Out of the Shadows is the bonus game for the thirteenth Dark Parables game, Requiem for the Forgotten Shadow. In it, we play as the Fairytale Detective, who must find Duke Herman and Duchess Elena, who went missing. No connection to a fairytale.
With the Shadow God's evil part of the soul finally destroyed, he was back to his normal form, peacefully making candles for the city. He no longer felt like an empty husk.
The Sun and Moon Goddesses were free, and the Maiden Goddess and the Shadow God were finally together after centuries of being separated.
Anaben was peaceful, and the strange sickness vanished from the diseased, including the Duchess. The Duke and Duchess continued ruling proudly.
However, something strange happened. After some time passed, they both vanished, and were nowhere to be found in the city. That raised more than a few questions...
By the time the Fairytale Detective and the Duchess defeated the shapeshifter Arne, Guida had already escaped and was nowhere to be found. Luckily, her plan of taking the form of the Duchess and infiltrating Anaben was put to a stop.
The Duke and Duchess returned safely to Anaben. As his beloved left the carriage, a crowd of people greeted her with heartwarming cheers and tears of joy. The compassionate caretakers of Anaben were finally home.
Upon returning, they informed the Shadow God about Guida's plans, and he was deeply shook. Not long after, with his beloved Maiden Goddess's blessing, he embarked on a journey to try and retrieve his old friend Guida, and convince her that she was on the wrong side the whole time.
The Cat of Shadows
Since ancient times, the people of Anaben believed in the superstition that black cats brought misfortune and misery. In one peaceful household, there lived a cat white as snow. One day, she had a litter: six pure white kittens, but the seventh was as black as the night, with mesmerizing blue eyes. The cat's owner was horrified when he saw the shadowy kitten, so he took it away and left it in the woods. The blind kitten mewled, crying out for her mother. By fate, a mysterious figure was passing by and heard the tiny kitten's cries. It was the Shadow god. He took pity on her, and cradled her in his arms. He named her Guida and kept her at his side ever since. One day, a thought occured to him. He forged a beautiful ruby necklace and put it around the cat's neck, and before he knew it, a blue-eyed lady stood before him. 'You cared so deeply for me, now it is time for me to return the favour', said Guida. The Shadow god insisted she should be free to go wherever she desired, but she refused, wishing only to serve him. Not long after, the Shadow god was split and destroyed by the Sun and Moon goddesses. With her beloved Shadow god gone, Guida swore to restore him at any cost, believing her hero had been betrayed by his lover and her sisters. She turned back into a cat, and plotted revenge on the Maiden goddess and her two sisters.
