Born and raised in Malkier, Bukama became a soldier like many men in the Borderlands. After the birth of al'Lan Mandragoran and the betrayal of Malkier to the Shadow, he was sent along with nineteen other men to carry the young prince to safety in Shienar. He personally carried the child on his back for the entire trip. He was one of only five bodyguards to survive the journey to Shienar, and spent Lan's youth teaching him the ways of Malkier and of a soldier. He was the last surviving bodyguard by the time of the Aiel War.  


Bukama was created by Robert Jordan for his book series The Wheel of Time, making his first appearance in the prequel, New Spring. He made his first appearance in comics in Wheel of Time: New Spring #1, written by Jordan and Chuck Dixon and illustrated by Mike Miller.
