Character Bio: Shane Avendale

Name: Shane Avendale
Traits: Genius, Loves the Outdoors, Neurotic, Ambitious, No Sense of Humor
Favorites: Hip Hop, Key Lime Pie, Blue
Aspiration: World Renowned Surgeon

Growing up, Shane was happy. Sure, seeing his father be taken by the Grim Reaper at the tender age of one was rather traumatic, resulting in a completely neurotic and worrisome nature. To be honest though, Shane doesn't know if he really remembers the incident or only thinks he does because of his mother's recounting of the story. He was young after all.

His mother; a subject all of her own. She abandoned him when he was just a teen, leaving him to care for his younger brother, Tanner, all alone. He worried and fretted about her, eventually settling into a routine. It wasn't until he had his own children that the resentment truly set in. He could never understand how she could have left him, especially not when he was holding his own babies' tiny fingers. From the moment he held his daughter, Uvie, Rebecca was never mentioned openly again.

Shortly after she became a teen though, Uvie disappeared. Officially, the Twinbrook Police Department declared her dead though there was no evidence to support the theory. Losing a mother had been bad enough, but a daughter was sheer torture. His neurotic tendencies continued, leaving him to nag his other children in hopes that he would never lose them. How much loss can one person really take before they are driven insane?
