"Mum. It appears as if someone is at the door."
―T-2LC served as Leia's nanny[src]

T-2LC also known as "Elsie" was a protocol droid who served as a nanny for Han Solo and Leia Organa around the time of the Battle of Jakku. Senator Tolwar Wartol, a rival of Chancellor Mon Mothma, planted a listening device on T-2LC in order to gain an advantage over his political rival.


T-2LC served as a nanny for Leia Organa and Han Solo in 5 ABY. Under Han's orders, T-2LC followed the heavily pregnant Leia closely all the time to ensure that she did not fall over. Shortly prior to the Battle of Jakku, Senator Tolwar Wartol, a rival of Chancellor Mon Mothma, secretly installed a listening device inside T-2LC in order to spy on the Chancellor and her circle of friends including Princess Leia. When Han once returned with a bag of jogan fruits, T-2LC was too slow to open the door and Leia was forced to do it herself. While Han and Leia were talking, T-2LC reported that Leia had received a hologram call from the New Republic operative Norra Wexley.[1]

T-2LC was present when Norra's son Temmin Wexley and the former Imperial loyalty officer Sinjir Rath Velus visited Leia's domicile to inform her that the Imperial remnants had relocated to the planet Jakku. T-2LC remained in the background when Chancellor Mothma entered the room and questioned Temmin and Sinjir about what they had seen on Jakku. T-2LC shadowed Leia when she and Solo allowed Temmin and Sinjir to borrow the YT-1300 light freighter known as the Millennium Falcon. Unknown to T-2LC and the others, Wartol was listening to their conversations. He leaked news about the Imperial presence on Jakku to the press and accused Mon Mothma of being weak. Later, Wartol sent Senate Guards to prevent Temmin and Sinjir from leaving aboard the Falcon to head to Jakku.[1]

When Sinjir suspected that there was a listening bug in Leia's domicile, he contacted his former lover Conder Kyl to investigate. Kyl was unable to pick up any listening bugs in the domicile but found the bug inside T-2LC. Han Solo told T-2LC that it was going to hurt a little before he removed the listening bug. As a result, Chancellor Mothma was able to confront Senator Wartol about his espionage and political manipulations.


"It's not me, mum!"
"Elsie, you oughta hold still. This is going to sting a little."
―Elsie and Han Solo respond to the discover of the listening device[src]

T-2LC was a protocol droid with a masculine programming. He was programmed to serve as a nanny droid. T-2LC followed Han Solo's instructions to the letter to the extent that Leia sometimes almost tripped over his metal feet. T-2LC also appeared to have slow reflexes, which sometimes irritated Han and Leia. T-2LC had servomotors which let out a whining sound. He referred to Princess Leia as Mom. T-2LC also seemed to be naive and was shocked to find a listening device attached to his face. Elsie had a gleaming face.[1]
