Like many of the Queen of Blades' creations, the Broodmother Zagara was birthed of the terrible ash and heat of Char. Unlike most zerg, Broodmothers are capable of complex problem-solving and multi-tasking, and are possessed of the ability to command members of their race with fewer sapient traits. Each Broodmother is an important piece of the greater zerg organism, able to provide large groups of zerg with a nearly "independent" perspective.

Zagara is as vicious and resilient as any in the Swarm, but she is also possessed of extreme cunning. In the years since her emergence, the Broodmother has come to see the volcanic planet of Char as the Swarm's crucible: a brutal environment that pushes the zerg to increasing fitness, sharpening their claws and teeth and forcing their flesh to grow thicker.

Autonomic learning has convinced Zagara of the inferiority of other intelligent species, and the time she has spent uniting disparate feral broods on Char has only strengthened her contempt for the weakness of most races in the galaxy.

Absent a greater intelligence such as the Overmind or the Queen of Blades, Zagara's ambition will surely compel her as it does the lesser races: to gather other zerg around her and, ultimately, to rule the Swarm.
