My name is Shadow. I'm the world's ultimate life form. There's no time for games... farewell.

The only way I'm gonna get the secrets to my past is to get those Chaos Emeralds!

He was built by Professor Gerald Robotnik as the Ultimate Life Form from Black Arm DNA. Although he is a powerhouse, his initial purpose was to have genes to cure the deathly ill, specifically Gerald's granddaughter Maria. But before Shadow was able to be shared to the world, Maria was tragically killed. After that, Shadow tried to destroy the world, but eventually saved it instead.
