- "I must say, even for a security droid, you're most ill-mannered."
- ―C-3PO, to PZ-99
PZ-99, nicknamed "Peezee-Ninety-Nine," was a masculine security droid who served in the Alliance to Restore the Republic during the Galactic Civil War and later the Resistance during its struggle against the First Order.
In 33 ABY, PZ-99 was in the service of Hoff, a captain of the Resistance, when their ship crashed on Taul. Under the leadership of C-3PO, PZ-99 and the remaining surviving droids ventured in search of a homing beacon belonging to a First Order vessel.
During the journey to find the homing beacon, PZ-99's sensors recognized that the ground was moving due to the presence of spice spiders. Instructing the droids to stand back, PZ-99 opened fire on the encroaching Spice spiders showcasing his talents with his blasters and flamethrower. PZ-99 provided cover for the droids as VL-44 cleared a path to higher ground. As the droids climbed onto the rocks, PZ-99 followed his second directive programming and stayed behind, fending off the remaining spice spiders. While C-3PO remarked that PZ-99 sacrificed himself for their safety, O-MR1 expressed that, as his enemy, PZ-99's destruction worked in his favor.
