Julian Shea is a tech guru turned social activist and a major investor in SafeSpace, Seattle. He has an unexpected boldness and forms a bond with Macy Vaughn, and they later enter a relationship. Due to a traumatic accident during his childhood, Julian created the Shea Group and The Faction to study magic, hoping he could find a cure for his sister.
As a child, Julian's parents died in a car crash, and his sister Rosemary was seriously injured and has since been in an coma. After this tragedy, Julian has been placed under the guardianship of his aunt Vivienne Laurent. His aunt was a very caring guardian, but as Julian got older, for unknown reasons, she began to interfere with all sorts of his romantic relationships, and at some point Julian noticed this.
When he was younger, he spent his entire allowance on a sweater just because he thought it looked cool.
