Background: The Recon-PK series droids, colloquially known as rolo-droids or R-PKs, were an intelligence-gathering droid series developed by Naftrat Odarr of Cybot Galactica. A modified version of the standard PK-series worker droid, the Recon-PK had its locomotion altered, replacing the original’s bipedal format with a single wheel. Also modified was the makeup of the droid’s cranial unit, which was packed full of audio/visual sensor equipment.

The Recon-PK soon became popular amongst operatives and mercenaries. Eventually, a batch of the droids was shipped to the planet Tatooine, where they were used by the various Hutt crime lords residing there. The Hutts used them to monitor their slaves, helping to prevent any escape attempts. The tables were, in time, turned on the Hutts when the young slave Anakin Skywalker began reprogramming the droids, causing them to turn a blind eye to any new escape attempts.

With a cranial unit full of audio/visual sensors, the Recon-PK was highly adept at reconnaissance tasks. The droids were so durable that they could withstand repeated exposure to the harsh conditions of Tatooine. They featured single-wheel locomotion instead of their bipedal PK-series worker droid predecessors. Though effective, The droid’s programming was relatively simple and could be reprogrammed by a child.
