The Shade's lantern is an object that serves a minor role in Requiem for the Forgotten Shadow.
The Shade's lantern has golden detailing with red and purple jewels.
For the one containing the candle, it has a yellow glass over the candle. (The name is referred to as "the candle")
For the lantern that contains the Bolide Shard, it has a pinkish-purple glass over the object. (Apparently, this is the one that is called the Shade's lantern).
The Sun and Moon Goddess created the Shade's lantern to capture the Shadow God's shadow when it has left its owner. Unable to destroy the shadow, the Maiden Goddess tore him into pieces, sending each part to a common person of Anaben.
It was unknown of what had happened with the Shade's lantern, but it was possible that it was disassembled or was destroyed. The Brotherhood used a lantern (but one with a candle inside instead of the Bolide Shard) that has the same abilities as the Shade's lantern. Later, the Detective needed to collect the pieces to assemble the lantern once more. Whenever it was meant to be the same lantern or not, or the one the Detective build was a new lantern, the answer remains unknown.

Fall of the Shadow God (from Requiem for the Forgotten Shadow)
Centuries ago, the Shadow God lived, deeply in love with the Maiden Goddess. However, having two sides to his soul, they fought each other relentlessly. One night, his Shadow whispered to him: 'If you become strong enough, you will never have to return to the Moon'. The Shadow God ignored the evil whispers for as long as he could, but something terrible happened: he lost his own shadow. Terrified, he came to the Maiden Goddess looking for help, but as time passed, he felt his powers growing weak, even speaking was a tiresome task. And so, the Maiden Goddess called for her two sisters, the Sun and the Moon Goddesses. They searched for his Shadow day and night, and when they finally faced him, they were almost obliterated by his powers. Not long after, the divine sisters devised a plan: The Sun and Moon Goddesses created the Shade's lantern, which was able to consume the Shadow. Unable to destroy him, the Maiden Goddess used the magic glass staff and tore him to pieces, hiding each part inside a common person of Anaben. The threat was gone, but now the Maiden Goddess' beloved was no more than a husk.
