Trivia

Shaka Zulu (1787-1828) was a military leader and king of the Zulu people of south-eastern Africa. He was born a Zulu prince, but was rejected by his father. He joined the enemy Mtetwa people and conquered the Zulu in battle.

"Shaka" is a Zulu word meaning "beetle" and this icebreaker's relatively weak strength (which is upgradable) could represent his lowly status (even though he was born a cheif's son) and rise to power. Shaka also introduced the short stabbing spear used by Zulus and revolutionised the stratagy used at the time. He was eventually betrayed by his half-brother in front of his mother. Zulu imagery is used in this card's artwork.

In the Cyberpunk 2020 universe, Shaka was a black runner.
