This is a question I had while watching Shadows House. In particular, I became a bit puzzled after some stuff was explained around the middle of the first season. This information was as follows:
The beginning stage of a shadow is a small fairy creature called a morph. They are shown the human form (the living dolls) and this leads to them copying it.
What leads to my confusion is as to whether they copy the human form they see exactly, or make their own original copy of "a human". There's an unanswered question of the time frame for these things, both for the living dolls and the shadows. If the shadows copy their living doll's form at this point, then what were the living dolls doing up until they met their master? It seemed like on Emiliko's first day, she was introduced to Kate. Thus, my confusion.
I want to know who is copying whom, but I hesitate asking this question, because I might be heading into spoiler territory, as the whole situation may be elaborated upon further down the line. On the other hand, I might just be making strange assumptions and raising invalid questions, so I might be supposed to know at this point whether the shadow or the living doll comes first.
