Shade was in his throne room, located in the heart of the Realm of Shadow. He had recently been reawakened, being called by Death to take up the duties he had been born to do. Now he was waiting for orders from Death on who to eliminate in the fastest way possible. That was his job, the one thing he knew how to do, and he was the undisputed best at his job. As such, he had underlings, only a few, hand-selected and trained for eons to be his minions.
