Langdon Shaw is the younger son of newspaper magnate Henry Shaw Sr., Langdon Shaw is an excitable young man with a proclivity for wild ideas. He is frustrated by living in his elder brother’s shadow (WFT).

Langdon believes the Barebones about the existence of witches, and wants his father's paper to run a story attributing the recent destruction in the city to witchcraft. Langdon appears to have a tendency to drink too much. When his elder brother is killed by an obscurial, Langdon's reaction is excitement about evidence of witches. Together with his father and newspaper staff, Langdon witnesses the final destructive episode of Credence Barebone's obscurial (WFT).
