IHMN: A New Recruit

"Who knows what evil lurks in the minds of men? The Shadow knows!"

The Shadow is a mysterious American of contradictory origins. No one is quite sure who he is though he is branded a vicious vigilante by some and a hero by others.  His past and identity are ambiguous. Mr. Sherlock Holmes does not approve of his methods but when asked if they had met he did not answer.

 He moves without being seen by men.

The Shadow is characterized as having "the power to cloud men's minds so they cannot see him". The Shadow does not have the literal ability to become invisible. Clad in black, The Shadow operates mainly after dark as a vigilante in the name of justice, and terrifying criminals into vulnerability.  A petty thug claims to have seen the Shadow's face, and thought he saw "a piece of white that looked like a bandage." Other villains claim they have seen The Shadow's true face and remark that The Shadow is a man of many faces with no face of his own. 

 The Professor's minions are no match for The Shadow.

The Shadow has complete control over his vocal cords and can throw his voice (producing a chilling laugh that can paralyze opponents) and accurately mimic anyone. He has an nearly photographic memory and is also a master of disguise and slight of hand. The Shadow is a world class intellect and a extremely dangerous opponent to those he deems evil.

  The meeting of Mr. Randolph Carter (who wields the Silver Key) and The Shadow. Carter relays secret information to The Shadow that recruits him to be a soldier in the ongoing secret War of the Witches

    1. That it is. I pedicure he is going to end up being an unexpected monkey wrench for some of the companies in our ongoing IHMN campaign.
