Leaving Verse Three, Chapter One
keeps this site and its author alive.
This is an attempt to capture for reference a character paper snapshot of the character Shella, a supporting character in the Multiverser novels who debuts in Verse Three, Chapter One and returns...later. This character sheet includes everything that is confirmed about her, plus a few extrapolations, in that first book, and thus represents her as she is in the chapter in which Slade vanishes from her world.
The picture was dug up on the Internet as an approximate image of her; it's not accurate, but honestly comes pretty close.
It is a bit surprising how little information actually exists about her, and most of it is personal. The attributes here are from the author's view of her. Although the author has a clear picture in his own mind concerning her appearance, she is not described in the book beyond being a heartbreaker, and it is likely that the reader has formed his or her own image of the character. Bias levels similarly have been estimated based on the writer's suppositions about the world and her knowledge of it.
To assist the referee, some entries include at least one coded reference to a chapter or chapters in which the item is mentioned; thus by cross-referencing with the story you can determine the details. The chapters are identified by which character's story is being told, and thus most of those here begin with "S" for Slade; this is followed by a three-digit number indicating the chapter number for that character, not the chapter number for the book. Thus if you want to find the first reference to her name, you read here that it appears in S009, and on the index page for the novel you search for the text "Slade 9" and that will take you to the link for that chapter. Obviously the chapters beginning "K" are Joe's story, and thus "Kondor", and those beginning "H" are Lauren's story, "Hastings". The first novel ends with Kondor 41, Slade 42, and Hastings 43.

Djinni Quest, her home world.
Reportedly sweet, but a bit conniving.
Born the fourth year of Slade’s time in the Djinni Quest world S009 and was always a beautiful girl from the day of her birth. Stayed at Slade’s castle the year after Mica’s vesting, at twenty years old S015 S016. She attended Omigger’s funeral the year she turned twenty-one and stayed at Slade’s castle again that summer. She then took an interest in Omigger’s magic books, and started reading the primer S017. At twenty-two she is settled at Slade Manor and busily studying magic S019, and she surpassed him by the time she was twenty-three S020. His verser existence was explained to her, and she threw him a kiss as he versed out.
