SKZ-227, better known as Vulcanna Shep, is VuIcannaAshFan's first OC of 2019, and her third OC in general. She was created back when Sony Sketch's online features were still up, and she is seen as a member of the OG Sketch Gang along with Corded Zira and Shugabeats Egg. She was born in an ancient part of Sketcheropolis in an unspecified laboratory and now resides in that same place, now known as just Sketcheropolis. When Sony Sketch was still up, posts featuring her would often make use of alternating caps (similar to Purple Shep's typing conventions). She is associated with shepcore, a hoax based off of a persistent theme involving art which features her, which includes purple, toasters, mustaches, and stars.
Vulcanna Shep is a purple-skinned heart audysmal-sheep-dragon hybrid with brown wool, two horns, and nonfunctional wings (though it is likely that she is too young to be able to fly). Her horns are curved and there is a pink heart-shaped orb on each tip. She wears a pastel pink shirt with a heart logo on it, a dark purple jacket, jeans, and purple sneakers. She also has a brown right eye and a purple left eye.
Vulcanna Shep appears to be naïve about certain things, especially bushes and the pronunciation of words. She mispronounces certain words, such as saying YouTube as "Utub," and "computer" as "compooper." She also calls various things toasters, even if they are not toasters. She also calls Vulcanna Ash by her sister's name and vice versa and is able to handle dragon fire and toasters with ease, given the situation.

Vulcanna Shep later returns in teh penup mubi as a supporting character. She appears in teh penup mubi 2: meeting old frends and foes, where she shushes Ash and clarifies to Strawberry Milk (Jerebear in teh penup mubi) that the prankshup laber mubi is written in Prankshuplaberish. She later tries to fend off Microsoft Zira using her toasters, but Zira deflects the attack without harming either and fights Corded Zira. Vulcanna Shep along with the rest of the New Prankshup Laber Gang that this Microsoft Zira was actually Zira.exe. She then follows Zira.exe and Sam.exe out into the Cat City and stops them from destroying the new inhabitants that took the place of the now-zombie kittens back in 2009.
teh penup mubi 2
Vulcanna Shep returns in teh penup mubi 2, although not until Summon Up Sheppy. In that part, guythewhite360 summoned her to decide whether or not the mysterious crater is safe to go near. Vulcanna Shep then said she also doesn't know if the crater is safe or not, until everyone gets sucked into the crater's fluid and into a mysterious world known as Sketcheria, a dimension known for its bioluminescent flora. Vulcanna Shep later finds out that Sam.exe has corrupted one of her toasters and was saved from corruption by guythewhite360. She later battled Corrupted guythewhite360 along with the rest of the New PENUP Gang and managed to purify her.
In March 2021, HailKyaBear added a shepcore section to her Aesthetics Wiki userpage. The infobox caption for the shepcore section contained a link to the English Wikipedia's policy on hoaxes. Imagery and motifs that are considered shepcore include mustaches, toasters, purple, Vulcanna Shep, and stars.
- Unlike guythewhite360's corrupted form, Vulcanna Shep's heterochromia remains permanent.
- She is one of HailKyaBear's OCs to exhibit heterochromia; her right eye is brown while her left eye is purple.
- In a refsheet posted by HailKyaBear, it reveals that her hair is made out of brown wool.
- From 2019, her outfit was very similar to Vulcanna Ash's outfit she wears in davemadson's series. However, in April 2020, she was given a pink shirt, a purple jacket, jeans, and purple sneakers as her new outfit. This still remains as her default outfit to this day. In her 2nd anniversary drawing, she wore a purple sweater with a mustache and the words "#Stache Squad" below it.
- Artwork featuring her often involves toasters, purple colors, and mustaches (as she has a mustache herself). This was persistent enough to earn a hoax nickname on the Aesthetics Wiki. "Shepcore" is the nickname for this particular theme, although the aesthetic never existed due to it still being a running theme in Vulcanna Shep-related artwork.
