The Culling | StarCraft: Remastered (Zerg Campaign #7)

Kerrigan: Insuferrable Protoss coward! Tassadar cannot evade my wrath forever! I shall find him and–

Daggoth: Kerrigan, Zasz is dead!

Kerrigan: Oh? It is a pity that Cerebrates cannot truly be killed. I expect that the Overmind will reincarnate him soon.

Daggoth: No. He will not! The Protoss have devised some new attack. An attack powerful enough to nullify our reincarnation and give pause to the Overmind itself!

Kerrigan: So Tassadar’s plan was merely a diversion. I should not have underestimated him so.

Daggoth: Without its master, Zasz’s Brood has run amok and even now threatens the Hive cluster. Cerebrate, you must eradicate the rampaging Brood and stem any further damage it might cause. I shall deal with the Protoss myself.
