Droids are mechanical devices, often capable of intelligent and creative thought. Droid-types range from simple units that can only follow basic commands, to highly developed units capable of translating millions of languages or assisting in the piloting of a starship. Higher function droids are programmed with perosnalities, are capable of acting independently and making decisions; some droids even seem to have emotions. In short, they are an electronic form of life.

On the Star Wars: Age of Strife, humanoid droids (such as Protocol Droids, or Servant Droids, or similar variations therein) are available to be played as chars by players. This race is restricted, however- those interested must apply to the RPA describing the type of droid they wouldwish to play, along with a brief background/character description to explain what they would be like and what purpose they would intend to serve.
