C-3PO (nicknamed Threepio) is a fictional character                                 
from the Star Wars universe, who appears in both the original Star Wars films       
and the prequel trilogy. He is also a major character in the television show         
Star Wars: Droids, and appears frequently in the series' "Expanded Universe" of     
novels, comic books, and video games. C-3PO is one of the four characters to         
appear in all six of the Star Wars feature films, and the only one to be played     
six times by the same actor. In all his various appearances, he is portrayed by     
Anthony Daniels.                                                                     
C-3PO is a protocol droid designed to serve humans, and boasts that he is fluent     
"in over six million forms of communication." C-3PO is generally seen with his       
long-time counterpart, R2-D2, a small, quirky astromech droid. Threepio's main       
function as a protocol droid is to assist with etiquette, customs, and               
translation so that meetings of different cultures run smoothly. In his time, C-3PO 
loyally served over forty masters. He hated adventure and space travel, as they     
often resulted in him coming out on the wrong end of a fight, losing parts, and     
having them reattached, sometimes incorrectly. Together with his fellow droid R2,   
Threepio played a vital and pivotal role in the Galaxy's history, however lowly     
he thought of himself.
