Shanna O'Hara or Shanna the She-Devil was the daughter Gerald O'Hara a Diamond miner living and working in Africa. Shanna O’Hara was born in Zaire, Africa, and spent most of her youth playing in the jungles. When she was only six, Gerald O'Hara went to kill a leopard that had gone rogue which used to belong to Patricia O’Hara, her mother. While hunting the animal, Shanna's father accidentally shot and killed her mother. This was the event that started Shanna's lifelong crusade against guns and other firearms. After the incident, Shanna moved to the United States of America to live with some relatives. Shanna studied to be a Vet at University and also became an accomplished Olympic athlete, specializing in track and field and competitive swimming.
After University Shanna was offered a zoologist job placement at Central Park Municipal Zoo in New York City. While at the Zoo Shanna raised a female leopard she named Julani. One day another traumatic incident occurred when Julani was shot and killed by a zoo guard. The next day the Zoo’s Director asked Shanna to take Julani's cubs, Ina and Biri to the Dahomey Reserve in Africa. Shanna decided to stay with the animals and, wearing Julani's pelt as an honor, became Shanna, the She-Devil. The animals were tragically killed when the sorcerer Raga-Shah transferred their life forces into the blood beast Ghamola that Shanna was forced to destroy.
Shanna was kidnapped by the red sorcerer Malgato, to be used as a human sacrifice alongside Ka-Zar. She eventually fell in love with Ka-Zar and remained in the Savage Land with him.
In one of Sauron's attacks to the Savage Land, Shanna was killed. Using the life blood of a Man-Thing native to the Savage Land, a native tribe resurrected Shanna. This left Shanna connected to the very life force of the Savage Land, giving her supernatural power.
