The Nerazim was a known murder and criminal of [[protoss]] society, who killed other [[protoss]] and reveled in their deaths. She was considered a heretic of some sort among the greater protoss society. Some time before the [[End War]], she was imprisoned aboard a transport vessel; the only passenger of the vessel. However, the records of what happened to her jailers cut off, and the ship went derelict.<ref name="SCS:Issue3">Houser, Jody (w), Guzmán,Gabriel (p, i).

The scavengers destroyed the corpses, but soon the stress caused the scavengers to turn in on themselves. Though [[Caleb]] wanted to vent the protoss, Theban demanded they hunt it down. The Nerazim slaughtered them one by one, leaving only [[Kyra]] and Caleb. She appeared before them, telling the two that she needed someone to pilot the liberator. Kyra said it should be her that lived and not him, and the Nerazim agreed, giving her a gun and telling her to kill him. As she prepared to, the Nerazim stabbed her in the back.

She told Caleb that he was the stronger of the two, but that his pain was malleable, and ergo, she could use him.

The Nerazim glimpsed in the mind of those she killed a [[Umojan Protectorate|Umojan]] Job, and that a secret lab was hidden on the Umojan world of [[Aeneas (planet)|Aeneas]]. She ordered Caleb to infiltrate the world, and he took a job as a munitions worker on the nearby [[Spearpoint Base]]. She waited as he attempted to locate the lab.

The Nerazim glimpsed in the mind of those she killed, revealing the existance of a "[[Umojan Protectorate|Umojan]] job," and that a secret lab was hidden on the Umojan world of [[Aeneas (planet)|Aeneas]]. She ordered Caleb to infiltrate the world, and he took a job as a munitions worker on the nearby [[Spearpoint Base]]. She waited as he attempted to locate the lab.
 
   
One night, Caleb crept out of the base, using a device he created to disable the laser grid. He told her that he was trying to blend in as to not arouse suspicion. Though he expected her to be angry, she accepted this. When she saw the device he used to disable the laser grid, he took it from him and shoved him through the open laser gate, telling him that he would not escape, and that he would stay inside the base.

Several days later, the Nerazim brutally murdered one of the factory workers named [[Russell]], tearing out his chest and leaving his body for all to see.<ref name="SCS:Issue1">Houser, Jody (w), Guzmán,Gabriel (p, i).

After ten days with no results from Caleb, the prisoner killed the shift manager of Caleb's group [[Jace (Survivors)|Jace]] by impaling him through the chest with her claws, and threw him on Caleb's bed. She forced Caleb to say that he belonged to her, and gave him five more days to find the Umojan lab.<ref name="SCSur:Issue2">Houser, Jody (w), Guzmán,Gabriel (p, i).

However, while in the outskirts, it was ambushed by three [[shadowguard]], who were tipped off by Caleb. They tossed a grenade at her, breaking her shield and injuring her, but the Nerazim was able to slaughter the three of them. Enraged, she stormed the facility, appearing before Caleb and killing [[George (Survivors)|George]]. Caleb begged her not to kill [[Frank]], but after he reacted with hostility she slaughtered him too. The Nerazim asked if he tipped off the shadowguard, to which he said he had not talked to anyone (a technical truth) which the Nerazim was fooled by. He then told her he had found the lab she sought near the base's school farm. To create a distraction Caleb doused the bodies in flammable liquid and created a short in the factory's circuitry.

The Nerazim slaughtered her way through the lab, soon having Caleb catch up with her, having followed the trail of bodies she'd left behind. Caleb noted they would now know it was her, which could complicate things, and he opened the sealed door to the lab proper. As the two wandered in, they were ambushed by a Umojan scientist, Dr [[Robertson]], wielding an experimental [[anti-protoss weapon]].<ref name="SCSur:Issue3">Houser, Jody (w), Guzmán,Gabriel (p, i).

As the doctor pointed her weapon at them, Caleb reached for a [[laser pistol]], and shot her in the chest. While he was in shock for committing murder, the Nerazim told him he was using his instincts to protect his master. She then took the weapon, saying she would use it against her enemies. The Nerazim then had Caleb contact the [[Tal'darim]], in order to have them bring the [[Death Fleet]] destroy Spearpoint Base. However, soon guards entered, and the Nerazim was forced to dispatch them.
 
 
After the lab was cleared, the Nerazim met with Caleb outside of a shuttle, and she took both the weapon and the power source with her as they escaped the planet as the Death Fleet bombarded the Umojan defenses. The Nerazim stated that she would now undo her enemies, and Caleb doubted she could do so with just one gun. She responded that she had one gun, one power source, and many secrets, but that he would bring her enemy's destruction.

Unwilling to be a part of her plans, Caleb shot the navigation panel of their ship, over and over. The Nerazim sliced off his arm, but he only laughed as the ship careened out of control into a nearby Tal'darim [[Tal'darim mothership|mothership]]. The shuttle erupted in an explosion, destroying both ships and vaporizing both Caleb and the Nerazim.<ref name="SCSur:Issue4">Houser, Jody (w), Guzmán,Gabriel (p, i).

The imprisoned Nerazim is a brutal and ruthless killer. She has a hatred toward "little things," and revels in their bloodshed and pain. She is a capable hunter, seeing those she murders as prey. Yet to gain power she is capable of greater planning and patience.
