You might want to specify what edition you're talking about.

"These things also I have observed: that knowledge of our world is
to be nurtured like a precious flower, for it is the most precious
thing we have. Wherefore guard the word written and heed
words unwritten and set them down ere they fade . . . Learn
then, well, the arts of reading, writing, and listening true, and they
will lead you to the greatest art of all: understanding."

3e/3.5: Shade is a template that adds +2 to the base creatures CR.
4e Core: Shade is a template that can be added to any Humanoid creature of 11th level or higher. Monsters gain the Elite entry and add that to their XP bonus.
4E (Heroes of Shadow) allow for the race of Shades, so no level bonus.
5E: nothing yet that isn't the monster "Shade", which is a CR 1/4 (100 XP)

4E Realms = Great Taste, Less Filling.
