BackstoryEditShadrach Dingle was born on the 22 July 1948 to Jedediah Dingle and Peg Dingle. Shadrach dated a woman called Faith. However in early 1974, Faith had an affair with Shadders's brother Zak Dingle. Faith married Shadrach when she was in her early stages of pregnancy and let him think he was the father. In November 1974 Faith gave birth to a son Cain Dingle. Zak was Cain's real father, and Shadrach was not to know the truth for another 26 years.
Shadders was a drunkard and often used to come home and beat the hell out of Cain and his daughter Chas Dingle, especially at night. Cain suffered at the violent hands of Shadrach for years. In early 1987, Shadrach cheated on Faith by dating Shirley Pascoe. They had a daughter Gennie Pascoe in November 1987 whom Shirley put up for adoption.
In March 2000, Shadrach and his nephew Cain, who both thought they were father and son, turned up at the funeral of Butch Dingle. Another cousin, Charity Dingle attended the funeral. Shadrach became drunk and fell asleep in church. In 2001, Shadrach learned the truth that Cain was his nephew, as Zak had an affair with Shadrach's wife Faith 9 months before Cain was born. When Zak was away in South Africa, Shadrach tried to seduce Lisa Dingle, his sister in law.
