"I will only say this once. Shadows are funny. They only show what's
visible to the eye in dim light, not what's fully seen when you look
at the actual thing. You're only a shadow. I'm the real thing. You dont
frighten me. I have insecurities, but so does all of us, it's what makes
us human." -Kara to her dark side shadow.
Adoptive daughter of Shade, Kara's past and how she ended up with Shade is unknown to many except Shade, Kara herself, and a few others.
