The hover guards (also spelled hoverguard) was a series of sentry droids produced during the early years of the Galactic Empire. They resembled large flying insects, and each was equipped with a tiny repulsor engine for propulsion. A pair of sensor eyes were located on a hover guard's front panel, and a light stunning blaster hung down from either side. Tig Fromm, an Annoo-dat Blue gangster, used three such units as bodyguards.
