As one of the greatest heroes in protoss history, Fenix's deeds on the battlefield are legendary. After falling to the zerg during the invasion of Aiur, his body was recovered and implanted into a dragoon so he could continue to fight. Not even death can stop Fenix from achieving glory and valor.
Fenix was a protoss zealot, and praetor of the Protoss Defense Forces. He personally led his fellow warriors into battle against those who called themselves the enemies of the Protoss Empire. Revered by his warrior-brethren, he was dubbed the Steward of the Templar, and is one of the most celebrated heroes in protoss history, legendary for his deeds on the battlefield.
Fenix was Team 1's first choice for a StarCraft warrior rather than Artanis. It was ultimately decided that, to represent his lore, a talent or trait had to show his transformation from a Zealot into a Dragoon. However, with a berth of characters with resurrection traits already existing in the game (namely Leoric), Fenix has been put on the backburner. At GamesCom 2015, Dustin Browder stated that "give us about 6 months and we may talk about Fenix then" (equating to February, 2016).
Fenix was revealed to be playable in March 15, 2018, as part of the leadup to StarCraft's 20th Anniversary.
