The Shifkin were, according to Tarrant, the biggest criminal syndicate in the galaxy, although they prefered to see themselves as an independent trade organisation. Avon contacted them, in the guise of Lazlo Harun, in order to get information which he hoped would assist him in the hunt for Dayna. They used subliminal messages to control him, and to assist two of their number in using advanced technology to masquerade as Laran Revenants and control Orac and Zen in order to gain control of the Liberator. In fact, Avon was only briefly under their control, and he held more than 20 of the Shifkin to ransom for information about Dayna. He remarked that the Shifkin could not afford to lose 20 members.

As they inhabited Larudon, a low gravity world, the Shifkin were physically weak, and relied on their stealth technology and advanced science to protect themselves. This trickery allowed them to build a fearsome reputation, which Avon vowed to destroy. (TCAA: Ghost Ship)
