"The xeno was there, standing in a doorway. It looked much like the depiction on Benz's wall: a cross between protoss and zerg anatomy, with a thin face, an expansive carapace headpiece, segmented plates over spindly limbs, and massive black claws. It was towering and hulking, a dominating presence, strange and unique and wholly alien. And its eyes...its eyes reminded Dorian very much of the relic's black surface. A vast, immeasurable void waited behind those orbs, and Dorian felt himself falling into them, becoming lost."

A hybrid reaver

The hybrid reaver is an extremely powerful zerg-based type of hybrid.[1] They are capable of basic speech, and can exert control over zerg[2] and terrans through mind control.[3]

HistoryEdit

A reaver's visage

A hybrid reaver was created in a secret Terran Dominion facility at Castanar.[4]

MattHornerMissions SC2 Icon1

This article or section contains information from the optional Rebellion Missions in StarCraft II: Wings of Liberty.

Raynor's Raiders discovered the creature and destroyed its holding cell. When the cell was destroyed, the reaver then proceeded to destroy the facility. The Raiders barely escaped into a Hercules, after which the reaver "screamed" at them.[4]

ArmageddonEdit

In a dark apocalyptic future foreseen by the Overmind and others through it, many hybrid reavers were deployed to help destroy the protoss during their last stand.[5]

Skygeirr StationEdit

Sarah Kerrigan and her zerg minions encountered many hybrid reavers on Skygeirr Station. These reavers, along with a band of Tal'darim protoss, were under the control of the shapeshifter Emil Narud.[6]

Legacy of the VoidEdit

"This is the end of your race."

However, they were slain.[2] Reavers were encountered on Korhal, Shakuras, Cybros, Ulnar, Slayn, and on Aiur when the Daelaam returned to the world.[7][8][9] [10] [11]

Hybrid reavers are encountered as enemies throughout the campaigns of StarCraft II. Unlike the hybrid destroyer, reavers focus on physical attacks.

In the Heart of the Swarm campaign, enhanced hybrid reavers, simply called "Hybrid", appear as enemies in the level "Phantoms of the Void." These reavers have the same stats and abilities as Legacy of the Void's hybrid behemoths.[6]

DevelopmentEdit

HybridViper SC2 DevArt1

The hybrid viper

Originally the protoss-based hybrid destroyer was the only type of hybrid unit in StarCraft II. The idea of a zerg-based hybrid had been pitched by Samwise Didier in concept art,[1] (labelled as a "high breed")[12] but was effectively abandoned for a year. Eventually the idea of a zerg-based hybrid was pitched within the design team and Didier's concept was resurrected as the hybrid viper. In the final game it was known as the hybrid reaver—mostly the same, but unlike the viper, it had tentacles coming off its back,[1] that aren't visible on lower graphic settings (the player must set "effects" to medium or above).

Heroes of the StormEdit

Heroes DevLog2

The following section contains information from Heroes of the Storm and is not canon to StarCraft continuity

A hybrid reaver hero has been listed as being under consideration for inclusion in Heroes of the Storm.[13]
