Shade was originally known as Gerrod Tezerenee. Son of Barakas Tezerenee and Lady Alcia. He was one of the most proficient sorcerers of the clan Tezerenee. Dark hair hung down slightly on an aristocratic visage that took greatly from his mother's side. He was slim when compared to other Tezerenee.  In the great Vraad exodus one of his first assignments was to get Dru Zeree to the Tezerenee castle, a task he couldn't accomplish for the former was lost in the Void when he tried to find him. Another failed assignment was to look after the progress of his brother Rendel, the one in charge of the ka travel for the Dragonrealm, because Rendel crossed to the Dragonrealm earlier than expected. All this put him in a dire situation, he was left behind at the exodus to look for Sharissa Zeree. He eventually managed to cross to the Dragonrealm not by ka travel but by physical travel in the rift between worlds, by doing so he was able to exist as a Vraad and not a dragon.
