The power to contain and preserve one's soul into a single object which remotely controls the body. Technique of Personal Mastery. Combination of Puppet Mastery and Soul Projection.

Also Called

  • Soul Containment
  • Soul Shifting


Users of this power transfer their souls within an object to make combat and survivability much easier due to the separation of body and soul. Despite the fact that the user's soul is separated from their body, they will still think and move like normal. With this power, the user's body is nothing more than a puppet that is controlled by their soul. Because of this, it is a wise idea for them to place their soul in a durable object or within a place that their enemies can't get to.




  • Weak users need their souls to be nearby to keep their bodies animated.
  • The user will obviously die if the object containing the soul is destroyed.
  • If the user's soul and mind is separated too much, reaction time will be reduced.
  • The user's soul is still vulnerable to Clairvoyance.
  • Some users are unable to shift their souls back into their bodies.
  • Cannot defend against existence erasing powers.
  • Consumes a lot of energy.
