"Whoa, whoa, whoa. Where you going? We agreed no more triad reports, not until my plan succeeds. I can't be associated with anymore failed attempts."
Cole Turner to the shadow.[src]

The Shadow Demon was a mysterious entity that served as a personal messenger between Upper-Level demons and their superiors. It first served Belthazor while he was hired by The Triad, and later fullfilled a similar role for Sykes as he worked for The Source of All Evil.


During his time working for The Triad, Cole often used the shadow as a messenger. However, the shadow also had a mind of its own and even tried to report things to The Triad when Cole was against it.

The same shadow later worked with Sykes after Cole switched sides and reported to The Source of All Evil instead. Sykes also used the shadow to stand guard as he lured a witch into a trap. Leo caught glimpse of the shadow and managed to save her.
