this was the name used by a group of protocol droids that were the property of Popara the Hutt. The droids shared information updates on a regular basis, allowing them to work separately yet coordinate their activities. For instance, H-3POA was provided to Vago for use in negotiating deals with other beings. H-3POB served aboard Popara's personal starship, the Imru Ootmian. In general, H-3PO droids were unique from other 3PO-series protocol droids in that their access systems were programmed to accept a verbal signal from a specific individual. They also had enhanced sensors and communications systems, and often were created with self-destruct mechanisms.
