Lore: The Zer'atai have always been known for their tradition of adoring armor with the bones of slain Zerg. However, such traditions would not serve this ill-fated templar well, as a lapse in judgement permanently fused the templar to his own armor. Stripped of his name, his sanity, and his origins, the Shadow entered The Void itself, where he is greeted warmly by the Dark Voice. The Dark Voice channels energy through Shadow, allowing him to blur the lines between reality and The Void.
Shadow is an autoattack semi-carry who has an amazing potential to snowball a game to easy victory, but otherwise falls of late game. He has, arguably, the best ability to stick onto a single target with his auto-kite E mechanism. Proper usage of his Vortex and ult can provide great utility in a team fight, and is essential for mastering Shadow. Note that his Vortex can be used to dodge skillshots or projectiles. Run 4/1/1 talents, with attack damage, attackspeed, lifesteal, haste, health, and energy regen to maximize early game potential.
