Tyrador IX, part of the Tyrador system, is an important terran colony.

The planet was a popular tourist destination and located some distance from Tarsonis.[1] Many of the resort employees were forced to work to pay off debts.[2]

PlanetologyEdit

TyradorVIII SC2 Art1

Tyrador VIII, with its sister planet Tyrador IX in the background.

Tyrador IX co-orbits with its sister planet, Tyrador VIII, both of them the outermost planets of the system.[2] Tyrador IX appears to be the larger of the two.[3]

The planet has extremes of climate due to the co-orbiting. A change of a few kilometers results in significant changes in temperature, humidity and other aspects of climate,[1] exemplified by deserts being located at the base of snow-capped mountains. Such variable climates have granted the planet equally diverse and unique ecosystems.[2]

HistoryEdit

Early HistoryEdit

Tyrador IX was a core world of the Terran Confederacy[4] and one of the last such worlds to be settled. Many coastal towns were set up and the Old Families possessed numerous private enclaves and estates, some of which were used for family shames.[2] Its economy was shattered, forcing many citizens into debt to various Confederate financial institutions, which often charged them usurious rates. These citizens often became indentured employees at the planet's numerous resorts.[2]

Tyrador IX had seemed safe from rebel attacks, but in 2481 anti-Confederate terrorists attacked the resort town of Elsecaro, going out of their way to kill uniformed marines. They were defeated by visitors, Arcturus Mengsk, an off-duty Confederate lieutenant, and his Umojan girlfriend Juliana Pasteur's security guards. Mengsk was acclaimed a hero by the local militia.[2]

The Great War and AftermathEdit

During the Great War Tyrador IX was used by the Old Families who wished to escape terrorist or alien attacks on Tarsonis.[1] After the fall of the Terran Confederacy, the planet became part of the Terran Dominion. In 2502,[5] the settlement of New Canaan became the site of anti-Dominion riots.[6]

Defenders of Man InsurgencyEdit

"Reports are coming in from major population centers. They detail extensive damage-and high casualties. It seems all evacuation efforts were unsuccessful."
"How many zerg are there?"
"Enough to vastly outnumber our forces, including all of the Dominion personnel on the world below. We are too late, Nova."

During the Defenders of Man Insurgency, Tyrador IX was targeted by the Defenders of Man for a staged feral zerg attack. The Defenders used psi-emitters to lure a swarm to the planet, causing massive civilian casualties and overwhelming the unprepared Dominion forces on the planet. A Defenders of Man fleet then arrived to rescue what civilians they could. Agent Nova Terra and her Covert Ops Crew, who had been investigating the Defenders of Man, arrived and attempted to take out the zerg threat, then deal with the Defenders.[7]

The Death Fleet arrives at Tyrador IX

Nova and her banshees attacked a group of zerg hatcheries, as the Defenders of Man set up a defensive perimeter around a group of civilians. However, the Tal'darim Death Fleet soon arrived, stating they intended to destroy the Defenders of Man. Nova knew that this would cause massive civilian casualties, and decided to take the fight to them. The Tal'darim warped in shield projectors to protect their mothership, as well as a fleet beacon to the nearby Shell Isle. Nova destroyed the shield projectors, exposing the mothership. First Ascendant Ji'nara, the commander of the Tal'darim attack, then sent her mothership against Nova's forces, but it was destroyed. With the Tal'darim destroyed, the Defenders of Man were able to rally and destroy the feral zerg, saving the surviving civilians.[8] In the aftermath, an enraged Dominion population saw Emperor Valerian Mengsk as too weak, and began to protest outside of Korhal Palace, calling for his resignation.[9]
