Shade concept art by Juan Ramirez

Shades are the resurrected corpses of dead sorcerors and wizards brought back to life by the dream of unlife. These liches hover over the ground and can cast the deadly Dispersal Dream with precise skill.

The Fallen Lords used the shades as lieutenants and as conduits for their own magical powers during the Great War. Some of the most notable shades were Phelot, Sinis and the former Avatara Mazzerin (the latter having been enslaved by The Watcher for added irony, due to their rivalry to each other).
