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 Erikr, 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.
