Shuri is T'Chaka's youngest child, only daughter, and the only biological child of his second wife, Ramonda (Queen Mother). She is the half-sister of T'Challa and the heir to the Wakandan throne. She has dedicated and trained all her life to becoming the Black Panther.
Upon her father's death, her uncle (S'yan), became Black Panther because she, nor T'Challa, was of age to do so. As the years progressed, she swore to become Panther and attempted to enter into the once-a-year Wakandan ritual that allowed anyone of the royal bloodline to become Panther by defeating the ruling Black Panther in hand to hand combat.
The day of ritual, she was forbidden to enter by her. She rebelled against her mother's wishes and managed to sneak into ritual, but by the time she was able to make her way to the ring, a masked fighter had already defeated S'yan. When the victor removed his mask, it was revealed to be none other than her older brother, T'Challa.
When a dutch scientist (Klaw) and his mercenaries attacked Wakanda, Shuri managed to kill the mercenary Igor Stancheck (Radioactive Man). She took her first kill hard, but was comforted by T'Challa's promise to personally train her. He prepared her for the role of Black Panther, in case there were ever a day to which she would be needed to lead Wakanda. It would be years before she would actually get the chance to, but when the opportunity came, she was prepared.
Shuri was created by Ben Dunn in 2002. Her first comic appearance was in Marvel Mangaverse #3. Her first appearance in Marvel's mainstream comics was in Black Panther Vol. 3 issue 2 in (2005) written by Reginald Hudlin.
