Transformed into the Carpenter's Brood, which was later destroyed
The Incubus Brood excelled at the arts of scouting and reconnaissance. Lacking the destructive capabilities of most of the larger zerg broods, the Incubus Brood was directed to the Fringe Worlds and other small terran settlements. The brood would usually implant itself behind enemy lines, striking at infrastructure until the enemy collapsed in on itself. Due to its specialized nature, the brood made extensive use of queens, infested terrans and defilers. Direct confrontation was mostly seen as a last resort.
The Incubus Brood's main harvesting operations in the Valley of the Shadow were attacked by Syndrea's forces, led by the powerful archon Aedus/Xerxes. The brood, now starved for resources, attacked untainted terrans. Its cerebrate, Auza, attempted to assimilate Carpenter, but it failed. Instead, Carpenter took control of the entire Incubus Brood, which was now referred to as Carpenter's Brood.
The Incubus Brood is named after the incubus; a demon in male form supposed to lie upon sleepers, especially women, in order to have sexual intercourse with them, thus spawning new incubi.
