Powers and Abilities
It is very powerful, even more than Rubilax, only five elements. Has the power to steal a person's shadow, which appears to represent the target's soul, and turns them into a ghoul. However, she is unable to do this if the target lacks any darkness in their heart. Once Percedal is returned to his body, though, she is left behind, ignored by her guardian. In the closing scenes, however, an unknown figure picks her up.
Unlike Rubilax's mergers where he takes control of his host's body, Umbridge merely manipulates Wagnar's mind. The latter is convinced to be crazy in love with Shadowfang and he is now called Vampyro.
Shadowfang did not take Vampyro's body because she is looking for a body of a pretty woman. She wants to apply to her victim a process that will remove the soul from her body in order to put her own. So, even if she does not find her demon body, at least she will no longer be a prisoner of the ring.

Quickly, Umbridge was completely immobilized by her hair that was tangled up everywhere.
Once Shadowfang was sentenced to serve him, Armand-Louis was able to give the villagers their normal appearance. Knowing that Shadowfang would obey only him, he ordered his son Isletate to put the ring in a safe place in the crypt when he died. Thus, she could not take possession of someone's body.
