The ability to create bladed weapons of spiritual energy. Sub-power of Soul Energy Constructs. Variation of Blade Construction.

Also Called

  • Soul Blade/Sword Construction/Creation
  • Spirit Blade/Sword Construction/Creation


The user can construct blade weapons, including daggers, swords, etc., out of spiritual energy. Due to the special properties spiritual energy possesses, it is not bound to limitations of other elements, making it very versatile. As it is part of the user, the life-force that composes the weapon can be manipulated/shaped to change the weapon's shape and attributes, adapting to the situation at hand.

Since the blade is made of life energy, its sharpness can be remarkably high compared to other types of blades or be reduced to a blunt but powerful weapon to cause smashing damage. Depending on the spiritual energy, skill, and concentration, it can be used to distort and cut through dimensions, or potentially anything, such as spiritual beings, deities and even alternate universes. The intense energy produced by the blade can also disintegrate objects on contact via something similar to heat energy, depending on the output.





  • May require concentration in order to create the blade.
  • May require a conduit for the soul/spiritual energy to form, such as a hilt.
  • Putting too much spiritual energy into the blade may drain the user.
  • How long the blade lasts depends on the users skill and power, some may need near constant attention, others are effectively permanent.
