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 Skeletor to take down Eternos Palace. With their great strength and stealthy appearance, Shadow Beasts are more than a match for most heroic warriors!
