The Garleans' forebears were once humble farmers who made their home among the sun-drenched fields of southern Ilsabard. That was, until they were driven from this paradise by invaders wielding arcane magicks. Forced north into the frigid mountains, the survivors sought a means to tap into the reservoir of aether otherwise closed to them. A daring few found their answer within the void, binding themselves to its creatures to gain verboten power─power fed by the souls of the slain. Once more they took up their scythes, this time to reap a crimson harvest.

Soul Gauge and Shroud Gauge
When you learn the trait Soul Gauge, the Soul Gauge will be displayed, indicating the number of Souls (red) you have accumulated.
Souls are accumulated upon executing Reaper's basic combo weaponskills and by defeating enemies who fall under the effects of Death's Design from the action Shadow of Death or Whorl of Death. Souls can be used to execute Blood Stalk, Grim Swathe (acquired at level 55), and Gluttony (acquired at level 76).
Upon learning the trait Shroud Gauge, the Shroud Gauge will be displayed, indicating the number of Shrouds (blue) you have accumulated.
Shrouds are acquired by executing certain weaponskills, and can be used to execute Enshroud.
When you learn the trait Shroud Gauge, the duration of Enshrouded and the stacks of Lemure Shroud will be displayed. Lemure Shroud stacks can be used to execute several actions such as Void Reaping and Communio (acquired at level 90).
When you learn the trait Enhanced Shroud, Void Shroud will be gained when stacks of Lemure Shroud are used. These can be used to execute several actions such as Lemure's Slice and Lemure's Scythe.
