Shrike is a Stalker who was introduced in Mortal Engines. He was Hester's guardian after her mother was murdered.

He was "killed" (deactivated) after being attacked multiple times by the Anti-Traction League and Tom Natsworthy on Airhaven.

He was portrayed by American actor Stephen Lang (though the actor is unrecognizable under many layers of costume, makeup, and visual effects).

Description[]

Shrike is a metallic being who towers above most humans. His metallic hands and feet are flexible and his green eyes give him a menacing look.

History[]

Mortal Engines[]

Shrike was indirectly mentioned when Twix told Valentine that Sharkmoor Prison recently captured a Stalker whose prey is the same as the old man's - Hester Shaw.

Relationships[]

Hester Shaw[]

Shrike raised Hester after her mother was murdered by Valentine. They traveled the Traction Era in their little corner of the world before Hester ran off to assassinate Valentine.
