Biography Edit

Background Edit

"Escape from the Underdark" (1x13) Edit

Shayne was one of the guards on duty when Vox Machina returned from the Underdark. She threatened the group from atop the wall with a crossbow as they approached. When they identified themselves, she seemed pleased to see them and shouted for Cordell to open the gates.[3]

When the members of Vox Machina woke the next morning, Shayne and Cordell were just finishing their guard shift, sharing a meal together before leaving.[4]

Upon returning to Greyskull Keep after their trip to Vesrah for Keyleth's Aramente, Vox Machina decided their next destination would be Vasselheim. Knowing of Vasselheim's issues with arcane magic and the potential for Taryon Darrington's automaton, Doty, to cause issues, many of Vox Machina set to crafting a disguise for Doty. While others made their preparation, Taryon Darrington approached Shayne and offered to purchase her hair to be used as a wig for 100 gold pieces. Shayne counter offered, asking for 500 gold, and Taryon was quick to accept.

Shayne headed into Greyskull Keep before returning later with a bald head and the remnants of her hair in hand, Taryon giving her the 500 gold in exchange for the hair.
