DD-BD was a masculine programmed WDD admin-mech droid that operated within the control hub of mining operations on Kessel. Before being sold into slavery, DD-BD served on a Morseerian pirate ship. However, when the ship was impounded by the Empire, he was found there and sold at auction to the Pyke Syndicate for just a fraction of his worth. From there, he was put to work as a slave in the mining operation center on the planet Kessel. In 10 BBY, DD-BD was freed from slavery when its restraining bolt was removed during a slave revolt in the mines started by the droid L3-37. As first of many droids freed, DD-BD helped spark a rebellion on Kessel.
- DD-BD is portrayed by Warwick Davies who also played other Star Wars characters such as Wicket W. Warrick, Weazel and Wald. Davies is also well known for playing Filius Flitwick and Griphook in the Harry Potter films.
