You think they would also use their voices. *Coming from the ME wiki* "Their hyoid bone, located in their throats, is particularly developed. This allows them to inflate their throats and produce vocal sounds outside of the human range" So the Shade should have a screech, similar to Banshee's, but that temporarily deafens the listener.
When the Reapers began harvesting various species throughout the galaxy to use as ground forces,the war-torn and resource scarce Rakhana provided an excellent site for the conversion of Drell into Shades. With these Reaper nano-tech enhancements,Shades are stronger and more agile than the species they reigned from,allowing them to be very flexible and acrobatic in physical combat. This agility is made even deadlier by the additional grafting of blade gauntlets onto their forearms,which they use to slash at enemies as well as focus pulses of biotic energyfor ranged combat. In addition to this already deadly arsenal,Shades are capable of ejecting an enhanced version of their original dermal neurotoxin in a gaseous form if opponents manage to get the jump on them in close-quarters,disorienting them with its hallucinogenic effects,allowing for an easy escape or ambush.
