A soul that has participated in the creation of another new soul at soul level. The environment within which this happens is as diverse as the cultures that exist at this level. You can create a soul on your own or you can combine material with other souls (there is no limit). Some soul cultures treat this process with great care. One soul culture we visited kept a database of all its residents and then when a new soul was needed then an analysis would be made exploring all the different combinations of material possible within the residential database to get the best combination possible. In other soul cultures it is more natural or driven by other criteria. Few souls have defined purposes as far as we can tell. Those that we have found that do are usually made with a less than freeing function - for example to serve / assist other souls.
