A prowler was a flying droid used by the Galactic Empire to patrol the walkways in their first Death Star. Resembling a rectangular prism with two protruding panels, one on each side, this droid was equipped with a camera.
Behind the scenesEdit
Prowlers appeared in the 1987 Japanese Star Wars game, although the game's canonicity is ambiguous. Their name was revealed in the Japanese language manual of the game, in which it was rendered as プラウラー (purauraa) in katakana syllabary.
