The following section contains information from Heroes of the Storm that is ambiguously canonical.

"Cpl. Miles "Blaze" Lewis has always been drawn to the flame, but it wasn't until he joined up with Raynor's Raiders that he put his pyromania to good use. He's seen his fair share of battles since then, and has never failed to bring the heat."

- Character description(src)

Corporal Miles "Blaze" Lewis is a veteran firebat of the Terran Dominion, and formerly a member of Raynor's Raiders.

A pyromaniac, Lewis has seen his fair share of battles[1] against both the zerg and protoss. Unlike many firebats, Lewis isn't a resocialized criminal, doesn't smoke, and dislikes the smell of napalm in the morning. He has had training for covert missions.[2]

Blaze

Lewis's infatuation with fire began in his childhood. Later in life, he had the opportunity to join Raynor's Raiders and fight for the future of the Terran Dominion. He hesitated, but when he learned he could become a firebat, that sealed the deal. His tendency for pyromania earned him the nickname "Blaze."[3] After the fall of Arcturus Mengsk, Lewis joined the Dominion Armed Forces. He heard of the disappearance of Jim Raynor after the End War, and wondered what happened to his former commander.[2]

Alternate HistoryEdit

AlliedCommanders SC2-LotV Art1

This article or section contains information derived from Co-op Missions, and should not be considered part of the official StarCraft storyline.

In a "what if" timeline where Tychus Findlay survived the Battle of Char, Tychus reformed the Heaven's Devils to help combat Amon's Forces during the End War. Lewis was brought in on odd jobs as the squad's firebat as Tychus was a friend to Raynor, and helped put the minions of Amon to the torch.[4]

DevelopmentEdit

In early builds of Tychus's Outlaws in Co-op Missions, Blaze's role was initially supposed to be filled by a hellbat/hellion outlaw, which would have been designed around the Druid class from World of Warcraft. In hellion form, it could heal allies, whereas in hellbat form it dealt damage. However when the number of abilities per Outlaw were scaled down to one, it was found that the hellion had too many abilities.[5]
