Shayne first appears in Prison Breaks giving Luke a massage in his bedroom, until Jenna and Tamara walk in on them. Both girls at first thought Shayne was having an affair with Luke until she revealed her sexuality. Later on, while Luke and Jenna were locked upstairs at the roof, Tamara stayed in Luke's room with Shayne, where both did each others nails. Shayne attempts to kiss Tamara, who is hesitant and Shayne apologizes, but Tamara ends up kissing her and they both spend the night together. In the morning, Jenna and Luke return to his room and are shocked to discover Tamara in bed with Shayne.


Shane seems to be generally well liked and appears to be down-to-earth. She might also be tough because she stood up for Luke and herself when Tamara said that she was going to pull her hair. She is also open about her sexuality.
