Shania was one of the original four Noughts, and the first girl, to be admitted to Heathcroft High School. When the Cross students violently protested against Noughts being allowed into their school, Shania was injured in the scuffle, and had to wear a noticeable brown plaster.
When Sephy tried to sit at the Noughts' table, she attempted to befriend Shania. Shania appeared to be shy but friendly, but later showed disdain for Sephy, believing her to just be a show-off, and is delighted when she is beaten up. Shania is later expelled from the school for fighting with a Cross.
