Yondu is a shrewd, humorous, boisterous, at times unscrupulous redneck-sounding alien who makes his living as a treasure hunter, teaching Peter Quill most of what he knows. He also acted as something of an adoptive father figure to Quill at one point. Sometimes when Star Lord gets in trouble, and/or when it appears Yondu wants to kill him for some perceived act of betrayal, Yondu is actually pretending to be mad at his protege and, in fact, trying to spare him from most, if not all of the consequences, as he is deep down a decent enough fellow who had enough faith in the young man to save him from being eaten by the other Ravagers, and still does.
