Yade M'rak was a Human male from the planet Corellia. Prior to 32 BBY, he moved to the desert world of Tatooine and settled in the city of Mos Espa. Largely ignored and derided by the city's gangsters and spacers, M'rak made considerable efforts to stay out of their disputes and lightfights.
On Tatooine, M'rak was addicted to gambling on the outcome of Podraces. After losing most of his belongings to the crime lord Gardulla the Hutt, he remained in Mos Espa and worked as a smuggler of black market weaponry. In 32 BBY, the Corellian attended the annual Boonta Eve Classic Podrace in the Mos Espa Grand Arena, where he watched the proceedings from the private viewing box of the Toydarian merchant Watto.
Personality and traits
Yade M'rak was a gambling man who was addicted to betting on Podracing, but bad luck saw him part with the majority of his possessions. He kept a low profile in Mos Espa and attempted not to become involved in local disputes. Like many other down-on-their-luck denizens of the city, M'rak scraped by while dreaming of one day being able to leave Tatooine. A smuggler of black market contraband, he was possessed of fair skin, as well as gray hair that he wore in at least two dreadlocks and sometimes kept under a hood.
Behind the scenes
Yade M'rak first appeared as an unnamed extra in the 1999 film Star Wars: Episode I The Phantom Menace. He was played by an uncredited actor. Information on the character was later revealed in the 2001 Coruscant Limited expansion set of the Star Wars Customizable Card Game, which gave him a name.
