"Sorry, m'lord I don't keep track of your "pets""
—General Shade Tail talking to Lord Tedd about Nioi

General Shade Tail is Grace's alternate (although Dan claims he is not in the strictest sense)[1] in the Alpha Dimension. In the alpha dimension, the original Grace Sciuridae did not die, so her blood was not used to replace the blood of the naturally strong male who was chosen to contribute to the creation of Shade Tail.

General Shade Tail has only made four appearances in the story, once in the final chapter of the Sister story arc in a screenshot,[2] and again in the second chapter of the Painted Black story arc while training.[3] Nioi believes he is corrupting Lord Tedd, and is working to defeat him.[4]
