"I'm...a mud puppet? It can't be. Help...Help me!"
―Lieutenant Colonel Shadam's final words before his death.[src]

Lieutenant Colonel Shadam (シャダム中佐 Shadamu Chūsa), also known as Commander Shadam, was the leader of the Gorma Triumvirate, working alongside Lieutenant Colonel Gara and Major Zydos. He became the true main antagonist and final threat of Gosei Sentai Dairanger. He was also the father of Kou of the Howling New Star and Akomaru.

Character History


Six-thousand years ago, Shadam was the leader of a major offensive by the Gorma Tribe against the Dai Tribe, leading them against their qi rivals in battle after battle. Both sides were ultimately wiped out, but Shadam created insurance for the future: creating clay dolls in the forms of all of the major Gorma faction and using their memories to reform the tribe and have them wait until their time of return was upon them. Shockingly, the real Shadam ultimately created a doll of himself, complete with all of his ambitions and desires for power; this Shadam would be the one the modern Dairangers would face throughout their entire war with the Gorma at the end of the 20th century.

Shadam's life is one of frustrated dreams and power is his only comfort. Rising higher in rank his only goal. He wanted to become the 16th Gorma Emperor, deposing of the competition in anyway possible. Shadam can also assume an alternate fighting form, with a mask that practically covers his face.

Shadam eventually realizes his dream and the power of the Gorma Emperor once he defeats General Tenpou and disposes of the previous one he resurrected and allows to live until his goal is achieved. Taking the Earth Shaking Jewel for himself, Shadam officially becomes Gorma XVI (ゴーマ16世 Gōma Ju-Roku-Sei). Tvicon.png TV STORY-Ep. 49: Iiit's the Final Decisive Battle

Gorma XVI intends to use the Great Earth Shaking Jewel to take over the world despite suffering its mind-warping effects, but he has the Dairangers to deal with. When Daijinryuu appeared, the Earthshaking Jewel leaves Shadam in order to appease Daijinryuu's wrath. After the Great Earthshaking Jewel leaves him, a maddened Shadam attempts to escape only to be encountered by Ryo in a one-way knife duel between them. Shadam loses and is stabbed on his own knife, revealing that he was actually a clay figure himself made long ago. Realizing this and crumbling to pieces, he begs a then-shocked Ryo to help him. Only a human eye ball remained among the pile of dust. Tvicon.png TV STORY-Final Ep.: Let's Goooo!
