Shiva is an animal character first introduced in Issue 108 of Image Comics' The Walking Dead. She is the pet tiger of Ezekiel, who lived with him in The Kingdom until her death in Issue 118.
It is known that Shiva was born in captivity, Ezekiel stating that he knew her since she was born. She presumably had a normal life as a zoo tiger. It was explained in Issue 110 that Ezekiel had saved Shiva's life by neglecting to report her attacking him, eventually leading to a bond with her that continued into the outbreak.
Eventually Ezekiel founded The Kingdom and Shiva became his pet, sitting at his side while he sits on his throne, Ezekiel keeps Shiva on a chain. Shiva sleeps in a cage inside Ezekiel's room.
Shiva is later seen aiding Ezekiel in battle against The Saviors. It is due to her and Paul "Jesus" Monroe that The Saviors retreated from Alexandria Safe-Zone.
Along with Ezekiel, she sleeps in Michonne's house. Specifically the bathroom. In the morning, Ezekiel mentions that Shiva defecated in the bathtub. Later, after the battle of the Sanctuary, Shiva is seen with Ezekiel and Michonne, eating a dead zombie. Ezekiel tells Michonne that Shiva is able to eat zombies without getting sick.
In the aftermath of a failed attack against a Savior's outpost, Shiva defends Ezekiel from a herd of zombies, sacrificing herself and being devoured to save her owner.
- Herself (Caused; Sacrifice)
- Ezekiel (Indirectly Caused)
When Ezekiel is cornered by a large group of zombies, Shiva comes to his rescue, and while Ezekiel runs away, He turns around to witness Shiva being devoured by the horde, saving her master's life.
This list shows the victims Shiva has killed:
- At least 4 unnamed Saviors
