Taldarin is a protoss dragoon, holding the rank of praetor. He was introduced in the StarCraft 64 map Resurrection IV. He took part in the mission on Braxis to de-infest Alexei Stukov. To date, it is his only appearance.[1]


During the mission to rescue Infested Stukov, Taldarin revealed his history to his ally, the terran Jim Raynor. He claimed to have been a personal friend of the protoss hero, Adun. He was injured in action long ago, and survived only by being placed within a stasis cell. When the dragoon technology was invented, he was freed from stasis and placed within one so that he could continue to battle the protoss' enemies.[1]

Recent ActionsEdit

Taldarin has known Raynor for some time and fought beside him before. Raynor only knew of him as an "old-timer" before the mission on Braxis.

Together, the two confronted Infested Stukov's forces on Braxis, fighting their way through and successfully freeing him from the zerg. Taldarin, Raynor and Stukov escaped from Braxis, which was then "purified" by the protoss, wiping out all life there.[1]


Though Taldarin says that he fought with Adun three thousand years ago, the actual timeframe is much shorter; Chris Metzen blames this on the timeline not having been firmly pinned down when the mission was written.[2]

Taldarin is indeed canon. He is one of the greatest warriors of the Protoss. He fought alongside the mighty Adun. Wounded in battle, his body was kept in stasis until the dragoon exoskeleton was created. He was one of the first Protoss to become a dragoon. That said, we have begun to nail down the StarCraft timeline since this map was made, so disregard Taldarin's assertion that he fought alongside Adun three millennia before the events of the Resurrection map. Also, Taldarin's body didn't stay in stasis for several thousand years. Both time periods were significantly shorter than that. We'd rather not get more specific right now lest it interfere with the development of StarCraft II, but rest assured that having a fully fleshed out timeline is definitely our goal. <:
