Kerrigan, of course, would be Sarah Kerrigan of the Terran Confederacy, who later takes control of the Zerg Swarm as the Queen of Blades. It's all kind of complicated, but that's a good fit for Widowmaker, who's had a complicated life of her own: The wife of a former Overwatch operative who was turned into the ultimate assassin by Talon.
