...and, when a noble primal's
son goes through the rite of passage that is to discern his future, sometimes it just so happens that the spirits
take a liking to him and appoint him as a sage. Souls
(also known as Spirits) are the speakers with the dead and the spirits, the walkers of the spirit pathways (in a different manner than the Voices
) and the consummate pranksters that keep megalomaniac Fists
in line by teaching them a lesson or two.
They also brew the booze, which is perhaps why a Soul can be sure she is a popular and prominent figure. Ancient pacts hold that they also handle all burials with the Hands, though the two factions are hardly in speaking terms with each other anymore.
