"Find Agent Martin, we need a backchannel to the UN, someone we trust."
―Shade and Phil Coulson[src]

Shade is a S.H.I.E.L.D. agent assigned to the Hub. During the HYDRA Uprising she worked with Agent Victoria Hand to maintain the security of the Hub against HYDRA.


Agent of S.H.I.E.L.D.

HYDRA Uprising

Agent Shade was one of a few agents that Victoria Hand trusted when the HYDRA Uprising started. She was present in the Hub when Hand ordered the death of Coulson's Team and John Garrett because she believed they were all HYDRA sleeper agents.

When Agent Hand found Agents Antoine Triplett and Jemma Simmons and offered them a choice of being S.H.I.E.L.D. agents or pledging their loyalty to HYDRA, Shade witnessed as Triplett grabbed Agent Chaimson and held him at gunpoint, declaring his loyalty to S.H.I.E.L.D.[1]

Sometime later, as Phil Coulson commanded the Hub in Hand's absence, Agent Shade was told by him to contact a trustworthy agent as a back-door channel to the United Nations.[2]
