Brief Character History

Shawn was the beloved husband of Caroline Brady, and father of Roman, Kimberly, Kayla, and Bo. They later adopted Max and Frankie as well. Although Shawn learned he was not Bo's father in the late 1980s that never changed the love they had for their son, or the subsequent love they shared for Bo's children. Shawn worked hard to teach his children the value of honest work and family values.

In the summer of 2007, Shawn became involved in the storyline that would reveal the genesis of the Brady/DiMera feud- an elicit love affair between Shawn's sister Colleen Brady and Stefano's father Santo DiMera. While the star-crossed lovers never married, their union did produce a son, who they believed to be John Black. (John later learned that he was not Colleen's son.)

Shawn thought that his sister had died after her relationship with Santo ended, but Shawn was thrilled to discover that she was alive and flew to Ireland to reunite with her just before her death. Unfortunately, his plane was sabotaged on the flight home from Ireland. Shawn gave up his oxygen so that his son Bo (who was unconscious) could still breathe. Shawn died the eternal family man. The Brady family continues to celebrate Shawn's life and teachings.
