Notes [ ]
If Found Soul is dropped before its death animation finishes, it will still be available for the current floor if picked up again.

Trivia [ ]
Bugs [ ]
Resuming a run with Found Soul equipped in Esau's trinket slot will require a controller to continue. After plugging the controller, Found Soul can be controlled like a Jacob and Esau Co-op baby and won't mimic the player's movements. This effect won't happen if Jacob holds the trinket.
