Mechu-deru was a Force based skill of the mechanized area, providing an intricate reprogramming of droids. It was used by Jedi—especially tech-experts—to gain an intricate understanding of mechanical objects or structures, identifying their construction and purpose.
Belia Darzu used the skill to create and control an army of Technobeasts, in a process called Mechu-deru vitae. Darth Maul used the skill to modify the protocol droid C-3PX into an assassin droid and create his Dark Eye probe droid. Irek Ismaren used a similar ability to control the Eye of Palpatine. Arca Jeth used a variation of it to destroy droids rather than control them.
