Watto was a maleToydarian junk dealer/human trafficker, who owned a shop in Mos Espa, Tatooine. In his youth, he served as a soldier in the Ossiki Confederacy Army on his homeworld of Toydaria, but later left after sustaining permanently damaging injuries. Making his way to Tatooine, he fell in with the Jawa
natives of the planet, and learned how to trade from them. Once he felt
he had learned all he could, he abandoned the Jawas, and set up Watto's
Shop in Mos Espa. He became one of Tatooine's many slave owners, and
made a lucrative business for himself. Eventually, he came into
possession of a young slave, Anakin Skywalker, who proved to be a gifted mechanic, and an invaluable asset to the running of the store.
