Heart of the Swarm
After Kerrigan was de-infested and captured by terran forces, Zagara struck out on her own, establishing herself and her brood in an acid marsh on Char. In the absence of the Queen of Blades, Zagara sought to reunite the Swarm under her own leadership.
Kerrigan's return did not change this however, and Zagara challenged her authority. Kerrigan now appeared human and therefore, in Zagara's eyes, was unworthy to lead the Swarm. Kerrigan was able to control far more zerg than Zagara anticipated however and the brood mother was defeated. Kerrigan was about to kill Zagara, who revealed that she was only doing what she was told. The broodmother was forgiven and joined Kerrigan's forces.
Kerrigan decided to take on Zagara as a protégé, but was frustrated by Zagara's lack of vision (and, for that matter, not understanding the concept at all). To this end, she sent Zagara to Abathur for treatments to increase the size and complexity of her brain mass. After several unpleasant manipulations, Zagara's intelligence was finally sufficient to grasp Kerrigan's lessons- it was also sufficient for her to realize that she was not ready to rule the Swarm.
Zagara served as Kerrigan's second-in-command for the remainder of her campaign against Mengsk. Most notably, she defended Kerrigan's chrysalis and coordinated the Swarm on Zerus. When Kerrigan was severely injured in her battle with Emil Narud, Zagara briefly assumed command of the Swarm, but declined to kill Kerrigan, as she still had much to learn.
- In early builds of StarCraft II: Heart of the Swarm, the name of Zagara and her brood was spelled Za'gara.
