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

J. Yezback was a Mars-Sec security guard stationed at Mars City. He was assigned to guard the security door leading to the Administration facility. Yezback wore a standard Mars-Sec uniform and full helmet, and wielded a Machine Gun.

When the player meets J. Yezback in Doom 3, he says that you don't have clearance to enter Administration. If the player persists in speaking to him, he will become very annoyed and eventually snap, "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 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 the player.
