Sharku is from a forest similar to the First Realm of Yugure. When she was born, her parents were forced to abandon her due to them not being able to care for her. They believed it would be better for Sharku to live a short life than a long, suffering one. Luckily for the newborn dragolf, a kind wolf named Sirak found her and took her back to his pack. None of the other pack members had ever seen a dragolf before, but they would never leave a pup to die. Thus, Sharku was adopted into the Rippling Waves Pack. She grew up learning how to hunt and fight alongside two other pups; a male named Tek and a female named Lilac. The three soon became inseparable and were usually the root of mischief in the pack. Sharku earned her name when she leapt into a river in pursuit of an elk and took the beast down with a single bite to the neck.
Tragedy hit the pack when Sharku reached four years old. Not only had the alpha male, Jak, fallen deathly ill, but a stronger pack had appeared on the edge of the territory. The rival pack's alphas and a few of the strongest wolves had come straight into Sharku's pack's home and challenged Jak to a fight over dominance. Jak had taken the challenge, ignoring the protests of his packmates. Soon after the fight had begun, the rival alpha had torn out Jak's throat and killed him. He told Sharku and her pack that they could either join or die. As none of the pack were willing to join the ones who had killed their beloved leader, a massive brawl broke out. Despite having the rival wolves outnumbered, Sharku and the others were overpowered. Sharku was the only one to survive. Sharku wandered on her own for twenty long years, searching for another home or family. During her travels, Sharku came across a rather large praying mantis caught in a spider's web. Taking pity on the poor fellow, she freed him. As she went to leave, Sharku realized the mantis was following her. She asked him why, but received only a rough, purring sound instead. Sharku decided she couldn't leave this creature by himself, so she offered him a ride on her back. The mantis did so willingly, settling down whilst still making that odd purring sound. Since then, Sharku has started calling the mantis 'Fluffers' and they have been inseparable. Now residing in the First Realm of Yugure, Sharku and Fluffers find companionship amongst the many Creatures of Yugure.
