Lore[edit]

Ex-confederate marshal James Raynor has stood against whatever the universe can throw at him and survived with just a few scars and a penchant for Scotty Bolger's whiskey. He now stands as a bright beacon of hope in the face of a corrupt government, enigmatic protoss, and ferocious all-consuming zerg...No wonder the man drinks.
