|soulbond (n., adj.)|
A soulbond is, broadly, a member of a system or a presence in someone's mind that is a fictional character in some way.
It is commonly used to refer to a walk-in from another world that existed independently from them before arriving, or holds the metaphysical belief that they did. It may also be used to refer to a fictive that takes a separate sentience, especially among writers. It can also be a connection one feels to a fictional character to the intensity that they appear in their headspace or as an internal voice.
