Resourceful and spunky, Astromech Droid R2-D2 (Artoo-Detoo) continually finds himself at the heart of pivotal galactic events, often paired with his fussy, ultra-nervous protocol droid counterpart, C-3PO. Senator Padmé Amidala gives Artoo to Anakin Skywalker when he becomes a full-fledged Jedi Knight at the start of the Clone Wars. The little Astromech Dorid faithfully serves Anakin throughout this galaxy-wide conflict, usually flying in the droid socket of his master's starfighter.
