The spell animates the caster's shadow, which roughly takes the form of several dragons and proceeds to attack the shadows of the designated opponents. The shadow-creatures are able to bite out parts of the target's shadow, and damage taken by the shadow is immediately reflected on the target's physical body as well. Methods which make one's shadow disappear (such as the Lighting spell) can be used as a defensive measure.
