The unnamed Shadowdancer is an assassin who had been sent to kill the King of Nowhere along with his accomplice, "Kaboom" Redaxe. Their original plan involved assassinating the king while he was heading to a peace conference with the King of Somewhere at the Weary Travelers Inn and Tavern. He originally planned on using his powers to travel through shadow to murder the King while he was still in his room, though his accomplice pointed out that since they existed in a stick comic, there were no shadows and he was therefore useless. Mistaking Roy Greenhilt for the king, they attempted to assassinate him. The Shadowdancer passed Belkar on his way climbing up the inn's exterior, and the two exchanged professional courtesies. In the royal suite, Redaxe blew in the door while the Shadowdancer came in through the window. Unarmed, Roy and Elan hid in a broom closet, where Elan was poisoned by the Shadowdancer's shuriken. They were able to escape when the assassins were easily fooled by the Girdle of Feminity/Masculinity's effects on the fighter paired with Elan's cloak and a mop to disguise Roy as a woman.
Roy returned with Haley and Vaarsuvius, causing the assassins to flee out the window after a short combat. On the ground Redaxe's bluff with a barrel of TNT resulted in the inn exploding, but he and the Shadowdancer were able to escape after the fire caused shadows to appear, allowing him to finally use his Shadow Jump ability to escape out of sight.
He and his partner later attempted to assassinate the king in his throne room, but they were scared away at the sight of Sapphire Guardsman Ho Thanh, who unwittingly intimidated them into fleeing while he was on a diplomatic mission to Nowhere.
