Biography

Early life

Sarah Kerrigan was born "psychically gifted", meaning she has the ability to use telepathy and telekinesis. Terrans who are born psychically gifted are taken by the Terran Confederacy at an early age to begin Terran Ghost training.

Young Sarah Kerrigan had scored highly on all phases of the psi-evaluations even though she was only eight years old.[2] She had displayed her power once, however, on TarKossis,[2] an incident which killed her mother and damaged her father's brain. Since then, she was taken by agents of the Terran Confederacy to a training facility. Her most hated trainer was Lieutenant Rumm. He tried to break down her sense of right and wrong and to make her demonstrate her psionic power, as his superiors wanted incontrovertible proof that she was psychic. However, she refused, as she didn't want to relive what happened to her parents. Flag of the Terran Confederacy. ... Mr. ...


In order to cajole her into using the power, Rumm had a kitten injected with a chemical that would cause a tumor. Then he ordered Sarah to use her power to destroy the tumor (or at least put the kitten down). She refused, and Rumm put his pistol against the kitten's head and ordered her to do so again. Sarah still refused and Rumm didn't fire. He later discovered that Sarah had used her power on his pistol, destroying the firing mechanism. Even so, there were other explanations for the pistol's malfunction, so his superiors did not treat this as incontrovertible proof of Sarah's psionic powers. Thereafter, the tumor killed the kitten slowly and painfully.


A technician recommended the use of a neuro-adjuster, a device which would weaken a Ghost's psionic powers and ensure their loyalty to the Terran Confederacy, but Rumm refused.

Sarah was taken to another room and strapped to a chair with a needle against her skin. In another room, she could see her brain-damaged father, similarly strapped to a chair. Rumm's scientists were about to inject her father with the same substance that caused the growth of a tumor in the kitten unless Sarah cooperated with the Confederacy. Instead, Sarah said she would kill herself and her father rather than use the power for the Confederacy. She was injected with the needle and quickly lost consciousness. Rumm felt he had no choice now but to employ the neuro-adjuster.

Kerrigan later became part of the experiment at Vyctor 5's Fujita Complex involving Zerg. It was found that Zerg naturally responded to her telepathic commands. This training may have led to the production of the psi-emitter.

The Sons of Korhal

Kerrigan's first appearance in the game comes during the revolt of Antiga Prime. Kerrigan - now a 26-year-old Lieutenant with the Sons of Korhal - was dispatched to Antiga Prime to scout out the terrain and make contact with Sons of Korhal operative Jim Raynor and the rebel leaders. She assassinated the Confederate officers in charge of the Antigan base, placing it under the control of the Sons of Korhal. Later, Kerrigan and her men were sent to place a psi-emitter in a Confederate base on the planet, luring huge amounts of Zerg to break Confederate lines in order to escape undetected.

New Gettysburg

Late in the Terran campaign in the original Starcraft, after the Zerg were lured to the Confederate capital Tarsonis through the use of the psi-emitter, Kerrigan is ordered to protect the Zerg hives from the Protoss. This action would prevent the Confederates from escaping. Jim Raynor had pleaded with her not to go to the surface, but she insisted that she had to, and Raynor wished her luck. Upon completing her mission the Terran position was overwhelmed with Zerg, and Kerrigan issued a desperate plea for evacuation. Even though Jim Raynor searched for her via dropship right before the Sons of Korhal fleet disengaged, she had already been taken by the Zerg at that time. Arcturus Mengsk, on the other hand, ordered the entire Korhal fleet to disengage from the Tarsonis system, and (to Raynor's horror) left Kerrigan and her men to die on Tarsonis.

However, this caused a rift in Mengsk's forces, as Raynor and many men loyal to him defected. They had to battle their way out of the center of the Sons of Korhal fleet before running away in a dozen small frigates. After a few days, they raided the Dylarian Shipyards, and Raynor commandeered the Behemoth-class battlecruiser Hyperion. After some time, they renamed themselves Raynor's Raiders.

Voiced by Glynnis Talken Campbell

While on Tarsonis, the Zerg Overmind sensed Kerrigan's power, and ordered the swarms to capture her. Over the course of the first few Zerg missions Kerrigan is contained within a chrysalis and taken to Char, where she uses her telepathic power to reach out and contact Jim Raynor and Arcturus Mengsk. In each case the Terrans sent out a force to recover Kerrigan, and in each case they failed. Sarah Kerrigan is reborn into the Zerg Swarms, and adopts the name "Queen of Blades". With the assistance of the Cerebrate that protected her in the Chrysalis (the player), she wipes out the forces of Edmund Duke, but as a last act of the friendship they shared, spares the lives of Jim Raynor and a small number of his men.

