Background

Jiang Bai's shadow control powers became evident early in his life. The Crimson Spider Lin Kuei found out about this, slew his parents, and adopted him into their clan. His powers worked well with his assassin training allowing Shadowspinner to be one of the most feared assassins in the world.

On a mission to assassinate a wealthy industrialist, Shadowspinner found himself in the middle of a golf course on a cloudy day. With no other source of shadow, he attempted to form a shadow assassin out of his own shadow.

But being so closely connected with the shadow, Bai found himself splitting in twain. He wrestled to merge the duplicates of himself back together, but to no avail. One of the pair was more sinister than the original Bai, the other less so. In an effort to preserve its integrity the 'better' Bai opened up a door to the shadow dimension and fled. The 'more evil' Bai found that it had lost the power to enter the shadow dimension and, thus, could not pursue his twin.

This Bai remained a part of the Crimson Spider - still one of the most feared assassins in the world. The other Bai wavered between doing things for himself and doing things to help others. When the Immortals were re-formed, he joined as Dog.

Personality

A loyal member of the Crimson Spider, Shadowspinner is a vile assassin. He is a sarcastic smart aleck with a biting wit and he lives for the kill. After having split himself (and weakened himself) once he avoids using his own shadow as a source for Shadow Assassins.

Quote
"Yeah, he used to be an important man. Now, he's just a dead man."
Powers
Shadowspinner is an expert at An Ch'i and Lin Kuei. That he can manipulate shadows makes him an incredibly effective assassin. He can create a web of shadow to ensnare his victims and he can create shadow assassins to slay them. Bai Shadowspinner's access to the Shadow Dimension is a lot more limited than Bai Dog's, but he can still travel short distances through shadow.
Appearance

Shadowspinner wears typical Crimson Spider Lin Kuei garb - loose fitting deep crimson coveralls with a spider symbol on the left breast and a black veil covering the nose and mouth. To stand out, Shadowspinner also wears a short black cloak, and, instead of crimson, he has black gloves and boots.
