        As far as I can tell, the main use of this soul core is that it allows you to change any other soul core to a different type. (Brute, Feral, or Phantom) There are a handful of benefits to this, like the "The Dragon's Echo" skill that refunds 10% of the Anima spent to perform a Yokai Ability, if its type matches the type of your Guardian Spirit.
