Shrouds are creatures that are commonly found the the mountains in Cridhe. They can copy any fabric or leather they sense. They crawl close to travelers disguised as clothing or blankets, then envelope them and dissolve them from the outside in. They cannot be killed with blades; when one is cut or torn, the pieces can grow and rejoin to form something the size of a blanket or a tent. If they aren't fully wrapped, they can be peeled off with fire. They were made from the lint of Haenish garments and dark magic in the tower by Sifter and Nazir's father, who thought they were creating an invisible cloak.
