Jawas are a fictional race within the Star Wars Universe. Relatively tiny in appearence, Jawas are always wearing tiny hooded robes so that their faces are hidden. Highly adept at scavenging the galaxy for unwanted or damaged electrical devices, the Jawa find R2-D2 and C-3PO after they escape from the Tantive IV just in time to evade Darth Vader.
The Jawa carry electrical stun guns that are able to short circuit any unruly Droids. A relatively docile race, the Jawas who trade and livewon Tatooine are butchered by Storm Troopers who are searching for R2-D2.