In-game, she is represented by a unique unit with similarities to an Infested Terran. However, instead of exploding, she is equipped with claws sprouting off her back, giving her powerful melee attacks. She can launch a high templar's psionic storm attack, can cloak herself, and can consume other Zerg to use their biological energy to fill her energy bar to power her other abilities. An Infested Terran is a breed of Zerg. ...


She was infested by the Zerg evolutionary virus, and as a result of her shocking transformation, has telomeric additions to her DNA, suggesting she is potentially immortal - she will never die of old age. This is revealed in one of the loading screens of StarCraft: Brood War. Infested Kerrigan also has "polytoxic symbionts" in her musculoskeletal, limbic, and cardiovascular systems.

The Overmind said of her: "The greatness of her spirit has been left to her; that the Swarms might benefit from her fierce example. Fear not her designs, for she is bound to me as intimately as any Cerebrate."


Kerrigan quickly developed her psionic abilities after discovering the secrets of Ghost conditioning on a Terran Science Vessel, the Amerigo. She develops numerous abilities, including the psionic storm, probably an evolution of her previous abilities. From here, she begins a campaign of terror against the Protoss, namely Tassadar and Zeratul. A High Templar is a powerful Protoss psychic in the fictional StarCraft universe. ... Tassadar is a fictional character in the StarCraft universe. ... Zeratul is a fictional character in the StarCraft universe. ...


Kerrigan's abilities seemed to have made her overconfident. She was able to sense the presence of the Protoss Tassadar on Char, and ignored Zasz's warning that something was strange about this Templar. She challenged him to a duel, defeating his forces in order to get to him. It turned out to be a distraction of a "weapons test" - Tassadar's ally Zeratul believed that his Dark Templar energies would enable him to permanently slay a Zerg Cerebrate such as Zasz, and he was correct.

Kerrigan was later ordered to take revenge on the Dark Templar. She destroyed their base and drove Tassadar and Zeratul into hiding. As she searched for them, the Overmind took the majority of its forces to Aiur as part of its campaign to assimilate the Protoss. Kerrigan unexpectedly decided to remain on Char and keep hunting down the Dark Templar rather than assist in the conquest of Aiur. She later captured Zeratul and a number of Dark Templar in a Terran installation, which she had stolen from Alpha Squadron. However, Tassadar eventually emerged from hiding, striking an alliance with the Terrans trapped in the installation and rescuing the Dark Templar.

The final battle on Aiur ended when the Overmind was destroyed by Tassadar which left the Zerg Swarms extremely vulnerable. During this time, many Zerg Cerebrates desperately tried to create a new Overmind for the Swarms. However, Kerrigan began a campaign aimed at eliminating these Cerebrates in order to rule over the Swarms by herself. Illustration of Aiur, homeworld of the mighty Protoss. ...

As part of her plan, Kerrigan traveled to Shakuras, the secret homeworld of the Dark Templar and took control of their Matriarch, Raszagal. The Dark Templar did not suspect that there was anything different about their leader and they didn't find Kerrigan, who was in hiding.

Shortly afterwards Zeratul, Artanis and the Protoss survivors of Aiur travelled through the Warp Gate which connected Aiur to Shakuras. They were closely followed by Zerg which included two Cerebrates allied with Daggoth's new Overmind. These Cerebrates nestled around the Xel'Naga Temple, a powerful artifact capable of wiping the Zerg off of Shakuras. Zeratul is a fictional character in the StarCraft universe. ...

Raszagal informed the newly-arrived Protoss of the Temple's powers which required the use of the two lost crystals: the Uraj and Khalis, but she ordered the Protoss to first slay the two Cerebrates around the Temple, which was done. Kerrigan made an appearance right after this event, asking to speak to the Matriarch. She claimed that with the Overmind dead, she was no longer being controlled. However, a new Overmind was growing on Char and when it reached maturity it would take control of her. The Protoss didn't trust her, but Raszagal (under her influence) welcomed her. Aldaris, a Judicator and former member of the Protoss Conclave didn't trust her at all, but because he had been at war with the other major Protoss players they didn't take his attitude very seriously.

