Shadow Man is a Shadow Specter that appears as a terrifyingly huge dark figure with glowing eyes of varying colors that often appears in the dead of night. Usually only in rural areas where it is foggy. A mysterious light appears in back of him as he seems to do a mime act as if trapped behind a wall of glass. He is generally harmless and is only looking to scare people thereby feeding off their fear. He is, in fact, a powerful Djinn, or Arch-Jinn, that phased into our dimension many millennia ago. Jinn are higher dimensional beings often considered more powerful than demons! When trapped in special magical lamps or bottles they become wish granting Genies. The purpose of the wishes to to safely expel enchanted energies that build up within a Jinn over time in our reality.
Ancient scrolls indicate that Shadow Man may have in fact been a former leader of the Jinn in a higher dimension. He came to Earth to battle the Devil himself for evil supremacy. However, it was actually a deceptive trick of his Djinn rival who is the current leader of the Jinn named Iblis Shaytan. While the leader was away Shaytan took command and made the entire Earth into the worlds first Genie Lamp. This was before the time humankind had knowledge of how to trap Jinn. He trapped his rival here slightly out of phase with our reality with the blessing of some Dark Underworld Gods who wanted to tap into his power.
Shadow Man continually fights to not have his power siphoned and will appear in the Witching Hour through the crack of dawn when his power is at its peak. Theoretically one could ask him for three wishes and he’d have to grant them against his will. However, we would advise against opening the door to him as he could not otherwise hurt you. Genies often twist wishes to harm people! If nobody was regularly taking power away from this Genie then there would be a paranormal power overload that could blow up the entire Earth! Some nefarious figures have looked for a way to create a Doomsday Device via magic tapping into Shadow Man. Hopefully, this apocalyptic scenario will never take place!
