C-3PO and his maker

C-3PO is a protocol droid in the Star Wars universe. It provided translation services as well as interfacing with and programming devices such as binary loadlifters and moisture vaporators.

In the prequels, it was built by Anakin Skywalker, and ended up on Alderaan with Leia Organa after having its memory erased. In the original movies, it is owned (indirectly) by Princess Leia, and then by Luke Skywalker.

Fluent in over six million forms of communication, it understands R2-D2, Ewoks, and Huttese, and knows many expressions of dismay, regret, and resignation.
