Niadra's Brood is a zerg brood led by a broodmother named Niadra. Niadra was created by Sarah Kerrigan to slay the protoss on the Daelaam Ark as it tried to escape Kaldir and warn the protoss of Shakuras of Kerrigan's actions. During the battle, Niadra damaged the ship's propulsion systems and eliminated the protoss.

Afterwards, Niadra lost contact with Kerrigan as the ship had gotten too far away, so Niadra settled her brood in the ruins of the ship, waiting for her return.[1]
