History[edit | edit source]

StarCraft This section concerns content exclusive to the StarCraft universe.

The truth about Tychus Findlay’s past is hard to come by. Stories about him are common enough, but distilling fact from fiction is another matter entirely. Some tales describe Findlay as a scoundrel who would sell his own mother to Kimeran pirates for the right sum, while others portray him as a loyal soldier who risked his life to save his fellow Marines during the Guild Wars. Even the one man who knows him best, Jim Raynor, isn’t sure if all of the stories are true. He can only attest to what he saw with his own eyes after he and Findlay became friends in the Confederate military.

As the war progressed, Findlay became a member of the 321st Colonial Rangers Battalion, an elite fighting force tasked with high-priority missions on Turaxis II. Tychus was an exceptional soldier, and his unit—nicknamed the “Heaven’s Devils”—quickly earned a reputation as a daring and effective military asset. After a successful stint in the Heaven’s Devils, however, Findlay’s military career came to an abrupt end. He went AWOL after a botched mission into Kel-Morian territory that resulted in the friendly fire deaths of Confederate soldiers. Findlay blamed the incident on his commanding officers, but he knew that he might be held accountable for the operation’s deaths. His intuition were correct: the Confederate military charged him in absentia with manslaughter.

Findlay and Raynor spent the next few years on the run as outlaws. Together they stalked the Koprulu sector, pulling off heists and amassing a small fortune. Findlay in particular became the stuff of legend due to his habit of embellishing the details of his exploits to everyone he met. He was well suited to this life of crime, and the credits he obtained allowed him to enjoy what he considered the finer things in life: booze, brothels, and the best cigars in the Koprulu sector. But the good times didn’t last. Echoing Findlay and Raynor’s earlier misfortune during the Guild Wars, the outlaws’ crime spree came to a sudden end. Authorities cornered Tychus and Jim during a risky heist, and Findlay was apprehended. Raynor, however, escaped in the ensuing chaos.

Tychus Findlay is now rumored to be locked away in New Folsom Prison. Convicts who are sent to this maximum security facility are rarely heard from again, but Findlay is a survivor. Even when all of the cards are stacked against him, he always manages to find a way out of tough situations.
