In which some shadows are set free,
In which mortals must face themselves, and myths must face their legends.
For clarity, Odin's shadow manifests as Fenrir, the giant wolf monster he'll have to face in Ragnarok. Arthur's shadow is a dragon, representing the weight and power of Arthurian myth (which, however, I don't recall having any actual dragons, but I'm probably wrong). The Erlkonig's.... well. Any guesses?
Transcript for Jareth, because my handwriting is abysmal:
P.4: My lords, gentlemen, I have cut loose your shadows and given them their own way. They are our prey tonight, all our own cunning brought against us. Catch your shadows, good sirs. The dawn is not so very far away.
P. 10: I wonder what kinds of shadows plague the steps of gods and legends...
