Characteristics[edit | edit source]

"Although it isn't much more than a simple photoreceptor mounted on a retractable eyestalk, this droid is adept at keeping out the riffraff so the rich and the superrich [sic] can enjoy their luxurious lifestyles in peace."

C-3PO encounters Jabba's TT-8L/Y7

A model of security droid[2] consisting of an extending[3] eyestalk[1] with an orange photoreceptor,[3] the TT-8L/Y7 gatekeeper droid[7] was installed in doors and entryways to screen visitors[1] and scan for weapons. Considered obnoxious and invasive, TT-8L/Y7s enjoyed their position of control[2] and were nicknamed "tattletale droids" due to their demeanor in the pursuit of fulfilling their programming.[1] They spoke in a barking metallic voice using an attached speaker and had a grating laugh.[4] TT-8L/Y7s also functioned as holocams.[8]

History[edit | edit source]

"TEE CHUTA HHAT YUDD!"
―Jabba's TT-8L/Y7[src]

Manufactured by Serv-O-Droid, Inc., the TT-8L/Y7 was in use across the galaxy for years.[1] During the Clone Wars, one was installed outside the main entrance of Rishi Station, a Grand Army of the Republic listening post,[5] and the Trandoshan scavenger Gha Nachkt had a pair of these droids installed in the airlock of his freighter, the Vulture's Claw.[9] General Grievous, the leader of the Separatist Droid Army, had[6] several[8] TT-8L/Y7s in his fortress on the third moon of Vassek.[6] The Hutt crime lord Jabba Desilijic Tiure had one fitted into the front gate of his palace on Tatooine,[3] which was considered to be one of the most infamous and annoying examples ever in use.[1]
