Occupation

Praetor

Steward of the Templar

Zealot (?—May, 2500) Dragoon (2500)

Fenix was a protoss zealot, and praetor of the Protoss Defense Forces. He personally led his fellow warriors into battle against those who called themselves the enemies of the Protoss Empire.[1] Revered by his warrior-brethren, he was dubbed the Steward of the Templar.[2] Dark Prelate Zeratul described Fenix as being "as stalwart a warrior as I have ever known"[3] and Kerrigan acknowledged him as being "uncannily resourceful."[4] He has proven himself to be one of the strongest protoss warriors of all time.[5]

BiographyEdit

Fenix rose through the Templar ranks alongside his friends Artanis and Tassadar and fought against the enemies of the protoss in countless battles.[1][6]

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

One such world was Dannuth VII, inhabited by a race called the tagal. Fenix and Artanis led their forces against them and although the protoss were outnumbered 30:1, they still emerged victorious.[7][8]

The Great WarEdit

The Invasion of AiurEdit

"You know, Executor, although we two have marched across hundreds of worlds together, I never imagined that we would be fighting on Aiur. The Zerg are indeed worthy foes."

- Fenix(src)

FenixZealot SC1 HeadAnim1

Praetor Fenix

When the zerg invaded Aiur, Fenix stood in defense of the province of Antioch, guarding a strategic outpost. However, his forces were nearly overwhelmed by the zerg. Judicator Aldaris sent Fenix's old comrade, the new executor, to rescue him, and together they defeated the zerg incursion.[9]

When Tassadar contacted Aldaris with information about zerg cerebrates, a weak spot in their hierarchy, Fenix agreed to test the new strategy for Tassadar over Aldaris' objection.[10] The test, however, was a failure, as they had not received complete information from Tassadar.[11]

FenixZealot SC1 CineFallOfFenix1

Fenix guarding Antioch

Aldaris ordered a strike against the zerg forces in the province of Scion, leaving Fenix behind with a small force to defend the outpost in Antioch.[12]

Unfortunately, during the second battle of Antioch, Fenix was defeated by the zerg.[2] Fenix was nearly ambushed by a hydralisk; as he sought to slay his foe, his psionic blades ceased to function.[13] Fenix's ruined body was recovered and placed into a dragoon exo-skeleton.[14]

Return to AiurEdit

"Greetings Executor! And greetings to you, Tassadar. I am overjoyed to see you both return home in this dark hour. The Zerg have redoubled their efforts, and it seems-"
"It can't be! The Executor told me of how you fell before the Zerg. How is it that you live and breathe?"
"Ha hah... Well, after my unfortunate defeat, my ruined body was recovered by our brethren. I now reside within the cold, robotic shell of a Dragoon."

- Fenix greets Tassadar upon the latter's return(src)

When Tassadar returned to Aiur, Fenix gladly joined his rebellion against the Conclave.[14] Tassadar was surprised to see Fenix alive, and in the shell of a dragoon.[15] Fenix, along with Zeratul and his Dark Templar, assisted in the destruction of the Heart of the Conclave, but Tassadar, unwilling to let his brethren continue killing each other, surrendered and was spirited away by Aldaris.[16]

The Dark Templar vanished, and Fenix wondered if it was a good idea for Tassadar to have put any faith into them.[17] Fenix refused to stand by while the Conclave prepared to execute Tassadar. Joined by Tassadar's terran companion, Jim Raynor, Fenix embarked on a desperate rescue attempt. The would-be rescuers were surrounded by the Conclave's troops as they reached Tassadar's stasis cell,[18] and were in turn rescued by Zeratul and the Dark Templar.[19]

Protoss SC1 Game1

Fenix leading protoss forces

Fenix proposed sending his forces to engage the primary zerg hive clusters to thin out their numbers, enabling Zeratul to slay a pair of cerebrates. He believed the Overmind would be distracted by the attack long enough for the protoss to assault it directly. Fenix personally joined in the attacks.[20] The protoss, Fenix included, moved through the weakened zerg defenses around the Overmind.[21] The attack was failing until Tassadar sacrificed himself to destroy the Overmind.[22]

The Brood WarEdit

Fenix's AlliancesEdit

"Don't let the fact that I am three hundred and sixty eight years older than you dull your impression of me, young Raynor. I can still... how do you Terrans say it... "Throw down with the best of them!""

