A shadow is a special type of mage that can conceal their presence and cuts off their trace of existence. Many people feared them because they are mostly spies, thieves, and assassins. These mages usually work for the Shadow Lodge, a mysterious quest lodge that even peacekeepers could not find it for centuries. Many people considered them to be worst type of mages.
The shadows also classified themselves with different ranks through letters. SSS and SS ranked mages working for the Shadow Lodge are the top two ranks. There are could be only about twenty mages that achieved SS or SSS rank in the land of Halnea because only a small percentage of the mages are shadows.
