Name: Jin O'Shannon

Age: 21

Junior, majoring in meteorology. Interning with channel 2 as a weather forecaster.


Jin is the youngest of seven children, born into a rather traditional and loving Irish family. He was raised in Ireland, but wound up picking too many fights with local boys who were devout followers of whatever faith made them fight each other. He would claim the other religion just so they’d jump him. Frustrated, his parents sent him to San Francisco as an exchange student through high school. They figured in such a secular environment he wouldn’t be driving all of the priests and pastors up the wall, and that he’d get in less trouble.

While Jin had protested the move at first, he soon fell in love with the city and all of its opportunities. His favorite activity changed from mocking altar boys to sitting on the Bay, watching the clouds and the bridge, feeling the breeze on his face. Everything in the air seemed so free, so alive. Jin’s major was decided the day an occluded front caused lightning to knock down a tree right near his seated form. He’d never been so excited before in his life. Of course, that was before he met Chuu and learned the joys of drunken fighting, in the wind and rain.

His letters home never mention what he does outside of work and school, for fear his parents would somehow drag him back, away from this wild city, away from where he’s actually feeling alive. Oh, he’s bound to visit them someday, and he misses the beauty of Ireland, but San Francisco has become home.
