|~ Slim Shady's most famous line, from the song "My Name Is".|
Slim Shady is a fictional character created by rap musician Eminem who appears as the villainous main protagonist of the rapper's albums The Slim Shady LP and The Marshall Mathers LP. He is a character created to offend as many people as possible.
He is played by Marshall Mathers himself, better known as Eminem, being the best known alter-ego of the famous rapper.
Slim was originally a short, skinny, and pale man. With bright blond short hair. He usually had some sort of crazed grin. He also had several tattoos on his arms. He frequently wore a completely white T-shirt with blue jeans. Although, in certain videos he is seen wearing a jacket. He eventually began getting brown hair and soon a short beard. He began wearing grey hoodies rather than plain white shirts. On "Music To Be Murdered By" he is shown wearing a suit. In his earlier days he was also shown wearing a blue (occasionally orange) jumpsuit and a white cap.
Slim is usually depicted as a violent, sociopathic criminal. He has a very large ego. He also seems to not have any sense of right-or-wrong. Despite this, in "Stan" he seems visibly disturbed by His crazed fan's letters. He is also addicted to drugs. He does seem to genuinely care for his daughter, however. He is also very perverted with it even being mentioned that he possibly committed rape.
Slim came from a abusive and toxic household, much like Marshall Mathers. He was also frequently bullied and picked on, especially by a kid named DeAngelo Bailey. Slim was best friends with young Marshall at a young age due to the two's fondness of rap. They decided to create a rap group named "Eminem". Slim ended up being picked up by a studio and abandoning Marshall to enjoy fame. This is also where he met his girlfriend Kim. However, this is also where he would begin his criminal reign. He would make his way into the world of organized crime. He would hire several "arms" to assist him during his crimes. He soon forms his own gang. He also becomes a father to his daughter, Hailie.
