A butler droid, also known as a gentlebeing's droid was a droid that served sentient beings. Popular among the wealthy people few centuries prior to the last years of the Galactic Republic, butler droids were considered an expensive toy and a symbol of their social status. However, after many years, typical butler droids came to be out of fashion and lose their popularity to more sophisticated and more aesthetically-crafted luxury droids.
Most butler droids were programmed to know the etiquette, good manners and had the databases containing data necessary for their day-to-day service, such as information about particular eating utensils and clothing. These droids also often worked as a supervisor for household droid pool.
A model of butler droid was the JV-Z1/D butler droid.
