Yanar was a friend and follower of the Forgotten Tribe's last Mitre, Athair. Despite his confusion, Yanar did not question Athair's motives for leaving the Lost Tribe and assigning his great-grandson Knuckles to take his place. Following Athair's disappearance, Yanar aided Knuckles in leading the tribe's search for the fabled city of Albion.
While wandering through the land of Mercia, the Lost Tribe was forced to flee after Dr. Ivo Robotnik's local Sub-Boss, the High Sheriff, used his local Robian forces to capture and enslave many of the tribe's members. Yanar was one of the many who was captured, and thrown into a prison cell where he met Sonic the Hedgehog and Miles "Tails" Prower. When one of the guards tried to take Sonic away for interrogation, Yanar attacked the Robian and was thus selected for interrogation instead. During the attack, Yanar managed to grab the key off the guard, and kick it to Sonic before being taken away. When Sonic managed to break free and rescue Tails, the two discovered along with Knuckles and Mari-An that Yanar was to be publicly executed to serve as an example to those who would resist the High Sheriff's orders.
With help from Sonic, Tails, Rob O' the Hedge and Mari-An, Yanar was rescued and the Lost Tribe liberated from captivity. After this, Rob managed to point the Lost Tribe in the direction of Albion, and soon the tribe was greeted by the city's High Councillor, Gala-Na. Upon entering the city, Yanar noticed Knuckles looking glum. When Knuckles explained his place was back on the Floating Island, Yanar told him not to be upset, and that Athair and the Mitre's before him would be proud. Yanar then passed on to Knuckles the Guiding Star Gem, enabling him to travel around Mobius much quicker to return home to the Floating Island.
The next time Yanar was seen was during Knuckles trek to Albion along with Rob O' the Hedge, Amy Rose, Antoine D'Coolette and Bunnie Rabbot, the others searching to find Antoine's father (the High Sheriff) and Knuckles seeking answers for the disappearance of the entire Floating Island's population. Yanar also felt Councillor Rita-Le was "making much ado over nothing" when she objected to outsiders visiting Albion. After the others went to sleep, Yanar spoke to Knuckles, who was overlooking the city. When Knuckles found out Albion knew of the Dark Legion's attack on Angel Island and the subsequent disappearance of the island's population, Knuckles yelled at Yanar. In turn, Yanar explained there was nothing they could do to help at the time, turning Knuckles' attention to the more pressing matter of the High Sheriff, whom the High Council had decided to dismantle in the name of the "greater good" due to the recent arrival of Dr. Eggman to Mobius Prime. While discussing the issue with Knuckles, the High Sheriff broke free from his shackles and began to attack the two. In the ensuing fight Knuckles evolved into Chaos Knuckles, resulting in a major explosion causing Yanar to go into shock.
After Chaos Knuckles teleported the disabled High Sheriff, Antoine and the others away, Yanar brought the two hired bounty hunters Nic and Nack the Weasel before the High Council, explaining they were only hired due to dire circumstances. Yanar agreed with the High Council's decision that Knuckles' new powers proved a threat to everyone and they needed to be neutralized. Following the successful capture of Chaos Knuckles, Yanar provided the Weasel siblings with the High Council's payment, telling them to forget the incident ever happened.
As a result of the Albion scientist Dr. Finitevus mutating and becoming psychologically unstable from using the Chaos Siphon Suit to drain some of Chaos Knuckles' powers, the scientist escaped from Albion captivity and informed the Eggman Empire of Albion's location. Yanar, like the rest of the city's population, was presumably captured and sent to the Egg Grape Chambers.
