Strategy and Role[edit]

Lore[edit]

On Zerus, the zerg pack leader Dehaka was a constantly evolving apex predator. His drive to slay the strongest prey and consume their Essence has now led him to the Nexus, where Dehaka stalks his opponents across the battlefield. Able to regenerate through massive damage and swiftly move into and out of combat, Dehaka uses the primal zerg’s mutability to deadly effect.
