A mirrored image or reflection.
A phantom; a ghost.
To cast a shadow on; shade
To follow, especially in secret; trail
Shades and shadows are all threw the Fever series. Where do they come from? What if hey are from the cursed silvers? Reflections left behind of a immage? The shadow of what was reflected?
In the Bloodrush book, the journal entry....
"I fallowed him again today, feeling like a judas the while time.......................................I fallowed, slinking form one alcove to the next...................But today--unlike the other morning i tailed him---"
What if the shades/shadows are cursed bits and pieces of poeples reflections in the cursed silvers?
Could Barrons 8 be "reflections" of him?
Mirror inages or reflections would not have what a human has, soul, heart, ect.....just a cast shadow of themselves.
Sorta like Uk "pouring" his darness into the BOOk. What part of him was the darkness, is shadow, shade, what?
Somewhere in the mist o' time
a Fever rages in a Highlander "mine"~~
Dual breath in a Druid born
An Immortal lad of a Keltar lore~~
Souls of the present meet the soul of past
No canceling out of the sexy extra large Keltar lad~~
Two of his kind, one stays behind
in the past and in a present kin~~
I'm trying to find A missing Keltar "Mine"
Oh Dageus wherefor are though my friend?
I just have a few comments. The Omega isn't the second, that would be the Beta. Omega is the last letter in the Greek alphabet and in a wolf pack is the weakest, worst, or scapegoat of the pack. This would go along with how much Barrons seems to dispise himself.
I like the shade theory, but I've always thought that the shades were the shadows of the Unseelie. In Darkfever it's mentioned when Mac is in the warehouse that the Unseelie cast no shadows on the ground. Perhaps they achieved lives of their own? Hence, why the shades devour life, because they don't have one, just a sort of jesture of a life. Or maybe to kill a shade you have to kill its 'owner'. Allmost makes you wonder going with this train of thought who's shadow it is outside the bookstore.
"She couldn't possibly be a null. They're mythical"
"So you say, as are many things, aren't they Jericho"
I always thought the mythical reference was to the book, but what if she's referring to Barrons? That he's mythical?
What would that make him?
At the time of the Pyramid Texts, Atum became identified with Re. As Atum-Re, he was connected to the Bennu bird (the phoenix).
The Bennu was considered the ďsoulĒ of the god Atum,
From New World Encyclopedia
In ancient Egypt, Atum (alternatively spelled Tem, Temu, Tum, and Atem) was one of the early gods of Egyptian mythology, associated with creation and the Ennead (nine deities) of Heliopolis. With a name whose etymology denotes "completion" or "ultimacy," Atum was thought to represent both the self-engendering origin of the cosmos as well as the setting sun.
Though he was eventually displaced by other solar/creator deities (including Ra and Amun), he remained an important part of the Egyptian mythic corpus (in general) and the royal cult (in specific).
In the archaic Egyptian pantheon, Atum was the chief god in the Ennead (nine deities) of Heliopolis (the capital of the Lower Kingdom).
Atum's creative nature has two sides to it, however, because Atum can be seen as the one who completes everything and finishes everything. In this sense he is the uncreator as well as the creator. Thus, in the Book of the Dead, Atum states that at the end of the world he will destroy everything that he has made and return to the form of the primeval serpent (BD 175).
In later, more nuanced understandings, the god was seen to represent the nexus between earth and sun, by personifying the solar disc in the process of rising and setting. The separateness of these two instances led to a commensurate division of Atum, with the rising sun coming to be seen as a youthful version of the god (named either Nefertum (literally meaning young Atum or Khepri), and the setting sun becoming an elderly version of the god. samhain/beltane??
