Before TimeEdit

Weren't the four cerebrates destroyed when the protoss steralised the planet?--Hawki 21:12, 11 August 2007 (UTC)

Yes, but they were alive after Kerrigan "whacked out all the Cerebrates". PsiSeveredHead 21:53, 11 August 2007 (UTC)

Things are weird since she take over the Zerg and was infested.

This is one popular character for no reason. reason?

Well, you're entitled to your oppinion I guess.--Hawki 09:23, 22 September 2007 (UTC)

She is immortal. I guess she will be permanently infested forever but might die infested. (Assaulthead 02:02, 9 October 2007 (UTC))

Also everyone don't forget about her HP of 250 and Attack of 30 in her Ghost for and her infested terran form has a health of 400 and the attack of 50.(Soldier 79 17:14, 25 October 2007 (UTC))

Fixing article... still Edit

Kerrigan's article still needs fixing in the Episode I area (especially relating to her actions and to her growing disagreement with Mengsk). Will work on that soon. PsiSeveredHead 22:29, 10 November 2007 (UTC)

There's a typo in the caption of the 'kerrigan confronts zertaul [sic]' video.

Fixed. PSH aka Kimera 757 (talk) 22:15, October 21, 2009 (UTC)

Stats Edit

Since Kerrigan will be appearing infested in StarCraft II, is there any point of putting up her stats in the article? I can't put them in the game unit area because that might overlap the references too much ... and she's got lots of references. PsiSeveredHead 03:44, 25 November 2007 (UTC)

I guess the template could be used in front of the character box. As for SC2, it could be merged in with the same box (eg. hp 400/500 (StarCraft I and II respectively). Simple '/' can work.--Hawki 04:31, 25 November 2007 (UTC)

Her name is Sarah, not Infested. Edit

I've found an awful lot of articles that refer to her as "Infested Kerrigan." This is not the right way to label her. Yes, the in-game unit was called that, but only to differentiate it from the "Sarah Kerrigan" unit. None of the characters in-game or official sources like novels or websites refer to her as Infested Kerrigan: her name is Sarah Kerrigan, and she likes to go by the name "Queen of Blades." Please, pick one of those. Captain J 03:41, 19 March 2008 (UTC)

Or even just "Kerrigan," which everyone refers to her as in Brood War. -- Dark T Zeratul 06:02, 19 March 2008 (UTC)

Under the assumption that she DOESN'T get labelled as Infested Kerrigan, what alternative is there? Queen of Blades is a moniker title and conflicts with Episode VI and the novel. And if links were just given to Sarah Kerrigan in the context of her infested form, that would require a lot of scrolling.

In short, until (or if) Psi and Meco put in their words, I think "Infested Kerrigan" should remain a necessary evil.--Hawki 09:38, 19 March 2008 (UTC)

I suggest we refer to her as "Kerrigan", that being the name everyone agrees on, and link her name to Sarah Kerrigan#Infested Kerrigan: No scrolling required. I'm not saying we don't ever refer to her as Infested Kerrigan, but we shouldn't use that as a proper name; "Infested Kerrigan went to the base" doesn't sound right. I freely admit that using "Queen of Blades" as her proper name would get old really fast, but it's not like she's a completely different person from the red-haired Ghost. (Psychotic megalomania notwithstanding) Captain J 17:10, 19 March 2008 (UTC)

Kerrigan won't work; there's already a character named Patrick Kerrigan. Infested Kerrigan links are also present on 90 pages (I just checked).

Infested Kerrigan is practically a title for her, but we don't see her being called "Queen Kerrigan" anywhere. PsiSeveredHead 21:45, 19 March 2008 (UTC)

Ghost Kerrigan's Range Edit

Hero Ghosts have a range of 6, or 192 pixels. Regular Ghosts have a range of 7, or 224 pixels. I suppose she SHOULD have a range of 7, but that doesn't change the fact that she doesn't. 02:09, 27 July 2008 (UTC)

Please tell me how you measured this. As long as such info is explained or referenced, it can stay. Kimera 757 (talk) 02:11, 27 July 2008 (UTC)

