Shadow the Hedgehog is a character from the Sonic the Hedgehog franchise. He made his first appearance in Sonic Adventure 2 for the Sega Dreamcast.
In user:PinkHurricane's fanon, he's biromantic homosexual, meaning he's romantically interested in both males and females but only feels sexual attraction to other males.
Shadow somewhat looks like his lover, Sonic. He has spikes on the back of his head and on his back that point upwards. He is primarily black with red marks on his arms, on his legs, on the spikes on his head and around his eyes. He often wears gloves with golden rings attached, and a pink sushi restaurant uniform.
Shadow can be quite dorky and silly at times, but he is protective. Once he's wearing one outfit, he won't wanna change out of it. However, if someone threatens his friends, he will go nearly psycho. If there's a friend who needs help, he will help them, but he acts kind of mean, rude, sarcastic, and dry while doing so; that's just his way of showing he cares, though.
Shadow was abused by his father at a young age, causing him to have a scar on his right shoulder and on his right side. As he grew older, he learned that, if they were to open, he would die. He had an instant love/hate interaction with Sonic when they met, and soon it turned into plain love.
Shadow is incredibly fast, most likely as fast as Sonic, but it is never fully explained if this is due to his jet shoes. Shadow also has the homing attack, which, as the name implies, allows him to rush and home in on nearby enemies.
