Lens: Dark Protoss (0 points)
The Dark Protoss have cut themselves off from the ancient psionic Collective, including the actual physical mutilation of a particular organ which maintains the psionic link. They can still communicate telepathically, and even join psychic gestalts with other Protoss, but they can also conceal their psionic presence, and can't access the Collective's psionic Archives. They are generally considered religious dissidents by orthodox Protoss, though not all are intolerant enough to attack them on sight. As a result of their ritual mutilation, combined with meditative disciplines, they're very difficult to detect psionically.

Advantages: Obscure 8 (Psionic Detection; Defensive, +50%; Stealthy, +100%) [40]. • Drop Racial Memory [36].

Disadvantages: Reputation -2 (Dark Protoss; Normal Protoss Only) [-4].
