The Shadowguard are ethereals who have heeded the call of the Void and become Void ethereals. They are related to the Ethereum. They were drawn to Mac'Aree on Argus by the Void energies of the naaru . They stormed the Seat of the Triumvirate and established a base named Shadowguard Incursion. There, they used Void harvesters to call the Void to Mac'Aree, but they were stopped before they could plunge the entire city into shadow and cause all of Argus to fall to darkness. The darkness they cultivated manifested into crystals of pure void, a resource the Shadowguard covetted. The Shadowguard also succeeded at creating Void-infused Broken whose mind did not fall into madness. Shadowguard Abyss Callers attempted to summon another void lord through the Umbral Locus, but their ritual was interrupted.
Another Void ethereal named stood in opposition to them. He had hoped to find more ethereals among the Shadowguard who possessed the necessary strength of mind to resist the Void, and was disappointed to find such an utter lack of resistance.
Notes and trivia

- Adjectives used to describe the Shadowguard's various Void creatures include "bound" and "enthralled".
Since Nezhar's title is "viceroy", this means that he is ruling in the name of another. The true leader of the Shadowguard is unknown, or it might've been since he is called the "Ethereum-Lord of the Shadowguard".
