Encyclopedia > Shakuras

Shakuras is the homeworld planet of the Protoss Dark Templars in the StarCraft Universe, a fictional universe in which a series of computer games and books are set. In contrast with Aiur (homeworld of the Protoss), Shakuras is a planet devoid of vegetation. It is also the homeworld of the Kakaru, a flying reptilian creature similar to the pterosaurs. The planet is dark due to the curious "darkening" of the sun, probably due to engineering by the Xel'Naga. It is home to a Warp Gate and a Xel'Naga Temple.


When Khas created the Khala and enlightened the Protoss tribes, he united all but a few dissented Protoss tribes who refused to submit to the Khala. Adun, a young warrior, was sent to destroy them, but instead he tried to teach them psionics instead until they couldn't help but reveal themselves. Because of this, these "Dark" Protoss were exhiled from Auir and sent to space. These tribes eventually settled on Shakuras, expanded, and began life anew, but were forcibly reunited with their "light" counterparts when the decision was made to evacuate the remaining Protoss tribes on Aiur to a safer location.


The Dark Templar were led by the Matriarch Raszagal, who does the best she can to guide and protect her people. After Raszagal's untimely death, Zeratul assumed control of the tribes.

Artanis at AllExperts (1295 words)
The Zerg continued to spread over Shakuras, but Jim Raynor and Fenix, who were defending the Aiur side of the Gate, were able to take control of it for a short time and send a transmission through.
During the second confrontation between Protoss and Zerg forces on the much hallowed Xel'Naga Temple grounds of Shakuras, which lay atop a nexus of cosmic energy, Artanis was instrumental in breaking the Zerg blockade and activating the ancient weapon.
Artanis led the assault on Kerrigan's base of operations on Char for the Protoss; in a desperate alliance the Protoss, Terran Dominion, and United Earth Directorate combined their resources and assaulted the world, attempting to secure the Omega platform to use as a staging point for the defeat of the Zerg on Char.
