Shelly is a fictional character from the Wild Cards series of books.

Shelly lives in Atlanta's Jokertown with her common law husband, Armand and her two children. She keeps at tidy house despite the neighbourhood she lives in and is friendly to those that treat her likewise.

Her little girl, Tina is pretty except for her arms. Up and down them are rows of what look like rose thorns. Jeffrey is younger by a few years, and has prehensile feet, but no arms. His head is several times larger than normal and is supported by a metal brace attached to the back of his wheelchair.


She is covered with something that looks like yellow rubber hair. Her flesh is spongy and gives a bit too much when squeezed.
