Reaver is the Protoss heavy siege unit capable of leveling entire enemy bases on it's own.
Assaulting an enemy encampment can be a very costly affair and, rather than needlessly sacrificing lives, the Protoss have developed a robotic war machine known as the Reaver to use as mobile artillery. The Reaver is heavily armored and houses a micro-manufacturing plant to produce tiny, highly explosive drones called Scarabs. Although the Reaver carries no weapons, a well-placed wave of Scarabs can reduce both troops and buildings to rubble in moments.
The reaver evolved from a civilian mobile manufacturing unit that was militarized to become a mobile artillery piece, ensuring that fewer lives would be lost when assaulting enemy bases. Somewhat fittingly, reavers have become renowned for levelling entire colonies in moments.

The reaver was called the trilobyte in early StarCraft alpha testing.
Reavers resemble the ohmu from Nausicaä of the Valley of the Wind.
