Sarah Kerrigan/Jim Raynor - Works | Archive of Our Own
A big part of the plot of Brood War (and really what makes Kerrigan's character interesting and notable), is that Raynor always holds out on than their relationship, and he is continually disappointed by the fact that no, this part of what makes the core of the story bad, which then manifests in other ways. Thier relationship development might have happen offscreen. Like one of the art in installing screen showing them chilling out, we didnt really. personal information, including your religious or political views, health, racial background, country of origin, sexual identity and/or personal relationships.
And the single-player missions are generally well-designed and fun, anyway. So, people are still going to play it, even if the single-player storyline that frames the missions is awful. But there is definitely something to be learned from looking at how and why the story is so bad. SPOILERS — Beginning at the End The best way to get a sense might just be to watch the end cinematic, which is by far the worst part of the story, bringing together all the mistakes and missteps it has made along the way.

Okay, so what happened here? She is the ascendant ruler of the Zerga species of alien monsters that operate through a hive mind and sweep through the universe destroying civilizations, taking over planets, and subsuming the genetic material of other organisms in a quest for perfection.
She is also the ex-girlfriend of one of the human heroes the guy with the space helmet and the mustache in both videosa space marine named Jim Raynor. Of course, he is totally wrong, there are bigger things going on than their relationship, and he is continually disappointed by the fact that no, this woman does not exist as an erotic object, but is in fact a totally legit badass who is playing him like a fiddle because he is dumb and sexist and keeps underestimating her.
The Starcraft 2 betrayal cinematic really hammers in on the new, retconned, damsel-in-distress Kerrigan that has in Starcraft 2 replaced the one we know and love from Starcraft and Brood War.
Look how helpless she is without the men in her life, despite her being a special-forces soldier with psionic powers and a personal cloaking device!

The Queen of Blades, before her debasement in Starcraft 2. She is, after all, out to kill and dominate humans, and the human soldiers in the game are often, but not exclusively, portrayed as male.
And of course, we on Overthinking It are suspicious of female characters who are merely powerful or capable, without being interesting or fully realized. But then the war happened. And the Terran human race had to band together under the rule of Arcturus Mengsk.
Mengsk betrayed Kerrigan, leaving her to die in a swarm of Zerg, an evil alien race. Following with me so far? Kerrigan goes on a rampage of revenge, doing all she can to destroy her enemies, chief among them, Mengsk.
Her rage burns so hot that she basically kills off any rivals to her own army and then starts unleashing war on anyone in her way. Raynor tries to get through to her, and eventually, does find her. The thing is, despite the way she looks and the things she has done, Raynor still loves her. He loves her with all his heart and Kerrigan even loves him back.
Which makes the last scene of the most recent game so heart breaking. Kerrigan finally, with the help of Raynor, gets her revenge on Mengsk. And just when you think Raynor and Kerrigan can finally settle down with one another, he looks at her and he knows she has to go. At least not now, not the way the world is now. And he knows he has to let her go.
And they both know they have to keep fighting so they CAN be together. A whole race of the universe will have to be wiped out first so these two can finally be with one another. That, my friends, is literally Epic.
Raynor and Kerrigan
Kerrigan being overran, Raynor finding Kerrigan, Raynor letting her go. You know the only thing I have to bring up is this simple but powerful exchange: Be still my heart.
Han the hansome rouge and Leia the warrior princess…these two had no business being together at all. But fate, or random events and choices, however you look at the world, brought them together.
And, well, the rest is history. We all know this story, so just watch this and know that I am right on this one: The slowest building relationship out of all of these, these two had to wait and wait and wait until they could not only admit their feelings, but until they would ALLOW themselves to feel these feelings.
But as there was starting to be some light at the end of the tunnel, these two relaxed a little bit and started to grow into one another.
Raynor and Kerrigan
They even talked about finally finding Earth and building a small cabin together where they could live out their days. When Roslin was diagnosed with a terminal form of cancer, it was Adama who came down to read to her. These two were so damn heart warming and heart wrenching. It was a beautiful thing to watch unfold on screen. Finally, as Roslin passes away, we see Adama content in life and start work on his cabin he promised her.
