An R5-series astromech droid.
Previously assigned to the now decommissioned CR90 Sato, R5-B1 was the sole survivor of an attack on the ship by unidentified creatures. The droid boarded an escape pod after securing a payload of the ships cargo. R5 and the cargo were captured on the surface of the local moon by scavengers. The droid was later freed by Turk Venwea and Baz Kellen while investigating the ship’s distress signal. Turk later suggested destroying the droid, a fact it has never forgotten. After explaining its mission to NVR-4GT, the squad deemed the droid an asset. Once returned to Imperial headquarters, R5-B1 was reassigned to Dorn Squad.
