Tales of Wuxia
Divine Born are said to result from the earthly dalliances of beings known colloquially as Celestials. Some people believe that divine born exist for a Reason and are the Chosen. However, if divine servitors are not meant to fraternize with mortals then it seems more likely that divine born descend from rebels. It is odd that despite divine born’s many gifts, they only wield holy powers when they happen to take priestly orders.
Divine born can pass for the lucky few humans who are attractive, fit, nimble, strong, and wise. Some have more telling features, like wings.
