Shade is the image of the ideal soldier – disciplined, businesslike, serious and inhumanly determined. However, unlike other soldiers, she has a strong sense of justice and would never do evil even in the name of her own people. It was this trait that led Shade to betray her own emperor when he set out to take over the world.
Shade is not a very empathetic person, but she has a strong attachment to her people, the Nocturne echidnas. This attachment repeatedly led her to doubt and contemplate, but in the end her sense of justice was stronger.

Long before the events of the games, in the times of ancient civilizations, two belligerent echidnas clans took an advanced position in military technology and began to fight among themselves – Knuckles Clan and Nocturnus Clan. However, one day, due to the hasty actions of Pachacamac, the leader of the Knuckles Clan, the entire clan was destroyed and Nocturnus became the strongest clan in the world. With unlimited resources, the Nocturnus created Gizoids, an army of perfect, nearly invincible robots. For their incredible strength and brutal actions, one day, the entire clan was exiled by an unknown force into the Twilight Cage – a parallel dimension where the most powerful imperialistic nations from all worlds are exiled. In Twilight Cage, the Nocturnus subjugated the peoples of Kron, Zoah, N’rrgal and Voxai and began to develop teleportation technology to one day return home.
A few years later, during Sonic Chronicles: The Dark Brotherhood (2008) such technology was invented – special teleportation devices would allow a small band of Nocturnus to be flown in to steal the Master Emerald, which would allow a portal large enough to open for the entire Nocturnus Clan to return home. Imperator Ix of the Nocturnus personally led this detachment. His right hand was Procurator Shade. Once back on their home world, the Nocturnus found that about 4,000 years had passed since their exile, which meant that time in Twilight Cage went by much faster. Realizing this, the Nocturnus began a cautious operation to steal the Master Emerald. In the process, Shade meets Knuckles the Echidna, the last echidna on Earth, as well as the guardian of the Master Emerald. Shade defeats Knuckles in combat, but leaves him alive. Soon after, Nocturnus successfully steals Master Emerald, but are forced to face off in combat with Sonic the Hedgehog and his team, including Knuckles. Sonic’s team doesn’t stand a chance against Imperator Ix and he, along with Master Emerald, returns to Twilight Cage, screaming that he will take over the world. Shade notices that they didn’t plan to take over the world, for which Imperator Ix almost kills her. Fortunately, Knuckles saves Shade and she joins Sonic’s team.
Using the shuttle built by two geniuses, Dr. Ivo Robotnik aka Eggman and Miles “Tails” Prower, Sonic’s team along with Shade set off in pursuit of Imperator Ix in Twilight Cage. There, the team unites Kron, Zoah, N’rrgal and Voxai against the Imperator and by using the power of the seven Chaos Emeralds, defeat the tyrant. Back on Earth with Shade, the team discovers that Earth has been overrun by Dr. Eggman, who has taken advantage of the fact that time runs faster in Twilight Cage to develop his army.
