 During StarCraft
During StarCraft, General Duke serves at the Confederacy's main general in the military. He's quite stubborn in his actions, calling out Jim Raynor on destroying the Confederacy base when it was infested by the zerg. He first reveals himself in a transmission telling you of your evacuation of your colony. He later again comes to you, telling you to just "sight tight" as the Confederacy plans on destroying the zerg. However, you destroy the zerg base before they get to you and you are arrested. Duke was busy fighting off the zerg invasion while Jim Raynor escaped from the prison cell and went to Arcturus Mengsk and Sons of Korhal. Later, Duke ordered an attack on the protoss that had attacked Charu Sara and the protoss withdrew after the rush of Terran forces. Duke was sent to walk over Chau Sara after the protoss attacked, and during this time, the Magistrate critizised his efforts. Duke retorted by calling him a"damn fringe world yokel".
