The Shade of Akama is the dark portion of Akama's soul that binds Akama to Illidan's service. The shade was a reflection of all of the wickedness and evil that resided within Akama's soul: his egoism, vanity, and the lust and greed for power and glory that shadowed his outer piety. Looking upon the shade, Akama knew that it was, in many ways, his true face, and the broken felt incomplete, weaker without the darker virtues the shade also embodied: Akama's power, pride, and ambition. It admires Illidan's singular vision and wants to annihilate all of its enemies, perhaps even Akama himself in time. The threat of the shade kept Akama in line. At Illidan's whim, the shade could be unleashed and devour Akama from within, binding him to Illidan's will. Through Akama's spiritual ties to his Ashtongue tribe, it would be able to bind them to Illidan as well. Therefore, Akama followed Illidan's orders not only for his own sake but also to keep his people safe.
During the battle in Niskara, Kayn Sunfury tells him to stay aboard the Fel Hammer and assist whenever means necessary. When they arrive at the fel barrier where Caria and Varedis await them, Kayn orders shade to use the Fel Hammer to open the way for them.
I have always admired Illidan's singular vision. After all, the annihilation of the Burning Legion is of paramount importance. Nothing else matters. Nothing else can be allowed to stand in our way. You will take me as your champion. In return, I will bring all of my knowledge and power to bear on the task at hand. In time, we will destroy all of our enemies... perhaps even Akama as well?
What do you need?
What is it you want?
Together, we can defeat the Burning Legion.
I have a plan for the Legion's downfall.
Krona ki cristorr!
One day, I will destroy you and those who follow you.
The day your control over me slips is the day you die.
I have all eternity to reap my revenge.
Why did you poke me?
Is this some strange custom of your people?
Your finger is puny, so it is more annoying than anything else.
Now you're just TRYING to annoy me. Mission accomplished.
