Jawas are short humanoid natives of Tatooine. Often scavengers, seeking out technology for sale or trade in the deep deserts in their huge sandcrawler transports. A band of Jawas was responsible for locating C-3PO and R2-D2 and selling them to Luke Skywalker's uncle Owen Lars.

Physiology and Culture

Many Jawas were about 1 meter tall, and were characterized by their brown robes, yellow eyes, and quickly spoken language called Jawaese that included words such as "Utinni!" They were rodent-like in appearance, usually obscured by a shroud of cloth.

Their particular stench, which most other species found repugnant, was because of a mysterious solution into which Jawas dip their clothes to retain moisture. To Jawas, the odor was packed with information about each other, such as clan lineage, health, emotional state, even the last meal eaten. Jawas also evolved several important survival traits, such as exceptional night vision, a strong immune system, and an efficient digestive system.

Jawas had long been scavengers, as the Dune Sea provided a bounty of refuse. It was littered with spacecraft wreckage from millennia of star travel. The Jawas built homes and tools from these ancient scraps, and traveled the dunes in sandcrawlers, cast-off mobile smelters from failed outlander mining attempts. Jawas lived in clans, each with distinct territories for living and scavenging. In most Jawa clans, half the clan worked and lived in the sandcrawlers while the other family units dwelled in fortresses deep in the desert where collected wares were stored.

Role in LotJ

Jawa are opportunistic and cowardly. They are widely known as thieves and swindlers. Jawa are proud of their ability to scavage useless junk and make it work, for a little while anyway.

Jawa rarely leave Tatooine and those who do almost always become involved in nefarious activities.

Jawas can understand Galactic Basic but cannot speak the language due to vocal cord limitations.
