Out of the shadows he arose...never knowing from where he came, Shadow wandered the land as a mercenary fighting for money and the pleasure of the kill. Finally finding a lord he could respect, he joined the ranks of the Black Legion under sir Pathfinder. Shadow earned his place as squire, while forging a lasting friendship with Kyrik the bear killer. Together they formed a deadly alliance and left the legion to find a new arena for their talent. Eventually they crossed paths with clerics of Takhisis. Shadow joined the dark goddess's army and rose quickly to the rank of Highlord commanding the blue dragon branch of the dragon armies. Here he has served the dark queen faithfully winning her many great victories.
