You see a group of short cloaked figures with glowing orange eyes searching for salvage.

Jawas are a scavenger race of the desert and frequently look for salvageable materials that can be bartered. A jawa is 2-3 feet tall and weighs 30-40 pounds. Jawas speak baeran at a very rapid rate that can make them difficult to understand. Jawas age as humans do.

Combat Edit

Jawas are very passive creatures who attempt to flee from combat at the first opportunity.

Light Sensitivity (Ex): Jawas are dazzled in bright sunlight or within the radius of a daylight spell.

Stench (Ex): Jawas exude an odor that causes them to take a -2 penalty on diplomacy (-4 against creatures with scent) checks with non-jawas capable of smelling them. However, Jawas gain a +2 bonus on diplomacy checks and a -2 penalty on bluff checks with other jawas because of the ability for other jawas to interpret this odor.

Jawa Traits (Ex): Jawas possess the following racial traits.

/-4 Strength, +2 Dexterity, +2 Intelligence, -2 Charisma
/Small size. +1 bonus to Armor Class, +1 bonus on attack rolls, +4 bonus on Hide checks, -4 penalty on grapple checks, lifting and carrying limits ¾ those of Medium characters.
/A jawa’s base land speed is 20 feet.
/Darkvision out to 60 ft.
/+2 racial bonus on fortitude saves against disease and poison.
/Racial Skills: A jawa character has a +2 racial bonus on Knowledge (Mechanics), Search, and Use Mechanical Device checks.
/Jawas only require half as much food as normal for a creature of small size.
/Automatic Languages: Baeran. Bonus Languages: Any (other than secret languages, such as Druidic).
/Favored Class: Engineer

The jawa expert presented here had the following ability scores before racial adjustments: Str 10, Dex 11, Con 12, Int 13, Wis 9, Cha 8.

NOTE: This jawa is a scavenger, barterer's usually have a higher charisma score and ranks in diplomacy/appraise. NOTE2: This monster is campaign specific. For a more general version you may change the language to jawaese or something else, the bonuses to Knowledge (Architecture and Engineering) and Survival, and the favored class to Rogue.
