Officer Callahan

Fast Facts:

Callahan in Shiloh WEBTOON Original

Officer Callahan is a rookie member of Shiloh’s police force though many don’t believe she actually belongs. Callahan is an upper-class citizen and the daughter of an upper-echelon family. During a shift, Callahan and her extremely grumpy partner Barrett arrive first on a murder scene of a woman who has died twice. But how could that be possible? While questioning witnesses, a young girl rushes off and sends Callahan and Barrett on a wild goose chase through the ruins below Shiloh.

As Callahan continues to track down the Masked Man, she learns that Shiloh has its own secrets that even she isn’t privy to. She eventually comes face to face with the devil pulling the strings. They both want vengeance against the Masked Man, but is that enough for Callahan to make a deal with the devil? And what should she do when all signs of the devil’s true identity point to someone close to her? Maybe even a superior?

The Real Deal:

Callahan is the real deal. She is making waves in the town of Shiloh by choosing to leave her cushiony seat upon the upper tier and become an officer. Callahan isn’t afraid to continue to make waves as she openly investigates the people around her trying to uncover the town’s true secrets and learn who is actually in control. She’s got a lot of brains and determination that help drive her forward. Callahan may also be a bit hot-headed, but she will stand up for those around her and fight till the bitter end.

Why She Matters:

So why does Callahan matter? She isn’t just a badass with brains. Callahan is good at her job and is trying to make changes in Shiloh while also uncovering its dark secrets. She also isn’t afraid to put her life on the line to protect those around her. Callahan puts her issues with Barrett aside for the greater good and even saves him multiple times. There is a reason she is one of our favorite female leads in a WEBTOON series!

So, be like Callahan. Be determined, use your brains and strength and stand by those around you for the greater good.
