Rasul are the direct creations of gods brought into human form to be the agents of their divine will.

True RasulEdit

True rasul are the direct divine creations that most people of The Ark refer to when they reference the race. Any offspring of the rasul are considered rasul-blooded and not true rasul, as they are not direct creations of a deity.
