Sarah Kerrigan is a female video game character that features in StarCraft.
Sarah Louise Kerrigan was a female human who was born among the colonies located in the Koprulu Sector.
This led to her joining the Sons of Korhal as she was indebted to Mengsk and aided in his revolution against the Confederacy. The militant group looked to starting a revolution on the fringe colony world of Antiga Prime by assassinating Confederacy officers on the planet. During this time, she met new recruits in the form of Jim Raynor and a colonial magistrate both of whom were on the run from the Confederacy. In response, the Confederacy began to blockade the world at which point contact was made with an extraterrestrial species that were the hive-minded Zerg Swarm. The aliens invaded the surface where during this time the Sons of Korhal uncovered the Confederacy being aware of the Zerg and having constructed Psi-Emitters designated to attract the creatures to target locations. Against Kerrigan's advice, Mengsk had her and Raynor use the Psi-Emitter technology in an effort to break the blockade. This allowed the Sons of Korhal to escape whereupon Arcturus sought to use the technology to draw the Zerg into an attack on the Confederate capital world of Tarsonis. Kerrigan and Raynor were unaware of the fact that Mengsk intended to use the Zerg Swarm to completely destroy the planet which was when they were confronted with another alien race known as the Protoss who were attempting to curb the Swarm's rampage across space. Kerrigen along with a detachment of troops was dispatched to stop the Protoss from interfering with the Zerg's attack on Tarsonis. This led to her position being overrun and Mengsk abandoning her behind despite the pleas from Raynor leading to Sarah being captured for infestation once her ammo had run out. In the aftermath, she was presumed death with this leading to Raynor deserting Mengk's forces in disgust over his actions. Unknown to her former allies, Kerrigan had survived as her psionic potential interested the aliens ruling intelligence known as the Overmind who intended to transform her into his greatest creation for the benefit of the Zerg. The entity known as Abathur was then used to transform the Terran into a powerful creature to serve the Swarm. Her body was slowly going through a metamorphosis within a chrysalis with the Overmind tasking a newly created Cerebrate with protecting the entity within it.
