Shades of Evil is Chapter 7 of Fire Emblem: Path of Radiance.
In order to complete this chapter you have to defeat all the enemies. Most of the enemies are knights, archers, and soldiers. In this chapter, Mia appears and Ike must talk to her in order to recruit her. Mia is a Level 6 Myrmidon.
Once you complete this chapter Greil gets into a fight with the Black Knight, and Ike comes to help, but Greil tells him to stay away. Ike hears that Greil was the one that taught the Black Knight how to fight. Eventually, Greil is wounded by Alondite (a sacred sword) in his chest. Ike is furious and wants to attack the Black Knight. Greil tells Ike to go to Gallia, and live a peaceful life there, but Ike has no such intentions.
