Shadow never had a reason to doubt his abilities. He was highly skilled from an early age, making him a bit too cocky. He loved fighting and had a great time doing it.

However, once his village was attacked, he changed.

The weight of responsibility in his shoulders troubled him, leaving him with a much more responsible, honorable and mature attitude.

Machine Pistols

Sub-Machine Guns



One of the top members of an old covenant of assassins hidden within a small village. In order to collect resources, the MFA ordered the people of the village to leave their territory. For respect of their past and heritage, the people refused, choosing to stay on their land. In response, the MFA continually sabotaged the food and water resources of the village, hoping to drive them out. They wildly underestimated the importance of the land and the strength of their resolve.

The people stayed strong. At least for the first few weeks. Eventually, almost all of the village died out. Either by starvation, thirst or even food poisoning. When they were weak enough, the MFA decided to go in and finish it once and for all.

Shadow escapes and manages to hide in a nearby forest. In there, he meets the Tank and Berserker.

When he finds out that the Tank has left the MFA, Shadow decides to join him in a new group that would become known as the Smokes.
