Soul-Keepers[1][2] are containers that hold Tactical Souls in Castlevania: Aria of Sorrow and Castlevania: Dawn of Sorrow. They look like tall candlesticks holding a glowing item at the top. The souls they hold are released and collected once the soul-keeper is destroyed.

The enemies whose souls these are from are not actually fought in the game they appear in, but are often found in previous installments. These are always Ability Souls, which enhance Soma's mobility in one way or another, and are usually required in order to enter different parts of the map.
