Uli-ah Gafsa was a Jawa that was found by a Sand Person storyteller in the aftermath of a sandstorm. He was raised by the old storyteller as a member of the Sand People. Uli-ah soon learned the stories of the Gafsa Tribe and surpassed his adoptive father, meaning that it was time to make a story of his own. However, his unique circumstances prompted him to have a difficult "Koroght Argg Ur'uli-ah," or "Blessing of the Adolescents." It meant that he must surpass all others in the tribe by doing more than any of them combined. He had to leave Tatooine and travel amongst the stars. He did indeed leave Tatooine and seen many stars in his travels.
Gafsa fell into a life of crime, and would in time come to lead the Elipsis pirate syndicate. Under Gafsa's leadership it came to be known asTwin Suns, a nod to his homeworld. Gafsa was a very notable and successful pirate, which often made him the target of governments, mercenaries, and former victims. In Year 15, Uli-ah Gafsa was killed in a firefight with Seth Haze, who had been tasked with arresting Gafsa by Alliance Special Operations. Haze claimed he acted in self-defense and was never charged.
Uli-ah Gafsa never forgot his people or his homeworld. Outside of pirating, he was very active in the Jawa diaspora community and helped fund efforts to educate the galaxy about Jawa language and culture. His most successful venture was beginning the Jawa Swap Meet. This gathering was modeled after the swap meets on his homeworld, and what began as an effort to unite all Jawas who had left Tattooine quickly attracted the attention of merchants from across the galaxy. Friends of Uli-ah sought to honor his memory by rebranding the meet as the Uli-ah Gafsa Memorial Swap Meet, which is still held year after year.
