The Shadow

It is during times of unrest that the ever consistent darkness casts a curious gaze on the inconsistent behaviors of the humans who cause it. A little piece of the darkness in the house of illusions became so curious, it broke free and became The Shadow. Being a shadow, it mimics the behaviors of the humans it observes without understanding. It cannot feel what they feel. It cannot be harmed or damaged. It can only play at doing so, like a child playing at being the grown ups around them. After all, nobody can tell you to smile when you don’t have a face.
