OverviewEdit

Aberration SC2 Head2

An aberration

Aberrations are former terrans who have undergone extreme mutation from the zerg hyper-evolutionary virus.[1] They possess class 5 bio-signatures.[2]

In 2504, aberrations were spawned on Meinhoff[3] and some were present in the tunnels beneath Char which housed Sarah Kerrigan's nydus network.[4]

Zagara later created some aberrations for Kerrigan (which were at this time full-fledged zerg, able to be morphed from larvae) to use in her assault on General Horace Warfield's compound on Char.[5] Aberrations also participated in a raid on the Dominion storage world Brokas Hur, where they helped steal a large quantity of jorium crystals from a crashed cargo ship.[6] Aberrations were also present on Korhal during the final siege of Augustgrad.[7]

Heart of the Swarm AbilitiesEdit

  • Burrow
  • Towering: Enables the aberration to step over smaller units.

NotesEdit

  • The aberration is also a portrait reward available in StarCraft II for the Team Zerg 250 achievement.[8]
  • Aberrations were previously known as centaurs.[9] It has 'baneling bubbles' on its back and was originally intended to be a cross between a baneling and infested colonist, exploding like the former. The final aberration has a different combat role; its explosion upon death is purely cosmetic.[1]
