KX-series Security Droid K-2SO (Kay-Too-Ess-Oh) Funko POP
From Star Wars, K-2SO (Kay-Too-Ess-Oh), as a stylized vinyl Funko POP. K-2SO, abbreviated K-2 (Kay-Tu or Kaytoo) or Kay, was a KX-series security droid originally created for use in the Galactic Empire‘s armed forces. At some point, the droid encountered Captain Cassian Andor, a member of the resistance movement, known as the Rebel Alliance, that sought to overthrow the Empire and restore democracy to the galaxy. Andor was able to reprogram K-2SO to serve the Alliance on the planet Wecacoe. In 0 BBY, K-2SO participated in the Battle of Scarif, where he sacrificed himself so that Andor and Jyn Erso could steal the plans to the Empire’s moon-sized battle station, the Death Star. K-2SO was one of the KX-series security droids assigned to the Imperial Stormtrooper detachment on the planet Wecacoe. K-2SO heard a noise near a decommissioned Imperial cruiser. There he encountered Rebel agent Cassian Andor and arrested him. K-2SO and Andor then fought each other until Kertas and Rismor found his kill switch. Cassian then attempted to wipe K-2SO’s memory clean. However, only 29.73% of K-2SO’s memory had been erased, and he then strangled Cassian. Kertas and Rismor were able to turn him off again. Cassian gave K-2 new orders to lead him, Kertas, and Rismor back to their ship. K-2 stated he would “take out” anyone who interfered with them. He escorted Cassian and the twins as his prisoners, but came under attack by several stormtroopers.
He, the twins, and Cassian attacked the troopers. As the K-2SO’s group got to their vehicle, stormtroopers surrounded it, and K-2 attempted to arrest Andor again. As Rismor drew the troops away, Kertas told Cassian to take K-2SO because he had the intel they needed. After Cassian’s ship was destroyed, K-2 still had 8.3% of his memory and tried to decide to either terminate or arrest Cassian. Cassian removed the base layer of his programming and shut him down. K-2 turned on and took out the stormtroopers. K-2 and Andor then found a ship. Together, they made their escape. While most KX-series droids were effectively emotionless drones, minor errors and glitches in K-2SO‘s reprogramming led to the development of a fully self-aware personality, he was cynical, prone to sarcasm, and stoic, often mentioning that he had calculated the poor odds of success in any given situation (which Andor would then refuse to hear). His sarcasm extended to the point where he would disobey minor orders and prove his ability in given missions, as seen on Jedha. He was fairly independent and frequently disobeyed orders he felt were counterproductive, scolding his organic compatriots for ignoring his advice. He genuinely regarded Andor as a friend, however, felt no hesitation in sacrificing himself in order to protect him and Jyn Erso during their mission to steal the plans to the Death Star.
