Corporal Miles "Blaze" Lewis, the Veteran Firebat, is a ranged Warrior Hero from the StarCraft universe. He has always been drawn to the flame, but it wasn't until he joined up with Raynor's Raiders that he put his pyromania to good use. He's seen his fair share of battles since then, and has never failed to bring the heat.

Blaze is a dual-incinerator cannon wielding Warrior who excels at area-of-effect damage and locking down an area of the battlefield. Get ready to fire it up![1]

Background[edit | edit source]

StarCraft This section concerns content exclusive to the StarCraft universe.

Lewis's infatuation with fire began in his childhood. Later in life, he had the opportunity to join Raynor's Raiders and fight for the future of the Terran Dominion. He hesitated, but when he learned he could become a firebat, that sealed the deal. His tendency for pyromania earned him the nickname "Blaze."[2] After the fall of Arcturus Mengsk, Lewis joined the Dominion Armed Forces. He heard of the disappearance of Jim Raynor after the End War, and wondered what happened to his former commander.[3]

Firebats are "armored assault troopers," often attached to provide support for marine squads. Particularly devastating in close quarters combat, they're typically armed with dual arm-mounted flame throwers and wear heat-resistant fireproof armor similar to those used by marines, although heavier.[4]

Gameplay[edit | edit source]

Blaze is a ranged Tank who specializes in initiating fights and dealing area damage by spreading his flames.

Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • The Firebat was shown at the Heroes of the Storm Character Design Panel during BlizzCon 2015 as a possible candidate for inclusion.[5]
    • Firebats made their debut in the original StarCraft (March 1998). Blaze was added to StarCraft II's Co-op Missions mode as an heroic outlaw for Tychus Findlay in 2018.
  • Blaze's teaser video, "Need a Light?" was produced by Rocket Jump, a hybrid studio/production company led by Freddie Wong.[6]
  • Blaze is voiced by Kevin Michael Richardson.
  • Blaze's "Dominion" skin has the coloration and symbols of the Terran Dominion.
  • Blaze's "Smokin'" skin references the character of Trevor "Smokin' Joe" Jacobs from the short story Stealing Thunder. The symbol he has on his shoulders and bunker is the symbol of the Kel-Morian Combine.
    • This character and skin are likely a reference to Blizzard Entertainment artist Trevor Jacobs, as some other characters from the story share names with Blizzard employees.
  • Blaze's rank of corporal reflects the rank of firebat units in the first StarCraft.
  • Blaze is the third StarCraft warrior hero in the game, the first two being Artanis and Dehaka.
  • Blaze is the only terran warrior hero in the game.
  • The Jet Propulsion ability may be a reference to the fact that the early CMC-230 XF firebat suits during the Guild Wars were outfitted with jetpacks, but due to reliability issues the design was scrapped.
  • The Bunker Drop brings down a bunker, a terran defensive structure that allows infantry to take cover within it.
  • The three "stimpack" abilities in the level 1 tier of abilities references the stimpack ability in StarCraft and StarCraft II, a chemical cocktail that served as a potent combat stimulant at the risk of harming the soldier. Firebats could use stimpacks in the first StarCraft and in StarCraft II's Co-op Missions.
  • Incinerator Gauntlets and Juggernaut Plating talents reference two of the upgrades firebats can gain in the StarCraft II: Wings of Liberty campaign and in Co-op Missions.
  • Fortified Bunker is an upgrade for the bunker in the campaign of Wings of Liberty and as an unlockable upgrade for Jim Raynor in Co-op Missions.
