Yeti SC2 Cncpt1


Yeti (a.k.a. snow beasts)[1] were fauna[2] which live on Kaldir, a protoss-settled ice world in the Koprulu Sector. A large number of them reside in the Ice Valleys. They are led by yeti matriarchs.[1]

During the Second Great War, Sarah Kerrigan led her nascent brood against them to collect their DNA while also reclaiming the Nafash Brood.[3]

Yeti were replaced by ursadons in more recent versions of Heart of the Swarm.[4]
