Shannon is a recurring character and survivor in The Last Ones. She makes her first appearance as a newcomer to Victoria, the housing complex.
Details about Shannon's early life before the apocalypse are completely unknown, but she may have lived and went to school in Summerlyn City.
Sometime after the undead outbreak, Shannon eventually joined a group of survivors consisting of Bernadette, Jasmin, Luke, Daniel and quite possibly some other unnamed people who didn't make it. Eventually, the group were rescued by Derrick, who picked them up in a bus he affectionately nicknamed Brenda. The bus eventually broke down and the group spent several weeks living inside of it.
Shannon's group eventually stumble upon a housing complex surrounded by walls. They ask one of the guards, Jenson, if they can join. They agree to hand all over weapons and are welcomed to the community by the leader, Alexis Norton. She praises the group for agreeing to hand over their weapons but also insists that they undergo private individual strip-searches by Richard Coleman, the resident doctor, in order to ensure none of them have been bit. The new arrivals seem taken aback by this, but when Alexis explains her reasoning (the death of Victoria Franklin at the hands of someone who had been bitten in secret) they agree to it.
Upon passing the searches, Coleman settles them into a house and tells them he's sure they'll be comfortable. Coleman then leaves. Derrick tells Bernadette she treated him harshly, but she remains wary as she doesn't yet know the people they're around. Shannon says that everybody seems nice which Bernadette concurs with but she tells her they have to be careful anyway. Jasmin agrees and points out they haven't survived this long by trusting strangers.
Shannon and the rest of her group join the other survivors in the complex as they gather for Alexis to make a speech.
Shannon appears briefly in the background alongside Daniel as they are pushed by Luke and Bernadette on the swings as Alexis looks out over her complex.
The following night, Bernadette takes Shannon and Daniel away from the feast and takes them inside as Derrick stages an unsuccessful coup to strip leadership from Alexis. The attempt costs Derrick his life.
The following morning, Bernadette breaks the news of Derrick's death to Daniel and Shannon, including the detail that he was shot, much to Luke's disapproval. She then explains that Derrick was being bad and that Alexis was left with no choice but to kill him. When Daniel complains that he no longer wants to eat his breakfast, Bernadette talks him round, which seems to irritate Luke.
Sometime later, Bernadette and Luke watch as Daniel and Shannon play without a care in the world. Luke worries they're growing cold, but Bernadette points out they're just growing used to losing people.
Bernadette yells at Shannon and Daniel in this episode in an attempt to fool Alexis, who is in the house, that she had not just been upstairs eavesdropping on a conversation between her and Lydia-Jean Norton. Once Alexis is gone, Bernadette brushes off the questions from the confused kids and tells them to read their books.
Having returned from a run, Luke tells Shannon and Daniel off for disobeying him and not remaining upstairs and out of the way. They ask where Bernadette is, but Luke tells them to go back up with Jasmin.
When zombies get into Victoria, Luke gathers Shannon and Daniel and they prepare to leave. Bernadette convinces to persuade him to stay but he refuses to listen. Bernadette then lies and says she saw the bodies of Charlotte, Bobby, and Lydia-Jean outside, as the dead got them. Luke is devastated. She then says the undead are making their way to the houses so they need to hide upstairs. An upset Luke only listens when Daniel begs him to come up.
Almost four months later, the Victorians attend a feast to celebrate the birth of Catelyn's baby. Daniel remarks that he is so full. Shannon teases him and says he ate so much.
When Blaine and Alexis discover Bernadette is rallying residents to participate in an escape attempt, Alexis tells Blaine they need to intimidate her into submission. She orders him to kidnap Jasmin and drop her outside the city and threaten her to never come back. Blaine goes into their house and makes the mistake of thinking Shannon is Jasmin. He follows Alexis's orders, but refuses to leave her out in the open so he takes her to within walking distance of Midway and tells her to go there. She is confused and scared but he assures her she will be all right. He walks away and leaves her.
For some unknown reason, Shannon failed to make it to Midway.
Some hours after successfully escaping Victoria, Luke, who is driving in a car with Bernadette and Daniel asleep as passengers, discovers Shannon's zombified body walking around. He puts her down.
