Factions Wakanda



The Princess of Wakanda is known among her people for being brilliant but politically inexperienced and a little too enthralled with the world outside their borders. Outside Wakanda, she is not very well known except as the sister of the king of that strange African nation that apprently has a lot of mineral wealth or something.


Shuri of Wakanda is the daughter of T'Chaka and Ramonda, his second wife. She is the younger sister of T'Challa, Wakanda's king, and has been raised with very similar expectations. Though she loves and dotes on her brother, she believes she would make a better ruler: he loves playing the hero rather than taking on the full weight of kingship. Nevertheless, she believes him the finest ruler Wakanda could have (apart from herself, naturally) and supports him in all things.

Given her greater freedom than her brotheras a princess, her life was somewhat set out for her, but she was able to make some important choicesshe has specialized in one of the two great focuses of Wakanda. Her focus is science and technology: with study primarily in Wakanda's own academies, she has channeled her amazing intelligence in the last few years to push already-advanced Wakandan technology forward by decades.

At the same time, her brother has begun making strides toward greater openness between Wakanda and the rest of the world. Her time in the US will consist primarily of working with these outreach programs to create opportunities for marginalized populations.

Character Details

Too much. Always too much. She roasts her brother, races cars in VR, sasses most every authority figure, and generally works hard to live her life on her own terms despite her responsibilities to brother and country. She is the most modern member of her family, and where her brother appears taciturn despite possessing great depth of emotion, Shuri shows great volume of emotion to match her brilliance and depth of character. She is thoroughly devoted to Wakanda and its people, but she also has a fascination with the outside world sufficient that she supports greater openness with it. Still, she is intensely critical of all flaws: of the outside world, of her beloved brother, and especially — though relatively quietly — of herself.