I'm making a test map right now, and I'll show you the picture, but you can try a quick example by attacking Kerrigan and a ghost together, the ghost won't have to move, but Kerrigan will. 02:21, 27 July 2008 (UTC) It doesn't prove that she has a range of 192 pixels, to do that you'd need to have a bunch of zerglings in a line, burrowed, 1 pixel apart. It's easier to assume 6x32=192. This can also be seen in the melee units, SCVs have a range of 10 pixels, while drones/probes/firebats have a range of 32 pixels. I think scourges are 3, and infested terrans are 2, and most other melee units are 15. These numbers are offhand, from a faq I remember reading somewhere. Barring that, DatEdit can tell you the ranges of weapons (and you can change them if you're modding), and it reports that a Ghost's Rifle has a range of 14, while Kerrigan's Rifle has a range of 03:02, 27 July 2008 (UTC)

Kerrigan didn't do zerg trailer voiceover? Edit

Apparently it was done by Joanna Cleland, who voiced a queen!

Interesting. Must confirm. Kimera 757 (talk) 12:35, 13 October 2008 (UTC)

Mythological Connections?Edit

I may just be seeing things here, but is it worth mentioning in the trivia section that Infested Kerrigan may be partially based off the Gorgon Medusa from Greek mythology? Her 'hair' is similar to snakes in a sense and as she says on Char, "my stare alone could reduce you to ashes." Not exactly the same as turning people to stone, but it's a similar concept, albeit exagerated.

Anyway, there are many mythological references in SC, and I thought this could be one of them. Thought it best to get feedback before posting though.--Hawki 09:40, 3 November 2008 (UTC)

Xenomorphs? Edit

I was reading the article and noticed that it says "Xenomorph" instead of "Zerg" this cant be right....

At that time period, terrans were referring to zerg as xenomorphs. If you see a link and click it, it'll take you to the zerg page. Kimera 757 (talk) 15:21, 1 February 2009 (UTC)

Yeah I just found this... "The term "Xenomorph" is a Greek-derived phrase meaning either "alien form" or "foreign shape.""

Ah, Irony. What's in a name?Edit

Sarah's names have quite ironic implications.

Sarah is a Hebrew name that denotes a woman of high rank. It is usually translated as "princess." Kerrigan is of Gaelic origin. It is usually translated as "dark."

What do you get when you combine the names? "Dark Princess." Hah!

Ethnicity as human? Edit

From the ingame picture I thought Kerrigan was black when she was human. The new concept art shows her as white. What's going on? 18:28, February 23, 2010 (UTC)

She's always been white. -- Dark T Zeratul 19:24, February 23, 2010 (UTC)

It might possible that she was white, but still, her in-game picture indicates that she was black, or at least half-black. Clarification would be a good thing. 16:26, June 11, 2010 (UTC)Limrasson, 2010.06.11. 18:25 (GMT+1)

Sarah Kerrigan was never black, or half black. Look at her icon here: She is as white skinned and red headed as it gets. Quite frankly, I don't know how you got the impression she wasn't. Adriun123 00:57, August 7, 2010 (UTC)

Given the sci-fi nature of the setting, ethnicity means nothing. But if you look at the recent commercial for StarCraft II, it's abundantly clear that Kerrigan is a green-eyed, red-haired woman with an Irish surname.

Actually, Raynor has had similar comments; not over ethnicity, but just over his hair color (which was actually described as "sandy blond" in Liberty's Crusade, but is dark brown or black in StarCraft II). It's a little hard to see such details in the tiny little portraits you get in StarCraft I. PSH aka Kimera 757 (talk) contribs) 22:26, June 11, 2010 (UTC)

She looks more black in the SC1 icon than in the SC2 concept art. Hair can be dyed red. I thought the Ghost programme gave people weird eyes. Surnames are not always be exclusively ethnic. If she's white in SC2 then maybe it should be retconned that she was using fake tan, hair dye, botox and colored contacts in SC1.

Remember to sign your posts.

