Lazar, aka Yeager in the Japanese version. He is a top-ranking henchman to Rex Goodwin
He is also the vice-directo,r and later director of Sector Security.


Lazar had grown up performing in a circus with his family. His family all loved cup ramen. But because of bad business, the income from the circus was barely enough to support Lazar's family. Lazar's parents always wished to buy ramen for their children to eat, but they never had enough money to do so. (This story suggests that business was even worse than he suggested, as cup ramen is traditionally an inexpensive food.) So, as the oldest of the siblings. Lazar went out into the world to look for a good job in order to one day support his family. Lazar manages to find himself as an officer at Sector Security, and soon got promoted by Rex Goodwin himself to head of special investigations. Now with enough money, Lazar was finally able to buy cup ramen for his entire family, including his wife and son.

He and Rex Goodwin believed Jack Atlas, from the Satillite, to be a Signer. On behalf of Goodwin he meets Jack and offers him the chance to become King in New Domino City. In order for Jack to do that he must take a Duel Runner and the Stardust Dragon/Red Dragon Archfiend cards through the pipeline to New Domino City.

Lazar seems somewhat afraid of Jack and is often a victim of his anger. However, he looks up to Jack for saving New Domino City and is grateful to him. He once stole cup ramen from Jack without even realizing it was his cup ramen, and was suddenly victim of his anger with Jack saying "That was my cup ramen you stole, by the way!".


Lazar is arrogant, and almost egotistical. He is also mildly sadistic, tending to laugh at anyone's misfortune, but only when he has the upper hand. When he doesn't, and he is truly in danger, his attitude changes quickly, and he proves to be little more than a coward. Lazar has a family (which looks exactly like him) whom he deeply cares for, however.

Lazar does not seem to get along with Mina, as seen by them bickering while watching Jack Duel Yusei. This is made more obvious in the English version.

Lazar also has a Duel with Crow Hogan, as Crow mistakes Lazar as one of the Dark Signers. This' so that Crow tries to find out what Lazar is really after. He is shown to be extremely fond of cup ramen, helping himself to one of Jack's while stealing an engine program that Yusei and Bruno were working on. He is shown to look down on regular sector securities, as he calls Officer Tetsu Trudge a street beat cop.


Lazar is a short, effeminate man who wears red lipstick and has light purple hair. He dresses in an opulent red costume with a black collar and gold trim.

Yu-Gi-Oh! 5D's Manga

Lazar meets Yusei Fudo in Satellite outside Puzzle Hospital. He hears Yusei cursing over his loss to Jack Atlas. Lazar comments that the yearning for victory while cursing defeat is the kind of pure soul that is needed for any Turbo Duelist. He address Yusei as the best Turbo Duelist in Satellite and invites him to participate in the D1 Grand Prix. He tells Yusei about the tournament. His talk of wealth and fame for the winner doesn't appeal to Yusei, so he notifies Yusei that it could be a chance to restore the pride that Jack took from him. He exits, giving Yusei a week to think about it.

Lazar is present at the beginning of the D1 Grand Prix. He watched from a box room, with Goodwin, Jack and Mina. When Yusei was running late for his first game, Lazar laughed that he wasn't going to arrive, but was told to shut-up by Jack.

During Yusei's Duel with Greiger, Lazar snickers that they are going to see a One Turn Kill at an early stage of the tournament. He laughs when Jack corrects Mina for calling Greiger the "Undefeated Giant".

When Rex Goodwin asks if the Duelist with "that card" has shown up yet, Lazar responds that they haven't but Yusei Fudo is consider the one most likely to have it as he Dueled the Skeleton Knight recently. Lazar then states that he will do an investigation on Yusei right away.

During Yusei's Duel with Hunter Pace, Lazar isn't in the room with Jack and the others but in a different location watching the Duel on a monitor in hopes of seeing Yusei play the shadow card. But to Lazar's surprise he finds out that Sect Ijuin is the one that owns the shadow card, not Yusei.

Lazar appears in a flashback of Leo, offering him a job to pay for his sister's medicine while giving him the Power Tool Mecha Dragon card.

To get to the next stage of the D1GP, all the participants have to travel on boat to get there. Lazar shows up and holds a feast for the winning participants, telling them to enjoy themselves while they head to Satellite. When the boat arrives at Saiko Island, Lazar appears on top of the Duel Gate to explain the rules of the D1GP second stage.
