Lands of Astoria
Fiendish Patron with Amnesia
The Shadow is a powerful dark entity from the lower planes of hell. It came to Cain when he was young and granted him power and protection. The Shadow has stayed with Cain for quite some time, seemingly needing him as much as he needs it. This is because the Shadow has no memory of who or what it is. The Shadow recognises that it used to be considerably more powerful, but when it forgot its own name it lost that power. It views its link with Cain as a means of recovering its name and regaining its lofty position of power. Cain is the first creature that the Shadow has been able to bind to in over a generation, so it is deeply invested in his survival.
