W1-LE was Lando’s personal attendant droid, whom he had owned since the time of the Clone Wars. The droid once had a different body type but his master transferred his logic unit into another protocol droid at some point prior to the Siege of Lothal.
During the Siege of Lothal W1-LE, under the instructions of Lando, helped the Ghost Crew to escape the Imperial blockade around Lothal. In return for giving him three of their stolen shield generators, the rebels traveled to Lando's Farm in a stolen Imperial shuttle to rendezvous with W1-LE, who would assist them. With the aid of Sabine Wren, W1-LE created sensor buoys that would replicate the signal of the shuttle and scatter Imperial forces when they tried to track them. This plan worked and the rebels escaped the Imperial blockade and rejoined the Rebel Fleet in deep space.
