He would then travel to the spirit world by calling helper spirits using trance music, employing helper-spirit masks, and magical implements such as staffs.

Once the errant soul was located, the shaman would "suck" the soul into the soulcatcher, and return to the patient.
The soul would then be "blown" back into the patient. From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia. For other uses, see Soul catcher disambiguation.

She began a long campaign to seduce Croaker, trying to force him to betray his love for Lady. She built a frightening suit of armor which duplicated her sister's Lifetaker rig. She also sent Frogface to steal Croaker's Widowmaker rig from its hiding place beside Murgen 's bedroll within the besieged city of Dejagore. Soulcatcher now acted as a wild card in the ongoing Shadowmaster wars between Taglios and the Shadowmasters.
In an effort to keep the siege of Dejagore from ending in a decisive victory for the Shadowmasters, Soulcatcher and Croaker appeared as the Lifetaker and Widowmaker characters devised by Lady. Soulcatcher used her immense powers to drastically tip the tide of battle against the Shadowmaster armies on the night they were about to capture Dejagore. Although the siege continued, Soulcatcher left Shadowspinner gravely injured and the enemy forces depleted, disturbed, and completely confused.
Next, Soulcatcher dragged Croaker — now under sorcerous glamour to appear as the man Ram — to the city of Taglios proper. There, she impersonated her sister and began to worm her way into the confidences of the Prahbrindrah Drah. Howler escaped Taglios aboard his crumbling flying carpetand took the unconscious Soulcatcher to Overlook. Kept in a stupor in a cell, she was awakened only with the direct intervention of her imp Frogface. She sent him Soulcatcher out to prevent Croaker from reuniting with Lady.
Then, she used her superior magic to generate sufficient heat to melt through the stone walls of her cell. When Overlook's garrison approached to recapture her, she summoned a ferocious demon which plowed through the unprepared men. On foot, she immediately set out to continue her plot to torment her hated sister. Longshadow was outraged that his prisoner escaped, so he summoned a gigantic shadow and sent it to assassinate Soulcatcher. She and Frogface were prepared, however, and outwitted the entity.
The two led the shadow around New Dhara large city in the Shadowlandsand they tricked it into killing key residents, with the goal of enraging the populace against the Shadowmasters. Then she sealed the shadow inside the vault of the corrupt governor.
Soulcatcher then departed with her imp, and fulfilled her promise to set him free once they exited New Dhar. Using the artifact, she safely crossed the Shadowgate without been seen by the vigilant Longshadowtraversed the glittering plainand entered the fortress with no name.
There, at the feet of the immortal, imprisoned golem Shivetyashe tinkered haphazardly with the prehistoric machinery that Shivetya used to maintain the sorcery of the plain. Her careless activity caused the gigantic earthquake Soulcatcher occurred at the end of Bleak Seasons. It created deep fissures not only on the plain, but also reached back into the homeworldtaking thousands of lives, most especially in the city of Kiaulune which is nearest to the Shadowgate.
Later evidence in the Voroshk world suggested that her earthquake also devastated the southern portion of that world, as well. She had occupied that position for fifteen years when the remains of the Company departed to rescue the Captured. Soulcatcher was mostly concerned about reigning over Taglios and controlling its troubled people and many religious fanatics. Because of it, she made feeble efforts to restrain the petty attacks from Sleepy and her group.
Then, Willow Swanthe Radisha, and two high members of the Council were captured right under Catcher's nose. It made her reorganize her priorities and start a hunt to arrest the Company members. While Goblin was trying to escape the Palace of TagliosSoulcatcher identified his presence and started a chase. When she was close to getting Goblin he used one of his tricks in a trap and as result Catcher lost the heel of her right foot. Crippled she tried to use a flying carpet but it had been sabotage and she fell from a high height into a frozen lake getting even more injured.
She sped to Kiaulune in a vain attempt to stop Sleepy and her fugitive group. She got there in time to see her enemies crossing the shadowgatebut before she could act she was suddenly attacked by Khusavir Pete using a fireball projector. While she was distracted, Uncle Doj destroyed her flying carpet and rejoined the others. Soulcatcher was now forced to travel by foot and had no hope of stopping the Company's escape.
Later she was seen transporting the captive Daughter of Night back to Taglios. Soulcatcher believed that the remnants of the Black Company would never return Soulcatcher the homeworld after they fled through the shadowgate at the end of Water Sleeps. Four years later, Soulcatcher and her crows hunted for her niece, the escaped Daughter of Nightand the young woman's guardian, Narayan Singhthroughout the outskirts of her Protectorate.
Her crows reported that some of their number were being killed when they were alone. Investigating this, she was suddenly attacked by a mob of Unknown Shadowswhich were highly intelligent variations of the killer shadows she already had in her own employ. At the expense of most of her own trained shadows, Soulcatcher killed off the attacking entities and learned of their origin: the Black Company had somehow reconstituted itself and was coming for her.
She immediately knew that the Company's goal would be to defeat her personally and overthrow her dictatorial regime in Taglios. She traveled north on foot to muster her forces. Meanwhile, Sleepy and her 10, soldiers mostly recruited from Hsien marched inexorably northward from the shadowgate.
They speedily disarmed the Shadowlands, crossed the Dandha Preshand captured Protectorate sites like Nijha and Gharhawnes. Soulcatcher summoned her Taglian forces and divided them into three armies. Mogaba remained with an army outside the city of Taglios itself, Soulcatcher. The small Southern Army gathered outside Dejagore. Finally, the large Middle Army was Soulcatcher in lightly settled country midway between Dejagore and the fortified crossings over the Main at Ghoja, with Soulcatcher in direct command.
She secretly seeded the ground at strategic points with incredibly destructive "deathflower" spells. As the Company approached, Soulcatcher eventually formed the Middle Army into three successive lines, with a hundred yards of separation each between them.
The Battle of the Middle Ground was fought. Her first line crumbled quickly and the second soon after. The third line held for much longer. Only then did Soulcatcher finally reveal her dreadful battlefield sorcery.
Her "deathflower" spells began to instantaneously burn whole lines of Company soldiers in violent flower-shaped flashes. The soldiers were partially melted in such a way that they appeared to be sunken into the earth up to Soulcatcher ankles, hips, or further. Croaker calculated that roughly four or five hundred men died in these traps. Sleepy halted the infantry advance to reevaluate the battlefield.
Soulcatcher's presence near this battlefield was the reason why Tobo withheld the Unknown Shadows from the battle, for their own safety. Meanwhile, the Company attempted to cancel Soulcatcher's power.
Croaker and Murgen used fireball projectors to saturate locations where they thought she was hiding. Tobo and the Howler were aboard a flying carpet and were prepared to fight Soulcatcher directly if they could pinpoint her.
But she never exposed her location. Then, unlike earlier points in the infantry battle, Soulcatcher's incendiary traps started killing her own men. She was no longer actively maintaining the deathflower spells, so the Company realized something must have happened to their nemesis.
They charted a path around Soulcatcher's killing field and turned their airborne power at the Middle Army itself. Shukrat used her rheitgeistiden to soar over Soulcatcher's lines and pummeled them with a fireball projector. Tobo and the Howler dropped firebombs among their ranks. After the Middle Army retreated, the Black Company unexpectedly discovered Soulcatcher nude and unconscious in her own command tent.
The Company took Soulcatcher prisoner but could not revive her. Croaker realized that Soulcatcher's condition mirrored that of Sedvoda young man who had also been secretly put into a lethal coma by the Khadidas.
