Kerrigan, the Queen of Blades, is an assassin hero from the StarCraft franchise. Kerrigan gains shields by attacking and dealing damage, and can use her wings to swoop up multiple enemies. Until January 4, 2017, Kerrigan could be obtained for free via the Nexus Challenge.
Once a Terran ghost with psionic abilities, Sarah Kerrigan was betrayed by her allies and transformed by the ravenous zerg into the indomitable Queen of Blades. Now freed of The Dark God Amon’s corruption, Kerrigan faces a threat that could destroy the galaxy itself.

Kerrigan was conceived within the first two years of the game's development.
- Blizzard DotA
In 2010, Kerrigan was present in the game as early as its "Blizzard DotA" conception. In this version, she was an individual from the Antiverse. In this reality, she was betrayed by Raynor at New Gettysburg. She willingly embraced infestation by the zerg so that she could battle against the Terran Dominion.
In terms of gameplay, Kerrigan was originally a DPS-type hero. She could use her abilities to kill large numbers of enemy units simultaneously and could surprise enemy heroes with huge bursts of damage. She benefited from intelligence items. She was compared to heroes like Krobelus, Darchow, or Lion from the original DotA.
Kerrigan could originally ride a zergling mount.
