If you haven't played FFVI yet, this is probably the only section of the site that you'll want to check out. Learn a little bit more about Shadow without completely spoiling the game for yourself. This is also a good place to brush up on FFVI knowledge if it's been awhile!
Profile - Shadow's basic information from the FF Anthology manual, accompanied by a concise description of him, written by myself.

Quotes - Let's face it. Shadow had some of the coolest lines in the game -- read his best ones in all their glory.
Even though the focus of this site is on Shadow as a character, we can't forget that FFVI is a game. Alexandra covered as much about Shadow in battle as possible, without getting redundant or tedious. This is really useful if you're attempting FFVI for the first time or you're just curious!

Tactics - Shadow is one of the stronger fighters in your party, so find out how to use him to the best of his ability!
