"I will be among the first to spill zerg blood. I am akhundelar. The tip of the spear."

Akhundelar assault team

The position of Akhundelar (lit. "tip of the spear") is one employed by the Protoss Empire[1] and later, the Daelaam. Warriors who are akhundelar (a voluntary position in some, if not all cases) are sent in the first wave of an attack. Such is the nature of these missions that death is an outcome of high, if not absolute certainty.[2][3]
