Shawn is a former marine who suffered from posttraumatic stress disorder. He came to Port Charles as one of The Balkan's henchmen, but quickly changed sides to work with Jason. He was hired by Stone Cold to protect Josslyn from Franco and became close with Carly in the process. He also bonded with Molly over their shared PTSD issues and revealed that before becoming a marine he was a teacher.
Though he tried to leave town a couple of times, he kept getting pulled back into Carly's drama. Fearing Franco was after Jason, Carly convinced Shawn to head to Hawaii where Jason and Sam were honeymooning. Carly of course tagged along despite Shawn's insistence that she not.
