Shadow Walkers, or Halloween 2011 Dragons, were the Holiday species given out during Halloween of 2011. Unlike dragons of other holidays, Halloween dragons can be either male or female and do not have a scroll limit set for them. They are only capable of producing more Shadow Walker eggs during a certain period when Halloween is celebrated in October. They can still be bred to all year round, producing their partner's breed of egg.
The lack of a scroll limit for Halloween dragons was explained during one year's event by TJ09: "In the words of the pumpkin dragon's creator, Christmas and Valentine's Day are about giving, but Halloween is about grabbing as much candy for yourself as you can".
Shadow Walkers were the first dragons whose complete appearance is semi-transparent and were the first Halloween dragons to be given a Spriter's Alt. They have a unique hatching sequence where the egg gets more transparent as it hatches.
The implementation of biomes that year made the 2011 Halloween egg hunt much easier than past years, with small drops every 5 minutes and a large drop every full hour. The sprites were reviewed after TJ09's dragons grew up, and had their graphics updated as per the spriters' request.
Under the old Breed sort, these dragons sorted as "Halloween 2011 Dragon" on a user's scroll. As of August 14, 2016, they now sort using their Encyclopedia name.
Official Dragon DescriptionsEdit
"This egg fades into the shadows."
"The egg faded away completely; in its place there's a cute baby dragon. It doesn't seem to have much substance, though."

And look! It's grown its wings! It must be close to maturing."
"Shadow Walkers are a strange breed that possess the ability to slip between the planes of reality, becoming immaterial. This allows them to hide in the shadows, either hunting from the concealment of near invisibility or evading enemies. Though they become corporeal to mate or to eat, they spend most of the rest of their lives walking in the shadows. Shadow Walkers are wary creatures, though on dark Autumn evenings when the leaves fall to swirl in the chilly, rain damp air, they may be seen drifting out from the shadows."
