Igris (이그리트, Ygritte) is one of the first Shadows that Sung Jin-Woo acquired. He was initially protecting an empty throne in an Instant Dungeon where Jin-Woo was doing his Job Quest in the Job Change Quest Dungeon.

After two failed attempts of Shadow Extraction, Sung Jin-Woo convinced him to protect him instead of protecting an Empty throne, obtaining him as a Knight Grade Shadow.

During or briefly before the Monarch's War Arc, Igris evolved into Marshal Grade, the same grade as Beru. After becoming a Marshal Grade Shadow, he was nicknamed Knight of Death.[4]

See Blood-Red Commander Igris for his Original form.


Igris resembles his original appearance, that of having a full body knight armor, a long cape, and a helmet with a long-hair like ornament. Just like other shadows, his body is clad in darkness and white-blue light seethes from his eyes. He is also shrouded by dark and bright blue light around him, depicting the characteristics of a shadow.


Igris is chivalrous and loyal. When fighting with an unarmed Jin-Woo, seeing how he discarded his weapons and in response, Igris also discarded his weapons, i.e. his Long Sword and Cape.

Igris is also very loyal to whom he serves as he still protects a throne with no King, in accordance to his job. When he became a Shadow of Sung Jin-Woo, despite being stronger than him, he always kneels and shows great respect to his current Lord. He also comically brings the head of every enemy he killed back to Sung Jin-Woo, then proceeding to kneel.

Jin-Woo only wryly smiled at this eccentric act and asks Igris to stop it as even Iron started to copy his behavior.

It is noted that Igris is not simply a weapon or a monster. He also possess complex emotions such as determination and nervousness as seen when he asks for Jin-Woo's permission to advance his level.


  • Extreme Speed
  • Extreme Strength
  • Dominator's Touch - The ability to manipulate objects by hand.It is noted that such an ability can only be used by Rulers.
  • Regeneration - As long as Jin-Woo has sufficient mana, the shadows able to regenerate their damaged/destroyed parts very quickly.
