According to an apocryphal source, Shadow is a large moon orbiting a gas giant with such a high gravity that the libration point (Lagrange point) forms a stable "pirate point" a few hundred thousand kilometers from Shadow some three times per month, close enough even for aerospace fighters and small craft to make the trip. The system's sun is only a slightly larger star in Shadow's dark sky which is dominated by the gas giant. The world is in twilight most of the time, with no discernible day-night-cycle but strong polar lights, and has surface temperatures between 80 and 160 degrees centigrade below zero. The same source also cited a surface gravity of almost 0.9g.

As of 3053, Shadow was apocryphally noted to have previously been a Clan Smoke Jaguar holding, but large areas had been ceded to the other invading Clans as a jump-off world on the way to the Inner Sphere with the provision that large-scale live fire exercises could be carried out there before troops embarked on the year-long journey.
