Day 15 of 365: Jawa

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 They had a reputation for swindling, as they had a penchant for selling old equipment such as outdated droids to moisture farmers, but they were passive beings, and hardly put up any resistance to colonists of their planet unlike the other natives the Sand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.

On a side note, I own around a dozen of the Jawa figures that Burger King gave out a few years back. When you squeeze them their eyes light up and it is adorable. A year later I squeezed an actor who played at Jawa at a convention and he kicked me in the dick. Passive being, my ass.
