"Why are the Tusken Raiders attacking Mos Eisley?"
"An excellent question, but I don't know the answer. There's a soldier named Purvis Arrison looking into it."
―A spacer and Mayor Mikdanyell Guh'rantt[src]

Purvis Arrison was a male Human soldier who lived on Tatooine during the Galactic Civil War.


"Don't fool yourself, we are at war. The Tusken Raiders are ready to take this city, and I won't let that happen. I won't let you let that happen either."
―Purvis Arrison, to a spacer[src]

By the time of the Battle of Yavin, Purvis Arrison was a veteran professional marksman. He sill worked in Mos Eisley, under the orders of Mayor Mikdanyell Guh'rantt. Arrison war very concerned about Tusken Raider gathering in Junktown, a small village just outside of Mos Eisley.[1] Circa 1 ABY,[2] he managed to get an individual to deal with the problem. While affiliated with Jabba the Hutt's criminal organizarion, the spacer acted on behalf of the Mayor Mikdanyell Guh'rantt. The spacer eliminated a number of Tusken Raiders in Junktown, preventing them to raid Mos Eisley and making Purvis Arrison very satisfied.[1]
