  • Soul Sensory Perception

The user can perceive and read the souls, whether free (i.e. dead, astral projection, etc) or in body. They can study and observe the nature of one's soul and find weaknesses based on the nature of the observed souls. By reading souls, the user can see/feel the being's characteristics, personality, feelings, memories, whether they even have a soul, damage others' souls have endured, and whether or not another entity is possessing or influencing the person on a spiritual level.
