From MC5, the Greyhawk Monstrous Compendium Appendix:

Quote:
Slow shadows, like shadows, are believed to be a race of long-dead people cursed to madness and a split existence on the Prime and Negative Material planes... Sages speculate that shadows and slow shadows, when they lived, were bitter enemies. Their cruel, wicked ways and constant warfare brought down a terrible curse upon both races. Now the two people continue their ancient battle, never dying, cursed to insanity, recruiting new shadows and slow shadows from the living.


What do we make of this? Are shadows and slow shadows the remnants of the ancient Suloise and Baklunish who died in the Twin Cataclysms? If so, which was which? Or were they a different group of bitter enemies, like the peoples of Sulm and Itar, or the githzerai and githyanki?

Of course, if shadows and slow shadows were the Baklunish and the Suel, what of the shadows descended from the accursed inhabitants of Veralos?

If you go with the cursed angle then not the Suel and Baklunish. They weren't cursed, just power mad and vengeful. The Flan would be a better choice in my opinion (and Veralos fulfills part of the story well), or some older peoples that pre-date all of them and that are lost to time (and they might not even be human, just humanoid).
