R2-MK was the R2-series astromech droid companion of the Jedi Master Mickey Mouse during the era that saw the fall of the Galactic Republic and the rise of the Galactic Empire. Together, R2-MK and Jedi Mickey partook in many galactic adventures. Unlike other members of its droid series, R2-MK bore some modifications to its head, specifically possessing a plate strongly resembling the ears of its master's species.
