Cutscene

Izsha: We captured a prisoner in the wastes and subdued her, my queen. She says she is a researcher.

Kerrigan: I didn’t order you to take prisoners.

Izsha: Abathur requested it. He wants to dissect her.

Kerrigan: What’s the point? He won’t be able to use protoss genetic material.

Izsha: He likes to try.

Kerrigan: Actually, keep her alive for now. I might find a use for her.

Bridge

Izsha: My queen, your chamber is now available. Within, you can alter your abilities.

 


Evolution Pit – Conversation

Kerrigan: What is that sound?

Abathur: Failed experiments. Reverting to biomass. Slow process.

Kerrigan: At least put them out of their misery first.

Abathur: Wasted effort. Creatures will die soon. Pain irrelevant.

Kerrigan: When you say things like that, Abathur … I almost remember you and I feel … anger.

Abathur: Anger product of adrenaline, stress-response, imminent threat. No threat to you. No anger.

Kerrigan: I’ll be the judge of that.

Kerrigan Chamber – Conversation

Izsha: This is your personal chamber. From here you can focus your neural pathways, and alter your active abilities. As you grow in power, newer and stronger abilities will awaken. You can alter your active abilities here, whenever you wish.

Lasarra

Kerrigan: What are your people doing here?

Lasarra: We study this moon to see if its rotation can be altered, its climate improved. Do you understand? We are only colonists, and you are killing us.

Kerrigan: Yes. And if I let you live, you’ll call your Golden Armada, and they will kill me.

Lasarra: Kill thousands to save yourself? Is that how you justify this?

Kerrigan: I justify nothing. There is no moral high ground here. Your people have killed billions of zerg. We are all covered in blood. There may be more on my hands than yours, but in the end we are both killers.

Izsha – Conversation

Izsha: The hunt goes well, my queen?

Kerrigan: It’s bloody.

Izsha: Those protoss would kill you if they could. They are not zerg, that means they are the enemy.

Kerrigan: Is it that simple?

Izsha: For zerg, it is. Whatever my queen has lost, think what she has gained: Purity of essence. You are the will of the Swarm.

Hatchery – Conversation

Kerrigan: Nafash’s brood lives again within the Swarm.

Izsha: When the protoss struck, she fell back to prepared positions in the ice valleys. The protoss had to hunt her down.

Kerrigan: She was intelligent, careful and tenacious. But she made one mistake. She ran away.
