Shawn is a level 1 quest giver located on the Lakeshire docks in the human-aligned zone of Redridge Mountains. He wants to retrieve his friend Nida's necklace from the bottom of the lake, and will ask even members of the opposing faction to help him.
Shawn is named after Shawn Carnes, one of Blizzard's quest leads. Originally his accompanying quest NPC was Hilary, a girlfriend at the time. The NPC has now changed to Nida. The cat in question, Effcee, was actually Hilary's cat in real life often refered to as FC or ....... cat by Shawn.
