Base of Operations: The High Marches (assumed)
Number of Members: Unknown
While the Shadow Agents are believed to be mainly stationed in Northgate and the rest of the High Marches, there seems to be a number of smaller cells that operate throughout the world, though the exact locations are only known by the Shadow Agents, or so it is at least presumed. For all that is known, perhaps not even the Shadow Agents of lower rank in their Order know where their various headquarters are.
A Shadow Agent is skilled in the arts of hiding; favouring stealth over brute strength. They are trained to handle all sorts of small-weapons such as daggers, shortswords and hand-crossbows; a few even furnish the new gunpowder weaponry.
The Shadow Agent's greatest tool is his or her access to Shadow Magic. Trained in its arts, Shadow Agents use Shadow Magic mostly for concealment and trickery, more-so than for direct combat. A good Shadow Agent will ensure that combat is not necessary, though he/she will know how to defend him/herself should it be needed.
