Background: Mister Bones, also simply referred to as Bones, was a heavily modified B1-series battle droid with a murderous personality. He was constructed by Temmin Wexley and built from components the boy scavenged from the catacombs beneath Myrra, the capital city of Akiva. Bones served as Temmin’s personal bodyguard in addition to being considered his friend and loyal companion. He had a sadistic personality and would sing or hum while attacking and maiming his victims. After Temmin reunited with his mother, Norra Wexley, Temmin joined the nascent New Republic and helped Norra and her team hunt down Imperial war criminals.
Mister Bones continued serving Temmin a year after the Battle of Endor. When Princess Leia Organa enlisted the services of Norra and her team in finding her husband, Han Solo, Bones accompanied them to Irudiru and later Kashyyyk. He took part in the liberation of the Ashmead’s Lock prisoners which included Temmin’s father, Brentin Wexley. Bones continued supporting his master Temmin during the lead-up to the attack on Chandrila. Following the attacks, Bones accompanied Temmin and Norra’s team in their hunt for the Imperial Grand Admiral Rae Sloane.
At the request of Temmin, Mister Bones followed the boy’s mother to Jakku. He rescued her from an Imperial labor camp. After reuniting with Jas Emari, Bones escorted the two women on their hunt for Grand Admiral Sloane. During the Battle of Jakku, Bones along with Norra joined forces with Sloane and Brentin to stop Counselor Gallius Rax from detonating both Jakku and the New Republic and Imperial forces. Bones later separated from Norra’s party and reunited with Temmin during the battle. He saved the boy from several Imperial stormtroopers but was permanently disintegrated in a friendly-fire incident by two A-wings.
Unlike other droids of his classification, Mister Bones was re-purposed with various combat droid programs, martial arts videos, the movement style of General Grievous, and the body-mapped maneuvers of Ryloth la-ley dancers. Because of his unique programming, he had developed a very strong sense of individual personality and an almost human-like bond with his master Temmin Wexley. While he was ruthless in combat, he was obedient and affectionate towards Temmin. He also came to respect and develop an affection for Temmin’s mother, Norra; on one occasion, he expressed relief that she had not perished when her TIE fighter crashed.
After Temmin joined his mother’s team, Mister Bones became the group’s unofficial comedian and had a habit of singing and dancing for the fun of it. While Mister Bones was affectionate towards Temmin’s friends and family, he was also capable of violence. On one occasion, he caught a butterfly and ripped off its wings for fun. Mister Bones was also perceptive enough to read Temmin’s facial expressions and body language and could discern when he was upset.
Mister Bones was loyal and devoted to his master Temmin. Under Temmin’s orders, Bones protected Norra during a dangerous mission to find Rae Sloane on Jakku. He was also programmed with ARM, allowing him to repair himself even after all his limbs had been dismembered. Despite his playful and sarcastic sense of humor, Bones could also be violent and once ripped the sadistic Imperial officer Effney to shreds for disintegrating him. Bones also had a child-like understanding of events and hurled Brentin against the wall since he had unwillingly hurt Temmin earlier on Chandrila. Bones’ death was mourned by Temmin, who had lost the droid he regarded as his best friend.
