―A common Jawa word.

Jawas are a race of desert-dwelling rodents well-known for the shrewd business sense. They are often seen as scavengers and are generally looked down upon by many other species. Their main diet consists of Hubba Gourds.

Physical Description Edit

Jawas are mouse-like creatures from the Star Wars desert world Tatooine. They cover themselves in red robes, and stand approximately 4'3" tall. They have glowing, almost "cute" eyes, which are yellow in colour and egg-shaped. Most Jawas' faces are not visible except for the eyes. In the Star Wars novels, they are described as filthy creatures; they are constantly hounded by swarms of flies and their homes smell awful.

The Tusken Raiders are related to them because they are both descendants of the Kumumgah, a species that was wiped out by the Rakata, so some evolved to be small and some became tall, giving birth to the Jawa and Tusken Raider respectively.
