Hearts are mobile, semi-intelligent, and while not omniscient, know everything their owners know and tend to have extremely good hunches. An angel's Heart travels where it thinks Heaven needs it, a demon's where it thinks will benefit the demon. As an angel acquires dissonance, its heart grows increasingly concerned with its owner's pesonal interests as distinct from those of the Symphony as a whole.

Hearts have personalities that reflect in some ways those of their owners, but are not wedded to them. They tend to have a sense of humor. They don't move when anybody's looking, and they generally don't find their way into secure locations where they're not wanted (though exceptions have occurred.) They come into being and out of being when their owners do, for they are indeed a part of them. Shatter one and it appears somewhere else. They have been known to shatter independently.

Heaven and Hell are very, very big, and while usually a Heart will just take you to where minions are expected to show up, they may take you to very strange places indeed.
