In the original campaign, a type of Shade referred to as simply 'Shades', appear in a single scenario. They are similar to the Shades of Olympus, but are invisible to enemies and assist the player. Shades of Olympus appear in a Campaign scenario of The Titans expansion. They are able to kill Myth Units in a single hit, and disappear after attacking.
The dead of Greek mythology became shades, empty ghost-like shadows of their former selves. Hades' land of the dead was not necessarily a horrible place to be, but it was without honor or glory. If anything, shades were pitied more than they were feared.
