|“||I may be as pretty as an angel, but I sure as hell ain't one.||„|
|~ Yondu, to Star-Lord|
Yondu Udonta was originally a Kree battle slave until he was saved by Stakar Ogord who recruited him into the ruthless space pirate group known as the Ravagers. In 1988, after becoming the captain of his own crew, Yondu was hired by the Celestial Ego for a series of delivery missions to retrieve his hybrid children. But once he learned the children's fate, and was disowned by his peers for child trafficking, Yondu decided to keep Ego's earth-based son Peter Quill and trained him to be a Ravager over the next 26 years. Despite acting harsh towards Quill after he stole the Orb for him, Yondu is gradually revealed to sincerely care for the human.
