Jackie Chan's niece, who after being the victim of Drago's spell, ended up in Meridian and partially transformed into her Queen of the Shadowkhan persona. Circumstances (and Nerissa's manipulations) forced her to join Nerissa's Knights of Vengeance.
Jade gives Nerissa a fake name instead of her real one.
She immediately realized that something is up when Nerissa doesn’t do a You Have Failed Me to the Knights after the Guardians defeat them (instead being calm and rational), since previous villains have been quick to blame their underlings for failure, and defeat usually prompts anger and frustration first.
Evil Costume Switch: After being captured, some shadows (possibly controlled by the Queen) cover her and replace her wannabe spy outfit with a set of shinobi robes. She later makes a point creating a makeshift bandanna out of some orange cloth in order to at least partially replicate her original outfit (the orange hoody).
Well-Intentioned Extremist: Believes herself to be this, but seems to honestly believe that the only way the universe can be saved from conflict and evil is via undying loyalty to her and her alone.
Xanatos Speed Chess: Quickly restructures her plans when new factors appear, like telling the rebels Jade is a shapeshifter to force her into joining the Knights, or planning to take Jade’s powers as well as Elyon’s.
Handicapped Badass/Brought Down to Badass: He lost some of his muscle mass after he was sent into the Abyss of Shadows, but is still easily capable of tiring out Frost without the brute laying a hand on him.
This guy was really pushing Jade's buttons. Either he was a hero of this… place or thought himself to be one; either way, she never had encountered someone so shortsighted. Maybe Jackie followed a very strict code of morals and tried to drill that into her, but at least he was not that intolerant to others that didn't follow his beliefs. Even with Viper, he was at most annoyed by her lifestyle than truly condemning her, not to mention he and Uncle gave Tohru a chance when others, even Jade herself at the time, were not that forgiving. And of course, there was Jackie's infinite patience when dealing with her misdeeds.
Tempting Fate: After Caleb hears that Frost, Gargoyle and Sandpit are still at large (in addition to Tracker), he wonders what would happen next, like Raythor returning from the Abyss of Shadows (he does), or Phobos, Cedric and Miranda escaping from the Infinite City, he hears the alarms from Nerissa breaking “Kage” and Miranda out. He immediately lampshades this as he hurries to the prison:
Nice Job Breaking It, Hero: The fact that she almost killed Jade is a prime factor that the Queen of the Shadowkhan is using to keep Jade from trying to defect.
Psychoactive Powers: Himerish states that her emotional state can affect her powers, and that anger makes them stronger and harder to control.
Unskilled, but Strong: She has a lot of power, but she has a hard time controlling it as of the time of this postage, due to her brother only covering how to access the energy, not how to properly utilize it.
Fantastic Racism: Has a scarily extreme loathing of shapeshifters, and he isn’t afraid to let others know it. Drake lampshades this, and feels that Kur’s attitude is not something that should be endorsed.
He led a purge of shapeshifters during Phobos's reign, and is directly responsible for the death of Miranda's parents.
Eviler than Thou: Jade feels this way about Phobos when she mentally compares him to Shendu, noting that while they both oppressed their subjects, Shendu was a draconic Demon Sorcerer, unlike Phobos, whose subjects were the same species, meaning he didn't even have Fantastic Racism as an excuse for his cruelty.
Hannibal Lecture: Phobos delivers one to Caleb, telling him that it was the Guradians and Elyon who defeated him, not the Rebellion, which he considers a bunch of armed peasants.
Shut Up, Hannibal!: Vathek then points out that Phobos was pretty much dethroned by a group of teenage girls, causing everybody there to laugh at him
Even Evil Has Loved Ones: He seems to have at least some love for his son, as he tried to rescue Drago from banishment (though Drago betrayed him).
Eviler than Thou: Shendu ends up on the “thou” end of this when Jade mentally compares him to Phobos, noting that while they both oppressed their subjects, Shendu was a draconic Demon Sorcerer, unlike Phobos, whose subjects were the same species, meaning he didn't even have Fantastic Racism as an excuse for his cruelty.