I remember Liberty's Crusade mentioning her being tanned I think, but it's probably academic. I don't think there's an official policy on it, but I think it's best to avoid making statements in articles that pertain to changes in appearance, given shifting art style. The CMC-300/400 debacle is a good case for such aversion.--Hawki 06:36, December 17, 2010 (UTC)

She always looked half black with hair that was dyed and or dread locks. I don't like her SC2 image, but what can you do? Her voice is wrong too. Oh well. -- 03:38, May 20, 2011 (UTC)

Infested Kerrigan transport slot. Edit

I noticed that the Terran kerrigan information box have this "Transport slots" infobox --->

Transport slots

The Zerg Kerrigan can also be transported in overlords, but there is no "Transport slots" infobox in the Kerrigan version below. Is there any good reason for this? - Tommten 09:40, May 22, 2010 (UTC)

The template was added a long time ago, so it's probably missing the field. I haven't tested that recently, but can do so today and update it. PSH aka Kimera 757 (talk) contribs) 12:29, May 22, 2010 (UTC)

1 slot. PSH aka Kimera 757 (talk) contribs) 22:26, June 11, 2010 (UTC)

Consume Edit

In the notes of kerrigan consume ability it says: "Because she gains the same amount of energy each time regardless of the unit it consumes"

I think it should say: "Because she gains the same amount of energy each time regardless of the unit she consumes"

It doesnt sound right when refering to her as a she first, then calling her "it" later in the same sentence. I dont know how to edit that note box, so I mention it here instead. I guess you can remove this talk section when the change is done... (unsigned comment)

Okay, I've fixed it. PSH aka Kimera 757 (talk) contribs) 23:19, June 12, 2010 (UTC)

Intro Quote Edit

To me, it doesn't really work too well... As I see it, intro quotes need to describe the person in the article... I think something more like "I'm basically the queen bitch of the universe." works better as a intro quote. Tanooki1432 22:30, July 24, 2010 (UTC)

Breaking the Article into 2 Articles Edit

I vote we break the article into two seperate articles, one dealing with her before she was infested, "Sarah Kerrigan" and the other dealing with her after she was infested "Infested Kerrigan" or "Queen of Blades". There seems to be enough difference post and pre-infestation that they could both float as two articles, similar to how "Arthas", "Ner'zhul" and "The Lich King" are each their own seperate articles over at wowwiki. Tanooki1432 16:14, July 26, 2010 (UTC)

What's the point ? I mean , well , I don't want to post any spolers , but "when you finish Wings of Liberty , you'll find that Sarah Kerrigan and Infested Kerrigan aren't too different after all" . Andra2404 16:46, July 26, 2010 (UTC)

I am more comfortable with Kerrigan having a single primary article.

The big difference between the "Arthas"/"Ner'zhul"/"The Lich King" situation and Kerrigan is that Kerrigan is still a single character. The Lich King is neither here nor there due to the merging. If the fundamental reason for a split is because she was infested, then every infested terran needs similar treatment. After all, they all underwent significant physiological and, presumably, psychological changes.

On the other hand, if the primary motivation is that the article is so long, then we might consider splitting the biography into subarticles, although that would be rather... unconventional.

I wonder if Wikipedia provides any precedents.

In any case, I think we need to wait. WoL has muddied things a bit, and HotS may (although I find it very unlikely, since I am not a hopeless romantic) surprise us. - Meco (talk, contribs) 16:49, July 26, 2010 (UTC)

Bad example, Tanooki1432. Ner'zhul was became the warchief for all orcs on Draenor after the humans won Warcraft 2: Tides of Darkness and defeated the orcs led by Orgrim Doomhammer. So Ner'zhul was the orc leader in the expansion Warcraft 2: Beyond the Dark Portal. At the end of that game he opened up portals which ripped apart the planet of Draenor (leaving behind only Outland), and Ner'zhul ended up being ripped apart by the great demon lord Kil'jaeden, who kept Ner'zhul's spirit alive and enslaved him as the Lich King. In Warcraft III: Reign of Chaos, Prince Arthas Menethil, son of King Terenas Menethil, was a noble and brave paladin who became gradually corrupted by desire for vengeance against the undead plague, and he claimed the sword Frostmourne to defeat the dreadlord he thought was behind the undead plague, and the sword stole his soul and made him a slave to the Lich King Ner'zhul, transforming him from a paladin into a death knight. Then eventually at the end of the expansion Warcraft III: The Frozen Throne, Arthas and the Lich King Ner'zhul became one after Arthas used Frostmourne to shatter the Lich King's icy prison and put on the Lich King's helmet. For awhile after that, the Lich King was the union of Arthas and Ner'zhul, living in Arthas's body with Ner'zhul's helmet on, but eventually in World of Warcraft: Wrath of the Lich King, that Lich King was killed (or at least Arthas was) and Bolvar Fordragon put on the helmet of Ner'zhul and became the new Lich King. So, Arthas, Ner'zhul, and Bolvar are all separate characters, and the Lich King is a title that each of them has at some point.

