The following section contains information from StarCraft: Insurrection.
Atticus Carpenter was a terran ghost who went rogue.
Carpenter was conscripted into the Ghost Program and was labeled as one of Brontes IV's most promising trainees. However, his psychic dampers malfunctioned, for unknown reasons. He killed his former superiors and fled.
During the Great War Carpenter was back on Brontes IV, leading the Fist against the Brontes IV Colonial Militia. He recorded a propaganda video, calling on the people to oppose the Confederacy with the aid of visitors from the sky -- the zerg! Initially, things went well, Carpenter coming to a position where he demanded that Marshal Bill Constantine surrender. However, the Brontes IV Colonial Militia, assisted by Jack Frost and his allies, put a damper on his plans, plans further dampened by the arrival of the Hammer Strike Force. Ultimately, although Carpenter was able to bring the Hammer under his command via his psionic powers, he still suffered a crushing defeat at the hands of Jack Frost and the New Dresdin Outlaws.
Not long after this defeat, the protoss 7th Fleet arrived, promptly engaging the zerg Incubus Brood. Stripped of resources, the brood attacked Carpenter's forces. Its cerebrate, Auza, attempted to assimilate Carpenter, but it failed. Instead, Carpenter took control of the entire Incubus Brood.
Carpenter the CerebrateEdit
Theoretically, Carpenter had embraced the form of "humanity's saviors", though this didn't stop him from leading his new Carpenter's Brood against them, courtesy of his two goals; self-preservation and the accumulation of power. In the end, the Overmind, having lead its forces to victory over the planet, ordered the termination of the Carpenter "experiment". Unable to hold back the Swarm, Carpenter was ultimately killed when the cerebrate's body was destroyed.
