Also Called

  • Essence Division
  • Soul Separation
  • Spirit Dividing/Splitting/Separation


The user can split or divide their own soul or the souls of others to create new beings, including basing the division on personalities and emotions to become separate beings, as well as having the divided portions possess other people. They can even achieve immortality by sealing a fraction of their soul in certain objects and having them anchor the "main" soul onto the earth should the body be destroyed.





  • The number of splittings may be limited by the soul's strength.
  • Too many splittings may cause the soul to weaken/degenerate/self-destruct.
  • Earthbound souls from the destruction of the body may be in a state worse than death.
  • The act of splitting the soul may require the supreme act of evil to achieve: murder.
  • To repair the split may require a painful reconciliation that could be fatal.
  • The split beings may still share a lifeline.
  • May cause physical, mental and spiritual instability or pain of the individual.
