|“||You may call me Shade. It's not my last name, but it will do.||”|
In September 2012, Shade lied to Hypatia Vex to corroborate Kit Herondale's story that he was on business from Barnabas Hale. He took Kit and the Blackthorn twins Ty and Livvy into his tent and activated the aletheia crystal they found at Blackthorn Hall. He conversed with them while he worked and revealed that he knew Kit was the lost Herondale. He spoke of the Herondales as if he knew some of them in the past.
Shade hides his true appearance by wearing a massive robe, along with a cloak, gloves, a hood, and a mask beneath. Beneath his covers, Shade also hides his warlock mark: his green skin.
