Shame was made with love and care. He is soft spoken and easily intimidated, so he prefers to ghost into the background. His spine has been removed, in quite a violent manner, for reasons that he still doesn’t understand. Shame did nothing wrong. Needless to say, the impromptu surgery just made life worse for Shame. With his innards exposed and personal thoughts present, but obscured, Shame wonders if this feeling will ever dissipate. Now, Shame faces the wall because he knows, no matter what he does, you, too, will eventually reject him. One day, an external force tried to save Shame, but the mends did not make amends. The stitching was violent and warped his skin, making him even more deformed. Shame is still just as feeble as before, only now, he looks as crummy as he feels.
