Shane's Gang



Shane is a small-time drug lord working out of the docks of Seattle and embroiled in a losing war against the city's topmost gang the Akurans. After Brent disappears, he helps Fetch finding him. Afterwards, he shows his true colors by kidnapping Brent to force Fetch to continue working for him.

  • A Father to His Men: Despite everything else, he makes it quite clear that he cares about the men that work under him. He even seems more upset about Fetch killing his men than destroying his product. However, he's not above executing minions that betray him such as Jenny.
  • Abhorrent Admirer: Is a predatory one to Fetch, with his first meeting involving him lustfully leering at her and many of his later conversations involve suggestive flirting towards her much to her intense disgust. This behavior stops after Shane decides Fetch is a threat to his operations.
  • Big Bad: Of the First Light DLC.
  • Big Bad Wannabe: While he is the main villain of First Light, compared to the others found he's a small fry whose only a major threat because of Fetch. When Augustine captures him and allows Fetch to execute him, its obvious that he's bitten much more than he can chew.
  • Boisterous Weakling: He talks about his ambitious plans and acts like he's a big shot. However, he's just a normal human being who doesn't dirty his own hands and get easily dealt with after Augustine captures him and has Fetch execute him.
  • Bullying a Dragon: Shane's manipulations and mistreatment of Fetch backfires on him hard, as he's just a regular human being while Fetch is a superpower Conduit, which leads to Fetch killing him.
  • Catchphrase: "Scout's honor"
  • Contrasting Sequel Antagonist: He differs from past main antagonists in that he's just a regular human being instead of a conduit. He is also not a Well-Intentioned Extremist, having absolutely no goal other than money and power.
  • The Corrupter: Tries to repeatedly get Fetch to admit Evil Feels Good.
  • Cruel and Unusual Death: Fetch shoots clear through him three times before using her neon power to boil him from the inside out and disintegrating him.
  • Deep South: He hails from Texas and like Hank, he speaks with a heavy accent.
  • Defiant to the End: In his final moments, he still taunts Fetch even when she's killing him.
  • Didn't Think This Through: His decision to keep Brent held hostage bites him hard, as Fetch eventually realizes that Shane won't actually kill Brent for fear of losing his hold over her. Cue her destroying his entire criminal empire.
  • Dirty Coward: He has always ran away and risk the lives of others whenever his own life is in danger. Ironically, when he's aware that Fetch is going to kill him and there's no where left to run nor anyone to sacrifice, he becomes Defiant to the End.
  • Faux Affably Evil: He presents himself as a helpful if somewhat sleazy individual whose goals align with Fetch, but it soon becomes clear that he's not completely honest.
  • Hate Sink: Not only does Shane have no redeeming qualities, but he also doesn't even have any powers that made the other villains so formidable. With all that and everything he puts Fetch through, it becomes clear that Shane was never meant to be liked.
  • Humans Are the Real Monsters: Despite being just a regular human, he's arguably one of the most despicable villains in the franchise. Aside from being highly racist towards Conduits he emotionally abuses one into doing his bidding by holding her brother hostage, and later attempts to kill them both despite already doing Shane's bidding. That's not even getting to the part where he injects her with drugs that causes her to accidentally kill her own brother. In short, he's the perfect example of the kind of humans Augustine wants to keep the Conduits safe from.
  • Humiliation Conga: Lets just say it all goes downhill for Shane after she pushes Fetch a bit too far. To summarize his entire criminal empire is destroyed, gets arrested by the DUP despite not being a conduit, is given to by Fetch to personally execute, and tries to escape Fetch running in the cold mountains only for Fetch to catch up to him and give him a slow and excruciating death. Suffice to say he deserves every single moment of it.
  • I Have Your Wife: After Fetch deals with the Akurans and rescues Brent, Shane holds him hostage so that she can continue to help him be the kingpin of Seattle.
  • Ink-Suit Actor: Like Reggie, Shane resembles Travis Willingham, though without Reggie's Native American features, so Shane is closer to how Willingham actually looks.
  • Karmic Death: He's eventually captured by Augustine and is personally executed by Fetch.
  • Mysterious Backer: He presents himself as Brent's boss and helps Fetch for his own reasons. Afterwards, he decides that he likes having a powerful Conduit on his side.
  • Manipulative Bastard: Everything he did to keep Fetch working for him. Threatens Brent's life if she does not work for him. It did work for a time until Fetch snapped.
  • Nice Job Fixing It, Villain: Pissing off Fetch to the point she loses total self control in front of him was not a good idea.
  • No Body Left Behind: Is disintegrated by Fetch after he pushes her too far.
  • Non-Action Big Bad: Isn't shown doing any fighting to fight and prefers not to. Though it's justified in that Shane's just a regular human being and going up against a conduit, like Fetch, would not be a good idea as Fetch would show him.
  • Oh, Crap!: When Fetch snaps and destroy all the drug in his trucks.
  • Pragmatic Villainy: He's willing to cooperate with someone if it's in his best interest, however when it isn't he's going to abandon that someone.
  • Remember the New Guy?: Shane is never mentioned as part of Fetch's backstory in Second Son. He seems to even lampshade this status when he introduces himself
    Shane: (Proudly) I'm Shane. (beat) Shane?
  • Smug Snake: He thinks he's a criminal mastermind, despite his successes only being in part do to Fetch being his enforcer and Fetch easily dismantles Shane's success he gets too cocky and tries to dispose of her.
  • Stupid Evil: After using Fetch to build his criminal empire in Seattle do you think Shane would just hand to her brother back and be done with them right? Nope, he decides that to have his men kill her and tricks her into killing her own brother. Unsurprisingly, this causes Shane to loose everything and Fetch giving him a slow and painful death.
  • You Have Failed Me: He kills his hacker Jenny after finding out she's helping Fetch get Brent behind his back.
