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.[2]

Luke Skywalker, just prior to rescuing Princess Leia Organa in 0 BBY, encountered these droids while exploring the Death Star.[1]

Behind the scenesEdit

Prowlers appeared in the 1987 Japanese Star Wars game, although the game's canonicity is ambiguous.[1] 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.[2]