How does this compare to Sarah Kerrigan? She was Sarah Kerrigan when she was born, she was still Sarah Kerrigan when she got infested by the Overmind and put in a chrysalis, and she never stopped being Sarah Kerrigan. When Alexei Stukov was reanimated as an infested terran, he was still Alexei Stukov, not a different character, and he got de-infested back to his original self: still Alexei Stukov. When Samir Duran stopped appearing in-game as a terran ghost and appeared in-game as an infested terran, he was still Samir Duran. So that example of the Lich King really is not a good example of why the character Sarah Kerrigan should be split up into articles describing her pre-infestation and post-infestation. The Lich King HAS to be a separate article from Arthas, Ner'zhul, etc., because it is something different. Infested Kerrigan is Sarah Kerrigan, one and the same entity. There are separate articles for the first Overmind and the second Overmind because the first one was killed by Tassadar and the second was a different entity created by the cerebrate Daggoth merging with other cerebrates. The only good counterexample to all these examples is Ulrezaj, who merged with other dark templar to become a super-powerful dark archon, but is still in the same article. However, Ulrezaj is only one article, despite the dark templar Ulrezaj being a different entity from the dark archon Ulrezaj which had formed from several different dark templar. So I agree with Andra2404 and Meco. There can be only one Sarah Kerrigan! --The Overmind 19:39, July 26, 2010 (UTC)

Points taken. I rest my case (what little bit of it I had) and bury my arguement. Tanooki1432 19:42, July 26, 2010 (UTC)

Also, Blizzard seems to be playing with the race of Sarah Kerrigan . First, she was a terran. Then, she was taken by the zerg and transformed into an infested terran. Then, with the Xel'Naga artifact, she became deinfested{from what we know}, so terran once more . In Heart of the Swarm, it seems she will be infested once more. How can you write all that with 2 separate articles ? Andra2404 06:55, July 31, 2010 (UTC)

I wouldn't jump to the conclusion that she'll be infested again by HotS. Remember, Blizzard dropped HotS and LotV on us two years ago and I don't care that they said HotS will be focusing on INFESTED Kerrigan. They may have either changed the story since then, or they were simply setting us up (think about it: if they had said two years ago that HotS would have focused on an uninfested Kerrigan, that would have given the ending away for WoL wouldn't it?). I'd wait until HotS to make the confirmation if she becomes infested again or not. Tanooki1432 15:44, August 2, 2010 (UTC)

Well, I finally finished the campaign. There's a lot of text there. We shouldn't split the article into two, however. She's still one character. (The Lich King was different, in that two separate characters got fused.) Since at present she's not infested, she probably shouldn't be regarded as the current leader of the Zerg Swarm. We can sort that out later when Heart of the Swarm starts. PSH aka Kimera 757 (talk) contribs) 20:42, August 2, 2010 (UTC)

"New" kerrigan and info about her in SC2 Edit

Hi I'm new here and i just want to ask can anybody add the picture of a "new" Kerrigan (human shape with zerg dreads). I think that her page needs to update about events on Char... That's all. Sleeping Sun 20:35, July 30, 2010

Is her PI 8 or 12 (I think) like Adjutant said when she appears in the last mission in SC2? Sleeping Sun 13:54, July 31, 2010

Updating to current lore.Edit

Can someone please update the article? I'm afraid it is quite beyond me to update it properly, at least to make it look proffessional. Thanks. Zamoonda 16:12, August 3, 2010 (UTC)

When we have an update for Wings of Liberty, which I'm doing right now. PSH aka Kimera 757 (talk) contribs) 17:28, August 3, 2010 (UTC)

Did it... except it had already been updated. You just need to push the spoiler block near the bottom of the lore section. PSH aka Kimera 757 (talk) contribs) 17:57, August 3, 2010 (UTC)

We should seriously change her avatar.Zamoonda 17:05, August 4, 2010 (UTC)

Yeah, I'll get a screenshot. PSH aka Kimera 757 (talk) contribs) 17:07, August 4, 2010 (UTC)

