A soul is the part of a person that allows them to use magic, and is reborn upon the death of their physical body. Beings without souls are unable to use any form of magic, although luminite-based AIs are an exception to this, as the luminite acts as a soul for them.
Soul Magic, as the name might imply, is a Talent that governs manipulation of the soul. Some Soul Mages are even powerful enough that they can use it to survive the destruction of their physical body, either as a wraith, by possession of another body, or by tying their soul into a soul trap and becoming a lich.
Souls are immortal and nearly indestructible. The only known thing that can even seriously damage a soul is soulfire, a terrible spell invented by Suzcecoz Ilawi, and she keeps that knowledge tightly guarded.
