Finn Shelby is the youngest of the Shelby siblings and a member of the Peaky Blinders.


Unlike his three older brothers, Finn did not fight in the First World War as he was not old enough to be recruited. Though he is a Peaky Blinder, his brothers often watch over his safety as he learns to fit better and grow into the role.

Series 1 Edit

Finn is eleven years old and only has a minor role in the family business, with no real power. His aunt Polly often tries to shield him from the worst excesses of the Peaky Blinders.

Series 2 Edit

Two years later (1922) Edit

Although Finn is older now, his brothers still shield him from the violence of their life, and he also evidently has trouble fist fighting, a quality that separates him from his older brothers as they are all naturally good at it.

At the day of the grand re-opening of The Garrison Pub, Thomas tells Finn to go get his brother Arthur Shelby Jr. to come to the event. After seeing Arthur's violent episodes many times, and with the suggestion from his brother Thomas, Finn introduces Arthur to a drug called Tokyo (cocaine), and tells him to only use it during race days and special occasions.

They take Finn with them to the Epsom races, where Arthur, John and the gang hold up their rival Sabini’s bookmakers and burn their licenses. However, Finn is only allowed to act as lookout.

Series 3 Edit

Two years later (1924) Edit

Finn is now 16 years of age. He seems to be a rebellious teenager and he wants to be more active as a member of the Peaky Blinders and the Shelby Family. However, his brothers still don't allow him, especially Arthur, who seems to be very protective towards to his younger brother.

Relationships Edit

Arthur Shelby Edit

Arthur is Finn's oldest brother and the one he is closest to out of the four. He and aunt Polly did actually raise Finn up, when his mother died and his father abandoned the Shelby Family. Maybe this is the reason why Arthur tries so hard to keep Finn out of the illegitimate business.

Arthur and Finn are first seen together in Season 2, at the day of the grand re-opening of The Garrison Pub.

Quotes Edit

"When did either of you two do a days work?" - Finn to Arthur and John
