"A leader of the primal zerg who rules his pack through sheer might and terror. Incredibly maniacal and obsessed with combat."

- Character description(src)

Kraith was a primal zerg pack leader on Zerus and leader of Kraith's Pack. According to Zurvan, Kraith was "immense and consumed by hatred."


After Sarah Kerrigan's rebirth on Zerus as the primal Queen of Blades, the primal pack leaders sent most of their forces against her Swarm, leaving themselves vulnerable. While Zagara defended Kerrigan's leviathan against the primal forces, Kerrigan, aided by Dehaka's pack, set out to challenge the pack leaders personally. After killing Yagdra, Kerrigan went after Kraith next. She fought her way through his pack, before confronting Kraith himself. The two leaders battled, and Kerrigan emerged victorious. After killing Kraith, she absorbed his essence.[2]

After Kraith's death, a primal zerg named Dakrun took the title "Devourer of Kraith's Pack."[3]


"I feel your strength...You will be worth killing, worth the blood!"

- Kraith(src)

Kraith has a rapid projectile attack, in which he fires small immobile creatures, with a wide spread, but a short range. The area is displayed before the attack emerges.

Kraith can make a charge attack. The line of attack is shown on the map before the attack goes off. At the end, he slams into a wall and stops moving briefly. Any creature hit by the dash attack would be sent flying. Immediately afterwards, primal zerglings fall from above to aid him in battle.

As with the other pack leaders, Kraith's remaining minions will die once he is killed.[2]
