Hobin Carsamba was an alien who worked as a scavenger on the planet Jakku in 34 ABY. Carsamba joined a queue to deal with the junk dealer Unkar Plutt in Niima Outpost while the scavenger Rey dealt with Plutt at the front of the queue. The next day, Carsamba was still in Niima when it was attacked by the forces of the First Order.
Hobin Carsamba was an alien scavenger who made a living on the desert planet of Jakku. In the year 34 ABY, Carsamba was in Niima Outpost, a Jakku trade outpost run by the Crolute junk dealer Unkar Plutt.
The scavenger had salvaged junk to trade with Plutt and took the position of another humanoid scavenger in the line for the Crolute's Concession Stand behind the pet seller and storyteller Bobbajo, while the scavenger Rey dealt with Plutt.
Carsamba was in Niima again the next day, and while heading away from Plutt's stand, passed Rey as she arrived with the astromech droid BB-8 on her speeder. Carsamba was still present later that day when Niima was attacked by the forces of the First Order, who were searching for BB-8. Rey, BB-8, and the First Order deserter Finn fled past Carsamba through a number of Niima's marquees while trying to escape from stormtroopers that were chasing them.
