Akidra Ishal'shanre is the younger sister of Tezraseyna Ishal'shanre whom alongside her elder sister, sought to reclaim her family's ancestral seat of Shan'danil after the dome fell and the Legion entered Suramar.

While what was once a vast and cohesive holding is now isolated into a series of small, fog-shrouded islands, the capital, Shan'danil was found in good condition.

Akidra has proven eager to help care for children evacuated to her family's lands amidst overcrowding at Shal'aran and Shal'elah, and affectionately refers to herself as their aunt.
