Jim Raynor was initially a marshal in the Confederate's army. He was one of their best, but the Confederacy soon described him as “inconvenient” and accused him of crimes against humanity. He was then thrown in prison on the Korhal planet, but the son of Arcturus Mengsk - Valerian, released him. Raynor received an offered to join the Mengsk's revolution group in the fight against the Confederacy and he accepted without a second thought. But in the final strike against the Confederacy, on the planet Tarsonis, the rebels used a psi emitter that broadcasts waves that only the Zerg can understand. After this action, the whole planet was overrun by the Swarm and the Confederacy was defeated. Mengsk left his troops including Raynor and Sarah Kerrigan - Jim’s beloved and a commander. Raynor managed somehow to escape, but Kerrigan was captured by the Zerg. After the defeated of the Confederacy, Arcturus Mengsk pronounced himself as emperor of the new Dominion order. After this mission Raynor left the Dominion. In search of vengeance for his lost love, he started his own team called the Raynor’s Rebels, which started a liberating campaign against Arcturus Mengsk's rule. What’s more, Jim soon learned that Sarah has been transformed into the deadly Queen of Blades – commander of the Swarm. After many battles against the Terran Dominion, Raynor was officially pronounced the worst enemy of the new order. Furthermore he is forced to fight his beloved one too, because the former Kerrigan is now leading the whole Swarm into a brutal war against the Terran. Raynor’s only hope is his new powerful ally, the mighty Protoss, whose trust he gained throughout epic campaigns.
The huge number of battles and all of his fallen troops, friends and allies has turned Jim into a shadow of a man. These days he is drinking more than ever, but his hope of winning the war, bringing down Mengsk and even saving Kerrigan is still holding him together.
He has been in the high society since his early childhood, because of his family’s position in the Confederacy. It seems that his path has been pre-chosen: first he should inherit his parents’ fortune and then live a good life among the richest people. However Arcturus’s priorities were quite different. He grew up was a young boy, seeking adventures, so later on he decided to join the Confederacy's Marine Corps. In the war against the Kel-Morian Terran he demonstrated amazing skills like leading operations and making tactics. But being a simple commander was not enough for Mengsk and even though the war was still on, he left this division and began to travel to the nearest planets seeking for a good career as merchant. Arcturus succeeded in making a good career, but soon his father turned against the Confederacy by declaring their own planet, Korhal, independent. The Confederacy replied by slaughtering Mengsk’s entire family. The people of Korhal were on his father’s side and proclaimed him a liberator. The Confederacy realized that they have lost control over the planet’s population and decided to exterminate them. The entire planet was then blasted with nuclear bombs that destroyed all life-forms. At the time of the tragedy, Arcturus was on a nearby planet and witnessed the horrible act. After this tragedy he formed a group of rebels, known as the Sons of Korhal. From this day on Arcturus Mengsk’s hunger for revenge was his leading him. Soon he managed to defeat the Confederacy with the help of other planets that favored his cause. He then declared the new government of the Terran, Dominion, and himself as an emperor. Now Mengsk is on his home-planet, Korhal. He has rebuilt it and now it is an impenetrable fortress with massive weapons and troops.
No one can tell if Findley is a good or a bad guy. Even his best friend, Jim Raynor, isn't sure that he truly knows Findley. They first met as marines in the war between the Confederacy and the Kel–Morian. As soon as they proved themselves as excellent troops, they were sent in the elite squad of the 321 Colonial Rangers Battalion. Findlay and Jim's unit, “Heaven's Devils”, soon became famous for their extraordinary victories. However, due to bad orders, they were accused of friendly fire and were hunted for many years. Instead of surrendering, they turned into some kind of legends among the Terrans in the Korpulu sector. Sadly Findley was captured by another head-hunting mission, but Raynor somehow managed to escape. From this day on all Tychus Findley has been locked up on New Folsom, in the most secured and guarded prison.
