Before the Time of Man
Before humans came to be, Shiklah and her family ruled over the monster world. Vampires sought to overthrow them so they started a war that lasted over a century, which also saw the coming of man. After their family was overwhelmed and their kingdom had fallen, Shiklah's father was distraught over the seeming deaths of his sons and decided to seal her away in a coffin until the war ran its course, or until she was to be wed.
Awaken and The Modern Day
Deadpool was hired by Dracula to bring Shiklah to him so he could marry her, in order to take over her old lands and unite the monster world under his rule and end a long feud. After traveling to the Arabian Peninsula, Deadpool timely rescued Shiklah (who was in a coffin) before a faction of teleporting vampires managed to destroy it. Deadpool brought the coffin to Greece and got into a fight with the Minotaur, where the coffin shattered and Shiklah was awaken along with her pet, Bug.
Shiklah repaid for Deadpool's service by attempting to absorb his life force by kissing him, but failed due to Deadpool's healing factor. Shiklah then followed Deadpool out of Greece by hopping a train to Paris, and they were intercepted by Blade who was trying to convince Deadpool that Shiklah was a monster and Deadpool should give her up. They fought, and Shiklah (in her monster form) helped Deadpool to defeat Blade, as they started to grew close together.
After Deadpool arranged transportation by calling his friend Bob, the pair decided to see Paris and visited the Catacombs. After Shiklah saved Deadpool from being possessed by a templar ghost, she admitted having feelings for him. Deadpool pushed away her advances due to his worry that things would turn disastrous just like all of his past relationships.
After leaving the Catacombs, the pair was captured by Hydra, who wanted to exploit Shiklah's power. They soon escaped the frying pan but into the fire as the Hydra vessel was intercepted by A.I.M.. Shiklah proved herself by fighting and defeating the A.I.M. agents and a large robot, but she was captured by M.O.D.O.K.. Deadpool then defeated M.O.D.O.K. and saved Shiklah from being abducted by A.I.M.
There, Shiklah showed a compassionate, loving side by asking Deadpool to arrange for proper care for a wounded Bob, whose legs were broken during the escape. As Deadpool accepts, they're stuck in England, where a mind-controlled Werewolf by Night interrupts again, to her chagrin, a tender moment between them.
Eventually, Shiklah managed to get some measure of intimacy with Deadpool, as they take hostage a couple in a cruise ship to Manhattan: however she got heartbroken upon finding that Dracula, fed with her brothers antics and willing to secure her full inheritance for himself, had them decapitated.
She flatly refused Deadpool original plan to hide her, wishing to help her still living subjects, forcing Deadpool to enact his second plan: they married, thus making Deadpool her prince consort and foiling Dracula's plan.
While Deadpool brought the fight against Dracula's minions in Manhattan, Shiklah invaded the "Monster Metropolis" in the underground to free the succubi and confront directly Dracula: however, Dracula used Medusa's head to turn her into a living, but immobile, stone statue. Deadpool rushed to her help, defeating Dracula and freeing her from the curse by exchanging her freedom with Frankenstein Monster's body for the disembodied Medusa.
Despite being already married, Shiklah asked Deadpool for a public redo of her marriage, no more clandestine but open to all their friends, from both sides. Despite their initial mistrust for Deadpool, the whole superhero community attended, with a freshly resurrected Nightcrawler acting as the attending priest: Shiklah's enthusiasm and loving nature literally won them over, with even Thor (usually wary and mistrustful towards Deadpool) coming to stop a pouring rain and give his respect to the bride.
Shiklah proved to be an affectionate, loving but somewhat naive young wife, taking over some of Deadpool's more innocent traits and antics, such as becoming a TV shows and movie addict, and trusting blindly whatever Deadpool says or does in his moment of self-aggrandizing: for example, when Deadpool tells her he'd really like to leave the Thunderbolts and spend more time with her, but he believes Elektra has a crush for him and she'd be heartbroken to see him go, Shiklah simply praises his good heart, but admonishes gently him to let her go, making her finally able to get over him and find herself a decent man.
