Shiner was a sworn brother of the Black Company who ranked at least sergeant by the events of She Is the Darkness. He was almost certainly from Taglios.

Shiner – along with Red Rudy, Big Bucket, Spiff, and Kloo – was one of the sergeants and officers Croaker bellowed for after he was informed by Isi and Ochiba that their important captive, the wizard Smoke, had been assassinated.

Shiner is not mentioned again in the Annals and his fate is unspecified. He may have: become one of the Captured; been killed on the glittering plain; or, most likely, remained behind in the Shadowlands to serve Sleepy during the Kiaulune wars.
