April Shephard was a former girlfriend of Douglas Reynholm. She is only seen in one episode, during which she has a relationship with Douglas.
It is revealed early on in her relationship with Douglas that she used to be male before undergoing large amounts of surgery so that she could have her gender changed. However, when she says to Douglas "I used to be a man", Douglas misheard her and though she said "I'm from Iran". After Douglas discovered his mistake, he told April that it wasn't going to work out. April was enraged and punches Douglas hard in the jaw. Douglas flies across the room into a table, cutting his lip and chipping a tooth. He gets up, wipes the blood off his lip and then snarls "You bastard!" and hits her back. She gets back up and a massive fight took place somewhere near the science labs in Reynholm Industries. Despite being savagely injured, Douglas emerges the victor after throwing April through a glass wall and into the room where Jen's speech was taking place. April then crashed into the box that was thought to be the internet.
April is a journalist for Richest Magazine and was originally only supposed to interview Douglas for her article. In the end, April did write an article entitled Arsehole. It is surprising that she is able to stand up, despite the devastating injuries she suffered in her climatic fight with Douglas.
