Jawas

Updated on November 29, 2009

The Jawas

The Jawas are desert living creatures that live a life of being nomadic scavengers and traders on the planet of Tatooine.  They were made famous in the Star Wars movie, A New Hope.

Jawas stand approximately one meter and are known for wearing brown robes covering their faces, with only their glowing eyes gleaming out.

Jawas Wookiepedia

"I can't abide those Jawas! Disgusting creatures!"

"C-3PO"

Jawas were typically short humanoid natives of Tatooine. They were 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. Another tribe of Jawas, led by Tteel Kkak, found Jabba the Hutt's rancor. They had a reputation for swindling, as they had a penchant for selling old equipment such as outdated droids to moisture farmers, but they were passive beings, and hardly put up any resistance to colonists of their planet unlike the other natives the Sand People, instead seeing them as an excellent business opportunity.