Upon their return to Shakuras, Aldaris was in the midsts of launching a rebellion against Raszagal. He had discovered Kerrigan's influence on her, but he did not inform Artanis and Zeratul of this as he was killed by Kerrigan before he could tell them. Zeratul allowed her to leave because of the help she had delivered to the Protoss, but he warned her never to return. Kerrigan bragged that she had forced the Protoss to slay her enemies, the two Cerebrates on Shakuras, before fleeing the planet.

Against the New Overmind

"I don't think so, Admiral. You see, at this point... I'm pretty much the Queen Bitch of the Universe, and not all of your little soldiers or space ships will stand in my way again. " - Kerrigan to Admiral DuGalle Admiral Gerard DuGalle of the UED Admiral Gerard DuGalle is a character in the StarCraft universe. ...


During StarCraft Episode V the United Earth Directorate acquired the Psi Disruptor, a powerful anti-Zerg weapon. But the leader of the UED force, Admiral DuGalle, squandered its use due to the influence and advice of Samir Duran. Vice Admiral Stukov disassembled the device and hid it from DuGalle, which would spark charges of treason.

Samir Duran —better known as Duran or Lieutenant Duran— is a character in the StarCraft universe. ... Alexei Stukov (also known as Alexi Stukov) is a fictional character in the StarCraft universe. ...


Exploiting the fear of the United Earth Directorate, Kerrigan put together a coalition with Fenix and Jim Raynor. She had previously been involved in a relationship with Jim Raynor, the exact nature of which is unknown, when both were members of the Sons of Korhal. This made it easy for her to manipulate them. Fenix didn't trust her at all, but Raynor's fear of the UED was strong enough for him to persuade Fenix to fight alongside him and Kerrigan. Logo of the United Earth Directorate. ... Fenix is a fictional character in the StarCraft universe. ... James Jim Raynor is a fictional character in the StarCraft universe. ... James Jim Raynor is a fictional character in the StarCraft universe. ... Fenix is a fictional character in the StarCraft universe. ...


The UED conquered Korhal IV, center of the Terran Dominion and chased its former emperor, Arcturus Mengsk, to Aiur. Mengsk had been rescued by Jim Raynor and Fenix. On Aiur, Kerrigan's Zerg, with help from Samir Duran (an Infested Terran working for Kerrigan) again rescued Mengsk and Raynor from the UED. Meanwhile, Duran betrayed the UED again. In the end, the Psi Disruptor was activated, Admiral DuGalle had Duran kill Vice Admiral Stukov, and Duran's betrayals were discovered. However, the Psi Disruptor had been reassembled on Braxis, forcing the UED to defend another critical planet besides Korhal. Activating the Disruptor had severe consequences for Kerrigan's control of her Zerg, but leaving it on Braxis with only a planetary garrison to defend it would sound the death knell of the UED's efforts in the Koprulu Sector. Korhal IV was an important Terran Confederacy core world, considered the jewel of the Confederacy. ...

Finally, the UED descended on Char, home of the new Overmind and captured it. Then Kerrigan revealed herself and the newly infested Duran. Telling DuGalle that she will destroy everything the UED tried to control, she left the battlefield. Char is a planet in the StarCraft universe. ...


Taking control of a Cerebrate (possibly her few-weeks-older sibling who had watched over her incubation) to serve her, (again, the player) Kerrigan began actively fighting beside Arcturus Mengsk, Fenix and Raynor to defeat the UED. Mengsk was her prisoner, and she told him he could remain Emperor of his own eight-by-eight cell if he didn't agree to her proposal. The allies destroyed the poorly-defended Psi Disruptor for her and even stood aside as she infested the populace of Moria. She led the attack on the UED forces on Korhal, defeating them. She quickly turned against her allies when they were in a weak position, resting from the battle, killing Fenix and Mengsk's general, Edmund Duke. Raynor and Mengsk were left very bitter about this betrayal, especially Raynor, who swore he would see her dead for this. Arcturus Mengsk is a character in the StarCraft universe. ... An Infested Terran is a breed of Zerg. ... In the fictional StarCraft universe, Moria is a mineral-rich world located in the Koprulu Sector. ...

General Edmund Duke was the Terran Confederate officer in charge of Alpha Squadron, a military force in the fictional StarCraft universe. ...


Kerrigan managed to repel UED revenge assaults as she schemed for the destruction of the new Overmind. She travelled to Shakuras and retrieved the Matriarch, Raszagal. The Dark Templar had not activated the Xel'Naga Temple, perhaps because Raszagal had ordered them not to. Kerrigan wanted Raszagal to look like she was an unwilling prisoner, so she couldn't just order Raszagal to come with her. A Dark Templar is a member of a group of Protoss in the StarCraft universe. ... The XelNaga are a race in the StarCraft universe which have vanished (or gone to sleep) countless ages ago. ...


