Ombrage (dubbed as Shadowfang in the English version) is a major Shushu trapped in a black-purple ring and recurring antagonist in Wakfu TV series. In the first season, she manages to take possession of her guardian Wagner, ruler of the Kingdom of the Village of the Four Legs, making him into a sort of vampire-demon. She is first seen in a ruined town, where she has taken over her guardian's spirit, who goes by the name Vampyro. After being defeated, her guardian swears never to fall for her tricks again. She returns in season 2 as an ally of Rubilax.
- Ring: Ombrage's ring is bordeaux and dark purple. She's on the fourth finger, and on the second finger of the right hand of Wagner.
- True form: First, Ombrage had high hair. But after losing her family, she became darker : her hair became black, she's paired with red roses, her skin is dark pink/bordeaux.
For her first appearance, she and her family have only a minor role close to figuration. They participate in an experiment organized by the twins Karibd and Silar to prove to Rushu that his demons are rusty in terms of torture.
In the year 25, her road took her to the Bourg des Katrepat where she used her power to steal the shadows of the villagers and turn them into ghouls as she wanted to use them as slaves to brush her huge hair. Unfortunately for her, Armand-Louis, the village ruler, was a formidable strategist. Unable to overcome her by force, he had traps placed throughout the village for them to attach to Ombrage’s hair. While she pursues him to catch him, her hair get caught in the traps. Quickly, Ombrage was completely immobilized by her hair that was tangled up everywhere.
Once Ombrage was sentenced to serve him, Armand-Louis was able to give the villagers their normal appearance. Knowing that Ombrage would obey only him, he ordered his son Isletate to put the ring in a safe place in the crypt when he died. Thus, she could not take possession of someone's body and she remained locked in the ring for many years after the death of Armand-Louis. When she finally did come in contact with an organic being, Ombrage was able to take possession of the body of the organic being. She then transferred into the body of a cat, then a human and finally in the body of a giant octopus. Thanks to the help of Goultard and Arty, Isletate managed to find the ring and lock it in again. Having defeated Ombrage, Isletate officially becomes his appointed shushu keeper and will train his descendant to be morally strong enough to become a shushu keeper.
The descendants of Four Legs did their job perfectly as a Shushu keeper; but unfortunately, hundreds of years later during the Wakfu era, goalkeeper Wagner could not resist Ombrage, who managed to possess him by seducing him. She did not take Vampyro's body because she was looking for the body of a pretty woman. She wants to apply her victim to a process that will remove the victim’s soul from their body in order to put her own. So that, even if she does not find her demon body, she will no longer be a prisoner of the ring.
Ombrage chose Evanglyne’s body for her soul. After capturing her using to her ghouls, she begins the magic ritual that will operate the transfer of the souls. Unfortunately for her, Yugo and his team are able to find Eva in the castle. Being very tough, they manage not only to free Evangelyne but are also able to defeat Vampyro who turns back into Wagner, the guardian of the Shushu.
He contacts Rushu to share his plan, but he has no confidence in him. Shading throws oil on the fire by revealing to Rushu that Rubilax has saved a human (Percedal). This act is considered unforgivable for any self-respecting shuhsu. Upon learning this, Rushu orders Rubilax to relinquish command and entrust him to Ombrage.
Is abandoned in the rubble because Wagner did not have time to recover it. Much later, a fisherman will find Ombrage ring hanging on his hook, which suggests that he must have taken possession of this unfortunate.
During the credits at the end of the episode ‘Fistful of Kamas’, it is shown that the fisherman is caught by a pirate. The pirate is holding Ombrage with one hand and the fisherman with the other, while Ombrage is heard protesting to the pirate. The pirate throws Ombrage away, remarking to the fisherman that he is more interested in kamas.
Powers & Abilites
It is very powerful, even more than Rubilax, only five elements. Has the power to steal a person's shadow, which appears to represent the target's soul, and turns them into a ghoul. However, she is unable to do this if the target lacks any darkness in their heart. Once Percedal is returned to his body, though, she is left behind, ignored by her guardian. In the closing scenes, however, an unknown figure picks her up.
Unlike Rubilax's mergers where he takes control of his host's body, Ombrage merely manipulates Wagner's mind. The latter is convinced to be crazy in love with Shadowfang and he is now called Vampyro.
Ombrage did not take Vampyro's body because she is looking for the body of a pretty woman. She wants to apply to her victim a process that will remove the soul from her body in order to put her own. So, even if she does not find her demon body, at least she will no longer be a prisoner of the ring.
- She and Anathar are the only Shushus who did not return to ShuShu realm.
