Agents from the higher planes such as these are often in the service of Gods or similar. While Clerics tend to remain in one community, Favoured Souls are more likely to be seen travelling around the world or other planes in the service of their deity.
Favoured Souls are often of Celestial background, or have been chosen at birth to be devoted to their deity. Their powers are characterised by their ability to conjure healing, lightning and light. They also seem to be overflowing with life and can be hard to kill.
