|Title||Ancient Primal Zerg|
Background[edit | edit source]
Zurvan was an ancient of the primal zerg who resided on the planet Zerus. It bore witness to the arrival of Amon and his renegade xel'naga, who manipulated the zerg and bound them to a hive mind under the Overmind. However, some of these zerg, Zurvan included, evaded control of the Overmind, and when the Overmind departed Zerus, leaving it a barren wasteland, the primal zerg were left to repopulate the world. Zurvan survived and thrived in the brutal and savage conditions of Zerus for thousand of years, becoming one of the most powerful and ancient primal zerg to exist, evolving into a supermassive beast.
But soon the Zerg Swarm returned to Zerus under Sarah Kerrigan, who sought to remake herself as a primal zerg. After awakening Zurvan from his slumber, he led her to the first pool where of primordial material the zerg first evolved from, which would empower her as a primal zerg. This was successful, and Kerrigan became a powerful primal being. Allying with the pack leader Dehaka, she killed the other major primal pack leaders and absorbed their genetic material, but seeing her power and potential, Zurvan turned on her, hoping to consume her essence and become stronger. However, Kerrigan proved too much for the ancient beast, and slew Zurvan, absorbing his essence.
