"Rook" was the name for a terran ghost coined by Nova Terra and Malcolm Kelerchian, as per his real name being classified. He was cocky, had an IQ of over 150, and lead his team during his time at Ghost Academy. As of 2503, Rook was fresh out of the Ghost Academy, hence the nickname. That year, he was part of a team of ghosts under the command of Nova Terra as part of counter-insurgency operations against Project Shadowblade. To this end, he was dispatched to investigate events on Altara, with the team finally being wholly assembled on the Palatine. Of the group, he had the highest psi index.
Later, Rook was assigned to the team to defend Arcturus Mengsk from a spectre uprising. However, the group were attacked by spectres and swiftly overwhelmed. The ghosts managed to hold the palace and prevent the Emperor's assassination, but at great cost; all but two ghosts had been killed, and those two had been captured and indoctrinated into the spectre program. It is unknown if Rook was killed or indoctrinated.
