Pete Vandhaar was a cynical man who seemed to always have something to prove. His eyes harbored a constant scornful look, but he would always joke and babble with friendly manners, although he was highly opportunistic and calculating.
More sociable than his colleagues, Vandhaar was nonetheless a rash trickster. However, he was quite charismatic and managed to attract a loyal crew, which never used unnecessary violence.
He liked wearing pilot's gear, always had a heavy blaster on his left and a vibroblade in one of his boots. A small cigarillo never left his mouth.
