Oh dear, I'm so sorry Fenix! <3 *huggles him*

Yeah, I was browsing Wikipedia, and for whatever reason possible I felt like looking up Starcraft and refreshing my memory of the plot and characters and all. And I was reading up on Praetor Fenix (one of my favourite characters (actually, my first official fav SC character), and I was fully punched in the face when remembering the "Fall of Fenix" cutscene. *sniffles* Annyyywaayyy, this scene just popped into my head suddenly, and demanded to be drawn.

I'm sorry Fenix. I love you man, I just had to make fun of that scene though. Fenix swearing under his... mind-breathe amuses me to no end. >w< This is by no means to be taken seriously.

For those of you not familiar with Starcraft at all, or with Fenix, I'll give you a rundown. Early on in the Protoss campaign, you (the Executor) go on a mission to slay some Zerg forces. However, whist doing so, Fenix, the Protoss Praetor, is ambushed by the Zerg whist patrolling a defense post outside of the Protoss city Antioch. All this takes place in a cutscene, and "conveniently", Fenix's Psi/Warp blades "malfunction" leaving him to the mercy of the Zerg, who thus proceed to "kill" him (although he is reborn into a Dragoon later on).

So yeah. This is Fenix's psi blade conking out on him, and him swearing. Because face it, Fenix swearing? Dude, Raynor better lay off him - he's a bad influence. XD I mean, seriously, you can SO hear him saying that. And I can't help but laugh in the cutscene - he's expression is so, "this is NOT my day".

I will admit that scene whenever I see it makes me laugh even though I think Fenix is the coolest protoss ever XD

Exactly my thoughts whenever I see that. Four gold stars for the awesomeness.

Tassadar: Awww, fuck, maybe this was a bad idea...

You can so see it on his face.

well, dA ate my comment earlier, so I'll have to resubmit:
This always was one of the saddest cinematics, but always the best to make fun of. I've never seen it done this way, though. And now that you mention it, I can totally see Fenix saying that.
Great drawing, too, the expression is perfect!

I know, the protoss cutscenes always make me cry. T__T I was sobbing my head off at the end of episode III (the one with Tassadar, you know? Tassadar has always been one of my favourite characters, and... *sniffs*).

But yeah, I always found it funny that the Protoss, one of THE most technologically advanced races in our galaxy (excluding the Xel'Naga, but if I remember correctly they came from a different galaxy, right?) - but SOMEHOW Fenix's blade just HAPPENS to malfunction on him at THE most inopportune moment. Think about it - Fenix, the Steward of Aiur and Praetor of the forces... and his psi blades just... vanish. Its all very convenient and rigged.

I mean, seriously. That's like, the worst time for it to happen. Like when you're playing shooter games, and your character just decides to reload RIGHT IN THE MIDDLE OF A MAJOR SHOOT OUT.

You know the saddest cutscene? When Kerrigen finally kills Fenix. That... omg, I'm am SO going to be rooting for Raynor in SC2.

I love your sig by the way. Yes, lets all blame Tassadar!
