Herat was a female Jawa who stayed at Jabba's Palace in support of her friend Wittin. They used to be lovers, but they'd broken up because he felt she was too controlling. In their first weak at the Palace, Wittin slept with Herat, but had overwhelming regret the next morning when Herat's actions made it clear she thought the act meant they were back together.
Herat had her bags packed and was sleeping on the couch for her last week at the Palace, waiting for one of her best friends to move out of her parents and thus have an extra room Herat could use. Before she was able to make this move though she was killed by Luke Skywalker during the Skirmish At Carkoon.
