Zeratul SC2 Game1

The prophecy of Ulaan foretold the end of the xel'naga cycle by Amon, who would also bring about an apocalyptic restructuring of the cosmos.[1]

HistoryEdit

"On a distant, shadowed world, the protoss will make their final stand. Their heroes will gather, their forces will be marshaled, and they will die bravely. But still, they will die. And my zerg... will be slaves... to the hybrid. All will bow before the power... of the Fallen One."

- Overmind's vision of the future(src)

The prophecy came into being after the fallen xel'naga Amon clashed with his brethren.[2] The prophecy was stored in fragments on Ulaan.[3]

At the end of the Brood War, Zeratul discovered the nascent hybrids on a dark moon.[4] This prompted a search for more information after the war, and he found rumors of the prophecy on Ulaan which he believed foretold the return of the xel'naga. The prelate traveled to the world on the eve of the Second Great War and, despite competition from the Queen of Blades, retrieved the fragments and brought them to the forbidden archive world of Zhakul where they could be interpreted by preservers.[3]

The preservers deciphered the fragments[1] and prompted Zeratul to seek further information form the dead Overmind. With the help of Tassadar's spirit, the dark templar gained access to the creature's vision of the future.[5] Zeratul learned that Kerrigan was essential to stopping Amon and his apocalyptic plans for the future.[6]

Zeratul recorded what he had learned through the prophecy into an ihan crystal. He gave the crystal to Jim Raynor during the Second Great War to ensure Kerrigan's survival.[7] Raynor believed the prelate had delivered the information at some risk to himself.[note 1][8]

Valerian Mengsk also became aware of the prophecy. When he revealed this knowledge, Raynor was surprised.[9]

Preserver InterpretationEdit

"In the fullness of time
The cycle shall draw to its end.
The xel'naga, who forged the stars,
Will transcend their creation....

Yet, the Fallen One shall remain,
Destined to cover the Void in shadow...

Before the stars wake from their
Celestial courses,
He shall break the cycle of the gods,
Devouring all light and hope.

It begins with the Great Hungerer.
It ends in utter darkness."

- The Zhakul preservers speak(src)
