- Motto of the Venatir Scout pilots(Unsourced)
A lot of the Protoss you rescue in Episode 4 mission 1 are Venatir, and Aldaris' forces in mission 7 are Venatir. Should we perhaps mention these two occurrences? Doreiku Kuroofangu 01:07, June 20, 2010 (UTC)
No. In the first case, the rescued protoss are simply rescued protoss, with nothing to logically indicate they were all from the same tribe. In the second case, Aldaris' forces consisted of both Judicators and Templar, so presumably from different tribes. Assigning tribe names (or brood names, or terran faction names) is an art, not a science, at least in StarCraft I. PSH aka Kimera 757 (talk) contribs) 01:08, June 20, 2010 (UTC)
Brown Protoss as Hero Faction Edit
Although in Retail Starcraft all Protoss heroes - Tassadar, Fenix and Zeratul - are given as Teal units, it might be possible that it wasn't original intention at the begining. The Unused Terran Mission 7 (Biting The Bullet) and Unused Protoss Mission 1 gives you command of Tassadar and Fenix, but instead of being Teal, they are Brown. This may explain why before Brood War, there were almost no Brown Protoss faction present in game and why there is no mention of them. Unused Protoss Mission also hints that playable unit faction would not be Yellow Velari Tribe, but Teal Akilae Tribe instead. And Akilae Tribe is said to be the most Templar of Templar Tribes, even their emblem is now the most recognisable and is synonymous of Templar Caste in StarCraft II. It seems that some of these concepts remained in Zerg Campaign as well - when you assault Aiur in last two missions, you face Akilae Tribe (Teal) as the main force, Venatir Tribe (Yellow) as the reserve defense and Auriga Tribe (Orange) as the Great Fleet. Even on Char you were facing both Blue Sargas Tribe (Representing the Dark Templar, look at their emblem) and Teal Akilae Tribe (Representing Koprulu Expeditionary Fleet). Teal Protoss were just another standard Protoss force, they were like Alpha Squadron of Terran Squadrons.