Kerrigan brought Raszagal to Char, followed by a vengeful Zeratul and Artanis. Zeratul demanded that Kerrigan turn over Raszagal. Kerrigan proposed a deal - she would "allow" Raszagal to return if Zeratul agreed to slay the Overmind. Raszagal convinced him to go, saying the Overmind was a threat to both Kerrigan and the Protoss. Char is a planet in the StarCraft universe. ... Zeratul is a fictional character in the StarCraft universe. ... Artanis is a young Protoss Praetor in the StarCraft universe. ...


Zeratul had no choice, though he knew killing the Overmind would only make the treacherous Kerrigan stronger. He consented. His Dark Templar participated in the battle, destroying renegade Zerg and UED troops alike. Then he again demanded the return of the Matriarch. Kerrigan agreed ... but Raszagal did not. Under Kerrigan's control, Raszagal said she wanted to stay. Here Zeratul finally learned of Kerrigan's influence over the Matriarch, spirited her away and fled. A Dark Templar is a member of a group of Protoss in the StarCraft universe. ...


Kerrigan ordered her minion, Samir Duran, to assist in capturing the Matriarch. They were almost successful, but Zeratul slew Raszagal rather than allow her to live as a slave to Kerrigan. The surprised Kerrigan let Zeratul escape to live with his guilt. Meanwhile, Samir Duran disappeared. Samir Duran —better known as Duran or Lieutenant Duran— is a character in the StarCraft universe. ...


Ascension

"Once again I stand atop the broken bodies of my enemies... Victorious but not unscarred. The Earth-borne Directorate has been destroyed, and the Overmind lies dead and trampled beneath the ashes of Char. As for my unlikely allies, I think that I shall allow them a reprieve, for in time I will seek to test their resolve, and their strengths. They will all be mine in the end, for I am the Queen of Blades. None shall ever dispute my rule again." - Kerrigan on Char Look up char in Wiktionary, the free dictionary. ...

Current status

Sarah Kerrigan became the ruler of the most powerful force in the known universe. The Protoss fleet has been effectively decimated, the main force of the Dominion destroyed, and the UED fleet also annihalated, the Zerg currently are the dominant power.


After killing Duke and Fenix on Korhal, she remarks that "For the first time since my transfiguration I am wearied of the slaughter". She also retreats to Tarsonis "to rest" instead of pursuing the UED's fleet to Char (while she eventually assaults Char, it is only in retaliation to the UED attacking Tarsonis).


By the end of Brood War, Kerrigan is building up her forces on Char but has yet to attack the Terran Dominion or the Protoss of Shakuras.[3] Instead, she waits for an unexpected and dangerous enemy. Char is a planet in the StarCraft universe. ... The Terran Dominion was created after the fall of the Confederacy at the height of the war between the Terrans, the Zerg and the Protoss. ...

She can also launch Psionic Storms and control the minds of others, abilities only the Protoss' Templar and Dark Archons possess and can only be performed through great training and willpower. Kerrigan was only shown, however, to be capable of controlling Raszagal, an elderly Protoss, and as she does not use this power on anyone else, it is possible she can only do this to someone who is mentally inhibited.


Kerrigan's latest projects include devising more intelligent Infested Terrans, although without much success.[2] An Infested Terran is a breed of Zerg. ...

Her Ghost form has much more HP than a normal Ghost, and three times the attack power. She comes fully upgraded with Cloak and Lockdown capabilities, but cannot call down a Nuclear strike. Unlike other heroes who are shown to be of identical design to their normal counterparts, Kerrigan's model and wireframe depict her with long, red hair.


As an Infested Terran, Kerrigan retains her Cloaking ability, and gains the Consume and Ensnare powers, normally used by the Zerg Defiler and Queen, respectively. She does 50 damage per attack, allowing her to kill conventional ground units in a few strikes: however, she cannot attack air units. After a mission to remove her Ghost conditioning, Kerrigan gains the Psionic Storm ability. This wide array of physical power and variety of abilities makes Kerrigan one of the most useful units in the game. As an Infested Terran, Kerrigan has an entirely unique unit design that depicts her with claws coming from her back. Her avatar depicts her with segmented spines for hair.
