The Jawas are a pygmy rodent-like race inhabiting the desert planet of Tatooine. Also are hardworking people who work as scavengers and tinkers, picking up discarded or broken machinery and fixing it up for sale. Being bald and pale; entirely covered in red or brown cloaks and their glowing yellow eyes are the only body parts visible. 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. Additionally, Jawas belong to clans. Half of the clan works in the sandcrawlers. 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.
