The Shade Demons are ghostly, non-speaking, shadowy, dragon-like beings that operate as foot soldiers for The Dark Dragon. Though neither particularly strong, intelligent, nor resilient, their basic power of numbers allow them to be a regular challenge. Due to their shadowy composition, they are susceptible to light.
The strength of the Shade Demons seems to vary from time to time. In some instances, they are strong enough to knock solid creatures down when charging; however, in other instances, they are often defeated with a single blow.
