At first it was not a sound, but the mere shadow of one.
There was a mere shadow of color at the V in her legs.

These were all mere shadows, however, of what was yet to come.
He was the mere pale shadow of a King at all times.
Its activity suddenly seemed to cease, and the organization became a mere shadow of itself.
Except for myself, I think all our people are mere shadows in the background to him.
