4-A7 was the first RA-7 Protocol Droid created and was given to the CIS to test its skills. The Confederate leader, Count Dooku, gave this droid to his padawan, Asajj Ventress, who believed the droid was her only friend. During the Clone Wars, Asajj used 4-A7 to trick Jabba the Hutt into thinking the his son was kidnapped by the Jedi. This plan worked, and Jabba was about ready to join the CIS. Later, a clone battalion was sent to the planet were 4-A7 and Asajj were hiding at and tried to stop the Republic troops from escaping the planet with B1-Battle Droids and B2 Super Battle Droids, but they failed and during the battle, 4-A7 was attacked by Jedi padawan, Ahsoka Tano, who sliced the droid's head off with her lightsaber. 4-A7's body was later taken to the Jedi Temple on Coruscant so the Jedi could try and unlock the secrets that were hidden in the droid's databanks.
