Shannon Longhannon is a recurring character in the Tales of Arcadia franchise.

She is a student and the school treasurer of Arcadia Oaks High.

History

Trollhunters (Part One)

Shannon mainly just appears in the background, but becomes more open by the second story arc. 

Trollhunters (Part Two)

Shannon is given detention for abusing her position as the school treasurer in "The Reckless Club." She joins the others in goofing off around the school. Shannon then gives a heartfelt speech about being honest and looking past someone's actions, until Claire makes her admit her power abuse. It’s Shannon’s speech about honesty that encourages Jim to come clean to Queen Usurna about his crimes against Trollmarket. 

Trollhunters (Part Three)

Much like Part One, Shannon just appears in the background. 

3Below (Part One)

In “Collision Course”, Shannon is seen in the car with Aja and Krel Tarron, until they force everybody out (as they are being pursued by the Zerons). She then enters the car with Eli Pepperjack and locks the door so Coach Lawrence can’t get in. She then appears to almost throw up after Eli’s horrible driving and his Tokyo Drift. 

In "D'aja Vu", a running gag is that Shannon’s volcano project keeps getting destroyed. 

Shannon is also seen many different occasions, such as in “Beetle Mania”, where she exclaims that not wanting to be cool is so cool and that Aja even makes infestations look cool. 

3Below (Part Two)

In “Asteroid Rage”, as the asteroids approach Earth, Shannon confesses to another girl (probably a friend) that she has never been kissed, to which the girl confesses as well, leading to them both kissing each other.

Wizards (Part One)

The night after the Akiridions departed Arcadia, Shannon began wishing upon a shooting star to never return to school, shortly before the falling remains of Camelot destroy Arcadia Oaks High. Concluding that her wishes come true, Shannon tried wishing for eye lasers only to be disappointed.

Physical Description

Shannon is a cute, chubby, brown-haired girl. She has blue eyes, pink eyelids, and wears big, red glasses. Her clothes are usually neat, though she doesn't wear any makeup as long as Claire and Mary don't do it for her.

Personality

Shannon is rather quiet and shy. She likes reading books and is very kind and friendly. She is also honest, which can be seen when she says to everyone given detention that she doesn't understand why are they are so mean to each other, and can just be their true selves, and even gives them a heartfelt speech about spreading kindness.

She is also very (and often unusually) calm, seen as she doesn’t freak out as much as other people did in theEternal Night War and when they were attacked by Colonel Kubritz and her army of Omens in "A Glorious End, Part One".

Powers & Abilities

Abilities

  • Treasurer: Shannon mentions that she's a school treasurer, which means she handles the financial activities of Arcadia Oaks High's school district, sit with the school board, is responsible for maintaining financial and accounting records, and implement budgets while keeping track of receipts. However, in "The Reckless Club", the reason she was sent to detention was because she embezzled with her power, not really understanding the limits of her position as the school treasurer.

Weaknesses

  • Mortality: As a human, Shannon possesses a mortal body, so is therefore highly vulnerable to any forms of injuries, sicknesses, and death.

Trivia

  • Shannon shares the same model as one of the Janus Order members. 
  • Shannon has committed a crime of embezzlement, but as far as the series suggests, she was not convicted other than just detention.  
  • As mentioned by herself in "Collision Course", she has never kissed anyone.
    • This ends up being fulfilled when Shannon kisses another girl in "Asteroid Rage".
      • It's also revealed that Shannon is within the LGBTQ+ spectrum (her specific sexuality has not been disclosed), as shown when she kisses another girl as they both come to the realization neither of them have been kissed before. This was probably foreshadowed by her quietness and insecurities in earlier seasons of Trollhunters
