Background: R1-J5, commonly known as “Bucket,” was an R-series astromech droid owned by Jarek Yeager, the leader of Team Fireball, a racing team headquartered on the Colossus refueling platform.

R1-J5 served the former New Republic starfighter pilot–turned–mechanic Jarek Yeager for several years. During Yeager’s racing days, Bucket served as his copilot on his racer. Yeager ended his racing career after his younger brother Marcus Speedstar caused the deaths of Yeager’s wife and daughter during a racing accident. By 34 ABY, Bucket was part of Yeager’s Team Fireball, a group of mechanics and pilots who operated from Yeager’s repair shop on the Colossus platform on the planet Castilon. Bucket’s colleagues were the mechanics Tamara Ryvora, a female human pilot, and the Nikto Neeku Vozo.

Though noted for his peculiar personality, a consequence of the droid’s outmoded and defective programming, Bucket was a reliable mechanic and a loyal servant to his master. As an astromech droid, Bucket also spoke in Binary.
