C-3PO was a droid designed and created by Anakin Skywalker, when he was still a slave who lived in the Outer Rim of Tatooine, to interact with organics, and programmed mainly to execute protocols and good etiquette. C-3PO could communicate in over 7 million forms of communication, making him a very valuable asset. He somehow developed an anxious and worrisome character (that we all love) over the years of operation. He is somehow always in the right place at the right time, being a part of historical events with his partner R2-D2, especially in events that concern The Alliance.
Before they became involved with The Alliance, the pair served Bail Organa for 19 years, as they were assigned to the Alderaan cruiser, Tantive IV. After their service with Bail, they get involved in the events that lead to the Galactic Civil War, and the war itself. A significant role they played was delivering the copy of the Death Star plans handed to them by Princess Leia, to Obi-Wan Kenobi, enabling Luke Skywalker to destroy the Superweapon with the help of Han Solo.
The pair assisted Han and Luke in rescuing Princess Leia, and became especially attached to the three of them. They continue to help them and The Alliance fight the Galactic Empire, and managed to convince the Ewoks to fight with the Alliance during the Battle of Endor. After the Battle of Endor, C-3PO continued serving Luke, Leia, and Han set up the New Republic. He continues to serve Leia 3 decades later, as she becomes a General in The Resistance.
