R5-R2 was an Astromech Droid in Mos Eisley. He was on the street and witnessed Obi-Wan Kenobi's use of the Jedi Mind Trick on the Sandtroopers. He tried to alert the troopers that those were indeed the droids they were looking for, but nobody bothered translating his series of beeps and whistles. He later joined R3-Y2 and his New Droid Empire. After R3's assassination at Nobot's hands, R5 became a filmmaker. He is currently working on a Movie adapation of Married ... With Mynocks.
