Praetor SC2-HotS Decal1

Praetor decal

Praetor is a protoss rank of high standing and prestige. A coveted rank, Artanis became the youngest praetor in protoss history at the age of 262.[1]

As a rank, praetor features as part of the command structure of the Templar Caste, though the Ara Tribe of the Judicator Caste maintained the Conclave Praetor Guard.[2]

Praetor appears equivalent to the Dark Templar rank of prelate, and is sometimes used as a synonym for the latter rank.[2][3][4][5]

Even after the fall of the Conclave, praetors who served as military leaders pledged loyalty to the Daelaam.[6]

  • Praetor Fenix was referred to as "Steward of the Templar."[7] It is unclear whether this is a separate rank or an honorific.
  • A praetor decal is available in StarCraft II upon reaching level 22 with protoss. The decal is the outline of a protoss head, though one with the nerve cords cut. This is noteworthy, as praetor is a Khalai rank, and the decal was implemented in Heart of the Swarm before the Khalai severed their nerve cords.[8]
