Shane Collins is one of the Glass House residents and is a Morganville native. He is hotheaded with a penchant for getting in trouble, often by his own doing. Regardless, he is very protective, a quality which extends especially to Claire, Michael, and Eve. He has a fierce hatred for vampires which causes strife especially between him and Michael, but has slowly started to accept that not all vampires are bad, like Michael. He initially returned to Morganville on a mission from his father to find out ways to kill the vampires. He despises Monica Morrell because he believes she killed his sister, Alyssa, in a house fire (even though it hasn't been proven... no one doubts). Soon after the fire, Shane and his parents left Morganville, hoping to escape the reminder of Alyssa's death. Shane's family quickly began to fall apart. His father's alcoholism worsened, causing him to become abusive, and his mother's memory block began to fail, allowing her to remember Morganville and the vampires. It is heavily implied that she was killed by vampires at Amelie's bidding, though the death was made to look like a suicide. Shane and his father believe that the vampires killed her for remembering Morganville, leading them on a vengeful path to destroy the vampires. Shane eventually rejects his father's violent agenda, furthering the rift between them. Shane frequently struggles with his anger and has been known to cave in to his urges toward fighting and violence, which becomes especially problematic in Bite Club, although since then it appears that he is genuinely trying to change his behavior. He is described as very tall with a lot of muscle. He is very good looking and has brown eyes and hair.
