StarCraft's heroes

Kerrigan,Duran,Zeratul,Raynor,Artanis,Mengsk,Duke,Fenix...all these are heroes,they're special characters of sc,more powerful than the others units.Generally,it is considered a hero to an unit when it's much more powerful and stronger than the normal units where they come from (i.e: Zeratul comes from a Dark Templar).They are approximately twice as powerful,some times the triple, than the normal units.

Even though they are very strong,they are not invincible,and in most missions the first objective is to keep alive the hero,sometimes it's better to keep him/her away from the battle,or watch it closely,because if he dies,you lose.I just keep them far of the focus of the battle,protecting a small area together with other units
Ok enough talk. Here you have a list with the heroes and some info about them:
