A Distracting Soul is an NPC that can be spawned by activating the soul-in-a-box, to aid in pickpocketing for 1 minute, costing 100 charges per spawn.

30 Distracting Souls can be summoned for each divine charge, which gives an average cost of 1,577.23 coins per soul summoned (when charges are bought from the Grand Exchange).
