A hybrid destroyer

The hybrid destroyer is a type of protoss/zerg hybrid. It is primarily based on the former species,[1] sometimes referred to as a "hybrid protoss".[2]

It is a powerful, sentient being wielding psionic and Void-based powers.

History

"Only darkness awaits you."

- Hybrid destroyer(src)

The hybrid destroyer Maar traveled to the protoss world of Zhakul and captured three preservers, as well as controlling some of the protoss defenders stationed on the planet. When Zeratul arrived, seeking interpretation of an ancient prophecy, Maar attacked him, retreating when he was grievously injured only to leech energy from the preservers to regenerate. When the preservers were freed by Zeratul, his energy sources removed, Maar died.[2]

In a dark future foreseen by the Overmind and others through it, hybrid destroyers were deployed in the attack which wiped out the protoss species during their last stand.[3]

On Skygeirr Station, Sarah Kerrigan battled multiple hybrid destroyer variants called "dominators". The dominators were commanded by the shapeshifter Emil Narud, and attempted to drain Kerrigan's life force through their psionic attacks. The dominators were much stronger than the normal destroyers and had abilities similar to those of Maar. [4]

During the End War, the hybrid destroyer served as the staple unit in Amon's hybrid armies.[5]

The "xel'naga destroyer"

The hybrid destroyer was once the only type of hybrid unit in StarCraft II. This was later balanced through the zerg-based hybrid reaver.[6]

StarCraft II beta files list it as a "xel'naga destroyer."[7]

Notes

The hybrid destroyer unit portrait is available in StarCraft II. It is a portrait reward available for the Solo Random 1000 achievement.

The glowing tendrils of hybrid destroyers are similar to angelic wings from the Diablo universe.
