Shirley was born to a peasant family in a small village. She wasn't even a year old when a warlord conquered the village, taking Shirley to become a slave as she grew older.
Several years later, Shirley was a child still at the mercy of the warlord. However, she would soon be rescued as the king of a newly emerging empire, Aria, came to conquer the warlord's territory. When her master was defeated, Shirley was approached by the upcoming king, Valentine. Although a conqueror, he had a big heart and sought to take over land to bring peace to it. He was surprised at the ordeal Shirley was able to survive and decided to adopt her as his daughter. Starting as a slave, Shirley would now become the princess of what was soon to be one of the world's great empires.
Now at the age of twelve, Shirley lived a happy life with her now father, King Valentine. This was until a collection of Valentine's decided to lay a plan, a plan to over throw him in a coup d'etat. Before finally being struck down, he was able to help Shirley escape and told her to run from their land. Now orphaned and alone again, Shirley would have to toughen up to survive.
At age 18, Shirley found herself in Mirage and turned into quite the treasure hunter, using nothing but her street smarts to find rumors and secrets about were treasures may be hidden, this was how she survived. She heard of the legendary pirate Midas Touch Topaz's gun was hidden in a mysterious cavern. She searched and found it, though it was difficult. She powered through every trap put in her way and found the gun. When she touched it, the gun sent a long lasting pain throughout her body, causing her to pass out. She saw Topaz in her dream, telling her she had been cursed by him, she was told of the abilities she now possessed and that there was a timer of 10 years to break the curse or she would die. She accepted her fate and decided to live her life to the fullest adventuring around the world.
She had sold every treasure she had found to afford a ship, but just as she was about to leave, someone bumped into her. Lucian Mirage, runaway prince of The Mirage Kingdom, who's identity was hidden, begged her to take him along. Although initially refusing, she realized she could use someone to do the dirty work on the ship, so she agreed. They shipped off, and so the adventures of The Mirage Raiders and Captain Cannonball Shirley began.
Shirley is very forward, not really having a filter between her head and her mouth. She's very passionate about being a good captain, and enjoys fighting by the side of her crewmates, she can still find enjoyment in a one on one fight though. She's not afraid to knock some sense into one of her friends if they're acting stupid.
