Abilities: Hypersonic pulse- Stuns enemies for a short duriation
EMP round-drains shields and temporarily reveals cloaked units. Also disables electronics for a short time.
Cloak (Semi-Passive)- Becomes invisible. Operates much like a Dark Templar's due to the training done on Shakuras with them.

Blink-At Naaris's behest, Jared has been trying to learn blink. Can only move a few inches as it stands.
Backstory: Jared was one of the first Entity's created with the programs inception. He knew the original Entity, Hunter Zios, leader of the Headhunters, and a good family friend. He contacted Jim with the idea to instead of using Tosh's method, sending them to Shakuras to train. The result was the Entity, and with a new generation came new gear. He carries a Psi Scythe that was a gift from his teacher, Naaris, the same Dark Templar who trained Hunter. Is lethal at all ranges, but especially melee. His scythe tears through armor with ease and he is an incredibly skilled stealth combatant and infiltrator. Due to his training, he strongly disagrees with the continued use of spectres, but understands due to the length of time it takes to train Entitys. Despises ghosts, and tolerates spectres.

New Units-

Terran

Light Scout: Wears the new CMC-200 Scouting armor. Is lighter and faster then your average marine, but is also only armed with a rifle and pistol. One of the drawbacks is they carry less ammo, and are therefore usually armed with the GHR-12 sniper rifle and a Scythe combat pistol. Many are known to also carry swords or knives as well.

Heavy assault Troop: Most armored of any Dominion or Raiders soldier, carry's a mini-gun into battle that is equipped with a miniature ammo factory with nanobots that constantly create ammo so it never runs out of ammo. Wears the new TRI-100 Heavy Assault armor. Heavier and slower then a marine. Has been known to keep walking even after receiving a direct hit from a siege tank.

Entity: The newest in Raider infiltraiton units. Equipped with the new VYN-300 Combat/Survival suit, new EMS-99 assault rifle, Shatterer combat pistol and Rayon energy blade. They've received months of training from Zeratul and his Dark Templar and no longer require special implants to channel psionic energy to cloak. Can use cloak, EMP round, Hypersonic pulse, and each one has created unique abilities to fit their personalities.

Shadow: When the Dominion first encountered the Entity in combat, they assumed ghosts would be sufficient to handle them. They couldn't have been more wrong. Three of the new Entity class infiltration units easily dispatched the number one ghost team sent to eliminate them. The Dominion's answer was a black ops unit known only as the Shadow. Little is known about the Shadow besides their armament and environment suit. Armed with the TSR-77 Sniper Rifle, Ender combat pistol, and a katana, and clad in the new HWI Special Operations suit, the only way to detect them is their psionic signature.

Guardian: As war continues, the need for combat engineers becomes more and more important for base defenses and siege weapons. A certain team within the Umojan realized that those with psionic talents could be trained to understand machinery better with normal engineers. Using former ghost trainers and chief engineers from within Umojan and Mercenary factions, Guardians are capable of deploying turrets and manipulating machines via a psionic focuser and nano-machines built into a gauntlet on the off-hand. Starts out with a VSE-16 Siege Engineer suit, "Omega" Gauntlet, Type 5 "Tempest" Sub-machine Gun and a psi knife, although some are known to prefer spears.

Chimera: Named after the legendary creature of old lore, Chimera troopers are the shock troopers of the Umojan Protectorate. Fielding weapons heavier than their cousins in the Dominion and the Raiders, their suits are built with heavy engagements in mind. Due to the suit being a prototype, however, the number of Chimera troops fielded are minimal. They also are bulkier and slower than their cousins, and rely on a volatile chemical mix in order to ensure the suit's continued function. Equipped with Prototype ASF-2A suit, T-81 Rocket Pods, and a T- 13 Flamethrower attached to a C-17 Gauss Rifle. Their versatility is well established by their looks alone.

