Artanis SC2 Head3

The current hierarch, Artanis

Hierarch is a rank in the Daelaam in protoss society.[1] The hierarch is the designated leader of the Hierarchy, and as such is effectively the absolute leader of the Daelaam.

The first and current hierarch is Artanis. Following the formation of the Hierarchy, the remnants of the Judicator Caste, in agreement with the clans of the Nerazim, elected him to the position.[2]

In protoss culture, there is a formal greeting protocol when first addressing the Hierarch in a diplomatic situation.[3]
