If you're looking for the true lead characters of Star Wars, look no further than C-3PO and R2-D2. Together they're one of fiction's greatest duos, and the real POV characters of the franchise. Let's take a look at the saga from their point of view.

R2-D2 came from the planet Naboo, where he was one of several nearly identical astromech droids stationed on Queen Padmé Amidala's royal starship. When the Jedi Qui-Gon Jinn and his apprentice Obi-Wan Kenobi helped the Queen escape from captivity during a blockade by the Trade Federation, the starship was fired upon by ships hoping to recapture Amidala. A bunch of droids, including R2-D2, exited the ship to make repairs from the outside. While several other droids were blown off the ship and destroyed, R2 survived and made the repairs that enabled the ship to escape. He was personally thanked by the Queen, and from that point on served her more directly.

When Amidala's ship stopped on the planet Tatooine, they met C-3PO, a protocol droid that lacked his outer casing, which made him look like a metal skeleton covered in wire. Young Anakin Skywalker claimed that he had built C-3PO himself, although C-3PO's databanks had already existed, and his body was a wreck until Anakin reconstructed him from spare parts. When Qui-Gon saw Anakin's potential to become a Jedi, he won the boy's freedom from the junk dealer named Watto who had enslaved him and his mother, Shmi, but she and C-3PO were forced to stay behind.

When Padmé Amidala's term as Queen of Naboo ended, she became a Senator. R2-D2 joined her on Coruscant, the Galactic Capital, where the droid helped Obi-Wan Kenobi and a grown-up Anakin Skywalker foil an assassination attempt on Padmé's life. This led Anakin to take her into hiding off-planet, bringing R2-D2 along, but when Anakin began having visions of his mother in peril, the trio returned to Tatooine. There, they were reunited with C-3PO, who now had a rusty metal covering that made him look more like a typical protocol droid. They also learned that Shmi Skywalker had been freed from slavery by a man named Cliegg Lars, who became her husband.
