He raised him like family and he soon soon left Manehatten to join the Royal guard after witnessing a celebration in which the unicorn guards showed off their power.
However he didn't think that his brother ,Lightblade, had the same idea. He meet his brother after 5 years in the unicorn guards. His brother thought that because his brother was abandon that he would try and make it up to him. Shadowstep refused any and all aid that he gave him. Soon they turned to dislike each other as they were placed under separate control. Lightblade was placed under Princess Celestia solar army while Shadowstep was placed under Princess Lunar royal guards.
From then on he has been cold and seemingly emotionless during hours of service. However he shows some emotions to those he trust. How often shows little mercy when attacked or provoked and is often yelled by his commanders for it.