Or maybe someone else should get it. My computer demanded I do a "repair installation" of StarCraft II. Lame! Also, I don't know where screenshot images are stored. PSH aka Kimera 757 (talk) contribs) 17:11, August 4, 2010 (UTC)

Aight, which one do you want? The one where she's like that is already used. Maybe the normal one, her looking like a ghost from the trailer? Gonna use the one where she says "Don't give up!" right at like 99% of Artifact percentage. Zamoonda 17:45, August 4, 2010 (UTC)

Did I somehow miss that last one? Anyway, can you get a screenshot from the final cinematic, where they show her face? (With the dreads, but human skin and eye color?) PSH aka Kimera 757 (talk) contribs) 17:54, August 4, 2010 (UTC)

If you're trying to get her as a tendrailhead, there are two really good moments in the final cinimatic that I can think of: the first one is right after they find her, she's looking at Raynor (she's crying and says "Jim...") and another one right after Raynor shoots Tychus. He blocks the bullet, pulls out his gun and shoots, causing the screen to go dark, and then you see her face, the ground is moving underneath and Raynor is carrying her. If you want a redhead, we have a couple pics already of her as redhead in the article. Tanooki1432 17:58, August 4, 2010 (UTC)
Thanks for the epic suggestion. Done. Zamoonda 18:32, August 4, 2010 (UTC)


Where are the terran occupations ? Only the zerg occupations are present . Why is that ?Andra2404 15:58, August 4, 2010 (UTC)

Because her current occupation is unknown. Unless you want to make occupation "a naked female asleep in the arms of Jim Raynor" :P Zamoonda 17:46, August 4, 2010 (UTC)

No, I meant the previous, before infestation: in the Confederacy, she was a ghost. In the Sons of Korhal, she was lieutenant. All this is missing. Andra2404 16:13, August 9, 2010 (UTC)

article image Edit

Don't you think the image counts as a spoiler? If the fact that she becomes deinfested is in it's own hidden spoiler section of the article, does it make sense to have a picture of a deinfested Sarah Kerrigan at the top of the page? I think the image should be reverted to her queen of blades form, at least until Heart of the Swarm expansion is released and we know for sure that she's truly deinfested and that she is now truly human once more. Or at the very least revert it to a picture of her human form from one of the SC2 cinematics. 20:29, August 4, 2010 (UTC)

Why do we have that spoiler block anyway? Aren't we working on the principle of "reader beware"? - Meco (talk, contribs) 20:53, August 4, 2010 (UTC)
StarCraft II: Wings of Liberty has launched. Warning: the wiki may contain spoilers.
All additions must be referenced. Read this before creating new achievements articles.
Please report bad ads. This includes ads promoting software piracy and hacks. Zamoonda 13:28, August 5, 2010 (UTC)
I agree with the spoiler. I know we have reader beware and such, but suppose someone just wants to read up on Kerrigan and stop at the part where SC2 happens because they don't have it yet, and then suddenly they get there and the site pretty much screams "oh yeah, she becomes disinfected at the end of wings of liberty". Personally, I think the original human kerrigan images would suffice and then that picture could be used later in the article. It's unique, because rarely does a generic picture of a character reveal so much plot unintentionally. 12:44, August 6, 2010 (UTC)

As much as I want to agree with you mate, that won't much do. It wouldn't exactly be correct to give her red hair, because for all we know maybe she's no wcursed with those dreadlocks forever. And it wouldn't be correct to put the infested kerrian, because we've updated the wiki. And it wouldn't be fair for those just wishing to read up on Kerrigan, Raynor etc and all those without playing SC1, right before playing sc2 so they won't be lost.

