Bridge Over The River Jawa
This 1929 photograph shows two men in upstate California posing for a photograph with two Jawas and a sandcrawler crossing the bridge overhead. This is the first actual photograph of a Jawa identified by ISWWR investigators!
Most Jawas were about 1 meter tall, though some grew to 1 and a half meters, and were characterized by their brown robes, glowing yellow eyes, and quickly spoken language called Jawaese.
Through the study of corpses and skeletal remains, xenobiologists discovered that Jawas appeared to be gaunt, rodent-like creatures, with shrunken faces and yellow eyes. Jawa faces were obscured by a shroud of cloth to retain moisture, with polished, orange gemstones embedded in the fabric. These gems protected the Jawas' sensitive vision from the bright sunlight. Their particular smell came from a mysterious solution into which Jawas dip their clothes to retain moisture. To Jawas, the odor was packed with information about each other, such as clan lineage, health, emotional state, even the last meal eaten. This odor also attracted swarms of insects that gathered in the recesses of their hoods. Jawas had several survival traits, such as exceptional night vision, a strong immune system, and an efficient digestive system that drew all the needed nutrients from the Jawa staple diet of hubba gourd. Their average body temperature was 45ºC (112 F).
They were often scavengers, seeking out technology for sale or trade in the deep deserts in their huge sandcrawler transports. As the story goes, a band of Jawas was responsible for locating C-3PO and R2-D2 and selling them to Luke Skywalker's uncle Owen Lars. Apparently, 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 They had a reputation for swindling, as they had a penchant for selling old equipment such as outdated droids to moisture farmers, but they were passive beings, and hardly put up any resistance to colonists of their planet, instead seeing them as an excellent business opportunity.
Sandcrawlers have been identified by ISWWR investigators before, for what purpose is uncertain. Being the scavengers they are, the Jawas may have found a resource on earth that the majority of mankind has yet to realize.
Some have speculated that individuals who often walk beaches and through the woods with metal detectors are in on the secret. A theory also exists that those people are actually Jawas in disguise! If you see a person "metal detecting" look closely - for you may find something much more interesting than old coins or bottle caps!
For what purpose Jawas would come to earth and scavenge the land has yet to be discovered and so the investigation into the mysterious Jawa treasure continues…
