Shawn was born and raised in Santa Barbara, CA, where he continues to spend most of his time with his best friend, Gus.
Shawn knows almost everything there is to know about comic books, 80s pop culture, obscure films and video games, and science fiction. Due to this fact, there is a very good chance that if your character is part of a well-known canon OR obscure canon alike, SHAWN WILL LIKELY HAVE SOME KNOWLEDGE OF IT. The muns in charge of both Shawn and Gus are WHOLLY AGAINST CANON-PUNCTURING, and will be taking appropriate action to ensure that your characters stay safe and blissfully unaware of their "nonexistence" in their world. However, due to the sensitive nature of Shawn's character, open communication with both muns is encouraged and appreciated, to ensure that no canon-puncturing takes place, and all muns and pups have happy threading experiences!
Shawn Spencer is from the TV show "Psych," and is the property of Steve Franks, the USA Network et. al. He appears here solely for the purpose of role-playing in milliways_bar, from which no profit whatsoever is being made. I am not James Roday; I simply pretend to be to avoid getting a real job.
[ Extended Bio ]
Born in 1977, Shawn hails from a family of police officers. His parents separated in 1992, and later divorced; his mother, Madeleine (a psychologist), eventually returned and explained that she left to pursue a job opportunity. His father, Henry Spencer, fully expected him to carry the torch, and schooled Shawn in detective work from as early as age 7, aiding the development of his extraordinary powers of observation and deduction. At the age of 15, he achieved a perfect score of 100 on the detective's exam.
Despite his obvious talent, Shawn has no interest in entering the police force, and after graduating from Leland Bosseigh High School in Santa Barbara, California, in 1995, takes up a string of random jobs selected strictly for his own enjoyment. In his spare time, he entertains himself by calling in tips to the police hotline based on observations he has made on crime scenes shown in television news footage. After one such tip, the Santa Barbara police become suspicious of Shawn, whose information is so good that they believe it could only have come from an inside source. Desperate to avoid jail time, Shawn lies, explaining that he obtained the information in a psychic vision. Although skeptical, the department is impressed, and hires Shawn as a consultant. Enlisting the assistance of his reluctant best friend, Burton Guster, Shawn opens his own psychic detective agency, "Psych". It has been recently revealed he inherited his eidetic memory from his mother.
