The '''Kukulkan Brood''' was created on [[Char]] by [[Sarah Kerrigan|Kerrigan]] after the death of the [[Overmind]] and was destroyed during the [[Battle of Bhekar Ro]].
+
The '''Kukulkan Brood''', introduced in [[StarCraft: Shadow of the Xel'Naga]], was one of the many [[Broods]] of the [[Zerg Swarm]].
  +
  +
Though it existed only for a short time, its warriors were ferocious and deadly, and capable of infesting any creatures they encountered. Consisting of [[Hydralisks]], [[Mutalisks]], [[Ultralisks]], [[Zerglings]], [[Drones]], [[Overlords]], [[Queens]], and later a unique strain referred to as "[[Roverlisk]]s" (by [[Edmund Duke|General Duke]]), the Brood was assembled after the death of the [[Overmind]] by [[Kerrigan]] as one of the assault Broods of her new Swarm.
   
 
==History==
 
==History==
The Kukulkan Brood was formed as an assault Brood for the Swarm. Initially it remained on Char to protect the Hive Cluster.
+
The Kukulkan Brood was formed on [[Char]] by Kerrigan after the death of the Overmind. The Brood remained there protecting the new Hive Cluster until a signal from am [[Xel'Naga Temple|artifact]] on [[Bhekar Ro]] briefly threw the Zerg into chaos. She then ordered the Kukulkan Brood to locate the artifact and capture it.

The Brood used [[Behemoth]]s, a massive strain of Zerg transport meant for carrying large numbers of Zerg through space, to travel to Bhekar Ro. The Swarm landed there and began infesting the world, building [[Hatcheries]], [[Creep Colonies]], and other structures so as to increase their numbers. In doing so, they infested "Old Blue", a sky-blue colored dog belonging to one of the colonists, and incorporated his genetics into a new strain of Zerg called the "[[Roverlisk]]". Endowed with traits including a heightened sense of smell, this was the Brood's only distinctive breed.
The Brood was dispatched to secure the [[xel'naga temple|xel'naga artifact]] on [[Bhekar Ro]]. The zerg successfully made planetfall and began infesting the area around the artifact and the local terran colony of [[Free Haven]]. An assault on the colony was thwarted by the intervention of [[Alpha Squadron]]. By that time the Brood's attention was focused on removing the protoss presence from the artifact. Ultimately the Brood was unable to secure the artifact. Following a terran nuclear strike the [[energy creature]] that emerged absorbed all of the protoss and zerg on and near the planet. The Brood was effectively destroyed.<ref name="SC:ShadXel">Mesta, Gabriel (July 1, 2001). ''[[StarCraft: Shadow of the Xel'Naga]]''. Simon & Schuster (Pocket Star). ISBN 0-671-04149-5.</ref>

After the [[Protoss]] arrived, the Kukuklkan Brood began multiplying, producing more and more creatures including [[Guardian]]s and [[Scourge]], and fighting the Protoss. A huge melee ensued when the [[Terran Dominion]] under [[Edmund Duke]] also arrived, though the Zerg and Protoss were numerous and powerful enough to defeat the overconfident Terrans without ever letting up their assault on one another.
  +
  +
Eventually, the Xel'Naga artifact culminated into [[energy creature|a new life form]], and in its spectacular birth, the creature absorbed every creature and building of the Kukulkan Brood, as well as every Protoss soldier, destroying the Brood completely.

==Special Strains==
In the process of infesting the planet, the Brood absorbed a dog named [[Old Blue]]. From Old Blue was bred the "[[Roverlisk]]." However, this strain was destroyed along with the entire brood.
+
The Kikulkan Brood created and used the [[Roverlisk]] breed in combat.
