Crafting Soul Capsules is one of the services trueBug offers at her shop, Infusion.
The Standard Capsule is the most basic model. It isolates the positive qualities of a humor and makes them the core virtues of a character's personality. All other soul capsules have the properties of the Standard Capsule.
It is possible to create or commission a Standard Capsule with a unique shape, which some Soul Smiths do as a sort of personal signature.
Heart Capsule Edit
Heart of [Humor]
The Heart Capsule makes a character able to subconsciously percieve their encapsulated humor in other characters. They're often drawn to those who have that humor in common with them, and tend to be seen as having a mysterious intuition for others as a result.
Note of [Humor]
The Note Capsule causes a character to give off an "aura" or "vibe" of their humor. This allows its positive qualities to be inspired in others nearby, even if they do not have that humor themselves. The resulting effect is quite subtle, but still enough for characters with this capsule to be seen as having a mysterious presence.
The Keyhole Capsule locks a humor away into a character's subconscious, making its qualities inaccessible until unlocked. Unlocking it requires specific conditions or events which are often difficult to orchestrate or predict. However, awakening the encapsulated humor often spurs the character into doing legendary deeds.
The Star Capsule is a premium capsule with unknown properties. These are impossible to make or obtain without a large amount of Star power.
- Putting the Dire Humor in a soul capsule has been demonstrated to be an ineffective way to try and use it without the dangerous consequences. It cannot be contained by a capsule, and eventually breaks out.
- However, it's possible to put the Turnabout Humor in a capsule, which has the benefit of making any resulting eccentricities completely harmless (and possibly even charismatic).
