Legacy of the Void Short Story: "Ascension"

Legacy of the Void Short Story: "Ascension"

The Tal’Darim Protoss serve Amon, operating in a clearly defined hierarchy known as the Chain of Ascension, where all are compelled to obey those who stand above them.

Alarak, being the Fourth Ascendant, is one of the most powerful among the Tal’Darim. Eager to serve Amon and further his own power, Alarak is presented with a choice that will change his future, and that of his people, forever.


"Amon cannot die," Alarak said. You heretical lunatic, he didn't add. But then a new thought occurred to him. This is a test. It had to be. Nuroka did not seem insane. No. His eyes had not the touch. He was simply testing Alarak's loyalty to Amon in a dramatic way. Alarak clung to that thought. "It would be easier to destroy every star in the galaxy," he said. "Amon gives us life. He shares with us the Breath of Creation. What would the Tal'darim be without His guidance?"


Learn the story behind StarCraft II: Legacy of the Void starting with “Ascension”, a grim yet revealing tale about the lives and pursuits of the Tal’Darim Protoss. We hope you enjoy it, as well as the additional stories arriving in the coming weeks.
