"Listen, buddy, you don't have clearance for this area. Move along."
― J. Yezback, upon meeting the Marine  [src]

J. Yezback is a minor character in Doom 3. He is a Mars-Sec personnel stationed at Mars City, assigned to guard the security door leading to the Administration facility, armed with a Machine Gun.

When the player meets J. Yezback, he will deny them the clearance to enter Administration before advising them to go to Marine HQ. If the player persists in speaking to him, he will become very annoyed and eventually snap, saying: "God dammit, Marine, get outta here!"

Shortly after the demonic invasion, a Machine Gun wielding Z-Sec is found fighting against an operational Sentry Bot where he previously stood guard, suggesting he turned into a Zombie.


  • His behavior could be an obscure Easter egg to Half-Life's Black Mesa Announcement System. In the Hazard Course of said game, if the player tries to continuously access a restricted area without approval, the announcer would eventually become annoyed and snap at them.
