Betriz isn't a theologian.

I would note that, in the same book, we're told that a given soul is (I
think 'roasting') in the Bastard's Hell.  Which seems to connote punishment
and severe change, if not absolute destruction.

There may be a distinction between taking a soul, and taking up a soul.
And even so, it's not clear to me that the Bastard is necessarily incapable
of not taking any soul.  Why would He be unable to refuse?
