Waking the Ancient – StarCraft II: Heart of the Swarm
Kerrigan: I sense something. An ancient consciousness … sleeping.
Zeratul: The Ancient One. A primal zerg who witnessed the creation of the Overmind.
Kerrigan: You want me to awaken it, don’t you?
Zeratul: If you truly seek the power of Zerus, you will need the Ancient One.
Izsha: My queen, enemy primals are massing nearby. They are going to attack us.
Zeratul: They wish to stop you from speaking with the Ancient One. What will you do?
Kerrigan: What my enemies fear most. Always.
Zeratul: YOu are on the path, and no longer need my guidance. You will not see me again, Kerrigan.
Kerrigan: So this is the Ancient One.
Izsha: To awaken this creature, we must feed it.
Kerrigan: There’s a lot of biomass here. We’ll kill these quillgor and have drones harvest meat from their corpses. Once the drone is done harvesting, it will drag the biomass to the ancient.
Brakk: Brakk speaks now! You intrude on my territory, corrupt zerg! We will devour your flesh!
Izsha: Warning. A force of primal zerg fliers is preparing to assault the hive cluster.
Abathur: Mutalisks reconstituted. Ready for your armies. Will destroy primal guardians.
Izsha: Primal zerg forces are massing nearby. They are likely to attack again.
Kerrigan: Let them try.
Kerrigan: This pack of quillgor is our first target. Let’s move out.
Izsha: Quillgor located. We must move quickly if we are to secure their biomass.
Izsha: A drone can harvest biomass from this quillgor. The process is slow, and our drone will be vulnerable. We must protect it while it harvests.
Kerrigan: We need to harvest this biomass quickly!
Brakk: She must not wake the ancient! Destroy the meat! Leave her nothing!
Kerrigan: We have to stop them. Our forces can intercept their raiding parties.
Izsha: Primal zerg forces incoming. Our drone must be protected. Primal forces are attacking quillgor biomass.
Brakk: Your arrogance is unacceptable! Zerus will consume you!
Kerrigan: I’m sensing something primal nearby, but it’s small.
Abathur: Primal essence pool. Strong sequences. Approach, absorb essence. Will augment strength.
Kerrigan: I feel stronger. This must be the power Zeratul spoke of.
Izsha: Brakk’s forces have destroyed quillgor biomass.
Brakk: Your Swarm is mindless. The primal zerg descend upon you!
Izsha: It is dangerous to harvest from multiple corpses. The primal zerg are sure to attack our drones.
Brakk: You grow greedy! It shall be your downfall!
Abathur: Primal organism detected. Function similar to hive, spawns primals. Annihilation recommended.
Izsha: A drone is under attack by Brakk’s forces.
Izsha: Primal forces are attacking quillgor biomass.
Izsha: We should morph units that can attack flying units. Morphing hydralisks or queens will allow us to destroy the enemy’s fliers.
Brakk: This ends now, corrupt zerg! I will kill you myself!
Kerrigan: Defend the hive cluster!
Brakk: Your empty minions are no match for the might of the primal zerg.
Ancient One: I return.
Kerrigan: Ancient One! I am here for the power of Zerus. I will sacrifice anything to achieve my goal. You will help me.
Ancient One: Your Swarm bears the mark of Amon, the fallen xel’naga, who came to Zerus long ago. He forged the zerg into a weapon, and took them away. Yet some of us were hidden, overlooked. We multiplied. We remain pure. If you seek our power, you must become primal zerg. You must become pure.
