Shere Khan is a Lamassu belonging to Ishtar.

City of the Plague God

When Sikander Aziz, Belet Amari, and Daoud create a cure for Nergal's Plague from the Flower of Immortality, he, Sargon, Simba, and Bagheera pull them in Ishtar's Chariot to Manhattan General Hospital. As they fly, Idiptu ambushes them and they crash into an abandoned office building. He and Simba are exhausted and revert back to their cat forms. They stay behind with Daoud and Belet as Sargon, Bagheera, and Sik go on alone after they kill the toad demon.


Sherri Khan resembles a tiger with feathered wings.


  • Shere Khan is named after the main antagonist of Rudyard Kipling's The Jungle Book and it’s various adaptations. In some Indian dialects, "shere" means "tiger". "Khan" is used as a title, like a chief.
