The Exalted are mortals empowered by the greatest of the gods. When most people think of the Exalted, they think of the Dragon Blooded, the chosen of the Great Elemental Dragons. you were all raised to believe that their power was beyond challenge. Now, however, you find that you have become some other kind of Exalted. The power you felt was much like what you have heard of, but rather than the flush of fire or the roar of water, you felt the purity of surging light, the warmth of the midday sun welling from your souls. You understand now that there are also other types of Exalted, that the Dragon-Blooded name Anathema. Hidden Path has taught some of you that you are known as Solar Exalted, the Chosen of the Sun, while he, and others, are Sidereal Exalted, chosen of the Five Maidens. You have also seen the work of the deathknights, whose powers seem oddly similar to your own, like reflections in a shadowed mirror.
