All of this discussion is speculative. If you have no specific knowledge of how some mythical software is intended to interact with some other mythical software, then all the speculative guesswork in the world is just...mythical

Soultaking 101 (post-box storyverse)

SoulTaker slowly gets on his feet again. Still recovering from taking one of The Searchers souls, he is quite dizzy and is having a hard time staying upright.

Lil Bo Shepherd: "Yo' should go sit for a while. Come on in, to RStefan01.com!"

Tridus: "Thanks, Bo."

Tridus helps SoulTaker walk into the house. They walk into the living room, where all 3 of them take a seat.

Tridus: "I didn't know you could actually TAKE souls... "

SoulTaker just sits.

Tridus: "Are you OK?"

SoulTaker: "Yeah... I just have to get the new soul balanced... "

Tridus: "What do you mean?"

SoulTaker: "I'll try to explain it. The Searcher had two souls in him. One was the "Future Tridus", and the other was the Zerg/Protoss hybrid. Don't know why he had 2 souls, but apparently he couldn't control both of them, and was stuck with the "Future Tridus" soul. He wanted me to take that soul, so that he could use the Zerg/Protoss."

SoulTaker: "Now I have 2 souls, and I have to learn to control the new one. Each soul has its own personality, and before I can return to "normal functionality", I have to balance the two. The "Future Tridus" soul will have to change. Right now, I can't really control which soul is controlling my actions... Which means, that The Searchers "Future Tridus" personality will show itself in my body occasionally, until I regain control."

Tridus: "Does that mean that you will occasionally behave and look as The Searcher's 'Future Tridus'?"

SoulTaker: "Exactly. As you can see, it's very important that I regain control, and make my original soul the dominating one in my body... "

Tridus: "So, what you're saying is that there are 2 souls in your body, waging for control?"

SoulTaker: "Yes."

Tridus: "And you need to 'change' the Future Tridus soul?"

SoulTaker: "I either will need to affect the new soul's personality to become like my original soul, or simply make my soul the dominating one."

Tridus: "Interesting. And then, sometime, you will be able to control both souls, and change between them freely?"

SoulTaker: "Well, that's quite a lofty goal. To be able to change between "Future Tridus" and me... It is possible, but I don't think I will be able to do it. My abilities have been inactive too long... All I want is to remove the danger of Future Tridus controlling my body. I don't think I will be able to change between them whenever I want."

Tridus: "Can't you just somehow destroy the 'Future Tridus'?"

SoulTaker: "Souls cannot be destroyed. They can move from body to body... But never destroyed."

Tridus: "So you could actually move Future Tridus into, say, rRaminrodt's body?"

SoulTaker: "Yeah, but that's not a good idea. It is quite a shocking experience, having to fight for control of your body."

Tridus: "An interesting possibility, though. What happens if Future Tridus gains control of your body?"

SoulTaker: "You mean, full control? If Future Tridus gains 100% control of my body?"

Tridus: "Yes."

SoulTaker: "Then I would be... Dead."

Tridus: "You're already dead, aren't you? I mean, undead."

SoulTaker: "But if another soul took control of my body, I would be without body... Which is... Death."

Tridus: "Scary."

SoulTaker: "For security, I think that I should be locked up until I gain control of my new soul. If Future Tridus gets in control, I could endanger all of you."

Tridus: "Right..."

Tridus: "But there's nowhere to lock you up here, and RStefan01 left in the jeep."

Lil Bo Shepherd: "We got the cellar downstairs, if yo' interested."

SoulTaker: "That would be a good idea."

Lil Bo Shepherd: "I'll show ye the cellar."

Lil Bo Shepherd, Tridus and SoulTaker stands up. Lil Bo Shepherd leads Tridus and SoulTaker to the cellar.

Lil Bo Shepherd: "It's an underground cellar, where we store some of our beer."

SoulTaker: "That should do."

He walks down the stairs to the cellar. It's a dark, grey room. Cold. A few beer jugs are stored in one of the corners. A few rats run away as SoulTaker arrives...

SoulTaker: "Come see me once in a while."

Tridus: "Have fun."

SoulTaker smiles. Lil Bo shepherd closes the hatch to the cellar, and locks it...
