BB-8 is a BB unit astromech droid who operated approximately thirty years after the Battle of Endor. It had a dome head, similar to that of R2 series astromech droids, with the bulk of its body made up of a ball that the droid’s head rolled on. BB-8 was mostly white, with some silver and orange on its body, as well as a black photoreceptor. The droid belonged to Resistance pilot Poe Dameron, whom he accompanied during his flights on his a T-70 X-wing fighter.
A skittish but loyal astromech, BB-8’s manifest personality was somewhat of an unpredictable one. While most droids are predictable to certain stereotypes (bossy, sullen, grumpy) within their respective programming, BB-8 was his own case. He is sometimes childlike, sometimes precocious. In fact, Dameron sometimes wondered if the droid daydreamed. All of BB-8’s equipment is stored in compartments within the ball his head rolled on.
