Born Survivors: Sand People are raised in the desert and tempered by it, making them capable of surviving in environments far tougher than most species can. This gives them a bonus +2D to all Survival checks.
Dry: The Sand People manage their water use because of the arid environment they come from, only requiring 50% of the water that most species require.
Technological Distrust: Stories from ancient Storytellers of the Tusken speak from a disaster on Tatooine long ago, the Tusken had made there living under the surface of the planet and returned as survivors to the desert. As a result Tusken distrust High-Tech and get a strong survival feeling of unease around it.
Masked: Due to their harsh environment, Tusken Raiders always go masked and robed to save every drop of water. This has become almost religious to them, as they cover themselves at all times and do not show their faces except at very special times such as marriage and child birth.

Description: A male child was a Tusken Raider youngling, and was part of a tribe of Tuskens. The youngling watched over Boba Fett as he was held prisoner by them. Following a skirmish with a Tatooine sand ape, the child brought back the severed head of the creature as a trophy to the acclaim of the tribe.
The male Tusken Raider child lived as part of a Tusken Raider tribe on the desert planet Tatooine. Around 4 ABY, after Boba Fett was captured by Tuskens after his defeat at the Great Pit of Carkoon, the child along with several other Tusken children, beat the bound Fett with sticks. That night, the tied up Fett was left by a fireplace, guarded by a massiff. When Fett attempted to escape, a Rodian prisoner tied up beside Fett alerted the tribe, and the child ran at the escaped captive with his stick. Fett knocked down the Tusken child, refraining from beating the startled Tusken before stealing his stick and running from the camp as other Tuskens arrived. The Tusken Raiders were able to quickly recapture Fett.
The next morning, the child woke up Fett, untying him and the Rodian. He led the prisoners and the massiff across the dunes of Tatooine, tugging Fett as he stumbled to the ground due to how weak he had become. The group reached a homestead, finding it under raid from a group of Kajain'sa'Niktos. Thus the child turned his group around and led them to a separate location to dig for black melons.
Once at the location, the Tusken child ordered Fett and the Rodian prisoner to dig for black melons. The Rodian complied immediately, although Fett had trouble understanding the Tusken's orders. After realizing what the child wanted, Fett proceeded to dig under the watchful eyes of the Tusken and the massiff. Fett attempted to drink from one of the melons, but was promptly stopped by the child, who proceeded to dump the water out for his massiff. Later, as the child slept next to the massiff, both prisoners along with the child were attacked by a Tatooine sand ape that the Rodian prisoner had unburied. The child attempted to fight the creature by stabbing it in the foot with his stick, but was struck by the creature and thrown back, and the Rodian killed. However, before the creature could kill him, Fett used his chains to strangle the creature to death. The youngling shouted in excitement.
Later, the child, Fett, and the massiff returned to the camp with the youngling carrying the severed head of the creature that had attacked them as a trophy, shouting in excitement. He took the trophy to the elders, who gathered around him in excitement as the child acted out the fight. The adult Tuskens congratulated the child with cheers and congratulatory pats.
Following the massacre of his tribe by the Nikto gang known as the Kintan Striders, Fett burned the child's gaffi stick in a bonfire along with the bodies of the massacred Tuskens.
Personality and traits
The youngling was sadistic, favoring pouring water to the ground instead of letting Fett quench his thirst and beating Fett when he was a defenseless prisoner. When Fett drank water from a black melon, the youngling became aggressive and attempted to beat the human with his stick. However, after Fett defeated the Tatooine sand ape and the child returned with its head, he retold the story to the other Tuskens triumphantly.
The youngling wore a dark brown robes which covered his torso, and a tan head wrap covering his face. He also wore tan gloves, dark brown pants and a tube-like accessory around his neck. On his chest, he wore a red pouch and a dirty white towel.
