John is one of the side protagonists in the Shadows House series and the shadow living under the care of the Living Face Shaun. John is known to be quite friendly with everyone and very openminded. Unlike many shadows he treats Shaun with respect and even offers to wear glasses so that Shaun can be seen while wearing his. Like Kate and Emilico John and Shaun are polar opposites. John is a muscleheaded extrovert while Shaun is a thoughtful introvert. Despite this the two are very good friends and John cares for his face immensely.
