KR:은월 romanja: Eun-wol) is one of the six Heroes who sealed away the Black Mage, and is part of the Pirate branch. Shade uses Knuckles as a primary weapon and Fox Marbles as a secondary weapon. He calls on the power of spirits for aid.
As one of the six heroes, he sacrificed his existence to prepare for the seal to seal away the Black Mage. However, nobody remembers his existence due to the nature of the seal. He later mysteriously finds himself in Vulpes of Grandis, where he is aided by a young girl named Moonbeam.
During the final battle with the Black Mage, there were 6 brave heroes fighting to protect Maple World. Of the 6, one hero stepped forward to perform the ultimate sacrifice to seal away the Black Mage. After successfully sealing away the Black Mage, he was cursed and banished to the world of Vulpes, where he has awoken centuries later.
Shade returns to Victoria Island with the help of the Pointy-Ear Foxes and decides to try to find his friends that should now be awake in the world.
When Shade has found out all of his friends don't remember him, he returns to see if Moonbeam and his friends remember what his name is. It turns out they forgot about him. He then returns to Henesys only to discover that everyone there has forgotten about him as well. When he finds this out he goes to the Temple of Time to see the seal of the Black Mage and finds the seal has been broken.
His starting ability Spirit Bond makes him recover 1% of his Max HP for every attack landed on an enemy. Also it gives him a perfect (100%) of Stance activating and a 30% damage reduction on all attacks. Also given is the skill Fox Trot that teleports Shade a set distance or to the closest enemy by default. 2nd job gives him Back Step that propels him backwards a great distance. 3rd job gives Shade the passive skill Summon Other Spirit, that auto revives him after death and auto buffs after the cool down. 4th job has his Critical Rate and Damage, Boss and Monster Defense ignore stats improved drastically with passive skills and gives Shade his only Support Buffs; Spirit Ward that blocks against attacks/debuffs and the popular Maple Warrior. Also 4th job gives Soul Splitter that rips the souls of enemies you hit with it. The souls share the same HP as the hit enemies but take 50% less damage. However they give bonus EXP if you kill the enemy's soul or original body. Combined with the HP leaching Death Mark and you'll be at full health in no time
His Link Skill is Close Call, giving him a 5% (10% for higher levels) to survive and ignore damage from an attack that would kill him. His Character Card gives Min/Max Critical Damage by 1%, 2%, 3%, and 5% on Levels 30, 60, 100, and 200 in order when equipped.
With Spirit Bond, Shade can take most attacks without worry. Shade has no active buffs besides Maple Warrior (excluding active Hyper Skills), so if he does fall in battle, he will only have to recast that. However, attack skills that heal him from attacking enemies have a long cool down time. Unless you're quick on your keys with Fox Trot or Back Step you'll find that you'll die without them.
Second job advancement is given during Shade's quest chain where he arrives in Henesys.
Third job advancement occurs as a quest chain that appears upon reaching level 60. You must be in a map that allows teleportation.
