Shadis was a brutal, merciless barbarian warlord of history who ruled much of a continent of his home planet. Shortly after all who would oppose him were eliminated, Shadis choked to death on a piece of food, aided by his right-hand man, Xant, who would later come to be considered a deity. (NF - No Limits short story: "Redemption")

Information about Shadis comes from the visions of Eben Saxosus, and should be considered in that context.
