Shadow is a playable character in Final Fantasy VI. He is a loner, an assassin and a mercenary, as his only friend is his dog, Interceptor. According to Edgar he is so cold he would "kill his best friend for the right price." (or "slit his mama's throat for a nickel" in the original release) Shadow comes and goes as he pleases, as throughout the World of Balance he leaves the player's party at various points after battle without warning.

Appearance

"He'd slit his mama's throat for a nickel!"
~ —Edgar on Shadow

Shadow wears classic black ninja attire. He wears his hood up and dons a mask, preventing any of his physical characteristics from being shown. In the flashbacks he is seen as sandy-haired, wearing a brown scarf and cloak over black clothes.

Personality

Shadow typically only shows tenderness to his dog, Interceptor and is frequently described by other characters as a ruthless assassin. When he joins the party, he rarely talks and shows little interest in their exploits, often staying only until he can collect his fee, then leaving at the most inopportune moments. It is revealed, though, that Shadow has had a troubled past. Shadow later warns Terra about "people who have killed their emotions", and encourages her not to do the same. In Thamasa, Shadow rescues the party from a burning house, though he claims it was only to retrieve Interceptor. Despite his cold and silent exterior, Shadow does develop a kinship with the party.
