Also, Shikyo is a galaxy-wide famous singer, but hates being so famous but knows they have to be so that they can send people secret messages in the songs and also make it so that the Condesce can’t just have them killed. Shikyo’s stage name is “Shi-Shi” and that’s what all their fans call them on the street.
An accurate depiction of their stage wear.
Also, Shikyo never played Sgrub, because they told Sollux that they would stay behind because Alternia needed a guardian so that the kids of the new generation could go on to play the game and create the new universe. Sollux is really sad about this because he’s one of Shi-Shi’s biggest fans and really wanted Shi-Shi to play with them so that his idol would survive.
However, Shikyo was the only troll besides the Condesce to survive the Vast Glub, and so lived on Alternia alone for a lot of centuries before the carapaces came to Alternia. Shikyo would spend every day thinking about their past and dwelling upon all the lost friends they had now lost because of their mistake in not playing the game.
