Holowan Laboratories was a division of Holowan that manufactured droids during the Clone Wars and the Imperial Era.

History[]

Following the Clone Warsresolution, before which the destructive galaxy-wide conflict fought between the forces of the Galactic Republic and Confederacy of Independent Systems was partly fueled by their droid and arms products,[4] Holowan Laboratories was able to bypass the Galactic Empire‘s ban on the production of battle droids by reclassifying their products as security droids.[6] The company also took on Project Phlutdroid.[2]

Products[]

Holowan Laboratories developed and manufactured the IG-series of droids active during the Clone Wars,[4] including the IG-100 MagnaGuard—fielded by the Separatist Droid Army[7]—the IG-86 sentinel droid, and the IG-RM bodyguard and enforcer droid[3] In addition, Holowan Laboratories manufactured the rogue assassin droid IG-88, who operated as a bounty hunter during the Galactic Civil War waged between the reigning Galactic Empire and the Alliance to Restore the Republic.[4]

Behind the scenes[]

Holowan Laboratories was first mentioned in the new Star Wars canon in Star Wars Rebels: The Visual Guide, a reference book written by Adam Bray and released in 2014.[3] It first appeared in the 1996 Star Wars Legends story “Therefore I Am: The Tale of IG-88,” written by author Kevin J. Anderson.[8]

Holowan Laboratories was incorrectly identified as Halowan Laboratories in the 2014 young readers book Star Wars Rebels: Head to Head, written by Pablo Hidalgo.[6]
