Background Information[]

  • Shade was featured only in the Mobius Timeline in The Complete Sonic Comic Encyclopedia, though an alternate version of her did appear in the Another Time, Another Place reality in a prologue to Sonic Chronicles.
  • Ian Flynn had planned to utilize Shade and the rest of the Nocturnus in the main comics, but has been left unable to do so due to the legal case launched by former head writer Ken Penders. Due to the similarities between the Nocturnus Clan and Dark Legion-and notably between Shade and Julie-Su-the Nocturnus are now off limits for use in the comics.
  • Prelate-JS bears a strong resemblance to Shade in her fully armored form.
