The Crucible (Leviathan Scenes) – StarCraft II: Heart of the Swarm
Planet Zerus – Leviathan Scenes
Zurvan: You have questions.
Kerrigan: The primal zerg say the Swarm is corrupted. What did the fallen xel’naga, Amon, do to us?
Zurvan: He desired our strength, the ability to steal essence. But we were independent… We would not follow. And so he bound the zerg to a single overriding will. They lost their identity, and became his slaves.
Kerrigan: The hive mind. That’s Amon’s corruption?
Zurvan: It is, and a terrible fate for a strong primal zerg.
Izsha: My queen, why did we wake the Ancient One? Its power outstrips even yours.
Kerrigan: The Ancient One is the key to unlocking the power of Zerus, and I need that knowledge.
Izsha: Will it not destroy us?
Kerrigan: It’s called a gamble. It’s something terrans do, when their instincts tell them the time is right.
Izsha: I see. Just as when the terran James Raynor came to Char to return you to your original form?
Kerrigan: Yes, just like that. The thing about gambles, Izsha, is that sometimes you lose.
Abathur: Primal zerg. Unacceptable. Must be wiped clean. No trace left. Destroy primal zerg.
Kerrigan: What are you talking about?
Abathur: Saw ranged primal zerg creatures on battlefield? Based on hydralisk! Primal zerg stole design from Swarm! Swarm on planet for hours, days, already being replicated!
Kerrigan: Abathur, are you upset?
Abathur: Unacceptable! Swarm’s power, ability to assimilate strengths. Primal zerg must not take from us!
Kerrigan: Don’t worry about it. They’ll be on our side before I am done here.
