Dehaka pre-HotS Story. His rise to essence...aeh... power! Start out as a Wormling (aggressive Larva), abandoned by his mother (just called Birth-giver) because that's how things are done on Zerus! Birth-giver becomes a Boss at some point.
If possible add lots of RPG elements, like leveling system over multiple maps (is it possible to save progress like that?)
He is still around right? Maybe he goes back to Zerus to find his old haunts taken over by the hybrids. The hybrids have crazy breeding program going on at zerus....I think a ruined Zerus would be a cool terrain set.
I dont know if its true, but after Amon's death, the hybrids are gone :D
I was thinking about Dehaka too. He left zagara because not enough essence. He will try to get back on zerus so first mission can be how to steal leviathan :D
And then he will gets a signals of big source of essence. What about new leader or something. Guys, ideas please :D
I'd say you could have it set after lotv, with the primals leaving the swarm. I mean think about it, after the epilogue, there are no more enemies for the swarm to fight. Without enemies, the primals would become stir crazy and be looking for action. Eventually I could see some primals wanting to challenge Zagara, afterall it was Kerrigan they followed to fight Amon, not Zagara.
Finally, A bunch of primals would likely leave the swarm looking to cause trouble and collect essence from the terrans and protoss. This of course would pose a huge problem to Zagara and the swarm. If the primals cause too much trouble it is likely the new dominion and the protoss protectorate will blame Zagara and the swarm as a whole. If that happens the swarm would be in full scale war with the whole sector which might not be the best idea for them.
Not sure if Dehaka would leave or stay, but there definitely is a story there to tell.

Mission 06 : queen of blades sent dehaka on a suicide mission as a punishment for stealing her essence. Dehaka must destroy a well guarded moebius hybrid facility while the queen of blades and the swarm set a coalition course to terran capital to kill acrturus mengsk [hots final mission]. Later in the moebius base dehaka saw a tape of kaiser in one of the cell with number 1111 on its door. (Mikro mission).
Mission 07 : queen of blades sent dehaka on another suicide mission. To safe broodmother kelisa and her son radgar from amon's hybrid while the queen enter the xel naga home world [lotv final mission]. (Makro mission).
Mission 08 : without the queen, dehaka see no point to continue to serve the swarm. Dehaka took his primal and search for kaiser to planes y3s b055. After fight his way through many feral hive ,dehaka saw kaiser's new foster family jack and aku and command the primal to never enter planet y3s b055 ever again [hod mission 04]. (Makro and mikro).
Mission 09 : dehaka return to zerus only to find another moebius facility near his home. After a fierce battle dehaka absorb the hybrid essence and finally can regrow his missing limbs (makro and boss battle).
Mission 10 : the primal saw a protos base being summon near a large deposit of minerals and vespene gas. 'Our planet our resource' and dehaka lead the primal againts the purifier cybrosx. Dehaka won but decide to let the protos go under condition no protos shall ever return to zerus.
Epilogue : not long after cybrosx leave zerus he receive transmision from talandar to meet him at eindion [unification of purifier mission 01].
Abathur is a great option too. He isn't a normal Swarm being and seems to have is own intentions and directives for the most part. If you pay attention to his actions it's more like he is submitting to Kerrigan's authority than he is being controlled.
A campaign for him to illustrate his origins would be awesome. Keep in mind that he didn't exist as far back as the Overmind. If I remember correctly he only ever existed in the Swarm on the Leviathan.
