Shane is a moderately social person - while not particularly well versed in such a thing he enjoys hanging out with his friends, although his buttons are very easy to push. Almost anyone has tremendous ease in making him get embarrassed, frustrated, happy, or any of a full range of emotions that come through his face as clear as water.
He's a terrible liar as a result, even more so when it comes to hiding what he feels - at least, if the person isn't too dense, like Alex some of his friends are. As such, he just opts to go where his very impulsive feelings take him unless it goes against his principles, being more of a feeler than a thinker.
He tends to submit to authority very quickly because he doesn't want more trouble than his natural bad luck already gives him as well as not wanting to disappoint his mother. This makes people think he's a coward a lot of the time, when it couldn't be further from the truth. He often steps up to intervene in situations he deems unfair, lacking much of a survival sense in those occasions, and having gotten into physical fights over bullies and petty criminals because of it.
He appreciates the little things in life, such as a good meal and a nice sports game, rather than thinking long term and defining goals for himself. All he wants is to spend a good time on this Earth with his friends and family, and if possible, stop any injustices he may walk into.
Shane is a very tall young man with a muscular build attributed to bodybuilding. Despite being 22 years old, he looks to be considerably older due to a family curse he is presently unaware of.
He has short black hair and dark brown eyes, and keeps a neatly trimmed strip of beard from the bottom of his lip to the end of his chin. It's very rare when he's seen without his trademark blazer. Under it rest quite a few tattoos, as he's grown a bit of an obsession with ink during college.
He's been mistaken for a criminal based on his appearance before, having ended up in the local police station one too many times for questioning.
Shane Alexander Robbins was conceived in a one night stand between the owner of a bar and a distraught wizard, the latter being part of a prominent family known for having a bad luck curse. This bad luck manifested in the form of an accidentally punctured condom, and Shane's mother was left with a child to raise, along with no name for the baby boy's father.
He grew up in the upstairs floor of the bar, which doubled as lodgings for the duo. They were semi-comfortable with the earnings of the bar, but it wasn't always stable. Shane developed most of his musical talents with instruments that he found in pawn shops rather than going to a music store and purchase something new because of these occasional financial difficulties.
Eventually, as the boy started to show magic abilities, he was sent to Whitlam Bilby - and later, Tallygarunga. It hurt a great deal to be away from his mother, but he was there that he befriended his roommate for the duration of his entire stay, formed a tight friends group, and engaged in sports activities he was never allowed to before - he wound up taking on Taekwondo, but after displaying promise, he had to retire several years later due to injuries.
A void was left in his life as his Tallygarunga career came to an end - while he wasn't particularly fond of magic, he missed hanging out with friends all the time and was unable to practice his sport of choice competitively anymore. In an odd stroke of luck, given his curse, all his close friends relocated to Melbourne to pursue further studies and careers; his best friend being one of them, whom then pushed him into bodybuilding.
Now, as his studies near their end, he is unsure of whether he wants to take up his mother's mantle in the bar or if he wants to pursue music. Hopefully he can make a decision soon.
