His catchphrase, 'baaa man', possibly reference the name of the breed of dog he is based on, a Sheepdog. The beginning of the word is another animal's name, a sheep, which stereotypically makes the sound 'baaa'.
Shep is a dark brown dog with lighter brown hair covering his eyes. His ears are tinted with an even darker brown on the rest of his body. Shep's arms are tipped lighter, and so are his feet. Shep, overall, looks like a sheepdog, the breed of dog he is based off of.
Shep has a smug personality. This means he will appear kind and gentlemanly when in conversation with the player. On numerous occasions, he will flirt with the player and admire them. Shep will occasionally talk about being into niche hobbies, like being a train fanatic or collecting plastic bottle caps. He will be very interested in fashion and will mention it often in conversations and letters.
In his house, Shep has K.K. Reggae playing on his record player. Shep's house is very simple and smooth, with random items, including the pine table and simple love seat.
