The Elite Guard of the Sons of Korhal were a military unit within the rebel movement, distinct from Alpha Squadron.[1][2][3]

The Elite Guard appeared as a Terran Dominion unit several times within the Brood War.[4][5][6][7][8]

During the Second Great War, strike teams of the Elite Guard were deployed during the invasion of Korhal to repel the initial planetfall of the Zerg Swarm, but failed to stop the zerg from securing a foothold on the world.[9] The elite guard took command of the final defense around the Korhal Palace as the zerg advanced into the city, but failed to defend their emperor.[10]

Two Elite Guard marines defended Emperor Valerian Mengsk during the Defenders of Man Insurgency as he made his speech on Vardona exposing the Defenders of Man.[11]

Game UnitEdit

In the final three missions of Heart of the Swarm, numerous "elite guard" units appear. They use modified base model units, similar to mercenaries, and have higher stats than normal units. The enemy forces in the final mission produce elite guard-type units instead of normal forces, with the exception of units that do not have a counterpart unit in the elite guard.

A unit named the Elite Guard appears in the Nova Covert Ops mission "In the Enemy's Shadow" alongside Valerian Mengsk with the model of the Son of Korhal marine. They are invulnerable.[11]

NotesEdit

Computer-controlled red terrans are always referred to as the "elite guard" in the victory/defeat area of single-player StarCraft games.
