United Earth Directorate Covert Operative (UED Ghost)

“You called down the thunder, now reap the whirlwind.”
- Terran ghost

Ghosts are feared terran covert operatives. They are known for their skill, psionic powers and ability to cloak.

Ghosts were chosen from psychically-gifted individuals who were quarantined by the United Powers League and trained from infancy to channel their psionic energies to augment their natural physical strength and endurance. Conscripts who successfully completed the UED Ghost Program’s rigorous training and augmentations then served as commandos and assassins.
Ghosts are trained in target shooting, close-quarters combat (martial arts and possibly other techniques) and vehicular expertise. Ghosts are also trained to move quickly and are desensitized to combat; an example would be Sarah Kerrigan’s training, who had a gun placed to her head by a guard and was ordered to kill the guard before he killed her. Kerrigan was subjected to this training at age twelve.

Ghosts were frequently tasked with locating targets and provide targeting for tactical nuclear strikes. Their reconnaissance role was aided by cybernetic enhancements to their eyes.

Ghosts have short life expectancies.

The United Earth Directorate had its own Ghost Program, even though its predecessor the United Powers League tried to wipe out mutants, including psychics. These ghosts played a key role in the assault on the Dylarian Shipyards. Alexei Stukov commanded the loyalty of a number of ghosts.
Directorate psychics were used to control the second Overmind.

The UED seems to have used psychic scientists who had not received ghost training in their efforts to control the zerg.
