Nebit was a Jawa Chief. He was his tribe's main negotiator, and a leader responsible for organizing raids on rival tribes.


Nebit dealing with Owen Lars.

Nebit's tribe captured droids for trading, and his sandcrawler boasted a large stock of varied makes and models at the time they carried the droids C-3PO and R2-D2, who were fugitives from the Empire. His tribe sold the droid counterparts to Owen Lars, the uncle of Luke Skywalker, future Rebel Alliance hero and Jedi Knight.[1] While negotiating with Lars, Nebit adopted a Jawa "business dialect".

Nebit and his tribe later suffered the destruction dealt out on his sandcrawler by Imperial sandtroopers, when the fugitives C-3PO and R2-D2 were traced there. Most of Nebit's tribe were murdered in this event. Nebit died with them.[1]
