Talis contacting Zeratul

After the defeat of Emil Narud at Skygeirr Station during the reunification of the Zerg Swarm during the Second Great War, the Tal'darim abducted templar and brought them to a Moebius Foundation space station for conversion into hybrids. Talis tracked the templar to the station, but found themselves under attack by the zerg, and requested the aid of Dark Prelate Zeratul, to which he agreed.[5] As Zeratul arrived, it was revealed that Sarah Kerrigan was leading the Swarm as part of her war against Amon. She warned the protoss to stay out of her way, and continued the assault unabated. However, the protoss were able to rescue their brethren while evading the Swarm. Zeratul, seeking information on Amon and a prophecy that he believed would aid the Firstborn in the coming conflict, tracked the fallen xel'naga's place of rebirth to the Temple of Erris on the world of Atrias. Talis accompanied him as repayment for his assistance.[4]

The temple was the domain of Highlord Ma'lash. Talis's forces breached the Tal'darim defenses and allowed Zeratul to infiltrate the structure. Talis remained outside[2] and prevented Tal'darim and hybrid forces from reinforcing the temple's internal security. Within, Zeratul found the last piece of the prophecy but was forced to flee as the temple was collapsed by Amon. Talis withdrew her forces into the temple and remained inside to buy the Dark Templar time to escape.[3]

Main article: Talis (Purifier)

By the later stages of the End War, a Purifier construct of Talis had been created, and fought alongside Talandar. She possessed the ability to inhabit the shell of Purifier adepts.[6]

Game UnitEdit

Talis uses the adept portrait and model with increased stats, but does not have any special abilities. Her unit becomes invincible at low HP.

Unlike normal hero units, Talis's rank on her game unit is not set to "Praetor," and instead begins as "recruit" and changes as she kills enemies, like normal units.
