Dehaka is Melee Warrior Hero from the StarCraft universe. On their home planet of Zerus, all primal zerg know that to survive is to collect essence, consume, and evolve. Among these ruthless predators, there is one in particular who has set himself apart—the creature known as Dehaka. The alpha of Zerus and pack leader among the primal Zerg, Dehaka boasts an unrivaled ability to seek out essence ripe for collection in order to strengthen himself and his pack. His endless quest for new essence has now brought him out of Zerus and into the Nexus!

Background Edit

Though not as physically powerful as the other primal pack leaders, Dehaka's cunning and intelligence is what sets him apart from other primal zerg. While the other primal zerg pack leaders desired only to evolve to perfection, Dehaka correctly observed that this only leaves one vulnerable. Instead, Dehaka believed that survival, not perfection, is the goal of evolution and preferred to be flexible rather than physically powerful.