- Fenix(src)

FenixRaynorZergling SC1 Game1

Fenix and Raynor hold off the zerg

The death of the Overmind caused the zerg to rampage across Aiur. The Conclave was destroyed and seventy percent of the population was killed. Fenix joined Aldaris, Zeratul, and Raynor to unite and lead the scattered survivors.[23] The refugees followed Zeratul's plan of traveling to Shakuras through the sole functioning warp gate on Aiur. At the gate, a large force of zerg attacked them; however, Fenix and Raynor arrived and fought the zerg long enough for the refugees to escape.[24] Fenix and Raynor didn't make it through the gate, however.[3] Instead, they fought to secure their end of the gate[25] and close it so that more zerg could not reach Shakuras. Despite the overwhelming odds, Fenix and Raynor decided to fight to the end.[26] While there, Fenix and Raynor were contacted by Sarah Kerrigan, who told them about the new Overmind and the United Earth Directorate's plans for controlling it.[27] Protoss forces rescued Emperor Arcturus Mengsk from the UED, which had just defeated him, and spirited him away to Aiur.[28]

The UED pursued, and Fenix's refugee base was destroyed by the Earth-borne humans and by zerg attacks, but not before Raynor and Mengsk escaped through the gate. The warp gate self-destructed immediately afterwards.[29] Kerrigan later contacted Fenix and Raynor on Shakuras,[30] asking for their help.[27]

Fenix and Raynor joined an unusual alliance with Kerrigan and Mengsk on Tarsonis in order to oppose the UED, which now had control of the Overmind and numerous zerg minions, and were bolstered by their anti-zerg weapon, the psi disrupter. Fenix never trusted Kerrigan,[27][31][32] but he followed Raynor's lead.

Following the destruction of the psi disrupter by Kerrigan's forces (with assistance from Raynor and Mengsk), enabling Kerrigan to partially rebuild her forces, the allies plotted to free Korhal from the Directorate forces. In order to do so, Kerrigan needed ten thousand units of minerals to build up her primary hive clusters, and the best place to acquire that kind of wealth was Moria, one of the largest resource nodes in the sector. Of course, its ruling power, the Kel-Morian Combine, would object to this kind of invasion. Fenix said that if it would better their chances, he would personally lead the invasion.

FenixUltralisk SC1 Game1

Fenix and the zerg on Moria

Fenix personally led the zerg forces in acquiring the minerals from Moria. During the battle, Fenix disdained the fuel raid he was on, wishing he could fight the huge epic battles of his youth.[33] Raynor jokingly accused him of sounding like a tired, old man, but Fenix replied he could still "throw down with the best of them."[31]

During the battle, Fenix wondered why the Kel-Morian Combine did not oppose the UED, which had overthrown their former masters, the Terran Dominion.[34]

The raid was successful, after which the allies traveled to Tarsonis.[33]

Khala's EndEdit

"The Khala awaits me, Kerrigan. And although I am prepared to face my destiny, you'll not find me easy prey!"

- Fenix's epitaph(src)

On the UED-conquered world of Korhal (formerly the Dominion throne world), Fenix and Raynor struck at the UED's more outlying fortification, while Kerrigan's troops assaulted the main UED base at Augustgrad.[35]

Dragoon SC1 Game2

Fenix's body

While they defeated the Directorate and their enslaved zerg, Kerrigan and Samir Duran engineered a betrayal.[4] Fenix, who was not entirely surprised,[32] prepared to face her forces on the battlefield.[36] Fenix fell to the Swarm.[4]

LegacyEdit

"What have you done?"
"What I had to."
"Tell that to Fenix! Tell it to the millions you butchered!"

Upon his death, Kerrigan mocked Raynor, saying that Fenix died the way all protoss hope to do: in combat.[37] Enraged, Raynor swore he would kill Kerrigan for this betrayal.[38] In the final battle of the Brood War, Praetor Artanis led a protoss attack against Kerrigan, partly aimed at avenging Fenix.[39] The attack was unsuccessful, however.[40]

Even five years later, Fenix's death was a sore spot for Raynor, one that he brought up with Kerrigan when she re-infested herself.[41]

Fenix appears as a super-powered dragoon in True Colors. Killing him is one of the mission objectives. An easy way to do so is to use a queen's spawn broodling ability on him, which will kill Fenix instantly.

QuotationsEdit

See: Fenix Quotations

Heroes of the StormEdit

Fenix may be a playable hero in Heroes of the Storm.[43]

NotesEdit

"Fenix" is the Middle English word for "phoenix," a bird from Greek mythology that is cyclically reborn.

In the StarCraft: Brood War campaign, protoss structures use Fenix's dragoon portrait instead of Aldaris's portrait.

    Aldaris: "Tassadar of the Templar, by your actions you have severed yourself from the mercy of your brethren. You refused to destroy the Terran worlds as was commanded. You have questioned time and time again, the sacred will of the Conclave. And you have abandoned your Homeworld in its darkest hour. Most grievous of all is that you have allied yourself with the blasphemous Dark Ones, and learned to utilize their profane powers in tandem with our own! What say you, oh fallen Templar?"
    Tassadar: "Aldaris, I submit myself to the Conclave's judgment. But know this, given the same choices again, I would surely have made them. I have sacrificed all that our world might live. I have sullied my honor, I have discarded my rank and standing, and I have even broken our own most ancient traditions. But never think that I would, for one moment, regret my actions.

    Zeratul: "You speak of knowledge, Judicator? You speak of experience? I have journeyed through the darkness between the most distant stars. I have beheld the births of negative-suns and borne witness to the entropy of entire realities... Unto my experience, Aldaris, all that you've built here on Aiur is but a fleeting dream.
