Having started up in 2006/07 as an Oracle to an independent costumed vigilante in Northern Minessota, the Shieldmaiden took it to the streets herself in late 2007 and has been patroling ever since, despite the semi-nomadic lifestyle she leads.
In 2019 she took upon the name of Shieldmaiden since her alternate name was unpronounceable to non-German speakers at the same time that she overhauled her whole persona after a personal incident that deeply marked her.
From 2016 until 2019, the Shieldmaiden was frequently spotted wearing a knee-lengthened brown hooded archer cape with a grey tunic and knee lengthened boots without any visible logo.
During 2019-2020, she changed her outfit to a grey hooded sleeveless vest and a "Zorro" masque or a grey camouflage bandanna protecting her lower face as a "Grey Man" patrol outfit which became her main patrol outfit.
