Plot option : Raynor's Raiders choose to protect Haven (A canon)
PurifierMothership SC2 Game2

A purifier attacks a colony base on Haven.

A purifier was used by High Executor Selendis to attack the terran colony on Haven during the Second Great War; the protoss detected zerg infestation spores amongst the colonists and moved to liquidate them. Commander Jim Raynor refused to condemn the colonists who had not yet manifested symptoms of infestation. The ship was destroyed by Raynor's Raiders and the colony was saved.[2]

Plot option ends here

A purifier reappeared as a major staging ground during the reclamation of Aiur, teleporting units to Kherrisan.[3]

Game UnitEdit

The StarCraft II mothership had the "Planet Cracker" ability during development.[4] The ability is used by the Purifier.[2]

The Purifier projects an aura similar to a pylon or warp prism, enabling units to be warped-in.[5] The Purifier can summon air units.[2]

If "Safe Haven" is played on Brutal the Purifier can detect cloaked and burrowed units.
