The organisation Psionics United is entirely made up of ghosts, and are the main attack unit for the group.

HistoryEdit

After the fall of the Confederacy, the control of the Ghost program shifted to the new Dominion. Arcturus Mengsk ordered the extermination of half the ghosts in the program, both to get rid of any potential threats from Confederacy loyal ghosts, and to get rid of weaker, and less useful ghosts. However, many of the Ghosts did have strong psionic power, and the processes used to turn them into killers lowered their psi rating.

Around half the ghosts where re-called to a base on Worthing, a moon of Tarsonis. The plan was to one by one kill off the ghosts using a lethal injection. However, something went wrong, and all the ghosts at the facility regained their memories, as well as their full psionic potential. Only one ghost, only known as John, did not fully recover his memories, being unable to remember anything before being trained as a ghost.

The ghosts managed to fight their way out, and escape to Mistaff IV. Hiding out in an abandoned research lab, the ghosts knew that a strike force was on the way to kill them, so many planned to leave. However John, realizing that unless they worked together, the Dominion could hunt them down easily, so he manged to rally most of them into a group. Activating some of the mechanical units that where being developed, the ghosts where able to hold of the strike force until seemingly dying in the explosion of a experimental reactor. However the ghosts had triggered the blast, and escaped with some of the mechanical units in a Hermes dropship.

The ghosts, under the leadership of John, formed Psionics United. The name was used as a front for a mercenary organisation, only hiring out to people from a moral standing point. The mercenary operations where used to fund searches for high psi rated people, to stop them Dominion from capturing them. These people either go into hiding on their own, or join Psionics United.

OverviewEdit

While the ghosts of the Confederacy and Dominion are normally all mentally alike, due to programming, ghosts in Psionics United have range of different personalities. Also due to being free from their programming, the ghosts all have varying psionic abilities, which only a few normal ghosts have.

Usually psionic power matches the ghost's personality, with angry and violent ghosts being able to control fire (pyrotechnics), intellignet and nervous ghosts being able to control technology (technopathy), and quiet and secretive ghosts being able to control shadows (obtenebration).
