The Voice in the Darkness is a malevolent entity in the StarCraft universe. It has existed before the birth of the xel'Naga, and ruled the Void before them. It describes itself as the "Living Heart of the Void" and "One True God." It despises the xel'naga which imprisoned it, and claims that they are false gods. Due to this, it hates all xel'Naga and their creations, the Protoss.
Before its imprisonment, it was one with the Void, as Amon later was, and could control it on a whim. After it was imprisoned, it still retained terrible psionic power, yet became vastly weaker in comparison. Able to forcefully overtake and possess other entities, it used their bodies to carry out its will. It viewed this process as a religious conversion, not a possession, and would become wrathful at those who resisted. Hateful and determined to rid the universe of heathen abominations, the Voice in the Darkness is one of the most dangerous entities the StarCraft verse has to offer.