Valkyrie: The Valkyrie were Female Psionics within the Dominion that excelled at healing and combat, while being able to pilot at incredible skills. They wear the VIK-755 Armor that resembles some of the Valkyries of old. They have modified Swords and Spears where they can be used as a gun. They also use the Spirit Class Battle Barges, they carry the souls of the warriors that will be taken to battle, or back home. They are mobile and they are not to be underestimated.

Combat Medic: Medics were usually attached to squads entering combat, but they were often focused upon due to their ability to heal and being unarmed. Certain leaders decided that the extra training required for the use of pistols for the medics, along with their usual training using the medical equipment, was worth the risk to improve their survivability. Although the Medivac replaced them due to their ability to transport and their flight, Combat Medics are still the preferred over the Medivac due to being easier to train, and produce their armor. Usually equipped with TOE-S4 Medical Armor, Scythe Gauss Pistol/Hammerhead Revolver, combat knife, Optical Flares, and a few Nano-machine Grenades.

Zerg

Hive Matriarch: The Matriarch is the epitaph of Zerg Queen genetics. She has been around for so long that her tail has become like a manta ray's crest, she is the largest queen around, and the larva she spawns can survive off creep. She's seen the coming and going of several Zerg species and has managed to mutate some of their abilities into her own DNA. For example, she saw the arrival and dismissal of the Lurker, and managed to mutate Dark Swarm into her list of abilities. She managed to create a unique ability called Shockwave to buy herself time to escape or attack. She's also managed to mutate her spines so that they are covered in armor melting acid and her claws into scythe like blades called Zagaris Blades. As she ages, she learns things like Swarm Pod, Bio-Plasma Blast, Infest, Razor Swarm, Distortion, Implosion.

Plague-Eater: Only one such creature exists, and it's name is Calek. Born a hydralisk and fused with a lurker and a spectre, he has learned to use abilities that scare even the mighty Queen of Blades. His armament are many of the things used by his fellow Zerg, but modified to fit his needs. He has kept his Subterranean Spines, but all his other weapons, for lack of a better term; his scythe blades and spines; are poisoned. He is fearsome beyond any other Zerg creature but perhaps the Hive Matriarch, but only a fierce battle would determine that. He is currently alone, but perhaps he will find a way to contact his brood...

Swarmlord: Swarmlords are created via the infestation of ghosts, although they usually end up serving the Swarm. However, one of them was present with the activation of a Xel'naga artifact that deinfested even the mighty Queen of Blades. He now hides among other Terrans, giving the story that he's been completely cured and is now once more just your average ghost. This isn't true, as he is constantly followed by Broodlings which he claims to have just tamed. He also is very secretive and distrusting. How much truth is there to this Swarmlord's story?

Tyrant: An Infested Terran with a special strand of the Hyper-Evolutionary Virus. In situations of stress, they can mutate to grow appendages. Although the mutations vary from each Infested, the new appendages can increase the durability of the individual, along with completely healing them of any current wounds. Certain ones have been seen to be able to split Tanks open, or do head-to-head psionic battles with Templars. There is a limit on the amount of mutating that can happen, and reaching that limit can instantly kill the host.

Protoss

Remnant: No one knows where these strange Protoss came from, or even if they really exist. All that is known is that they attack any threat to their brethren. Some of the crash survivors theorize that they caused the strange energy pulse that knocked everyone on to the planet.

War Observer: The Dark Templar learned from the Fall of Aiur that unarmed observers weren't able to protect themselves when an enemy capable of detecting them exposed them. They also learned that an armed observer sent into a fledgling enemy base could cause untold amounts of damage. Unfortunately, they are still proving less effective then the Dark Templar themselves.

Fire Kin-Powerful High Templar that have focused their Psionic energy into fire. The Psionic storms turn into powerful fire storms and they fire out small balls of flame. Because of this, they wear less armor and a far more powerful shield.

I'm still working on that by the way, but I'm kind of a perfectionist, and so it's taking quite a while. However, the background is completely done now, and I have just started working on the characters.
