"My people have always loved Aiur. We share the devastation of the refugees on Shakuras. A weapon that can help us fight the zerg must be investigated, no matter how dangerous or uncertain it is."

Zoraya is a female Nerazim pilot.

Biography[edit | edit source]

The Hunt for the Colossus[edit | edit source]

Like with all of her brethren, her cranial appendages were severed, keeping her from ever again accessing the Khala.

She and the high templar Telbrus did not get along well, but Aldrion, the commander of the mission, made sure that it did not interfere with their performance. When they encountered the zerg, Zoraya used her maneuvering skills to allow them to escape and continue their mission. She landed the ship on the target asteroid and tried to repair some vital systems.

Eventually, and thanks to the sacrifice made by Aldrion, Zoraya was able to get the rest of the team and the colossus safely off the asteroid and away from the zerg.[1]

End War[edit | edit source]

AlliedCommanders SC2-LotV Art1.jpg

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

In an alternate timeline where Zeratul survived the early stages of the End War, Zoraya commanded a legion of void rays to aid the dark prelate in battle.[2]

Game Unit[edit | edit source]

Zoraya appears as the leader of the summonable Legendary Legion for Zeratul in Co-op Missions, deploying alongside a number of void rays. While she and her forces cannot be directly commanded, they can be indirectly guided to target locations using the top bar. At Level 8, Zorya and her void rays gain Prismatic Range, increasing their range as they attack.[2]

Notes[edit | edit source]

In the BlizzCon 2018 build for Zeratul, Zoraya used the model of Mohandar, in spite of being a female protoss. Similarly, in a blog post, Zoraya is referred to erroneously as a "he."[3] Interestingly, the current in-game unit still uses the Mohandar actor.
