Shade was a high-level S.H.I.E.L.D. agent at the time surrounding the collapse of S.H.I.E.L.D. and the reemergence of HYDRA. She was one of five agents loyal to S.H.I.E.L.D. whom Agent Victoria Hand trusted and relied upon. She was present at The Hub when Agent Hand was defending it from the HYDRA threat within. Shade was rarely away from her superior's side during this dangerous time. Despite this, she did not seemingly accompany Hand and Ward as they transferred Garrett to the Fridge, and would therefore have survived that incident.
