General

The Chosen, the Ula in their own language, are four-armed mystics of natural psychic talent. Their bodies are symbiotic with bioluminescent algae, allowing them to sustain themselves – if passive – on sunlight alone, though they can also eat should they need to. There does seem to be some force intervening for or against The Chosen when they call upon it but most scholars and psychics agree that it is some sort of communal group-mind, rather than an actual god or higher being. Not that The Chosen agree.
