Real Name:
Search for 'R2-D2' on Amazon

A so-called "astromech droid", R2D2 may be of Naboo design, although technically his origin has never been revealed. So far, his first appearance is in the events surrounding The Phantom Menace, in which it is revealed that he is in service aboard Queen Amidala's Royal Yacht. He proves to have skills which far exceed those of an ordinary astromech drone. At times seeming more human than machine, he has an uncanny instinct for self-preservation and is likely the only entity in the Star Wars galaxy to have survived with his memory intact, and been privy to enough first-hand knowledge of both personal and galactic events, to completely understand the events from The Phantom Menace to Return of the Jedi.

For this reason, it is commonly speculated that he is the historian responsible for the writing of those passages of The Journal of the Whills dealing with this time period. Since the stories of Padmé Amidala, Anakin Skywalker, Obi-Wan Kenobi, Luke Skywalker and Leia Organa are said to have come from the Journal, he is frequently viewed as the narrator of the Star Wars saga.
