Protecting T'Challa

In 2016, Xoliswa was present alongside Okoye guarding T'Challa when he and Nakia were walking around the Golden City after he was crowned the new king of Wakanda.[1]

Battle of Mount Bashenga

During the Battle of Mount Bashenga, Xoliswa, Okoye, and two other Dora Milaje fought Erik Killmonger while the rest of the Dora Milaje went to assist T'Challa by fighting the Border Tribe, who were, under W'Kabi's orders, fighting on the side of Killmonger.

During the battle, Killmonger was able to defeat Xoliswa and take her hostage, holding his sword at her throat while threatening the others. Then, Killmonger decided to slit her throat and launch himself at the other Dora Milaje. Her final words were Wakanda Forever.[1]
