She was a girl from the Voroshk clan. She and some other children were sent along with the Black Company as their world was attacked by shadows. Later she is adopted by Croaker and Lady alongside Arkana and falls in love with Tobo.
Shukrat is described as being in her mid-teens and having fair skin, blonde hair, and blue eyes like the rest of the Voroshk. Also like other Voroshk women she is described as being gorgeous and curvaceous. She is the smaller one of the group she was with before joining the Black Company.
Shukrat has been described as being more social than is the Company norm. She has also been described as flirtatious around Tobo. She is also sneaky and manipulative when it suits her.
Shukrat is originally from the Voroshk home-world where her clan ruled their world absolutely. She described Arkana and herself as not having good relationships with their fathers. When the Black Company came through the Plain of Glittering Stone and some of the Leaders of the Voroshk accidentally destroyed the Shadowgate to their world via Croakers' trickery unleashing the Killing Shadows she and some of the other children her age including Gromovol, Sedvod, and Magadan, decided to increase their likelihood of survival and leave their world with the Black Company.
When she and the other six of her group met up with the Black Company they were surprised that they would have to give up their Rheitgeistiden and shefsepoke to be allowed along. Having to choose between that, death, or staying in their own imperiled world all but two of her group surrender their gear while the others run off.
Yet to be finished.
