Designed to disguise themselves as Protocol Droids to lull targets into a false sense of security, HK-Series Assassin Droids represent one of the deadliest innovations in Droid technology of this time. The Czerka Corporation's first major success in Assassin-Droid production came with the release of the HK-24 Assassin Droid, which the company hoped to sell in large quantities to the Republic and planetary governments during the run-up to The Mandalorian Wars. Many HK-24 Assassin Droids are purchased by Lord Adasca to hunt down one of his former employees hiding on Taris. Even with red armor plating and glowing orange eyes, the HK-24 appears, to the untrained eye, to be nothing more than a slightly sinister-looking servant Droid. Unfortunately, the Czerka Corporation never finds success with the HK-24 (Since most people in the galaxy have no use for an Assassin Droid), and soon their factories are shut down and abandoned. 

HK-24 Assassin Droids can't be played as Droid Heroes.
