Background: R4-P22 was the designation of the astromech droid attached to Anakin Skywalker’s modified Delta-7 Aethersprite-class starfighter, Azure Angel, during the Clone Wars.
Although part of the R4-series of astromech droids, R4-P22—and all other Jedi Temple astromechs had a modified R2-style dome rather than the usual conical head dome.
R4-P22 flew with Anakin Skywalker during the Battle of Muunilinst, but was destroyed on the surface of Yavin 4 when Asajj Ventress destroyed his ship.
Skywalker’s wife, Padmé Amidala, later presented him with her Royal House of Naboo droid R2-D2, which flew with Anakin for the rest of the war.
