Added DiffLines:

In every human being is a soul. Each soul has a "plan" that dictates the path that each person will take through life. If a soul is able to follow its plan correctly, then it will grow and move onto the next life. However, any deviations from this destined path will cause the soul stone, the "psycholith", to become corrupted and shatter. The shattered remains will linger and disrupt the plans of other souls, leading to a vicious cycle of death and despair.
