Beginnings on Tatooine
Ubwi Jukaqez would be born during the storm season of Tatooine, enclosed in his clans fortress, surrounded by his elders for months. Having a relatively small stature, he would be overlooked by his mother, his force ability however, would be noticed at infancy when the clan Shaman felt a connection through the force as a result, he would make the transition within the clan to the Shaman custody. Ultimately he would be blessed by the Shaman and instead of being destined to be a scavenger he would be somewhat of the Shaman’s voice during the annual swap meets if she could not attend, however when she did, Ubwi was to remain by her side at all times. He would only see freedom from the Shaman on rare occasions.
Ubwi’s first swap-meet would be accompanied by his clan’s Shaman, who would show him the ways of blessing before the storm season as well as blessing marriage, which would be a common occurrence within swap meets. Being only 10 at his first swap meet, Ubwi would be greatly overwhelmed by the long journey to the Dune Sea and the noise that accompanied the main hangar of the sandcrawler, it would be here where he would lock himself in the Shaman’s quarters and conduct ramshackle exercises until he couldn’t handle it anymore. The tight spaces of the sandcrawler would be something that Ubwi held a disdain for, he had forever held a sense that he was meant to be out in the Dune Sea, or out in the Galaxy, searching for junk in mysterious places, adventuring to the waste piles of Coruscant or Lotho Minor. His predetermined life would stop him from fulfilling this aspiration, instead forcing him into a ceremonial role, potentially becoming the chief one day.
The arrival at the swap meets would mean a certain type of freedom for Ubwi. Having the space to roam around the great sands of the Dune Sea, being able to barter and trade with the Shaman. Although the Shaman was with him, he still felt free, as though the desert had saved him. At the end of the fifth day of the swap meet, Ubwi would find himself on one of the overlooking dunes. A great scene of large towering crawlers, glowing sands from the flood lights and fires with surrounding Jawas could be seen. As Ubwi sat there, looking over his kin he felt some kind of energy, a sense of physical bliss overwhelmed him. Soon enough he would close his eyes and allow this energy to take over the young Jedi. A feeling of the cool night breeze graced his hood, fluttering it in the wind, the sand beneath him felt as though it was alive. He was unsure of this feeling, not knowing what it was, but he liked the feeling, it gave him a sense of security, like someone was watching over him. Unbeknownst to him, this was the force. A vision came to him of a sprawling sand city, with large towers and a constant flow of Junk ships. His way out of this life of enclosed space and isolation. Ubwi would return to the Shaman that night and explain to her his vision of this city, she would recognise it as Mos Espa, the capital of Tatooine. The Shaman’s interpretation of the vision would be one of the future of the clan. The clan’s riches would be found in Mos Espa.
As they all do, the swap meet came to an end, Ubwi and his clan would return home for the storm season. The storm season would allow for the Shaman to consult the Jawa Chief, telling him about the riches that they are destined to have in Mos Espa. The Jawa Chief would eventually agree after consulting with tribe leaders and the clans destiny would be found in the city of Mos Espa.
After the long journey to Mos Espa, Ubwi would be restricted even more, now having to stay with the Shaman at all times, almost never leaving the sandcrawlers and going into town. One night however, the doors of the living quarters would be open, Ubwi would seize the opportunity and make the dash. Escaping the sandcrawler and not knowing where to go, the feeling that he had on that overlooking dune at the swap meet, could this be the reason he saw this city? What ever this feeling was, it led him deep into town in the dark of night until he walked straight into a tall man with a large brown cloak and beige robes. Ubwi would see some sort of weapon on the man's belt, it would instantly intrigue him. As the man tried to recuperate, the Jawa unhitched the hilt from the mans belt, allowing for it to land straight into the sand for the Jawa to grab and run, possibly allowing for him to trade it for transport off the planet and to freedom from his Shaman. The man chase the Jawa, eventually cornering him in one of the many alleyways. The man would turn out to be a Jedi Knight returning home to Coruscant. Both Ubwi and the Jedi Knight would recognise this as the will of the force for them to meet. The man offered Ubwi’s passage off of the desert world, to return to Coruscant with him to become a Jedi. Ubwi would feel the same sense of security he felt on the overlooking dune and would agree, allowing for him to break free from his clan. Although he would feel sorrow, Ubwi would see this as an opportunity to bring greatness to his clan.
Beginnings as a Jedi & The Clone Wars
Ubwi’s introduction was not easy, at least when compared to other races of Jedi. The warm flowing sands that he once had known so well were all but stripped from him and replaced by a sprawling city planet. His early career as a Jedi would see him excel at technical tasks, priding himself on his expertise with ships, lightsaber theory and of course anything to do with scrap as this was a feature many believed to be hardwired into every Jawa. The young Jawa would spend most of his time in the tinkerer's workshop, learning how to create his own lightsaber and focusing a great deal of his Jedi education on the ins and outs of vehicles. The break out of the Clone Wars would impact Ubwi greatly, as it would see him in proper combat, something he held little regard for, but also something he recognised the necessity for.
The second battle of Geonosis would be Ubwi’s first proper battle, being assigned to an Armour Battalion with his master, mostly due to their knowledge of machines and the tactics that surrounded them. The hundreds and thousands of droids that lie in the dirt would prove to test Ubwi’s natural temptation, Ubwi would not take a trophy from this battle but a token would be taken from a fallen clone troopers helmet. This token would be a rangefinder fused to a troopers holotags, this would serve to remind Ubwi of the loss the war had caused already.
