Author's Note: Shadow is one of the most tortured souls in Final Fantasy VI. Much to my amazement, the game didn't really solve the mystery behind Shadow and his past. The gamer was left to wonder about the connection between Relm and Shadow hinted at by the 'Memento Ring' (which was only able to be worn by them, and then later renamed and altered in the PSOne version), and by the few dreams witnessed when the party slept at an inn and Shadow was a member. This mystery fascinated me.

I would recommend that you read my fic titled 'Terra' before reading this one, as I reference several happenings in that previous fic. I think you'll enjoy both (of course, why wouldn't I think that?).

Shadows of the past hint at the morning held within the waiting future; but only if one chooses to hold them together as one life.
