The Zerg are a highly adaptive species originating from the ancient planet Zerus. While originally independent in nature, the primal Zerg were corrupted by Amon, who bound them all to a hive mind. The single, overriding will brought the Zerg together as a species, causing the race to become a galactic force. The Zerg are able to assimilate natural elements and nature fauna with the help of their Brood Leaders, and are able to grow new reactive adaptations to fit their situation. While potent alone, the swarm is truly a force to be reckoned with. They are able to coordinate attacks at superhuman levels, instantly knowing the others' thoughts and target. Able to destroy entire species in hours, the Zerg have proven to be the biggest threat to The Protoss, destroying their homeworld of Aiur and plunging the galaxy into a great war between species. The Zerg are a race of ambition and conquest, and will not be sated until they absorb all organic essence into their swarm and rule the galaxy.
