Anima Energy Reservoirs represent an energy used to tap into and make related (Divine, Kinetic, Occult, Psychic, etc.) aspects of The Pattern evident. It allows a character to make, boost, leverage, reveal, express, channel, and remember aspects and the flows of related capabilities – creating and tapping into Empowered Items and Empowered Places. Anything with the potential to have Anima (generally anything possessing Essence) may develop these reservoirs of power. Almost everything has minimal latent energy, locked away and unavailable for conscious use. These reservoirs are what can be tapped into and actively directed.Learning: Actuating [acquiring] an Anima Well requires either a Primer or a tutor.

A reservoir of aptitude/spark based energy that does not replenish over time by itself. It can be refilled/replaced, but generally, anything in it once used, is gone forever. Any character with a Anima Well, has a related Anima Pool of the same type.
