Tassadar was the 356 Year old High Templar
, holding the rank of executor in the ranks of the Protoss
defense forces. In the Protoss campaign in StarCraft
, he plans an attack on the Overmind
using the Dark Templar Zeratul
to weaken the Overmind's outer defences; then in the closing of the campaign he channels the psionic energies he learned to use from the dark templar into his carrier Gantrithor. The resulting blast takes his life and the Overmind's with it. These actions are revered by many protoss in the honorary expression ''En Taro Tassadar'' which means In honor of Tassadar .
