During the Senate hostage crisis in 22 BBY, R5-S9 was working at the Republic Executive Building in the power control room when Cad Bane's posse entered the room. It was destroyed by one of Bane's IG-86 sentinel droids.
Behind the Scenes
*A few other R5-series droids were seen with the same blue and white markings in following episodes. So it is possible that R5-S9 was rebuilt after being destroyed.
*A toy of R5-S9 was released by Hasbro in 2017 as part of the "Star Wars: Droid Factory" set. However, the toy had a light blue dome, while in the show R5-S9's dome appeared to be white.
