"Metatron: You invented souls! Souls! Try shining a light on that. How did that make you feel? Chuck: Nauseous."
― God and Metatron (Supernatural)

The ability to create souls, the incorporeal and immortal essences of people, living things, or objects. Sub-power of Creation and Soul Manipulation. Opposite to Soul Destruction.

Also Called

  • Flame of Anor/Imperishable/Secret Fire (The Silmarillion)


User can create souls: person's essence, their hopes, their dreams, their emotions, their will, and their sense of humanity. They can construct another's sense of self with nothing but their own imagination or inevitably allow their creation to develop to their own sense of self. The souls cannot be destroyed by conventional methods, but might still be able to be damaged or absorbed by other beings.




  • Though this power allows the user to create souls of various entities, it does not allow the user to destroy their created souls.
  • May be limited to creating only one soul.
  • Once a soul develops its own sense of self it may start to refrain control from the user who created it.
  • Special entities or artifacts may be able to destroy the created souls.
  • Weak against Essence Removal and Soul Destruction.
  • May require a body for the soul to be put in, either by finding an existing body or via Body Creation.
