The Shadows are Voldo's servants in Soulcalibur IV. In Voldo's Story Mode, he is accompanied by a shadow for the first three stages, but then the shadow is unable to continue after beating Scheherazade. In Shura's Story Mode, after she defeats Voldo and a few shadows on the second stage, a shadow follows her, feeling that she is a stronger presence. However it may be the fact that a demon is within Shura.
