Shrouds are useful items that allow you to gain an edge in an upcoming battle. They should only be used for difficult boss battles and later in the game, because they are hard to come by:

a) Deceptisol makes the leader invisible to the enemy. If you touch an enemy while under this effect, you will automatically gain a Preemptive Strike on the enemy. Note that there are exceptions (like boss battles).

b) Fortisol gives you Faith, Bravery and Haste for the next battle.

c) Aegisol gives you Protect, Shell, Veil and Vigilance for the next battle.

d) Ethersol completely recovers your TP gauge. Shrouds can only be used when not in battle. Press L1/LB to bring up the Shrouds menu, choose the one you want to use and press X.

Six people, from very different backgrounds, get thrown together in a series of tumultuous events. A Pulse fal'Cie (a demi-god) has been found in the seaside town of Bodhum, a place where the fates of everyone converge and the discovery sets in motion a chain of events that will change the world forever. An innocent fireworks display in the town soon turns nasty when government soldiers storm the peaceful celebration and commit everyone to the Purge (sending individuals "contaminated" by the Pulse fal'Cie into exile). This is where your story and legend begins. Can you fight fate?
