|De facto leader|
Protoss Empire (?–2500)
Active, exiled from Aiur
The Velari Tribe was unheard of by the Shelak Tribe by the late Aeon of Strife period. Regardless, with the unification of the protoss under the Khala and the creation of the caste system, the Velari were seemingly organized under the Templar Caste.
During the Great War, the Velari helped to defend Aiur against the zerg. They participated in the protection of the khaydarin crystals and in the defense of the sacred protoss temple alongside the Ara, Akilae and Auriga Tribes. However, despite their efforts, the zerg managed to destroy the protoss defenses, resulting in the Overmind implanting itself on the planet.
The name Velari is possibly derived from the Latin word velati, which means "the reserves".
