ShadeClan is a Clan that call the thick pine forest their home. Within this forest lies some of the oldest trees of the forest, and some of the largest. The canopies are thick and let little very light through. Only during the coldest leaf-bares does the forest floor see the sunlight and even then, it's only sparingly. The northern edges of the territory lay on the base of a mountain. Around here the woods thin out, but, not many cats venture there as many twolegs are seen around the area with their stable tents and weapons. Towards the border with NightClan there is a small river, which holds a bounty of fish. The two Clans are often fighting over custody of said river because of its rich source of prey all year round.

The cats of ShadeClan are known for their large size and generally heavy builds. This body type allows them to fight strong battles against the rival Clans, and survive the challenges that their territory gives. Over the years, they have slowly lost the need for small thin builds as the forest is too thick to chase prey through. Dark colours such as solid black and brown tabbies are a common sight in ShadeClan, due to the camouflage these pelt colours offer. Also, as the Clan name suggests, these cats generally are more active during twilight and the night.

ShadeClan was founded by Eiríkr, a former loner that lived on the land before the Clans came to be. Since then, unlike the other Clans, ShadeClan has adopted the tradition of leader's picking their first born child to succeed them instead of their deputies. Due to this, Erikr's bloodline still leads the Clan in its current day and has affected much of how the Clan is directed and kept as well.
