The Fairfolk were a race that resembled ethereal, floating Jawas. They were strong in the Force and a number of them working for Darth Vader on Dantooine attempted to sway an oblivious Luke Skywalker to the dark side by setting up a psychic link between Skywalker and Vader, who was stationed on board the Star Destroyer Conqueror. The arrival of Leia Organa freed Luke from the Fairfolk's trance.
