The Carpenter's Hand Maiden, also known as Carpenter's Maiden, was a powerful strain of queen used by Carpenter's Brood.[1][2]

Three Carpenter's Maidens were seen infesting the remaining terran command centers on Brontes IV, but they were destroyed by the Zerg Swarm.[2] A last Carpenter's Hand Maiden was seen defending Atticus Carpenter himself, but it was destroyed along with the entirety of Carpenter's Brood when the Overmind ordered the destruction of the rogue cerebrate.[1]

Converts a badly damaged terran command center into an infested command center. A queen moves over a flying or grounded building and disappears for a short time. Control of the building only changes when the infesting queen reappears. The now-infested command center is restored to full health.