Honestly, I don't know what to do in this dilemna. Zamoonda 13:06, August 6, 2010 (UTC)

Spoiler or not, the picture is also not a good representation of who she is and how she has appeared all throughout the Starcraft storyline. It's just a flat out bad representation of her when you only see that little bit about her at the very end of Starcraft 2: Wings of Liberty! Adriun123 01:01, August 7, 2010 (UTC)

Impractical to try and "average" an image. Let the image in the box be the latest as we know it, and let the images throughout the prose depict the evolution. - Meco (talk, contribs) 01:14, August 7, 2010 (UTC)

That is actually the best image we can get right now. You don't know if she's now cursed with dreadlocks (unlikely), yet however possible. Unless we get a source of a newer image, we are unable to post anything other than this. You only got images of her from areas she's no longer at / destroyed, or of her in ghost uniform; all whom would be a bad representation of her current status. Zamoonda 12:12, August 7, 2010 (UTC)
I don't understand the logic behind that. Why would you choose an image that is the 'latest' over an image that is more iconic? If she is de-infected, she will likely grow her hair back, so just use an image of her in human form with her red hair. It seems like this is just an attempt by fad-driven Starcraft 2 haters to spoil it for people. This exact image is used in "Snape kills Dumbledore"-type threads everywhere. Adriun123 04:47, August 8, 2010 (UTC)
That's making the assumption that she will, in fact, be a terran in Heart of the Swarm. We don't know that. We only know (based on very old info, it'd be nice if Blizzard updated it) that she will still be leading zerg, and even evolving. It's possible she's just "less infested" now. PSH aka Kimera 757 (talk) contribs) 13:54, August 8, 2010 (UTC)

I think full precaution should be taken to prevent spoilers, regardless of principal. I vote the image be changed. It's not necessarily indicative of Kerrigan regardless of it's spoiler status. Bix.316 13:59, August 29, 2010 (UTC)

Indicative or not, it's still more accurate than any image for her infested or terran form and any other is a misrepresentation. The wiki banner clearly states that this wiki contains spoilers, not to mention that it's been a month since WoL was released. Kerrigan's deinfestation is hardly a secret.--Hawki 14:16, August 29, 2010 (UTC)

Now that the game has been out for more than a month, there's no point to avoiding spoilers. Using her red-haired image would be like using an old picture of Michael Jackson (or any star who has recently undergone plastic surgery); it's only accurate "chronologically", but it's not what he last looked like.

Furthermore, her race is listed as terran (rather than infested terran) in the box. That info is "spoilered" right at the top of the page anyway. PSH aka Kimera 757 (talk) contribs) 15:06, August 29, 2010 (UTC)

Infested Karrigan Model Edit

In the game files one can find the entire Infested kerrigan model used soly for the "talky" parts of the game. Just leaving it here if any one wants to see it. User:Terrorblades

Sarah's ghost number is the same as Jean Valjean's prisoner number in Les Misérables.

partially deinfested form? Edit

Noticed an interesting new image with a caption suggesting her partial re-infestation. Anyone know if it's blizzard offficial or just fan art? Brainwasher5 00:03, October 3, 2010 (UTC)

It's supposed to be official, but I have my doubts about it. It's from a page with lots of official art, but I'll count this as a challenge and hide it for now. PSH aka Kimera 757 (talk) contribs) 00:05, October 3, 2010 (UTC)

I've seen a few links to the Taipei exhibit and I've seen the image crop up a few times. Still, I've regulated it back to the notes section, as its implications contradict BC10 implications. And being just that, it's better suited for notes than an in-universe section. Still, the latter image may be a better one to use.--Hawki 11:18, November 21, 2010 (UTC)

The Blizzcon page for 2011 seems to show Kerrigan in a Ghost uniform, I uploaded an image if anyone wants to add it to the article in the appropriate place: --NoGardE 16:03, 4/12/2011 (PDT)


And while on the talk page, I cut back on notes-I think that what was done for WoL could be repeated for the original games, having scripts for them. Kerrigan's quotes would fit in there. Still, that's on the 'to do' list.--Hawki 11:54, November 21, 2010 (UTC)

Eye color Edit

May I ask why is her eye color labeled as "glowing amber"? And is that picture in the information table canon? Doesn't this contradict with the SC2 end cinematic? Svetoslav 19:12, April 28, 2011 (UTC)

The last time we got a "fix" on the eye color, it was glowing yellow. (And it's also glowing yellow in the current picture.)

