The ability to forge a soul into another object. Sub-power of Soul Manipulation. Variation of Symbolic Power Manifestation. Combination of Enhanced Forging and Soul Materialization.

Also Called

  • Soul Crafting
  • Soul Craftsmanship


The user can forge a soul into a corporeal form; shaped into an object that best personifies the person or be chosen by the user themselves either by imagination or enforced power of will. The object of power could be literally anything in existence or anything the user is aware of or can imagine in proportion to the power and properties of the users soul sometimes even having their own sentience.

Anything forged with this power will always have a highly specialized effect in addition to its normal function, for example a sword forged with one's anger would be devastating against those they hate regardless of defenses but utterly ineffective against everyone else, the specialism is always unique to the user.

It is possible to perform this power by proxy through the use of special objects.




  • Soul Mutilation and Soul Destruction are particularly effective against this power.
  • May lack particular traits of the power, limiting the applications as well as rendering them vulnerable to the Soul Splitting.
  • Some soul forms may possess their own sentience, which may cause problems for their wielders since the sentience may disagree with the wielder.
  • One has to awaken to it through an experience unique to themselves; other uses can teach unawakened users how to use/awaken to their power.
  • A weak soul may not be able to do much, similarly a strong soul may overwhelm the user.
  • Can easily exhaust and/or ruin the physical body if overused.
  • Does not enable Life-Force Manipulation and cannot create "living" Life-Force Constructs or any construct that can otherwise function independent of the user neither can they create revive or destroy souls.
  • May not be able to simply forge their soul with force of will or soul wavelength and may require an actual forge and tools in order to use this power.
