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.
