IG-101 was an IG-100 Magnaguard painted blue and was used by General Grievous during the Battle of Coruscant. He was ordered by the General to kill two jedi; Obi-Wan and Anakin Skywalker. IG-101 started out by helping IG-102, a fellow Magnaguard, try and destroy Skywalker but would later face Obi-Wan after Skywalker proved to powerful. IG-101 attacked Obi-Wan, but soon had his head cut off by the Jedi. Little did the Jedi know, that a MagnaGuard can still fight without their heads and instead switch to a second "eye" on its chest. Due to this, IG-101 was able to continue fighting Obi-Wan but no for long, because the Jedi was able to overpower the droid and cut it to bits.
Droid Design Edit
IG-101 was an standard IG-100 Magnaguard unit, but like IG-102, had advanced training with General Grievous and was equipped with an electrostaff. He had some blue markings on his body, that allowed him to stand out from the other magnaguards, along with this, he had a cape and hood.
