The Pelagists are a path followed by some of the Sea Kinden. It is the least populous of the three main paths, probably because it is a solitary pursuit. Like Benthists, followers of this path are nomadic, but they carry out this travelling with only their beast for company. For this reason, pelagists tend to be very self-reliant and individually powerful. Common pelagists are wanderer-kinden of the Kerebroi, deepclaws of the Onychoi and Medusoi.
The name probably comes from the adjective pelagic, meaning related to the open sea.
