-16 was a silver protocol droid owned by Trade Federation Viceroy Nute Gunray in his citadel on Cato Neimoidia in 19 BBY.


He was captured by the Republic in the Battle of Cato Neimoidia, and served Jedi Generals Anakin Skywalker and Obi-Wan Kenobi as a translator in their subsequent mission to Charros IV. He later was refurbished by the Xi Charrians and assigned as a translator to Aurek Team.

After he witnessed Aurek Team's death at the hands of Darth Sidious, and combined with his own sudden reversal of loyalties, the spared TC-16 apparently suffered the droid equivalent of a mental breakdown. In a discussion with C-3PO, he predicted the coming dark times and that the line between good and evil would become blurred. He then advised C-3PO to accept a mind wipe if ever offered, as the alternative would be permanent fear and confusion.

TC's posture was slouched due to a damaged pelvic joint, and he suffered from circuitry corrosion.
