The Wanderer was a female Shedai Serrataal.

In 2265 on planet Erilon, the Wanderer was awakened from an aeons-long slumber by a Starfleet landing party from the USS Endeavour. She attacked the ship and crew, killing most of the landing party, including Captain Zhao Sheng, with a Shedai Sentinel. She then travelled to planet Palgrenax via a Conduit and attacked the Klingon colony there, eventually destroying the planet. (VAN novel: Summon the Thunder)

In 2266, the Wanderer returned to the First World, Jinoteur IV, and awakened other Shedai by calling to them through Conduits. She amplified her call through captured Tholians, whose race had been engineered by the Shedai from an inferior species to act as telepathic communication nodes. Of the Shedai she awakened, only the Apostate resisted her calls. He removed the Jinoteur system from space-time, scattering the Shedai and disconnecting the Conduits, trapping the Shedai on the worlds they fled to. Only the Wanderer remained free, as she was capable of interstellar travel without the Conduits. (VAN novel: Reap the Whirlwind)

She later destroyed Mirdonyae V after Shedai technology was activated there by a Klingon science team. (VAN novel: Open Secrets)

In 2267, the Wanderer discovered a Mirdonyae Artifact on Golmira, but it was taken from her by a Starfleet team from the Endeavour and returned to Starbase 47-Vanguard. She attacked the station and ripped her way through it to the Vault where the crystalline artifact was held. Before she could kill the two scientists studying it, Ming Xiong and Carol Marcus, Xiong activated the device which trapped the Wanderer inside. (VAN novel: Precipice)

In 2268, the Mirdonyae Artifact containing her was transferred to the USS Lovell for study. During an attempt at communicating with her, The Wanderer broke out of her crystal prison, destroyed the Lovell's secondary hull and killed four crew members, including First officer, Commander Araev zh'Rhun, and Starfleet Corps of Engineers officer, Lieutenant Kurt Davis. She fled after being attacked by the USS Sagittarius, and vowed to return with other Shedai to destroy her enemies. (VAN novel: What Judgments Come)
