"A tough, no-nonsense military man, he leads this expeditionary force. Steeped in the traditions of his people he can seem arrogant, convinced of his people's innate superiority."

- Character description(src)

The Expedition Leader was the leader of a protoss expedition to Kaldir, and held the rank of executor.

BiographyEdit

"We will never be defeated. We give our lives for the Khala!"
"Yes... you will."

- The final exchange between the Expedition Leader and Broodmother Niadra(src)

The Expedition Leader led the protoss expedition to Kaldir, for the purpose of determining if they could alter the moon's climate in order to establish a colony there. Following the de-infestation of Sarah Kerrigan and the subsequent fragmenting of the Swarm, the Expedition Leader and his troops came into conflict with Broodmother Nafash. The protoss eventually killed Nafash.

When Sarah Kerrigan and her resurgent Swarm arrived on Kaldir, with the intent of collecting Nafash's brood, the Expedition Leader attempted to summon the Golden Armada to destroy her. However, the distance between Kaldir and Shakuras hampered his ability to contact his brethren through the Khala. The Expedition Leader tried to contact Shakuras via psi-link spires, but when Kerrigan destroyed the spires, he ordered a retreat.[2] He later attempted to send shuttles through warp conduits to Shakuras, but Kerrigan foiled this plan as well.[3]

Finally, the leader took his remaining protoss aboard a ship which would take his people back to Shakuras. Kerrigan placed a parasite into Lasarra, whom the Swarm had captured earlier, and tricked the protoss into transporting her aboard. The parasite erupted, killing Lasarra, and eventually became Broodmother Niadra, whose brood destroyed all the escape pods and killed all of the protoss aboard the ship, including the Expedition Leader.[4]

NotesEdit

Some of the Expedition Leader's dialogue will differ depending on what order the missions are done in. If the Kaldir mission is done before the Zerus missions, the Leader will comment on Kerrigan's human appearance. If the Kaldir mission is done after Zerus, the Leader will tell Kerrigan it was foolish of her to come here without all of her Swarm.
