Shadows are the nobles living in the Shadows House, and masters of the Living Dolls.


A Shadow is completely black, and is covered in soot. They share a body which is exactly of the same shape as that of their Living Doll, though their voice is different.

They emit soot from their heads when they experience negative emotions, and the stronger the emotion, the more soot is emitted.

As noted by Ryan in Chapter 45, a Shadow decays when they die, though a Shadow dispersing into soot upon death is never seen before until the end of Kate's Debut.
