The main body of Shadow

Shadow is a somber figure, bearing a mysterious appearance in a black cloak and hood.

In the manga, in its Sakura card form, Shadow has a star just at the top of his cloak on his chest.

Personality

Shadow is chaotic and mischievous like many of the other cards, causing trouble for others with its magic

Magic and Abilities

Shadow Magic (Umbrakinesis): Shadow can control the shadows of people and objects at its master's command. One of its characteristics is that it can touch others but cannot be touched itself unless done so by one with strong magic.

Shadow Tracing: Shadow is able to hunt down others by finding its way to them by means of their shadow.

Fortune Telling: All Clow Cards have the ability to help their user predict the future. Their method of fortune-telling is similar to that of tarot cards. The interpretation of the message the Clow Cards relay depends on the magical power of the user.

Synopsis

Capture

When first seen in Episode 2 of the anime, Shadow causes mayhem at Sakura's school by stealing all the shadows of the students and piling up the school desks. When Sakura tries to capture it, Shadow forms all of the surrounding shadows into one big shadow monster. Tomoyo Daidōji and Cerberus help to disperse the extra shadows by using the school's floodlights, weakening Shadow enough for Sakura to capture it with Windy.

Shadow became very loyal to Sakura, used to capture the Silent[1], Thunder[2], and Mist[3] Cards.

In volume 2 of the manga, Shadow appears in a sweets shop where it tries to tip over shelves on the customers. After seeing that Syaoran Li's thunder wards are able to dissolve the shadows captured by Shadow, Sakura uses Thunder to the same effect setting some street lamps alight and was able to capture it after pinning it with Sword. She later had to put the flames out with Watery. This is the first time that Syaoran and Sakura work together to capture a Clow Card.

Transformation

In Episode 59: Sakura, Tomoyo, and the Ball Trap, Sakura used Shadow to lead her to Tomoyo.

In Volume 9 (Chapter 38) of the manga Shadow is transformed when Sakura and Li lose Tomoyo in the school due to the rooms all shifting about. Sakura hears Tomoyo singing and orders Shadow to track down the singers voice.

Trivia

  • The Shadow is under The Light , although it looks more like under The Dark The reasoning to this is because The Shadow uses light from The Light; therefore, you wouldn't see Shadow in darkness.
  • Shadow's hooded appearance may be a reference to popular depictions of The Grim Reaper
