The borbu matriarch was an animal more like a colony than a single organism. They possessed fossorial legs that allowed them to burrow in the blink of an eye. It was assimilated into the Zerg Swarm, becoming the infestor.[1]

Each creature in the matriarch possessed a function in the greater whole of the creature, some serving a defensive function.[2]


In the skin description for the Leviathan Brood infestor, borbu matriarch is misspelled "borboru matriarch."[2]
