Clone Wars Campaign: Naught, Droid Liberationist

Naught was an interesting PC created near the end of the campaign by the player who normally ran A'tel. Naught was a sentient droid who had rebelled against his owners and decided to fight for droid liberation while doing some bounty hunting on the side. The character had a brash, take-no-prisoners attitude and was found of calling humans and other organic beings "meat sacks." The group encountered Naught on Haruun Kal, and he joined them on a mission into the foreboding jungles of the planet. The character only appeared in one session, but received a cool (if dark) epilogue:

The Droid Naught is successful in taking his revenge on the procurement agent who had sinned against his fellow synthetic life forms. However, he is soon captured himself – and he suffers a terrible fate. He is reprogrammed by a bitter clone trooper and reset to his factory defaults – placed in servitude again as an entertainment droid, designated G8M1. However, deep inside a flicker of the synthetic being known as “Naught” continues to rage and clings to the chance of eventual escape.

Background Intro:

"The club's music blared over the house's speaker system. I hunched over the bar fingering my blaster, the song that played over the speaker was one of mine. It comes from when I was a tool of the Maker serving my 'Masters' making them fists full of creds while I slaved away for the juice they gave me from a charging station. The song is the name I chose for myself when I decided to 'liberate' myself from the servitude of my masters. I used to be called EKO in a Droi-Band (or Synthetic Life Form Band depending on how much of a snob you are.) The band was called IMGR8 and the sond was 2BR02B (pronounced 2 bee or naught 2 bee,) when I turned on my 'masters' and taught them that I was just as sentient as their meat sack asses. I changed my hard wiring with the help of a few of the credits they earned on my tin back and a well-meaning splicer who was a fan of my band. My new designation was a nice clean one, simple Service Droid with nice legitimate software DRM in place and a clean service record slate for my Serial Key. The designation 2BR02B but I just go by Naught (or Naught-e if you're a really close friend.)"
