Carpenter's Brood had two goals, self-preservation and the accumulation of power. As the small brood received commands directly from Carpenter, it could react more quickly to any immediate situation.
History[edit | edit source]
Formation[edit | edit source]
The planet of Brontes IV had been invaded by the zerg, among which was the Incubus Brood. The brood's main harvesting operations in the Valley of the Shadow were attacked by Judicator Syndrea's forces, led by the powerful archon Aedus/Xerxes. The brood, now starved for resources, attacked untainted terrans. Its cerebrate, Auza, attempted to assimilate renegade ghost Atticus Carpenter, but it failed. Instead, Carpenter took control of the entire Incubus Brood. An alliance between 7th Fleet forces under Edullon and Demioch, along with New Dresdin Outlaw forces under Jack Frost, Black Morgan and Charlie Vane attacked one of Carpenter's hive clusters (and its allied Bahumut Brood hive cluster), destroying the clusters.
Against the Overmind[edit | edit source]
The Overmind realized what a threat Carpenter had become as his power grew within Auza, and considered this a "betrayal" from Carpenter. Carpenter's Brood attacked again during another Zerg Swarm operation. The Overmind ordered a revenge assault against the renegade brood.
Finally, the Overmind had conquered the other forces on the planet and ordered a termination of the Carpenter "experiment". The Zerg Swarm attacked Carpenter's Brood's main hive clusters, and discovered Hunter Killers, Screamers and the Blade Guardian within its clutches. These powerful zerg strains fell under the leading cerebrate's control and were used in the assault.
Unable to hold back the Swarm, Carpenter was ultimately killed when the cerebrate's body was destroyed, ending the insurrection against the Swarm.
