Arakyd Industries
Basic info
First appearance: Therefore I Am : The Tale of IG-88
Arakyd Industries was a major technology manufacturer, focusing mainly on droids, heavy weapons, and starships. Founded by Veltzz Arakyd on the planet Vulpter during the reign of the Galactic Republic, Arakyd was known for its aggressive and ruthless business strategy. A member of the Techno Union during the Clone Wars, Arakyd supplied the Confederacy of Independent Systems with war materiel whilst also spying on them for the Republic. After the Clone Wars, Arakyd was spared the nationalization that befell the Techno Union, and the company saw a major boost in business with the rise of the Galactic Empire. Having acquired Viper Sensor Intelligence Systems in a hostile takeover and using their propriety technology coupled with artificial intelligence advances, Arakyd developed the Viper probe droid. The droid was instrumental in helping the Empire to locate the Rebel Echo Base on the planet Hoth. Other major Arakyd products included the RA-7 protocol droid, which was used by the Imperial Security Bureau to spy on Imperial personnel; and the XR-85 tank droid, which was used extensively by the Empire during Operation Shadow Hand. Following the collapse of the Empire, Arakyd underwent a change of leadership and began to work closely with the New Republic.
