Adjutants are a form of artificial intelligence utilized by the terrans. Adjutants appear as announcer on Warhead Junction and Braxis Holdout. Another one provided the voiceovers for SCVs at the start of matches during the Xel'Naga Artifact Hunt, as they try to retrieve Xel'Naga Artifacts. Adjutant also can be unlocked as an custom announcer in Heroes of the Storm.
Adjutants are sometimes simply addressed as "computer", though they're physically humanoid in design. Much of their programming is based off of of the ATLAS AI that guided the terrans to the sector hundreds of years prior. Terran commanders understand the value that adjutants bring, as their ever-present gaze over the field of battle offers a strategic edge, and helps commanders keep their troops in line. Their functions include navigation, administration, decryption, presenting history, acting as advisers for terran commanders, storing recipes and storing data. When playing an audio feed, their eyes change color in accordance with speaker.
