    StarCraft: The Legion Project

    Many years have passed since the destruction of the first overmind. Many years have passed since the Ghost operative, Kerrigan fell to the Zerg and dubbed herself the Queen of Blades. Now, twelve years after Kerrigans inevitable defeat at the hands of Rayner's Radiers, a new enemy has arisen...

    The Legion was formed about a year after the destruction of the second overmind. Jim Raynor and his raiders were conducting raids on the Terran Dominion for weapons and supplies. On one of their raids they found a group of 120 children in a sublevel of a Dominion installation. These children were candidates for the Ghost program. The raiders took the children and fled the station.

    Upon returning to their own base, they conducted physicals on the children and found that while they had not undergone full ghost training, some of their latent psionic abilities had been awakened. If they did not recieve proper training, their powers would continue to grow and they would not have the discipline to control them.

    Raynor took this problem to the Protoss. The Protoss agreed to train the children on the condition that they would not be solely a human force and would assist with the defense of Shakuras. Raynor agreed. The children began their tutelage under the Protoss.

    The Protoss and Terrans were both impressed by the psionic abilities of the Legionnaires. Without the inhibitors that Ghosts normally possessed, their powers rose to match the abilities of some Protoss warriors, and in a much shorter time. Their training completed in about 8 years, and were split into ten 10-man teams, each with it's own specialty. To enhance the capabilities of the whole, the members of each team are rotated periodically.

    OOG: Just a note- The only guys from Earth are members of the United Earth Directorate (who were enemies of both Rayner and Mengsk before they got beaten by Kerrigan). Anyone else stopped being from Earth several centuries ago.

    Technically, you don't have a nationality (or at least, not one of any real significance to us Earthers) as most of you originate on various planets in the Koprulu Sector, descended from the various settlers who landed there (some planets being the original crash sites for the first prison vessels (don't have my manual on hand) from Earth, others from those who expanded from the crash zones).

    Hmmm... the Terran history from the manual might actually be pretty useful, along with other mentions of various Starcraft thingies.

    For starters, [link=]Wikipedia[/link]

    And [link=]Starcraft Wiki[/link]

    OOC: Turncoats exist on both sides of the war, Light. And who said that everyone who was from the UED Died or fled? Maybe somebody besides the UED came? They proved it was possible to reach this galaxy, why stop at that? Who's to say a crazy russian didn't catapult himself and his family into space to escape the oppression on the planet? I made this character with those possiblities in mind, not just a copy and paste job. I apprieciate your concern, and see where you are coming from, but I don't see the reason why a character could not have come from our little blue planet a long long time ago.

    GM Intervention:no need to get jumpy people, Light wasn't in the wrong on anything but neither was Arclite. I too, was opening up the possibilities of survivors from the original UED, or a group of high class settlers that have somehow worked their way through the chaos of paperwork to get to the colonies...which was going to be a main plotline, but it's not a secret anymore...

    Also, i don't expect their to be much more OOC clutter from now on. I'm working on the first post and recruiting more players, so if anyone knows anyone, TELL THEM TO JOIN!!! I promise it will be fun, especially if you guys throw things at me that I would have never expected.
