Abathur is a video game character who features in Starcraft.
Abathur was an organism that was created by the Overmind during the departure of the Zerg from their homeworld of Zerus. The hive-minded race sought out to assimilate other forms of life and incorporate it within the Swarm in order to achieve perfection. To aid in this process, the Overmind used genetic sequences from various races that were assimilated in order to spin an organism to improve the Zerg’s evolution. There would be no other creature like it as it would be a brood of one leading to the emergence of Abathur.
After the capture of Sarah Kerrigan, the Overmind sensed within the Terran the potential to become its greatest creation. Thus, she was given over to Abathur who had her go through a painful transformation into becoming one of the Zerg.
