Guess. Initially animals from their home world. When they needed a more intelligent CPU other First Ones like the Vorlons. There could be a good reason the eternal war started.
Interesting thought that never even occurred to me. I do seem to recall that I got the impression (not sure wether it's an accurate one) that the Shadows were at least slightly older than the Vorlon.

Not sure it makes sense that they used Vorlon though, since they had a "divorced parents fighting over how to raise the kids" relationship, but, definitely an interesting thought
