Known as scavengers and travelling merchants, Jawas are a species of short humanoids native to the planet Tatooine. Their society is comprised of various tribes that travel the desert, many in massive sandcrawlers salvaged from failed mining efforts.  

Jawas have a complex language that also incorporates scent, so many species find it difficult to master. Not to let a hurdle like that stand in the way of a good deal, the Jawas have also developed a trade tongue for the purposes of conducting business. Both of these are good things to keep in mind when designing names!

Good Jawa Names

A good Jawa name should be complex and hard to pronounce, to suggest the complexity of the Jawa language. Harsh sounds and unusual letter combinations are a good starting point.

Avafus Tloser

Avafus is the Jawa to see if you need parts for pod racing. Of course, convincing her to part with them is easier said than done. She fully intends to build herself a working racer and win big someday. The trick to trading with her is to offer her a part she needs for one she has two or more of.
