Morik is an infested terran. He is skilled in the use of explosives, ones that don't involve his own detonation.
- Morik after being found by the Space Pirates(src)
Morik was infested in an experiment conducted by Terran Confederacy scientists after the Brood War, in a secret military installation. However, he has been described as "a little batty" for his desire to "KILL! KILL! KILL!"
He was rescued by the Kimeran Pirates when they raided a Confederate science facility. Morik went on a rampage through the facility, freeing protoss and zerg test subjects, killing guards. As the facility began to destroy itself, the pirates were retrieved by the Kimera, and one of them spoke up for Morik, telling Buzan that he seemed to be okay. Buzan was dubious, but nonetheless extracted Morik along with his operatives.
Many zerg ground units may burrow, rendering themselves invisible but incapable of moving or attacking.
