Feral zerg



Date Established


Date Dissolved





The Aiur Brood was one of the few zerg broods which remained on Aiur after the Brood War. It defended the Overmind following its death.


The zerg occupied Aiur during the Great War[1] and engaged in fratricidal fighting in the strife that followed the death of the Overmind[2]. After the Brood War the infighting came to an end but the zerg on Aiur were left mostly listless and did not spawn in significant numbers.[3]

In 2504, Zeratul returned to the planet to access the dead Overmind's memories. He was forced to fight the brood guarding (and feeding off) the corpse.[4]

At the start of the End War, some, if not all of the feral zerg on Aiur came under Amon's control, forming his own brood.[5] Following Amon's banishment to the void and the subsequent reclamation of Aiur by the protoss, the remaining zerg on Aiur were apparently eradicated.[6]


Despite having been cut off from the main Swarm, the Aiur Brood had access to many post-Brood War strains, such as the roach and the baneling.

The brood's decal is available in multiplayer as a reward for winning 750 1v1 games as zerg.[7]
