Every soul in Skyrim is one of six possible strengths: Petty, Lesser, Common, Greater, Grand, and Black. More powerful creatures have more powerful souls. Souls are trapped in soul gems by using a soul trap spell or effect. Trapped souls are used to enchant and recharge items.

[edit] Souls Alphabetically

This table provides soul strengths for the creatures in Skyrim. NPCs are not listed because all NPCs, regardless of level, have black souls, which are the same magnitude as grand souls but can only be captured in black soul gems or The Black Star. Dremora and ghosts are NPCs.

Souls with a superscript (e.g., L:2x) are leveled. The number in the superscript is the level of the creature relative to yours. So "2x" means the creature is twice your character's level, and "-1" means that the creature is your character's level minus one. Any fractional levels are rounded down after multiplying. Some leveled creatures don't level based on a formula. See their specific page for more details.

[edit] Soul Strength

The Soul Strength captured from the creature depends on its level. Some enemies have static levels, like Alpha Wolf, which always appears as level 2. Other creatures' levels depend on your character's level, like Magic Anomaly, which is your character's level multiplied by 1.75, then rounded down to the nearest level. So if your character's level is 8, and encounters a Magic Anomaly, the Magic Anomaly will have a Soul Strength of Lesser, being at level 14. But when your character is level 18, a Magic Anomaly will have a Soul Strength of Greater, being at level 31.

Soul Level Creature Level
Petty 1-3
Lesser 4-15
Common 16-27
Greater 28-37
Grand 38+ or NPC
