The Chronicler of Lord Styx Shadow Shade The First words are always the hardest to describe Lord Styx Shade. He is a complicated man. Shade. Yes. His name is fitting to his nature and destiny because he is a man of many shades of men and a man of shadowy past. He is a thief, a scoundrel, a loyal friend, a villain and a hero. Well..a hero in certain situations. A lord of spies and a bastard cursed by dark shadow magic.
