The Shadows of Calus were an elite team of Loyalist warriors in the service of Emperor Calus, composed of individuals from various civilizations who were recruited by Calus during his exile. In the days immediately before the Red Legion set out to the Solar System to wipe out the Guardians, Calus deployed his Shadows to assassinate the various conspirators behind the coup that deposed him. While the Shadows succeeded in eliminating nearly everyone on Calus's hit list except Caiatl, Umun'arath, Otzot (additionally referenced during Insight terminus strike), The Consul and Dominus Ghaul, none of them survived their mission. Calus is now auditioning Guardians to replace them.
