Megami Tensei Wiki

Essence (写せ身, Utsuse mi)? is a mechanic in Shin Megami Tensei V.

Profile

Essenses can then be used to modify the skills and affinities of the protagonist and any ally demons. The contents of these essences generally represent the titular demon's regular properties (for instance, "Agathion's Essence.")

Demons are able to give their own Essences in requests, and they can also be found in Treasure Boxes and Amalgams.

For skills, it is presumably possible to merge skills from the user and the Essence's skill pools. On the other hand, the Essence's affinities directly replace the target's.
