2V-R8 is a companion character that serves as the ship droid of player characters aligned with the Sith Empire. Despite claiming that he is unsuitable for combat, 2V-R8 is able to be summoned.
2V-R8 is a Seneschal-series factotum droid outfitted to serve the galaxy's most dangerous individuals. Due to experiences with previous masters, he knows that any moment of weakness or failure could easily result in his permanent deactivation, and he has therefore created multiple subroutines to reroute all his processing capabilities, maximizing his efficiency when seeing to whatever single task his master has assigned him. Despite the constant fear of destruction hanging over his head, 2V-R8 makes every effort to appear professional and composed. He has activated numerous crisis-management programming modules to assist him with handling the stress on his processors. So far, his power core has overheated only once.
