Resurrected Half Upir
is a reanimated child of and . She is a ressurected half Upir who maintains many demonic features much as her mother had in her youth. Shelley is completely devoted to her brother, , as he is to her. Though she is mute in the first , the voice in her mind with which she would often speak sounded like a smart, sophisticated woman. She also has strong intelligence, shown through conversations with her . However, Shelley does find her voice in the second season, which by the tone indicates that she is truly a child at heart. In Season 3 Shelly makes the biggest transition of her life during the most stressful. After being put into her mother's supervised care and forced to take drugs that she doesn't want, she escapes her mother's clutches and takes refuge with a community of Hemlock Grove's homeless in the abandoned factory. In this community, she discovers things about herself that she never thought she could experience, especially love.
When Shelley was only a year old, she died of unexplained causes (possibly at the hands of Olivia). After J.R. found out that Pryce could reanimate people using one of his projects, J.R. took Shelley's body to Pryce. Pryce's work was successful, however, not without some unforeseen consequences; Shelley became deformed and was given the ability of luminescence. One year later, J.R. emotionally disowned Shelley, calling her an abortion. On the night of J.R.'s death, with gun in hand, J.R. watched Shelley sleep in her crib, as she glowed and wheezed. Later that night, J.R. committed suicide by shooting himself in the head.
