The Pylon Guardian was a type of battle droid created by the Gray Secant, a Gree research starship, for the purpose of guarding the research pylons that the Gray Secant would use to test sentient lifeforms. The large, three-legged droid came in two identical variations—Mk-II and the more powerful Mk-IV—and all Pylon Guardians were equipped with Gree disintegrators, a digital stasis field, and a phase pulse.[1]

Behind the scenesEdit

The Pylon Guardian appears as an enemy involved in the Heroic mission "Primary Testing" during the Relics of the Gree World Event on the planet Ilum,[1] which was first added to the video game Star Wars: The Old Republic in Game Update 1.7: Return of the Gree on February 12, 2013.[2] Two variations appear: the Pylon Guardian Mk-IV, which can be found at the three pylons in the northern section of the Western Ice Shelf, and the Pylon Guardian Mk-II, which is found in the open world player-vs-player zone in the center of the area. The Mk-II, like the Mk-II versions of the three other Gree droids involved in the mission, is reduced in strength to make it possible for smaller groups to complete the mission in an area where they can be attacked by other players.[1]
