The Velari Tribe is a protoss tribe. Its tribal color is yellow.

History[edit | edit source]

The Velari Tribe was unheard of by the Shelak Tribe by the late Aeon of Strife period.[1] Regardless, with the unification of the protoss under the Khala and the creation of the caste system.[2] The Velari provided protoss with a deep connection to the Khala, and the Grand Preservers of the Protoss Empire were of the Velari Tribe.[3]

During the Great War, the Velari helped to defend Aiur against the zerg. They participated in the protection of the khaydarin crystals[4] and in the defense of the sacred protoss temple[5] alongside the Ara, Akilae and Auriga Tribes. However, despite their efforts, the zerg managed to destroy the protoss defenses, resulting in the Overmind implanting itself on the planet.[6]

By 2503[7] the Velari Tribe had no representation in the Hierarchy.[8]

Known Members[edit | edit source]

Notes[edit | edit source]

  • The caste affiliation of the Velari is unknown, while they did produce fighting forces during the events of the Great War, the Furinax Tribe, a Khalai Caste tribe, did a well. The caste affiliation of the Grand Preservers the tribes produced is likewise ambiguous.
  • The name Velari is possibly derived from the Latin word velites "skirmishers." (sing. veles) or velati "reserved < unarmed < covered/dressed" (sing. velatus).
