Shane Gregory Ryan Bate
One of the idiots who hung around with Erinsborough High bully Justin Hunter, Shane Gregory followed his mate everywhere, and the pair were joined by newcomer Kyle Canning. As the three of them bunked off school on uni info day, they were joined by Zeke Kinski, who was feeling excluded from his group of friends and had been writing essays for Justin and his mates to earn money. The four of them went to a disused building, where they played a prank on Zeke, removing some crates so he was stuck at the top of a wall. After they helped him down, in return for Zeke giving Justin his phone, Justin went to grab it but fell down a gap in the floor. Zeke managed to help him up, winning the respect of Kyle in the process, and before long, Zeke was turning against his old friends to hang out with Kyle.
The following week at school, Principal Andrew Simpson banned any pranks on muck-up day, insisting that lessons would continue as normal. But Kyle, Zeke, Shane and Justin had ideas of their own, and ran through the school wearing balaclavas, with cans of silly string and stink gas. Hearing the screams of students and seeing what looked like terrorists running through the school, Andrew contacted the police, but when the real culprits were revealed, Zeke took the blame for everything, and earned all four of them a suspension on the first week back at school.
A couple of weeks later, following a school rafting trip that had ended in disaster, Zeke was missing. His distraught stepfather Karl Kennedy was convinced that his stepson was alive, and, when he saw Shane walking through the Lassiter's grounds, he mistook him for Zeke.
