Shining Force CD
Background[edit | edit source]
Shade is the son of Hans from Shining Force: The Legacy of Great Intention. Ruce(who most likely knew Shade because their fathers are both Guardiana soldiers and veterans of the war against Runefaust) recruited him for an expedition into Cypress to save Queen Anri and the captured Guardiana soldiers.
Shade later helped rescue Queen Anri when she was kidnapped at Prince Nick's coronation. On this mission he mentions that his mother is dead; it is suggested that her death occurred shortly before the events of Shining Force Gaiden/Shining Force CD Book 1.
Personality[edit | edit source]
Little is known about what Shade is like, but he seems to be thoughtful and sympathetic by nature. He also seems to have inherited his father's pacifist outlook to at least some extent.
Strategy[edit | edit source]
Shade generally has the highest HP of the four bow-users of Shining Force CD, but the lowest Attack. Since archers give more hits than they receive, this arguably makes Shade the weakest bow-user in the game.
However, as he approaches level 20 promoted his stats become comparable to Stock and Chester, and he is the only archer you can use in Book 4, so it may be a good idea to use him throughout Shining Force CD nonetheless. And it is easier to keep Shade up to speed with the rest of the party than it is for Stock to catch up when he joins.
