Rebellion against the Sons of Korhal

After the debacle over Tarsonis, Sons of Korhal Captain James Raynor left the organization after feeling betrayed and used by its dissembling leader, Arcturus Mengsk, and due to the fact that Mengsk sacrificed Kerrigan to the Zerg. The Commander, who commanded the operation that led to Kerrigan's capture, also sided with Raynor. Many others felt the same way, and some of the deserters were former Mar Sara militia members under the command of Raynor.

The Raiders had come to an agreement with Infested Kerrigan after the United Earth Directorate entered the Koprulu Sector and conquered the Terran Dominion. Kerrigan offered assistance in combating the UED. Arcturus Mengsk, Emperor of the Dominion, had been deposed by the United Earth Directorate on the Throne World of Korhal IV. The Raiders, with the assistance of Protoss forces and flying the Hyperion, rescued Mengsk. He was placed in stasis.

The United Earth Directorate arrived on Aiur, seeking Mengsk for execution. They discovered the Warp Gate, which was protected by a small Protoss outpost. It appeared to be all the Protoss had left on Aiur. Raynor's outpost was a short distance away - the majority of his forces weren't there, and the Hyperion was nowhere to be seen. The Gate was surrounded by several Zerg Hive Clusters, which were dormant. When the Gate was activated, these Zerg started attacking the Protoss and the UED. Despite these odds, the UED destroyed the Protoss outposts, along with Raynor's Command Center.

Kerrigan provided direct aid to the Raiders - using her secret agent, Infested Duran, supposedly a special advisor to the United Earth Directorate, she created a hole in the UED's defenses.

The Psi Disruptor and Kerrigan's Weakness

Despite Infested Duran's best efforts, the United Earth Directorate activated the powerful anti-Zerg weapon, the Psi Disruptor and revealed Duran as an Infested Terran. They also captured the second Zerg Overmind, putting themselves in control of most Zerg in the Koprulu Sector. Many other Zerg were left uncontrolled. Infested Kerrigan herself could barely keep her own Zerg in line on Tarsonis, where she was hiding out. Lt. ...

In return for destroying the Psi Disruptor, Kerrigan promised Jim Raynor and Fenix that she would topple the United Earth Directorate fleet in the Koprulu Sector. To do this she needed the help of Arcturus Mengsk. Mengsk was "defrosted" and offered a choice - work with Kerrigan, or perpetual imprisonment in stasis.

Fenix and Raynor agreed to work with Kerrigan (and Mengsk had no real choice in the matter), but they believed Kerrigan would betray them. Jim Raynor felt the United Earth Directorate was a greater threat than Kerrigan, however - he knew something of Earth's history. Jim Raynor is a fictional character in the StarCraft universe. ...

Kerrigan's plan called for an attack on Braxis, where the Psi Disruptor had been relocated by Vice Admiral Stukov of the UED. The planet was inhabited by a small number of uncontrolled Zerg. Raynor's Raiders would destroy the Disruptor's fusion reactors, which were poorly guarded, while one of Mengsk's SCVs would carry a psi-emitter to lure the uncontrolled Zerg in the area. These Zerg would fall under the control of Infested Kerrigan, enabling her to rebuild her forces once the Psi Disruptor was destroyed. Braxis is a small cold moon in the StarCraft universe. ...

A Zerg Hydralisk The Zerg are a vaguely insectoid race in the fictional StarCraft universe. ... Sarah Kerrigan—who calls herself the Queen of Blades—is a character in the fictional StarCraft universe. ...


The Raiders' attack, personally led by Raynor, shut down the Disruptor, and with her tiny reinforcements, Kerrigan's Zerg Swarm quickly grew large enough to destroy the UED forces guarding the Disruptor. Finally, she destroyed the Disruptor itself. The UED Expeditionary Force was doomed, even if it did not know it yet.


True Colors

The Raiders, Terran Dominion and Infested Kerrigan's Zerg Swarm cooperated in an attack against Korhal. The United Earth Directorate only had a small number of Zerg forces on the planet to assist them. The coalition defeated the UED, driving them from the planet. The Terran Dominion was created after the fall of the Confederacy at the height of the war between the Terrans, the Zerg and the Protoss. ...

The United Earth Directorate or UED is a fictional government in the StarCraft universe which is descended from the former controlling government, the United Powers League (UPL). ... A Zerg Hydralisk The Zerg are a vaguely insectoid race in the fictional StarCraft universe. ...


This was when Kerrigan turned on her former allies - while they were resting from their attack on the UED. Her forces fell upon the Protoss contingent of Raynor's Raiders, defeating them and killing Fenix. The Raiders lost most if not all of their Protoss support. (Kerrigan also attacked and killed Mengsk's ally General Edmund Duke). An armorless Protoss The Protoss are a race in Blizzard Entertainments real-time strategy computer game, StarCraft. ... Fenix is a fictional character in the StarCraft universe. ... General Edmund Duke was the Terran Confederate officer in charge of Alpha Squadron, a military force in the fictional StarCraft universe. ...


Because of Kerrigan's wretched betrayal, Raynor swore revenge for the murder of his friend, Fenix, and left the region without leaving any clues as to his whereabouts.


Aftermath

Raynor's Raiders did make a reappearance in Resurrection IV. The Raiders worked with the Protoss, Artanis and Taldarin, to right a terrible wrong on Braxis. Artanis is a young Protoss Praetor in the fictional StarCraft universe. ... Taldarin is a Protoss fictional character from them StarCraft video game. ... Braxis is a small cold moon in the StarCraft universe. ...


During the evolution of the war the renegade Raynor's Raiders would continue to refine their skills, moving from a small group employing conventional military tactics to a more subversive, special-operations commando unit.
