"...any ship receiving this transmission...the zerg are invading Agria...The Dominion abandoned us here ...We're just a small farming colony. We've got to evacuate before we're overrun....If you can hear this message, please help us!"

- Dr. Ariel Hanson's distress call(src)

Agria is a formerly Terran Dominion-governed Fringe World. The colony was founded by Dr. Bernard Hanson and became one of the Dominion's principal botanical and wildlife preserves along with its status as a small farming colony.[2]

History

AgriaColony SC2-WoL Story1

Colonial flag.

Agria was founded by renowned Terran Confederacy terraforming expert Dr. Bernard Hanson, who became the colony's chairman.[3]

Agria remained safe and prosperous. When the Confederacy fell, control of Agria was transferred to the Terran Dominion, and a permanent defense force was stationed there.[3]

In August 2502, the small town of Hudderstown Colony, inspired by rebel leader Castor Mezzo, was almost exterminated by a single female ghost. The town was rescued by the War Pigs, a band of outlaws, who killed Mezzo before leaving. A Dominion official, visiting the town afterward, considered the colonists "irrelevant".[4]

In 2503 pirates stormed Agria seeking hi-tech scientific equipment. Dominion marines fought the pirates to save the technology, but colonists caught in the crossfire were slaughtered.[3]

Agria's evacuation

At the outbreak of the Second Great War, Agria was invaded by the zerg and the planet and colonists were abandoned by the Dominion military. The colonists attempted to reach the main starport, but the remaining defenses were quickly overwhelmed and it was no longer feasible to run convoys from the colony to the port. Doctor Ariel Hanson, colony leader, broadcast a general appeal for assistance. Among others, some people from Larks' Crossing still awaited rescue.[2]

Farewell, Agria

Hanson's distress call was answered by Raynor's Raiders. The Raiders escorted the colonists to the starport and to safety.[2] The Agrian colonists traveled to the general refugee staging point at Meinhoff.[5]

Notes

Early development images of Agria depicted it as being a somewhat barren world.[6]
