"I've surveyed virtually every landscape imaginable in search of life. There's always something to hear—sometimes agreeable, sometimes not."
"Should look for transport. Nothing of use left for either of us to do here."
"I'm staying. It's not entirely dead here yet, and I'd like to conduct research."
"I know death. What's out there—it's not life, I'll tell you that. But if you insist on sticking around, I can wait."
―B-7G2 and HMC-10[src]

HMC-10 was a droid who was designed for research in the biological sciences, and was deployed on the planet Ziost during the Invasion of Ziost in the Galactic War. HMC-10 had witnessed mass deaths from the Tarisian Toxic Flu and destruction of cities from proto-isotope bombs, and HMC-10's databanks included records of a bacteria that connected its hosts into a single mind until there was nothing more to infect, upon which it died. HMC-10 and another droid, B-7G2, were evacuated from the planet prior to Vitiate's wiping out of all life on the world, and when they returned to the now-desolate surface, HMC-10 refused to help B-7G2 conduct research.

Behind the scenesEdit

HMC-10 was added to the video game Star Wars: The Old Republic as an ambient character on Ziost in Game Update 3.2: Rise of the Emperor,[1] which was released on April 28, 2015.[2]