Matt grew up in an ordinary family but he always craved for something more. He found his true self, when he was accepted as a member of the revolutionary group, Sons of Korhal. He was sent to the Confederacy army to be trained as a pilot, no matter that they were their enemy. The minute his training was competed, Horner deserted the Confederacy and rejoined his comrades. He was then ranked as captain of the merchant ship Cormorant, but he soon proved himself as one of the best pilots in the Sons of Korhal. Later on it on a mission where he met Jim Raynor and the two of them quickly became very good friends. Matt discovered the truth about the way their commander, Mengsk, directed the Zerg to the Confederate's capital planet Tarsonis. He was disgusted and realized that the new order will be even worse, than the previous one. That’s why he joined Raynor and his rebels without second thoughts. In an immense battle with the Dominion's star-ships, the rebels managed to capture Mengsk's main ship, the Hyperion, and Matt himself was charged with the task to navigate this gigantic Battlecruiser. Unfortunately, the Hyperion's crew, except Matt Horner, began to doubt Jim Raynor and victory, because of the lack of victories and the huge number of battles. Horner’s never-dying spirit and trust in his leader are the only two things left to motivate him.
Zeratul is a Dark Templar and is one of the strongest among them. He is one of the Protoss that were exiled from the planet Aiur, because they didn’t agree to join the new religion, Khala, which telepathically linked the Protoss. Zeratul is the only one who managed to kill a Zerg cerebrate, Zasz to be specific, until then they were considered immortal. Unfortunately, when he killed the cerebrate, a link between him and the Overmind, the Zerg’s commander, was created. Zeratul began to see the Overmind's thoughts and plans, but so did the Overmind. That's how the Zerg Swarm learned the location of Aiur. Despite being banished from his home-world, Zeratul continued to watch over the Protoss race and to protect it. Zeratul managed to unite with the Protoss’s commander, Executor Tassadar. Together they tried to reunite the Protoss race and prepare it for the upcoming battles with the Zerg. However this plan failed, the Swarm attacked and overran Aiur. The planet was already lost, but Zeratul and Tassadar succeeded in killing the Zerg's Overmind. After that they returned to Aiur, in order to help the few survivors escape from the dying planet and flee to the Dark Templar's world - Shakuras. In the years that followed, Zeratul had to protect the survivors from the Dark Archon, Ulrejaz, who also wanted to destroy them. However, this time Zeratul managed to neutralize the threat and to defeat the evil archon.
Now Zeratul is even more disturbed, due to a dark prophecy. The Dark Templar managed to capture one of the Queen of Blades’ agents, Samir Duran. But he started to talk about a greater force he was serving. From this day on Zeratul is searching for an answer to the Duran's words and the prophecy.
Her psionic potential showed up early, when she was a little child. In an act of anger at her mother, Kerrigan received a massive brain stroke and transmitted powerful psionic waves that burst her mother’s head and killed her. Her father witnessed the horrible accident and lost his mind. This event attracted the Confederacy’s attention and they took her to be trained in the Ghost program. There she showed extreme potential, more than anybody else, and the Confederacy were forced to change their methods, in order to train and measure her properly. After her training was completed, Kerrigan became the Confederacy's best assassin. She was the one to slaughter Mengsk's family, but when Arcturus captured her, instead of killing her, he brainwashed her and used her against the Confederacy. During her service in the Sons of Korhal, she met Jim Raynor and they quickly built trust in each other, which later on grew into something even more. In the last battle, on the planet Tarsonis, with the Confederacy Mengsk did not miss the chance to execute his long-craved revenge. He left Kerrigan on the planet to be torn apart by the upcoming Zerg Swarm.
But something very strange happened. The Zerg's leader, the Overmind, felt her great psionic power and decided to spare her life and made her his most powerful weapon and commander. After the horrible transplanting and mutation, Kerrigan was transformed into the deadly Queen of Blades. Unfortunately for the Overmind, she soon overthrew him and the former Sarah Kerrigan is not in control of the Zerg's countless legions.
