BlizzCon 2014 – StarCraft II: Legacy of the Void – Characters
Blizzard Entertainment provided a first look at the new characters found throughout the Legacy of the Void single-player.
ARTANIS – Hierarch: When the First Contact War ended, Aiur had been conquered by the zerg Swarm. The protoss stood on the brink of oblivion, at risk of seeing their civilization disappear entirely. It was Artanis, a young executor, who prevented a bloody civil war and guided both the Khalai and Nerazim factions through the chaos of the Brood War. Now, with the Golden Armada at his command, he intends to take back Aiur and prepare his people for the final battle against an ancient and indomitable enemy.
KERRIGAN – Queen of Blades: She once worked in the shadows. Now the entire Koprulu sector fears her name. The Queen of Blades was the terror of humanity for years, a nightmare that haunted the rich and the poor, the soldier and the civilian, the folks on fringe worlds and the city dwellers on central planets.
RAYNOR – Rebel Commander: Jim Raynor has been called many things. Outlaw. Lawman. Soldier. Terrorist. He has endured the cruel tyranny of the Terran Confederacy, opposed the brutal dictatorship of Arcturus Mengsk’s Dominion, escaped the clutches of the zerg Swarm, and even made allies among the mysterious and enlightened protoss. He’s a loyal friend, a frightening enemy, and clever enough to take on the most powerful foes in the galaxy. Not bad for a farm boy from a backwoods planet.
KARAX – Phasesmith: The optimization of weapons, armor, and spacefaring ships is a phasesmith’s highest calling, and Karax is one of the most precise engineers in the whole of the Khalai. Through sheer dedication, he will rise above his origins in the protoss’ worker caste to become a crucial asset in Artanis’s war against Amon.
ROHANA – Preserver: The role of a preserver is to protect and maintain the memories of the greatest protoss who have ever lived. For millennia, the wisdom of preservers has been held in the highest regard by protoss leaders. Rohana, one of only three grand preservers, holds within her mind almost all of the memories of the ancient protoss civilization of the Firstborn. She has seen every battle, every war, and every loss. Rohana willingly entered stasis aboard the Spear of Adun, saving her knowledge for the time of her race’s greatest need.
VORAZUN – Nerazim Matriarch: Tensions remain high among the factions of the protoss. Vorazun, daughter of the legendary Nerazim matriarch Raszagal, frequently disagreed with Artanis during debates in the Twilight Council. More importantly, she is a peerless warrior and utterly dedicated to the survival of the dark templar. She will never back down—neither in debate nor in battle—when it comes to the well-being of her people.
ZERATUL – Nerazim Prelate: Zeratul has seen the end, tides of darkness surging across the expanse of the galaxy, erasing all life. In recent years, he has been consumed with the mysteries of ancient prophecies, hoping to discern and disrupt Amon’s plans. Now he is certain that time is running out. With fate hanging in the balance, it falls to Zeratul to warn the protoss of the imminent threat.
AMON: An ancient evil returned to remake the universe – to destroy all we cherish.
