Question about Shadow
Got a question here.

Why is shadow called a monster in The Monarch of The Glen? As far as I can see he's strong, but not a monster. And he shows he's human by saving the Grendel.

In "Monarch," Shadow is considered a monster by Mr. Alice and the gang because he is hired to start or participate in a fight. In this case, the "monster" is an enemy, something the audience can root for or against.

Mr. Alice is also not the nicest guy on the planet; it would be like him to call Shadow a monster.

Possibly because he has the blood of gods in him and some could perceive that. Although a half breed, he definitely has some talents most normal folks do not...
