Mar is a historical figure mentioned in Jak II and Jak 3. He is the legendary founder of Haven City, ancient enemy of the Hora-Quan and ally of the Precursors. He was chosen to protect the planet by the Precursors and helped build many relics and structures seen throughout both Jak II and Jak 3, including the Shield Wall and eco grid. He is the founder of the ruling dynasty in Haven City, the House of Mar, with the family crest and Precursor artifact known as the Seal of Mar. He disappeared before he could use his weapon powered by the Precursor Stone against Metal Kor and the Metal Head race. He was believed to be buried in the Tomb of Mar along with the last Precursor Stone.

There were several statues inspired by his figure that were placed near and around Haven City. One could deduce his possible appearance based on these ancient statues.

Mar established the House of Mar as the ruling dynasty in Haven City. Amongst other things named in his honor, he had the Statue of Mar, Seal of Mar, Tomb of Mar, Armor of Mar, and Mar's gun. He also had a distant descendant named after him who would later go on to go by the name of Jak.

In Jak 3, Jak obtains a set of Precursor metal armor said to be worn by Mar himself in his battles for the planet. Whether there are more pieces waiting to be found is uncertain, but there are four parts obtainable during the course of the game.
