Character Bio

Shane McCutcheon photo
Shane is rumored to have slept with a little over 960 women in her lifetime, dating back to the tender age of just 14 years old. She doesn't have a particular 'type' and finds something beautiful about every woman she's been with, no matter how strange her choice of partners might seem to others. Shane's friend Clive made mention that she gave hand-jobs to men for six months while living on the streets in Santa Monica, CA and could easily have become rich, had she only been willing to do more, but Shane always refused. The number of men she serviced as a prostitute, it is believed, make up a good part of the number of people she claims to have slept with in her lifetime.

The earliest memory Shane has spoken of is of giving a toy from her Sunshine Meal to a pretty little girl named Tiffany Gardner, though Shane never mentions how old she or Tiffany were at the time, though in the flashback it appears that Shane is about seven or eight years old. When meeting Carmen's family Shane made mention she is originally from Austin, Texas.

Strengths: Highly observant and sensitive to other people's feelings and needs; a very attentive listener and peacemaker. Her willingness to try at love time and again.
