Gender: Male (note that he is biologically sexless)
Powers: Can manipulate darkness; in other words, shadowmancy. He only speaks telepathically, but cannot read minds. Also, flight: that comes with the territory of being a dragon.
Personality: Prideful. Can get hostile when others threaten his ego, and even otherwise he is conniving and manipulative. Has zero sense of humor and tries to keep cool, although he's terrible at hiding his expressions. In a nutshell, he's hard to be friends with, but he's civil enough to have a few conversations with. He enjoys peace, stillness, and routine. Has a fear of dying.
Short History: Shade lived in a world where 13 dragons dwelled. Twelve of them controlled the elements, and the last one, called Elysius, was appointed their leader. All was well, for a time, until the Time Dragon betrayed the group. She convinced Shade to join her side--she told him that in a potential future, Elysius would cause their deaths.
Feeling spiteful, Shade manipulated Elysius into doing evil. Why? Because now Elysius wasn't potentially bad, but it was a reality, and Shade had justification to kill his leader. However, he failed in that. Shade only ended up cracking Elysius' soul in half, leading to a permanent psychosis-like state. Elysius did remember one thing, though: it was Shade's fault, and he wanted revenge.
