They were formed after Zoot's death, as a faction of the Locos who did not want to follow Ebony's command. Their leader was Jaffa, who claimed the title of "the Guardian". Chosen followers believed that they were each chosen by Zoot to spread his word.
Rule of the City Edit
Due to their large numbers by the time they invaded the city, the tribe leaders quickly surrendered to the Chosen. Also, they were a resource of food and supplies, and provided safety as long as one worshipped Zoot.
The rights and freedoms of non-believers were revoked, to the point that only the Chosen, their acolytes and followers were allowed to walk the streets.
When the Chosen invaded the City, they took over the Phoenix Shopping Mall, and the Mallrats were given a choice - to either become their slaves or to follow the will of Zoot - a choice which separated some members of the tribe.
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.
We are introduced to The Chosen at the start of series 2, when the Guardian and some of his cohorts make their way to the city and gatecrash a tribe leaders' meeting. 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.
The Chosen were finally defeated by the Mallrats towards the end of season three, however the Guardian and his former Lieutenant, Luke both escaped before the Technos invaded. The Guardian's present whereabouts is in a cage on the same slave compound that holds both Alice and KC.
The Chosen are the cause of many of the deaths and disappearances of the Mallrats.
