GO-TO was a droid built by the Republic to aid in it's recovery effort. It had two main directives. One, to find ways to rebuild the Republic, and two, to follow all laws of the Republic. After awhile the droid realized that it couldn't rebuild the Republic without breaking the law. He then began to build the smuggling ring on Nar Shaddaa. He knew that no one would believe that a droid was running an operation so large so he used his projector to create an image for himself. The ruse was so effective that few, if any realized that a droid was running the largest smuggling ring in the galaxy.
