Shane Gregory Botwin is Nancy's younger son and was with Judah at the time of his death. Shane takes out his grief in bizarre emotional ways, such as talking to his father even though he isn't alive. Shane is also very smart. He was born in 1995.
Shane develops an obsession over Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, and he asks his mother to move the family there many times. Called "Strange Botwin" by his fellow students, he is viewed as a freak at school, and is the frequent target of bullies. At home, he is neglected by his family because of their drug businesses.
Shane's behavior becomes more extreme upon moving to Ren Mar. He eventually turns to sex, drugs, alcohol and even murder. He also becomes increasingly violent and develops a disregard for rules, laws, and other social conventions. He has masturbated to a naked picture of his mom which he kept hidden in a book. He later develops a yeast infection from the two girls to whom he lost his virginity. Shane eventually finds himself redhanded at the scene of a murder to defend the family by killing Pilar in cold blood, and the transformation reflects Nancy's absence as a proper mother to her children.
He gains Ignacio's respect by acknowledging that he would kill the hitman with no remorse to protect his family. He is viewed by Ignacio as a kindred spirit of sorts.
When he allows Nancy to take the charge for killing Pilar, he leaves on a plane and is not seen for several years later. When we see him again, he is 18 years old. He finally returns when Nancy is set free on probation where he tries to re-connect with his family.
