Description: R1-J5, commonly known as "Bucket," was an 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 pilotĂ˘â‚¬â€śturnedĂ˘â‚¬â€śmechanic 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.
R1-J5 was an astromech droid with masculine programming. 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.
Bucket took a dislike to the newcomer Kazuda Xiono, slamming into him on several occasions. On another occasion, Bucket took delight in waking Kaz with his alarm. Bucket was also hostile to the newer astromech droid BB-8 and expressed jealousy when BB-8 borrowed his helmet.
Bucket was equipped with an alarm which he could use to wake others. Bucket also wore a helmet which he was deeply attached too. He felt naked without it and took offense when BB-8 borrowed it.
