The Starcraft 2 team have updated the official Starcraft 2 website with a biography of the central character in the lore, Jim Raynor.
For those of you who don't know, Jim has been voted as one of the best hero's out of any game to be released and Chris Metzen has hinted that Starcraft 2 will turn him into a much more heroic figure than he previously was.
Jim Raynor was a Confederate marshal on Mar Sara at the time of the first zerg incursions on that world. Despite bravely fighting the alien aggressors and saving many lives, he was arrested by Confederacy forces on the pretext of destroying Confederate property at Backwater Station. When he was subsequently liberated by Arcturus Mengsk's Sons of Korhal, an anti-Confederate revolutionary group, Raynor chose to fight alongside them.
The page also features an impressive 3D render of the character, as well as 2 screenshots and a piece of concept.
