Jarek Yeager was a human male with brown eyes and dark skin. By the time of the cold war, approximately three decades after the Battle of Endor, his black hair had begun to turn gray.
Having survived the Galactic Civil War, Yeager enjoyed his retirement on the Colossus, which kept him far removed from the central systems of the galaxy. Possessing a life's worth of experience, Yeager was noted for his quiet and hardworking attitude, as well as the wisdom that came with age. Yeager could be a demanding employer who expected high standards from his employees. However, he respected Xiono's willingness to save his friends from danger.
Yeager was deeply affected by the loss of his wife and daughter during a racing accident caused by his younger brother Marcus Speedstar. Yeager severed his relationship with Speedstar and turned his back on his racing career. Yeager's bitterness towards Speedstar led him to reject his younger brother's efforts at reconciling with him. Yeager's feelings towards Speedstar softened after realizing that Speedstar did care for his friend Oplock, who had been held for ransom by the Guavian Death Gang. While Yeager was still unable to forgive Speedstar, he allowed him to win so that Speedstar could save his friend Oplock.
