The Chosen are a highly religious cult who were formed by the Guardian (also known as Jaffa). Following the belief that Zoot was a God, they strive to bring his message of 'Power and Chaos' to all corners of the world. Chosen followers believe that they were each chosen by Zoot to spread his word.
They believe in the Trinity - Zoot, the Supreme Mother Trudy, and their daughter Brady. Most of the core group of the Chosen were at one point or other, Locusts. When Zoot was killed, the faction split off and followed Jaffa, to become the Chosen, intent on spreading Zoot's word of Power and Chaos.

The Chosen do not wear a tribal symbol on their person, however they are distinctly identifiable by the robes that each of them wear. The robes are tied at the waist by a belt, and are either accompanied by a normal hood or one that can conceal the wearer's features. Different colour belts signify their ranks.

They kidnap Trudy, as they believe she is the Supreme Mother for having a child with Zoot. They also capture Ebony in the process. She escapes but Trudy is taken to a boat and sails away with The Chosen, against her will. Although she returns to the Mall Rats, she has changed. Soon after, Wolf informs Ellie that the Chosen are finished; unfortunately, that is not so. Wolf is an informant who, along with Trudy, conspires to take over the city with The Chosen.
