ABOUT

Some people think very little of what happens after life, until death reminds them of its presence. Some see their life as an investment in what is to come after their demise. No matter what their philosophy on death entails, all creatures meet a soul guide moments after the end of their earthly existence.

Divine Creation. A soul guide is an angel and doesn’t require food, drink, or sleep.

Guidance. A soul guide helps those who fail to accept their fate in the afterlife. It explains what will happen next to the deceased, and accompanies them until the soul descends to hell or ascends to heaven.

Unbounding. To ease its passing, a soul guide severs the threads that hold all that makes a mortal together. It separates its soul from its flesh, its mind from its soul, and its essence from its mind.
