K3-R5, more commonly referred to as "Curse", saw her first battle in the space above Coruscant in the final days of the Clone Wars. Not that she remembers this. After the battle she was picked up by scavengers picking the bones of the Republic and Separatist fleets and sold to a ship garage on the planet below. Her new owner wiped her memory and reprogrammed her to be a repair droid, much like her model was originally designed to be. Unfortunately this reprograming didn't seem to stick, as Curse would often end up breaking whatever she was tasked to repair even worse, thus earning her nickname. She quickly fell into a routine of being sold, breaking things repeatedly, and being sold again, moving down a line of gullible fools who were scammed out of their credits. Many years later she would fall into the hands of a pod racer who recognized what she was and decided to use her for his own gains. Set back to her original programing she was put to work fixing races by sabotaging the competition, finally finding her calling. This too came to an end though, as her owner ran afoul of the Five Syndicates and was killed. Since losing her last owner Curse has spent her days stowing away on ships traveling the galaxy, causing havoc whenever she can.
Many would view Curse as defective, or at the very least quirky. She knows that she is just fulfilling her purpose: ruining peoples' days. She displays an almost sociopathic personality, expressing a cheery and upbeat attitude while privately breaking or damaging other peoples' property whenever the opportunity presents itself. Having not suffered a memory wipe in several years she has developed mannerisms to help her avoid being destroyed by people. She knows when to pass herself off as a friendly repair droid and when to start dismantling things. In some cases when she finds an organic she likes enough she even chooses to refrain from destroying their stuff.
While originally being programmed to speak the Colicoid language, at some point one of her owners rewired Curse to be able to speak and understand the more standard binary used by most droids. She also delights in insulting organics that don't understand droidspeak. She functions passably as a repair droid, able to reach many spots too small for larger droids and organics and possessing an in depth knowledge of many forms of starcraft. She only begrudgingly accepts this role though, as she is much more comfortable dismantling things. She is useful in combat against droids, able to move quickly and reach weak spots to disable them. She could also potentially do decent damage to organic targets as well, though she prefers fleeing to fighting when given a choice. She is able to operate just as well in space as on the ground, and her outer shell serves as respectable protection against dangerous environments and assailants. Her computer interface probe allows her to hack into many different electronic systems, and because of her background sabotaging pod racers subtly she has learned how to be a remarkably stealthy machine, allowing her to spy on just about anyone she is ordered to with excellent results.
