The Jawas are a pygmy and rodentlike race inhabiting the desert planet Tatooine. They are a hardworking people that work as scavengers and tinkerers, picking up discarded/broken machinery and fixing it up for sale.Being bald and pale, they are entirely covered in red or brown cloaks and their glowing yellow eyes are the only body parts visible. However, they do appear to have hairy arms in Episode IV. For transport on the desert world, they use long-abandoned mining Sandcrawlers. These lumbering giants can house a family unit as well as store cargo that they have collected on their journeys. Jawas belong to clans. Half of the clan work in the sandcrawlers while the other half live in desert fortresses in remote areas. These fortresses have high walls made from large chunks of old wrecked spaceships for protection against Tusken Raiders and krayt dragons. They also serve as a home for the rest of the Jawa clan which store the wealth gathered by the other family unit in the sandcrawlers. They appear in Star Wars: The Force Unleashed as enemies using Grenades and a Laser Pickaxe. They are usually 1m to 1.5m tall (between three and five feet).
Jawas also employ a variable language. This means that almost no other species can understand their language, due to the fact that any given word can have more than four different meanings.
