Shelly was born into the Rainsworth family as the child of Sheryl Rainsworth and an unknown father. When Shelly came of age herself to have a child, she gave birth to a baby girl on April 13th, whom she named Sharon Rainsworth.
Sharon found a man covered in blood and unconscious lying before the Rainsworths' Door to the Abyss after a few years, and so she ran to get help from Reim Lunettes (a servant of the Barma Dukedom who had been living in the Rainsworth mansion for nearly two years) who then had some of the Rainsworths' valets tend to the man as needed.
Reim walked in on the man (now going by the pseudonym 'Xerxes Break') scratching at his empty eye socket through the bandages wrapped around his head, and so Reim ran to Break and told him not to. Break pushed Reim down to the ground, telling him not to pay Break any mind or so much as look at him. Shelly walked into the room behind Reim, kneeling down and picking up his glasses to put them back on his face. From then on, Shelly would bring Break out with her and Sharon when they played outside together, and with such exposure to Shelly's serene personality, Break was slowly able to finally open up and become the man that he is today.
Coming of Age Ceremony ArcEdit
Sheryl was originally meant to attend the Coming of Age Ceremony of the heir to the Vessalius family, Oz Vessalius, however Shelly fell ill around the same time. Shelly could not care for herself in this condition, and so Sheryl took it upon herself to take care of her daughter, sending Sharon to apologize on behalf of Sheryl in person at the Coming of Age Ceremony with a large variety of flowers and Break acting as her escort.
Overall, Shelly bears a striking resemblance to her daughter, albeit older and more mature. Shelly has the same facial structure as Sharon, and the same light carmel-coloured brown hair. Shelly, however, styles her hair differently, using her longer hair by wrapping a large braid around her ponytail. In the anime, Shelly also had blue highlights in her brown hair. Shelly was shown to wear a purple dress adorned with dark purple ribbons, as well as a purple choker with a green gem in it, implying that Sharon's style of clothing is inspired by her mother's own wardrobe. Shelly's eyes remain unseen, so it is unknown what colour they are. Why her eyes have yet to be revealed is unknown, but this is a trait Shelly shares with other minor characters that appear in flashbacks, as well as Zai Vessalius.
Shelly's overall personality was much like Sheryl's, coming across as very motherly. Shelly's serene kindness is what molded Break into the person that he is presently, teaching him to smile once again. Shelly's thought to have a rather threatening demeanor, much like her mother and daughter, as Break had mentioned how if anything happened to Sharon on his watch, Shelly would kill him, which had been why he was willing to have Mad Hatter destroy Cheshire's bell in order to save Sharon. Any further information regarding Shelly's personality is unknown as of yet.
