Animated Shadow

Ansem, Seeker of Darkness uses a living shadow-like entity in battle.


The power to bring shadows to life. A sub-power of Darkness Manipulation.

The user can transform their or others shadows into living beings. As the rule of anything happening to the real body happens to the shadow, this ability may allow the user to manipulate the body and cause damage of reality by attacking the shadow. This means anything that happens to the shadow will be reflected in the true body; in short, a form of "reverse" shadow puppetry.

Possible Uses

  • Sentient Power
  • Umbrakinetic Creature Creation


  • User's shadow may have a mind of its own.
  • Maintaining the shadow may be draining to the user.
  • May require light to create a shadow.
