Name: Damon Glasgow
Birth date: Cadere 26th, 1814
Age as of 1826: 12
Damon was the powerful Minister of Foreign Affairs and King David Farin's cousin. He was the second most powerful Shadow in Paradise and was the guardian, organizer, and implementer of David's Second Shadow War. He was born to Lord Aaron Glasgow and the King's sister, Noelle. According to Shadow law, this made him a prince of Paradise and a viable candidate for the throne. The fact that he lived as long as he did in the cutthroat political arena of Paradise, was testimony to his parent's position in Shadow society and his own wit and will. Damon only enjoyed his parent's protection until their assassination in 1834. He was twenty at the time, but knew enough to make himself adviser to the Shadow king as well as a political ally to the powerful lord Abraham Hotchkiss. The Hotchkiss family was the oldest and richest family in Paradise and had a long standing rivalry with the Farin family.
Damon's cousin, David, was kidnapped by a Shadow terrorist group known as the Centralists a year after the Glasgow Assassination and Damon personally led the rescue team. They found David six months later, tortured to near death and missing three of his fingers on his right hand. Damon's intervention saved David's life and won him the king's eternal gratitude. From 1835 to 1843, David and Damon formed a political alliance and together overthrew the old king of Paradise and killed David’s oldest brother in order for David to ascend the throne. As his cousin adjusted to being king, Damon requested to oversee the peace treaty between the Shivians and Killers. He received the Risina Medal of Peace as well as the Shivian Order of Paix Salam for his efforts. It is hard to track Damon's movements during this period as he rarely wrote anything down, but from 1844 to the 1850's he seemed to travel around the world, bringing allies to David's war, and causing trouble for the Shadow's opponents. He was a vital, but mysterious component to David's War and the world renowned historian, Alexander Phillips, argues that the Second Shadow War would never have occurred without him.
