Changes made for the TV AdaptationEdit

In The Shannara Chronicles TV adaptation, while Shea's story is not told directly, certain aspects of it are modified so that The Elfstones of Shannara transitions easier to the small screen.

  • In Chronicles, Shea is Wil Ohmsford's father, not his grandfather. As Wil is portrayed as being half-Elf in Chronicles, Shea's blood is changed to full-Elf.
  • Chronicles features more visual effects of magic taking its toll on its wielders. As such, following the events of Sword, Shea becomes a drunk and dies an early death, living in obscurity away from his family.
  • Since Shea is deceased by the time Chronicles begins, he passes the Blue Elfstones to his wife, who then passes them to Wil at the show's beginning.

Shea Ohmsford is one of the main character of Terry Brooks' novel, The Sword of Shannara. He and his brother, Flick, go on many adventures in the struggle to defeat The Warlock Lord. Shea is half-Elven, the adopted son of the Ohmsfords. His father was an Elf and his mother was human, a distant cousin of the Ohmsfords who left him with them before she died. He was born in a small Westland community, but has few memories of it. It is revealed that he is the last surviving descendant of Jerle Shannara, the Elven King who defeated the Warlock Lord centuries ago. As such, he is the only one alive who can wield the Sword of Shannara, the magical talisman that could destroy the Warlock Lord forever. He is the grandfather of Wil Ohmsford. Even though he is much smaller than his brother and the rest of the party going to Pananor, he has the most courage of them all, as he is the only one left who can wield the great Sword of Shannara.
