My prefix you can find in every potion
My suffix is between a place and motion
My infix may push you to pick up a girl
And fools believe my whole can store a soul

English is not my native language, so any remarks will be appreciated.

  • $\begingroup$ between a place and motion I'm have no idea what this could mean, but I'm also not a native English speaker, so... $\endgroup$ Commented Apr 17, 2018 at 15:32

    $\begingroup$ Gustavo Gabriel - well, it means what it means, it's a riddle anyway)) My only fear is that I may mislead people with wrong articles. So, if someone thinks that he got the answer if some articles in the question can be changed - give it a try. $\endgroup$ Commented Apr 17, 2018 at 15:47

Knowing of some Native American and Australian Aboriginal beliefs that mirrors or cameras can steal their souls, I tried to fit them into the clues.

While those don't seem to work, a Photo would!

"pH" is a property of every potion and "hot" would work for the infix, but the suffix is...more creative.
When we say "drive to town", the "to" is between a place(town) and a motion(drive).

  • $\begingroup$ Great! Almost solved. Your second suffix variant is correct, but verb selection is wider - we can rot13(tb gb cnex) or rot13(geniry gb Rtlcg). Find the correct prefix and I will mark your answer. $\endgroup$ Commented Apr 18, 2018 at 10:17

My prefix is in every 'P'otion: (the letter 'P')
My suffix is between place and motion: the letter 'd', common abbreviation for distance.
My infix may push you to pick up a girl: your 'Posse'.
Fools believe my whole can store a soul: Answer: 'Possessed'

  • $\begingroup$ Nice! But the reason that push you to pick up the girl may be her "pose". And "posse", as Google say, is a squad of men raised by sheriff to help him. So, not this one. $\endgroup$ Commented Apr 17, 2018 at 18:40

necromancer - someone who is able to store a soul


Infix: romance - causes you to try to pick up a girl. (This is my main reason for trying this answer)
Prefix: Nec(tar) is a kind of potion including "nec"
Suffix: "r" is between "Promenade" (a place) and "Promenader" (motion).

  • $\begingroup$ Nice try! I like that combination. Rot13(Naq rira zber - cersvk bs lbhe nafjre pbhyq or rnfvyl punatrq, jvgu gur punatr bs gur ryrzrag.) So it's probably possible to find a suitable prefix. But i can't see a suitable suffix anyway. $\endgroup$ Commented Apr 17, 2018 at 18:19
