Powers/Abilities: Shreekar was a fierce warrior-leader armed with weapons including a sword. He and his men sometimes rode upon lizard-like steeds.

History: (Epic Illustrated#11/6) - Shreekar was employed by Nightgaunt to lead a band of goblins to lay siege to Skyhook Mountain, home of Lianissa. When Tyndall, Velanna and Mud-Butt washed up nearby, the goblins tried to claim them as food, but the trio escaped their clutches and were able to enter Skyhook Mountain.

(Epic Illustrated#12) - Shreekar's forces were unable to prevent Mud-Butt, Tyndall and Velanna from escaping Skyhook Mountain. As Nightgaunt prepared the completion of his plot, he decided that he no longer needed Shreekar and his men alive, and used the Red Mist of Death to kill all of them.

(Epic Illustrated#13) - Shreekar and his army were raised again on the Land of the Dead by Nightgaunt so that they could serve in his armies in the war of the gods. However, they were confronted by the dragons of Klarn, Tyndall, Velanna, Mud-Butt and Wulfbuck, and Tyndall beheaded Shreekar in combat.
