The year is 2499, the Confederacy was in desperate need of resources, so they sent out 15 mining ships, massive ships that were able to house thousands of people. All 14 other ships mysteriously went dark, but 1 remained, uncontested and began mining for 5 months. However after those 5 months, something happened, a sabotage took place, someone destroyed the engine core with bombs, and planted a transmitter in the communication room. Nobody knew who did it or what the transmitter was for, but in less than a week, Zerg showed up. In less than a hour, 90% of the people on board, died a brutal death. The few who survived, holed up in the ships armory, and awaited for extraction.

Zealot Elite

Psi-halberd, Psi-blaster

Personality: Taedaris is strong minded, strong willed and loyal to the Daelaam and their allies. He can often be found training with his weapons, which are unique to his class of Zealot. When not training, he meditates, increasing his mental prowess and creating new ways to use his psionic potential. When he is angered, you should fear him, for few can stand before his righteous fury.

Back story: Taedaris is one of the few Daelaam Protoss who were chosen to be trained as an Elite Zealot. While lacking the mental power of a High Templar, the Elites are twice as quick and strong as any Zealot, with a much higher control of their psionic powers. However, they’ll never be able to be as strong as a Templar, nor reach their level. Elite Zealots are a class all their own. Taedaris is still considered young by Protoss standards, only being 200 years old, but he is powerful in his own right, being the second highest ranking Elite, an Imperator. He, however, is not their leader. He’s been an Elite since he was only 50 years old, training with his father until he surpassed him and was allowed to gain a real rank. Since then, he has fought against the Swarm and the Terran Confederacy, even seeing conflict against the heretical Tal’Darim. While slaying his brethren brings him no joy, he will not allow them to sully the Protoss name and harm Xel’Naga artifacts.

Appearance: Wears a suit of Protoss armor that envelops his entire body, but the helmet can appear and vanish with a thought. His eyes are orange to signify his allegiance to the Daelaam and he is about 7' 5" tall. The armor looks like a suit of standard Zealot armor minus the Psi-Blade attachments and is orange and blue.
You, uh, forgot my Protoss guy...Taedaris...
"Here's the plan. Kill the "Kill-Team". Get to the hangars, and get the hell out. The Confederates knew something. And now we're all as good as dead to them... So what do we do?
Run, as you may call it. But I'll call it survival. We find a way to make the ship go boom, and we live the rest of our lives as whatever else."
I nod in agreement. "Sounds like a plan. But I still have to get my family off of Tarsonis..."
"I'm pretty sure this ship has a few transport carriers that could hold a lot of people."
"That isn't the problem. The problem will be getting onto Tarsonis to get them off."
"True. I think we could slip by, considering this is a Confederate ship. And we just need some kind of ground transport and we could just land out in the wilderness then go from there."
"Trick is finding unowned wilderness..."
"Shouldnt be too hard... I dont think..."
"Been awhile since you were to Tarsonis, hasn't it? Almost all the Old Families own one chunk or another."
I spit at the thought of the "Old Families"

"Haven't been in my father's skyscraper since I was 9. I don't care to go back either..."
"That's your choice whether or not you make peace with your demons. All I have to say is that you never know when they'll be gone."

OOC: A sort of off hand reference to the following year.
"I did nothing to them. If I see them, I will. Greedy bastards, couldn't care less if I ran away or was taken. They just want money... All of the old families. That's all it is to them. All of them... And other things they have done, make me hope they all die..."

I clench my fist.
"Like I said, it's up to you. But they aren't all greedy. The one that backs my unit keeps us safe from a number of things, Resocialization included."
I grunt. "I'll come with, and I believe you, but the 'Orin Family' and all their friends can burn in hell."
"I can see nothing I say can persuade you." I pull out a cigar and light it, taking a drag. "But we'll see how strong your convictions are when the are dead."
"The thought brings a smile to my face." I take off my mask, my face is blank as it normally is. But my eyes have a sinister look in them.

"They are the reason I chose this life willingly."
IC James: "Your family lives on Tarsinis too, well thats good ews. Also has this killl team arrived yet???"
Abyss moved from his spot... Disappearing from view....


Appearing next to the crying girl, a bone like blade at her throat. Whispering softly into her head. "Call them..... Or I will kill you..... Call the survivors to you."

This girl was shivering and was scared, she gave in, {Can someone help me? My husband is dead and I'm carrying an unborn child.... I need help. I'm near the residential quarters... Somewhere in the middle.}

If it fails though.... I shall kill you.


Feet were clashing with metal, panting clashing with silence...

... Just as Sol reached the stairs.....

A Zergling pounced onto her back, fast and almost undetectable. Knocking her down the stairs, throwing Sol down them. Biting into her leg with such force, and in turn... Her head collided with the floor.

Two more Zerglings showed up.... All three dragging the body to somewhere.
