Polygots are a type of sensor that are privy to the æther on a sensory and linguistic level, which they can sometimes channel. They are also called a "julker." It is said that only polyglots can learn the language of the Rephaim.


A Polyglot experiences spasmodic bursts of language at random, but the language they speak is unknown to any linguist. It has long been recognized as the art of "speaking in tongues." Speaking this language has a notable impact upon the æther, and appears to draw in nearby spirits. Polyglots are often dismissed as insane due to their outbursts typically being accompanied by seizures or vomiting by amaurotics. It is almost as if language itself is their numen.
