The Chosen are commoners from Kryta who are taken by the White Mantle supposedly for recruiting. They are identified by the Eye of Janthir, in a ritual in which the players take part during the Divinity Coast mission, and are said to be taken away for learning magic at the Temple of the Unseen by the Grand Masters.
The truth, however, is that the Chosen are part of the Flameseeker Prophecies, destined to cause the downfall of the Mursaat. In the Maguuma Jungle the players learn that the White Mantle, servants of the Mursaat, are taking the Chosen into the jungle to be sacrificed on a bloodstone. The souls from such sacrifice are powering the soul batteries in the Door of Komalie, preventing the armies of Titans from invading the world of Tyria.
- The Bloodstone Fen mission involves the White Mantle's attempt to sacrifice the Chosen on a bloodstone and the player must help the Shining Blade save them.
