History and GameEdit
Not much is known about Shelly prior to the start of the game, but sometime before the events of the game, she became a cheerleader at the school she attended.
She and some of her classmates were on a field trip with their teacher, but ended up in a strange unfamiliar area, which leads up to the events of the start of the game.
While on the trip, the group takes a wrong turn and they end up at a dead end. Shelly had inquired her teacher on what to do next, but before Ms. Siska could properly decide, Doni runs off after finding a way to the other side of the bridge.
They end up in the entrance of an abandoned village, where the name of the village is smudged off. Getting goosebumps, Shelly requests that they return home and Ms. Siska agrees after they round up Doni, who had run ahead into the village. Eventually, the group meets up in front of the abandoned High School. Doni and Yayan decide to go inside out of curiosity, with Ms. Siska following to make sure they don't get into trouble. She tags along with Ms. Siska, not wanting to be left behind, leaving Linda and Ira to wait outside.
They later make it back to the entrance of the school after Linda and Ira went in to fetch them after they felt like they were in the school for too long. Ms. Siska realizes that Yayan has gone missing, prompting the group to go back inside to look for him.
Shelly doesn't notice Ira's sudden change in behavior and was too occupied with trying to contact Yayan's phone to notice Ira staggering towards the exit. She along with the others mysteriously disappears from the school lobby, leaving Linda behind.
Act II Edit
After Linda is wandering upon the village and solving a couple puzzles, Linda will stumble upon a medical tent. When investigating inside, Linda finds Shelly hiding in the tent. Relieved that she had found another person, Shelly quickly asks for the whereabouts of the other friends.
After a brief conversation, suddenly Ms. Siska enters the tent, surprised to find that two of her students were alive. After a moment, Ms. Siska informs Linda to go find and help Ira, who is standing outside, hoping to save more of her students. Linda leaves Ms. Siska to Shelly and goes after Ira. After Linda leaves, the player has a choice to return back to Ms. Siska and Shelly, but if they do, they will find Shelly hanging from a noose, dead, and Ms. Siska nowhere to be seen.
In Act I, Shelly is seen to be fairly attached to her teacher, afraid to be left behind by her. The girl respects her teacher's decisions, but is not afraid to complain to her about going home. Nonetheless, Shelly and Ms. Siska share a healthy teacher-student relationship.
However, it is heavily implied that Ms. Siska was the one who killed Shelly in Act II. The reasoning behind this is unknown, but it is possible that Ms. Siska was posessed at the time and did not know what she was doing.

Similarly, Yayan finds her perkiness and prissy, yet sparky attitude annoying. Despite so, Shelly showed concern when Yayan fails to make it out of the school. Shelly even seems close enough to know Yayan's phone number, as evidenced when she tried to call him when he goes missing.
In Act II, Shelly briefly states that she hopes that both Ira and Yayan are safe, implying that she does care for him in the inside.
Shelly is not shown interacting with Doni much, but it is described in the Official Description that Doni is her brother-in-law, implying that they might have a more or less friendly relationship with each other.
