Safety Rating: Beneficial.

Environment: Once created, a Soul Flower only dies when the person it is bonded to dies. This means that Soul Flowers can live in any environment.

Details: A Soul Flower is created in a ritual that uses Plant Magic to transform a non-magical flowering plant into a Soul Flower bonded to the life force of a specific person. If that person thrives, the Soul Flower thrives. If that person is injured, the Soul Flower is injured. If that person is in mortal peril, the Soul Flower wilts. If that person dies, the Soul Flower dies.

The typical use of a Soul Flower is to monitor a person’s wellbeing at a distance. This works because a Soul Flower always shows the condition of the person it is bonded to. In fact, a Soul Flower can’t be harmed by anything except harm to the person it is bonded to.

Appearance: Any type of non-magical flowering plant can be made into a Soul Flower. Popular choices are roses, lilies, bromeliads, orchids, and flowering succulents. Once transformed, the plant becomes compact in shape and has a single, glowing flower. While this flower is the same type of flower it was before, its appearance now reflects the essence of the person it is bonded to. For example, what was a smooth, elegant, red rose may transform into a simple, fragrant, pink rose for one person and a lush, frilly, purple rose for another.

Lore: Creating entwined Soul Flowers is partnership custom in many dryad communities.

Inspiration: The myths and tales from different cultures that have magic plants, such as life-trees and golden lilies, that show whether a person is well, in-peril, or dead.
