Shastra, like every Eternal, was created by the Celestials one million years ago. 400,000 years later, a civil war erupted between two factions of the Eternals: the side of Kronos, who cherished piece and non-interference, and the side of Uranos, wanting to use their powers to dominate the planet. Shastra joined Uranos' side, but they were defeated by Kronos' forces and banished from the Earth.
When the two dozen exiles landed on the planet Uranus, they conquered the Kree outpost there to make of it their new home. As the Eternal Uranos built a spaceship to return to Earth, Astron refused to follow his ways any longer and, along with three sympathizers, remained on planet Uranus, where they created their own colony.
Shastra accompanied Uranos on his way back to Earth, but their spaceship was destroyed by a Kree fleet investigating the invasion of their outpost, leaving only Shastra, Uranos, and 5 other Eternals alive. The survivors finally decided to abandon their plans for revenge and, instead, created a colony on Saturn's moon of Titan. At some point, however, the Titanians fell to warlike tendencies once more, and, as a result, the colony of Titan was ravaged by yet another civil war, thereby causing the death of all its residents, save for Sui-San, who lived in isolation.
After her death, Shastra was resurrected on Earth, in the Exclusion, where she was mind-wiped alongside the other exiles. After that, they joined Oceanus, who had retired to a vigil of Deviants. Together, they became known as the Oceanic Watch (with the exception of Uranos, who was imprisoned in the Exclusion).
Eternal Physiology: Like all Eternals, Shastra's natural physiology grants her a number of superhuman physical attributes. With most Eternals choosing to specialize in particular powers and attributes, it seems Shastra's specialization is Gravity manipulation, which, among other things, allows her to fly.
