Hobin Carsamba was an alien who worked as a scavenger on the planet Jakku in 34 ABY. Carsamba once joined a queue to trade with the junk dealer Unkar Plutt in Niima Outpost while the scavenger Rey dealt with Plutt at the front of the line. The next day, Carsamba was still in Niima when it was attacked by the forces of the First Order.
Hobin Carsamba was an alien scavenger who made a living on the desert planet of Jakku. In the year 34 ABY, Carsamba was present in Niima Outpost, a Jakku trading settlement run by the Crolute junk dealer Unkar Plutt.
Having salvaged junk to trade, Carsamba once joined the line of customers waiting to deal with Plutt at his Concession Stand while the scavenger Rey was dealing with Plutt at the front of the line. Carsamba fell into position between the pet seller and storyteller Bobbajo and another humanoid scavenger at the end of the line.
Carsamba was in Niima again the next day and, while heading away from Plutt's stand, passed Rey as she arrived with the Resistance astromech droid BB-8 on her speeder. Carsamba was still present later that day when Niima was attacked by the forces of the First Order in their search for BB-8. Rey, BB-8, and the First Order deserter Finn fled past Carsamba through a number of Niima's marquees while trying to escape from pursuing stormtroopers.
