Jawson is a trusted henchman of the crook boss Brick Daddy. He is strong but silent and easily underestimated. Although Jawson isn't very bright, he will carry out any job Brick Daddy gives him to do. Jawson has broken into and out of the astro-jail several times. According to the LEGO Club magazine, he is allergic to anchovies.
Jawson's original name was Hench, though it may have been changed due to it sounding very similar to another Space Police III alien, Rench, therefore avoiding confusion between both of the criminals.
