The Junkers are the native species of the junk planet of Lotho Minor. They have inhabited the planet for centuries, and are armed with usually a blaster rifle or anything that is "salvageable".
The native origin of the Junkers is unknown, but it is known that they were scavengers who searched for scrap metals and wore cybernetics to replace several body parts.
Around 21 BBY, a tribe of Junkers ambushed Morley and Savage Oppress, but failed after Savage and Morley defeated them and forced the remaining to retreat. There were also dead Junkers hung in Darth Maul's lair. in 2 ABY beings known as "junkers" were present on an artificial Ship graveyard planetoid attempting to salvage the damaged luxury liner Reverie.
