Is the concept of being a great soul a technical term which defines an extraordinary person who, as the quintessence of humanity, interacts with the gods?

Or, is it a slightly hyperbolic way of describing an exemplar (in humans' eyes)?

For instance, the Golden General used gifts from the gods for his personal ends, especially in cloaking the demon inside Joen. No great soul there, unless you're a normal guy who says "Wow! Look what he accomplished in 30 short years! Must've been loved by the gods!"

I'm trying to figure out the definition.
