As Lady Weatherfell, she was the holder of a prosperous grant on Sphinx, but decided that her calling was in the Navy. A battle left traces of scaring on her face and twisted two fingers of her right hand. Shrake transferred to the Royal Manticoran Naval Academy on Saganami Island, where, in addition to her administrative duties, she taught some of the toughest courses in fusion engineering.
Holding the rank of Commander, she served as the Fourth Form dean at the Academy. After hearing that he was to serve his Midshipman cruise aboard the superdreadnought HMS Saint Elmo, Crown Prince Michael came to see her and informed her that he did not want the Navy to shield him from danger. He requested a more common Fourth Form assignment, like anti-piracy duty in the Silesian Confederacy. Commander Shrake promised him to take the matter under consideration. (HHA4.1: PL)
