A visualization of Soul Perception.
Detection, Special Art
Those with Soul Perception have the ability to perceive the souls of other individuals and, depending on their skill level, can "read" a person's soul to various degrees. At a basic level, one can simply sense another soul/presence, though one of the various difficulties in using this ability is getting through the "noise", requiring a great deal of focus to achieve. At the pinnacle of a user's Soul Perception, one could assess an individual's Soul Wavelength, personality, and even capability and type of soul as well as emotional states.
While this ability is exclusive to Meisters only, it is a known fact that Demon Weapons who enter a Soul Resonance with their Meister also inherit the ability to perceive souls, though this only lasts as long as the Resonance does before the ability is loss and cannot be attained.
Despite it's advantages, the Soul Protect spell has the ability to effectively render this ability useless as well as the added fact that those who practice Soul Perception are more susceptible to Madness due to their sixth sense being more acute. This ability is locked only exclusive to certain races in addition and is even known that Witches specifically do not possess this ability. The Magnetic Field on Lost Island also can interfere with Soul Perception with "noise", rendering Soul Perception useless.
- In the case of Maka Albarn, Soul Perception may be called upon and awoken by a Meister who is experiencing an incredible amount of fear.
- Death's soul seems to be the only soul in which cannot be sensed, though this may owe due to Maka being WITHIN the boundaries of his soul, as it is at least possible for his son, Death the Kid, to have once felt his Wavelength.
