HK-series assassin droid
- "This HK-series assassin droid achieved infamy just before the Jedi Civil War. Although outwardly resembling a Systech Corporation unit, he was actually built by Darth Revan as a method of silencing political opponents. HK-47 has had many masters besides Revan, as well–corporate figures, crime lords, Hutts and Mandalorians–who have tried to harness his assassination protocols, usually with disastrous results. Three centuries ago, after being found and repaired by the Jedi Exile, HK-47 helped defeat the Sith Triumvirate. After the fighting ended, he was kept in trust by the re-formed Jedi Order, much to his dismay; with the galaxy still in turmoil, the Jedi were concerned that HK-47 would start “helpfully” removing troublesome individuals. Then, during routine maintenance, an engineer accidentally activated an unknown command in HK-47′s systems. Soon after, the droid disappeared from Jedi custody and left for deep space. The Jedi’s records claim that HK-47 has been destroyed and rebuilt several times since his creation. Darth Malgus’s agents are said to have recently recovered HK-47′s components from a mysterious facility built into an asteroid. Now reassembled and upgraded, HK-47 has become one of Darth Malgus’s most formidable weapons."

HK-47 was a Hunter-Killer-series assassin droid built by Darth Revan at the beginning of the Jedi Civil War and eventually became a Jedi Hunter. HK-47 specialized in assassinations and repeatedly moved around the galaxy, doing Revan's bidding, assassinating countless targets Revan considered a threat. HK-47 was badly damaged on a mission in Mandalorian space and was captured just as Revan was captured by the Jedi Order. After Revan left to unknown regions HK-47 was somehow damaged by "several blaster shots." and locked in the storage hold, all of his core parts went missing across the galaxy leaving Meetra Surik, who found HK locked in the Ebon Hawk's storage hold; to find the pieces of the puzzle to bring back HK.
HistoryHK-47's memory core was damaged and caused him to forget his master, Revan, and he went from master to master, many of whom were "unfortunately" killed by this curious droid. After having many owners he ended up on Tatooine and was coincidentally sold to his old master, Revan, whose memory was also erased.
When the amnesiac Revan found out his true identity as the former Dark Lord of the Sith, HK-47 began to remember his first and original master, Revan.
HK-47 aided Revan to find and destroy an ancient factory The Star Forge, built by the Rakatan Infinite Empire, which can produce unlimited amount of starcruisers and war droids. HK-47 was also key into defeating Revan's old Sith Apprentice, Darth Malak, and was awarded the Cross of Glory from Admiral Forn Dodonna.
- "Statement: We could start by slaughtering the inhabitants of this building. Would that be impressive, master?"
- "Statement: Indeed, I am most eager to engage in some unadulterated violence. At your command of course, Master."
- "Expletive: Damn it, Master, I am an assassination droid... not a dictionary!"
- "Query: This "meatbag" is an incoherent babble of useless information. Can I shoot him?"
- "Query: What is it that you wish, fat one?"
- "Statement: HK-47 is ready to serve, master.''
- "Commentary: That's the way to tell the meatbags, master! Charging weapons, just in case. This should be fun!"
- "Objection: This unit is not for sale, meatbag."
- "Query: Is there someone you need killed, master?"
