Shadowkin are very free spirited, tricksters. They don't believe in a very strong family unit, rather choosing to let their children fend for themselves when they are of an appropriate age, which is generally around 14 or 15. As soon as they can either get a job for themselves or survive outside of the house. Shadowkin unlike the other kin, are spread inside and outside the empire, and some even venture down into the underworld and take residence with the underfolk, perhaps only half of the shadowkin population in Cora is actually contained within the Empire, leaving a large number in other lands. Shadowkin seem to have created the Silence in opposition to the empire, along with taking up residence in the underworld.

Shadowkin are slightly shorter than the average kin. Their skin is usually a medium gray to dark gray, and always without any color. Their hair is almost always black, though some have gray, or even a blueish tinted black.
