Destroyed by the zerg
The Conclave were a group of elders, chosen for their wisdom and their knowledge and orthodoxy in relation to the Khala. The Ara Tribe controlled who presided within the Conclave, as it maintained the power within the Judicator caste. In addition the Ara commanded the khalen'ri Praetor Guard, the personal guard and enforcement arm of the Conclave.
While the Conclave existed, it never allowed females into the organization.
The Conclave was formed during the Second Age.
Early on the Conclave forbade entry into the Aiur caverns where Khas rediscovered the protoss psionic link. The Conclave also hid the discovery of a xel'naga ship from protoss society, although it allowed extremely limited and controlled access to reverse engineer its technologies.
The Conclave directed that all texts and artifacts from the Aeon of Strife be sealed away on the xel'naga archive world of Zhakul upon taking power. The information was entrusted to a trio of preservers.
The Dark TemplarEdit
The Conclave kept secret the existence of a group of rogue protoss that refused to submit to the Khala, convinced that their aberrant influence might spread throughout protoss society and destroy all that Khas had accomplished. They ordered Adun to eradicate them. When Aiur was rocked by a series of violent psionic storms, the Conclave was shocked that the Templar had not destroyed the rogues, but knew that it would be forced to publicly admit their existence if it punished Adun for insubordination. The Conclave decided to banish the rogues from Aiur. This act earned them the hatred of the Dark Templar.
The Zerg InvasionEdit
When Executor Tassadar brought a number of zerg probes to Aiur in 2499, the Conclave referred to the terrans as "worthless" and argued that if they had already been infested, they were to be purified. Upon hearing that Chau Sara had been infested, the Conclave immediately ordered Tassadar to burn it.
The Conclave became convinced that its stratagems were winning the war against the zerg after the destruction of the hive cluster near Scion. Turning their attention to personal matters, they ordered Judicator Aldaris to find and arrest Tassadar and bring him to Aiur to stand trial for treason.
The Conclave branded Tassadar a traitor upon Aldaris' return to Aiur. The Heart of the Conclave was destroyed by Tassadar's followers, but Tassadar was taken into custody. However, the Conclave was unable to prevent Fenix and Jim Raynor from securing his release. The Conclave lost many members to the civil war.
