Drol was a mythical god of the planet Iego, which the inhabitants hailed as both their protector and bringer of destruction.

HistoryEdit

When the Confederacy of Independent Systems built a system of laser emitters in orbit to prevent the inhabitants of Iego from leaving the planet, planetary superstition claimed it was Drol who cursed the inhabitants. According to this belief Drol was a destructive spirit that obliterated any starship trying to leave the system.

Anakin Skywalker and Obi-Wan Kenobi spread the truth about Drol to the inhabitants of Iego and destroyed it by sending in remote-controlled Vulture droids and destroying the main dish, bringing freedom to the planet.

Behind the scenesEdit

The laser web's main emitter was a dish that was shaped like the Death Star I's main firing dish, which may imply that the laser web was a Separatist prototype of the Death Star's super laser.

The web itself was reminiscent of Star Trek's Tholian web.

In the Dutch version of the episode Mystery of a Thousand Moons, Drol was named "Grol", because "Drol" means "poo" in Dutch.

"Drol" is "Lord" spelled backwards.
