Moved to the rank of Arch-Magi after the Battle of Fallen Oak, Shale now resides in the Pyreneum of Masagar working closely with Arch Magi Lokar on his dealings with the Aether. Specifically, Shale acts as a kind-of intelligence gathering liaison between agents in the field and the few Magi let in on the secrets of the Aether Fiends.
In her coordination role, she spends much of her time researching the very fringes of knowledge of the Aether. She has other duties that include overseeing emergency responses to disasters and uprisingings, her past abilities as a leader having been noted. Lokar has groomed Shale into a powerful, adept and agile leader but her true usefulness is still her ability to carefully deliberate in light of a crisis. She is, without a doubt, one of the most brilliant Magi of this age.
