Sarah Kerrigan

Sarah Kerrigan


Character Analysis

(Avoiding Spoilers)

Grew up... a Confederate Ghost. When Sarah Kerrigan’s latent psychic powers first emerged as a child, she accidently killed her mother and mentally scarred her father. She was soon taken away by the Terran Confederacy for their psychic Ghost operative training program.

Living... with the Zerg. While working with the Terran rebel group the Sons of Korhal, Kerrigan was betrayed and abandoned by their leader Arcturus Mengsk. She was then overwhelmed and captured by the alien Zerg swarm.

Profession... Queen of Blades. Instead of killing Kerrigan, the Zerg Overmind infested her with Zerg DNA, thereby amplifying her already considerable mental and physical powers. When the Overmind was later destroyed, Kerrigan took control of the swarm. As she says, “I am the swarm!”

Interests… evolving the swarm. Kerrigan is unique among infested Terrans in that she retained her mental faculties after her transformation. So along with her main duties of running the swarm, she conducts numerous side experiments, with unwilling volunteers, trying to create others like herself.

Relationship Status... in a doomed relationship. As a Terran, Kerrigan was in love with fellow Sons of Korhal member Jim Raynor. But even though neither one has fully let go of their feelings for the other, as the Queen of Blades, Kerrigan’s chances for a life with Jim are a lot less likely.

Challenge... killing Emperor Mengsk. Mengsk’s rebellion eventually succeeded, but as the new emperor he became even more corrupt than his predecessor. Driven by revenge, Kerrigan is determined to take him down.

Personality... vicious. Even before becoming the monster matriarch that is the Queen of Blades, Kerrigan was hardened by her brutal Ghost training. So she will violently confront anything in her path until, as she says, “I’m pretty much the Queen Bitch of the Universe.”
