Cerebrate
Kerrigan's lieutenant (September 2500—?)

"Greetings, Cerebrate. By now you've realized that I've severed your connection with the Overmind and your renegade brethren. Understand, it's nothing personal. I just can't risk you falling under their influence. You're mine now. Serve me unquestioningly, and I'll let you live."

- Kerrigan greets the Cerebrate(src)

The cerebrate was the player character of StarCraft Episode VI, working as Infested Kerrigan's lieutenant and commander for her Swarms.

BiographyEdit

A New AllegianceEdit

The cerebrate was part of Daggoth's Renegade Swarm after the death of the first Overmind. During the Brood War, Infested Kerrigan seized control of the cerebrate by severing its ties to the Second Overmind. She immediately used it to quell the disruption to her Tarsonis hive clusters caused by the Psi Disrupter.[1] Kerrigan secured the aid of Raynor's Raiders and Arcturus Mengsk against the UED Expeditionary Fleet. The cerebrate took control of Braxis zerg liberated by Dominion psi-emitters and used them to destroy the Psi Disrupter.[2] Later, it helped raid the Kel-Morian Combine alongside protoss Praetor Fenix. The Combine's resources were needed for the coming assault on UED-held Korhal. Kerrigan ordered the cerebrate to infest as many command centers as possible.[3]

The Liberation of KorhalEdit

The cerebrate spearheaded the assault on Augustgrad, Korhal. The UED and their zerg slaves were routed, and control nominally returned to Mengsk and the Dominion.[4] Kerrigan's allies were her next targets. She ordered the cerebrate to assail Dominion and protoss forces who were resting after the victory. General Edmund Duke and Praetor Fenix were both killed before the zerg withdrew to Tarsonis.[5]

The UED were not yet out of the fight. UED slave broods descended on Kerrigan's Tarsonis hive clusters. The cerebrate broke the assault by killing the intermediary UED scientists with the attack force.[6] The cerebrate oversaw the destruction of Talematros on Shakuras. This spectacular diversion allowed the recovery of the Dark Templar Matriarch Raszagal.[7] the cerebrate used the coerced Dark Templar to assault Char and kill the second Overmind.[8]. After the Overmind, Zeratul stole back Raszagal and the cerebrate was forced to pursue them.[9]. The newly-reunited Swarm returned to Char and were attacked by the Terran Dominion, protoss, and United Earth Directorate simultaneously. The cerebrate defeated all three at the Battle of Char Aleph. The Brood War was over.[10]

AftermathEdit

Following the war, the cerebrate provided genetics assistance for Kerrigan's advanced infested terran project. Terrans Henderson and Amanda Haley were both (unsuccessful) victims.[11]

It died during the interbellum with the remainder of the cerebrates. Kerrigan no longer required their services[12] and they were exterminated.[13]
