Shadow Beasts are great ape-like beasts who live in tribes throughout the dark hemisphere. Shadow Beasts can only come out in the absence of light. Originally created by Count Marzo as a weapon to use against his enemies, the beasts were driven back by Princes Keldor and Randor and forced to reside in the shadow of Mount Barathrum. There they developed a longstanding hatred of both the Human and Gar races. Easily manipulated, the ever-growing colony of Beasts was later controlled by Beast Man in the service of both Skeletor and Evil-Lyn to take down Eternos Palace. With their great strength and stealthy appearance, Shadow Beasts are more than a match for most heroic warriors!
