Dathcha was a male Jawa adventurer and trader who served as lead scout under the leadership of Chief Nebit.




Dathcha was famous for taunting a krayt dragon and living to tell the tale. Dathcha wanted to leave Tatooine and explore the galaxy. At some point he stole Wuher's EPT-212 droid detector, because he didn't like his "no droids" policy. However, Wuher had hired a spacer to return it, who confronted Dathcha in the Dune Sea and took the detector off him after knocking him unconscious.[2]

In 0 BBY he shot R2-D2 in the Jundland Wastes. He was accompanied by his nephew Enjikket. His entire clan was slaughtered by stormtroopers who were searching for the droids they had recently sold.[1]

Behind the scenesEdit

Dathcha was portrayed by Hal Wamsley in Star Wars: Episode IV A New Hope, but his role was not listed in the end credits.
