"Every terran commander who’s worth their salt understands the value that a faithful adjutant brings to any dust-ups that may arise in the Koprulu Sector. An adjutant’s ever-present gaze over the field of battle offers a strategic edge, and helps command keep their troops in line. Who knows, deploying one of your own might just save your hide when it all hits the fan."
Adjutant SC2 Head2

Second Great War adjutant

Adjutants are a form of artificial intelligence utilized by the terrans of the Koprulu sector and United Earth Directorate.

OverviewEdit

Adjutant design

Adjutants are sometimes simply addressed as "computer",[1][2] though they're physically humanoid in design.[3] Significant portions of the original ATLAS coding and functionality still exist in them.[4] Terran commanders understand the value that adjutants bring, as their ever-present gaze over the field of battle offers a strategic edge, and helps commanders keep their troops in line.[5] Their functions include navigation,[2] administration,[6] decryption,[7][8] presenting history,[9][10] acting as advisers for terran commanders,[11] storing recipes[12] and storing data. When playing an audio feed, their eyes change color in accordance with speaker.[13][14]


The following section contains information from a previous version of StarCraft II that is ambiguously canonical.

In the past, adjutants were cybernetic, possessing organic components. In contrast, modern adjutants are synthetic.[15]

Early adjutant portrait in StarCraft II

  • In reality, an adjutant is a military rank or appointment, usually serving as an officer who assists a more senior officer.
  • In-game, for both StarCraft and its sequel, an adjutant appears as the terrans' racial icon.
  • In the tutorial screen of StarCraft II: Wings of Liberty, if the player waits long enough after completing all the tutorials, the adjutant will say "I want to be the commander. I also want legs."[19]
  • An adjutant voice pack is available for download for Internet streamers.[5]

Lemon ChickenEdit

If a player waits long enough in the briefing of Boot Camp, an adjutant will ask the magistrate if he's all right. Eventually, the adjutant will deliver a recipe for Chinese lemon chicken, which is as follows:[12]

  • 1 pound sliced chicken breast
  • 1 teaspoon of corn starch
  • 3 teaspoons of soy sauce (dark)
  • 1 sliced lemon[12]
