Yam Koo is a pale man, with white hair which is shaggy and messy. He wears a long Blue robe and also wears flip flops. In the Dunan Unification War, he's become much more pale than when he was seen previously, but, is otherwise seemingly unchanged between the two events.
Yam Koo has a laid back attitude most of the time, and enjoys fishing more than most things. He only seems to get worried when it's related to his brother, who is quite a spontaneous guy. Yam Koo also likes to openly talk about his brother in front of him, showing that he has a very blunt way of speaking.
During the Toran Liberation War, Yam Koo and Tai Ho have been fishing partners for a long time, and get along well, despite Yam Koo's worry over Tai Ho's habit of just letting things happen and going with the flow of events. This tendency gets Yam Koo involved with Tir when Tai Ho offers to explore Toran Castle, and eventually involves them in the Gate Rune Wars.
During the Dunan Unification War, while working in Coronet, Tai Ho's nature once again pulls Yam Koo into momentous events, starting with a simple trip across the lake to Kuskus, then joining the New State Army when Tai Ho joins to help Riou get to Two River. While a member of the group, Yam Koo offers his fishing expertise to help get ingredients for the restaurant run by Hai Yo. After the war, he enjoys a life of fishing on the shores of Lake Toran.