I see someone changed the picture. That's supposedly from Heart of the Swarm, which will probably be displayed at BlizzCon 2011. I don't know... it might be too early to be using that. PSH aka Kimera 757 (talk) contribs) 22:37, April 28, 2011 (UTC)

Whatever her eye color on the site, it certainly isn't yellow in the same sense that it was in WoL for instance-it's just too dark a shade. Any official statement as to her colors might overrule it, but amber seemed to be the color it best fit, situated between yellow and orange. And while the picture itself isn't perfect given the limits of extraction, it almost certainly has basis in that the images of Thrall and Diablo correspond to pre-existing ones. I doubt the image is inaccurate or anything and as it's the first thing one sees upon reaching Blizzard's website, it's hardly a spoiler.--Hawki 23:06, April 28, 2011 (UTC)

Psionic CategorizationEdit

This is something that's been bugging me for awhile now, but as per beta files, it's come to the forefront. Basically, it's the nature of Kerrigan's psionic powers in HotS. Not so much the powers themselves, but how they should be categorized on the psi powers template, and on the list. The implication is that Spec-Ops is her tapping into her ghost/terran side. Yet using her unlocking of her psionic storm back in SC1 as a basis, these are arguably zerg abilities, in that infestation/artifact effects allowed them to be unlocked. Heck, you could even argue that they're xel'naga psionics if the artifact is the trigger.

Creation of articles and categorization is something that should probably wait until final release, where we'll have more background info. But I'm open to ideas all the same, especially since it uncovers the psionic storm power categorization. Do we classify these abilities as terran (ghost side), zerg (per the psionic storm categorization) or xel'naga (if the artifact is the trigger)? Or create an "other" line on the template?

Just food for thought.--Hawki (talk) 13:15, October 4, 2012 (UTC)

If we're just talking her HotS abilities, they're organized with some very out-of-date information.
But as for the psionics template (maybe this discussion should have gone to that talk page) maybe we just need a Kerrigan-specific section, as her power sources are more than a little confusing. PSH aka Kimera 757 (talk) contribs) 21:56, October 4, 2012 (UTC)
That could work, to create a sub-line for Kerrigan (similar to the psionic philosophy one for the protoss) and an "other" for run of the mill zerg powers such as telepathy and telekinesis.--Hawki (talk) 22:48, October 4, 2012 (UTC)

Two different voice actorsEdit

Why did Glynnis Talken-Campbell not return to voice her in StarCraft II? MarKreationsStudios1 (talk) 19:15, April 21, 2015 (UTC)


Why isn't Sarah Louise Kerrigan Redirected to this page anymore? Fix it so it is again. Vendanis (talk) 13:35, October 1, 2015 (UTC)

Not a generally used redirect. Special:WhatLinksHere/Sarah_Louise_Kerrigan shows only your user page is using it. You do know that the link and displayed text of a wiki link do not need to be same, yes? You can easily do: [[Sarah Kerrigan|Sarah Louise Kerrigan]] - Meco (talk, contribs) 16:18, October 1, 2015 (UTC)

Kerrigan Xel'naga picture Edit

Probably shouldn't have Kerrigans Xel'Naga form as the first picture seen, as much as you shouldn't go to a wiki if you want to avoid spoilers it still feels like thats an easy trap for those who just wanted to check up on minor info.

Agreed. Besides, her infested form is the iconic image, it's better to use that. DrakeyC (talk) 01:54, November 23, 2015 (UTC)
Have to agree. Not really from the angle of preventing others from being spoiled, but the fact her infested form is her iconic look. Don't really buy the "most recent image" policy and think it's ill-suited here. 08:26, December 9, 2015 (UTC)

Actually disagree. It's always been policy to use the most recent image rather than what is considered iconic. And on the subject, there's some stuff I want to address concerning the whole Kerrigan 'thing':

  • The image itself, as stated, is the best representation of Kerrigan's last confirmed form (key word on "confirmed," I'll get to that later). Similar to how her WoL ending image was the one used pre-HotS, as it was the best image representation of her physical form that was possessed at the time (and likewise, her h-suit image was used pre-primal form.
  • Concerning the ending, I've tried to keep things as vague and inclusive as possible. But something people seemed to have missed is the following:
    • The bar sequence is intentionally up for interpretation. The exact line from the DVD is (paraphrased) "is it a dream? Maybe. Maybe not." As such, while it should be included in respective articles, the material has to be written in such a way that it accounts for the possibility that what we're seeing may or may not be real.
    • Even if one takes the ending as writ, that Kerrigan really is there, that still begs the question of whether or not she's still xel'naga. Hence the question mark in the character box, and keeping her status vague.--Hawki (talk) 18:46, November 26, 2015 (UTC)

