  The Velari Tribe is a protoss tribe of the Templar Caste. Its tribal color is yellow.


The Velari Tribe was unheard of by the Shelak Tribe by the late Aeon of Strife period.[1] 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.[2]

During the Great War, the Velari helped to defend Aiur against the zerg. They participated in the protection of the khaydarin crystals[3] and in the defense of the sacred protoss temple[4] 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.[5]

By 2503[6] the Velari Tribe had no representation in the Hierarchy.[7]

Known MembersEdit


The name Velari is possibly derived from the Latin word velati, which means "the reserves".
