A bane to the universe, the mother's origins are lost to history the Mother of Shadows once attacked the Land of Giants with an army of her children and evil aliens in what was called the Darkness War. Among these allies were the Death Lords who seemed to have a connection to her kind. At the end both Ultraman Orion and Myth fought with her, as she tried to escape the battle in a wormhole. The commotion caused Orion and her servant to wind up in another dimension and Myth and herself in another Universe.
Heading to Earth she faced Ultraman Myth, the killer of many of her children, on the moon with an army of her offspring. Facing the Ultra who as at full power, the mother's children were all destroyed and she was defeated. The mother was sealed away but not destroyed. The giant of light saw that a large construct, the area which locals would refer to as the 'forbidden land', was built to maintain the barrier he made in haste.
