"Hey man. I was wondering if you could do me a little favor."

Commanders are powerful goliath pilots. They only do jobs that give them a good payoff.[1]


At some point after the Brood War, powerful Commanders were tasked by Jim Raynor with defending Planet Christmas from the Zergrinch, being the only ones close enough to the planet to do anything about it. Instead of payment, they would be put on Santa Claus' "good-guy list". To this end, they personally led a force from goliaths, defeating the zerg forces.[1]


There are two Commanders (one for each player) in Operation Claws.[1]

The Commander may represent the former magistrate of Mar Sara and later Sons of Korhal commander.
