Protoss government body/armed forces
Because of the Discord, protoss society came to be split into two—the Khalai of the Protoss Empire and the exiled Nerazim, who came to settle on Shakuras. Because of the Great War and subsequent Brood War, the former body collapsed and both branches of protoss were forced to band together for mutual survival. This included sharing and integrating technology.
The Second Great WarEdit
A Daelaam force led by Praetor Karass tracked the Queen of Blades to Ulaan and aided Dark Templar Prelate Zeratul in his quest to find fragments of an ancient prophecy, sacrificing themselves to cover his escape.
Raynor's Raiders battled against the Daelaam forces led by High Executor Selendis to provide Dr. Ariel Hanson more time to discover a cure for the zerg hyper-evolutionary virus, which had infested the Agrian colonists. The Raiders defeated the protoss and Haven was saved.
The Raiders decided to help purify the world of Haven and took the protoss' place in destroying the infestation. After the job was done, the Daelaam gave Raynor a plaque honoring his effort.
However, over time, the protoss have begun sliding into tribalism. Knowing that reclaiming Aiur was the only shared interest of both the Khalai and Nerazim, Hierarch Artanis led an attempted reclamation of the planet. However, the invasion was thrown into disarray by Amon, who corrupted the Khala. Artanis and his followers were forced to sever their nerve appendages and create a new society that did not use it as its basis. The Daelaam would be a unification of the Khalai, Nerazim, Tal'darim, and Purifiers.