Too long to read... Edit

Some of these character articles are getting rediculously long. Should Kerrigan be split into more manageable Sarah Kerrigan/Queen of Blades? (Lore), Kerrigan (SC1 Game Unit), Kerrigan (SC2 Game Unit), Kerrigan (Coop-Mode Game Unit), etc., articles (i.e. Marines)? --Falconeye (talk) 05:59, December 8, 2015 (UTC)

While I disagree with splitting the lore up, I'm in favor of splitting the unit info off. We do so for normal units like the Marine, Zealot, Zergling, why not for characters too, especially when they appear in multiple titles with different abilities? DrakeyC (talk) 06:10, December 8, 2015 (UTC)
Same reasons on the Artanis page - lore articles shouldn't be split up as the information doesn't exist in isolation from one another, and a long article is hardly a drawback. For unit separation, there's a bit more of a case, but I don't think every incarnation of Kerrigan has enough info to warrant a split.--Hawki (talk) 07:58, December 8, 2015 (UTC)

Kerrigan Portrait change to QoB Edit

If possible, I think we should change the portrait of Kerrigan to that of the Queen of Blades version, simply to avoid spoilers for people who are mildly curious but does not want the spoilers. We know how spoilers hurts the story. 14:43, November 27, 2016 (UTC)

True, but with pictures it's wiki policy to show the last known iteration of a character. We have a bunch of mentions on the sidebar of her being xel'naga (and probably should mention it in the top blurb too). There's also a bunch of cases where do do the same thing, like with Stukov. We also warn people on the front page about spoilers, and it's a thing of we'd rather be complete then work around spoilers and worry about when's the proper time to not have spoilers and the like.

Request to add information about Korean voice actors. Edit

Korea is a country where StarCraft is popular. So StarCraft II's native language dubbing became a hot topic.

StarCraft's Korean dubbing received many positive reviews from Koreans although South Korea is a country that has a strong dislike for recording foreign films in its own language. And the Korean voice actor also has a strong affinity for the character.

I think this is part of the official information. Therefore, i request to add information. kerrigan korean - So Yeon

SC's popular in lots of countries. Maybe more so in South Korea, but we've already discussed this on the wiki and decided against adding non-English voice actors, as the number of actors would effectively stretch ad infinitum, not to mention that it's kind of redundant when non-English versions of the wiki exist.
It also doesn't help that the So Yeon article is bereft of any sources, but I'll give you time to make a case for the article to be kept if you can verify the info, and make a case for its relevance.--Hawki (talk) 09:40, March 21, 2018 (UTC)

Okay...I got it. Now I realize that StarCraft wiki has already discussed foreign voice acting before. I'm sorry about I couldn't check it.

But I can give you some official information about Soyeon.

Here is "Legacy of the Void Behind the Scenes DVD" and You can also find information about " Soyeon. "

I think with the DVD there's a case to be made for the individuals spotlighted there to be given articles, so that would include So Yeon. That said, for the article, it would still need sourcing for the claims made in it.
It's too late in the evening for me to do any real editing, so it'll give other users a chance to jump in as well.--Hawki (talk) 10:41, March 21, 2018 (UTC)

Gee … I guess I'm talking too late at night. I'm sorry about this, too.

Of course I can provide more source. In Korea, there is a famous YouTube game channel called " Players Cut ". "Players Cut" is so closely related to Blizzard that they also had a face-to-face encounter with Blizzard officer.

Here is Chris Metchen's interview with the "Players Cut".

The " Players Cut " channel also shows many other things to South Korean Starcraft users Among that are information about the Korean voice actor.

As a aside "Players Cut " also makes the voice actors record the script based on the StarCraft novel(Flashpoint)and then had made a radio drama.

Most importantly, these were also posted on the StarCraft II Korean official page.

Personally I'm a bit wary on adding VAs for each country, especially if there's an active wiki for that language still kicking (I'm not sure if there is one for Korean). As Hawki mentioned, my issue is the doors it opens up when it comes to bloating the article.
Having said that, I'm alright with a few spotlighted ones if they're in an English source like the DVD, provided the info is sourced and all that. --Subsourian (talk) 19:07, March 23, 2018 (UTC)
