Description: Tusken Raider, Female
Prefix: DZ
Detachment: Krayt Clan
Context: Star Wars Episode II: Attack of the Clones
Fearsome desert savages inhabiting the rocky Jundland Wastes, Tusken Raiders are the foremost reason Tatooine colonists do not wander far from their isolated communities. Extremely territorial and xenophobic, Tusken Raiders will attack with very little provocation. They show no allegiance to even their native world-mates, as these nomads have attacked Jawa scouting parties on occasion. Covered from head-to-foot in tattered rags and robes, The weapons of choice for the Tusken Raiders -- or Sand People as they are also known -- include a deadly bladed club known as a gaderffii. They also carry projectile rifles with which to shoot at passing vehicles. The female of the species tend to be the clan caregivers and maintain the encampments.
