The goal of the Protoss religion called "Khala" is to ascend the path of the "light", so perhaps it is a priest or religious official or priest? Interestingly enough, the Protoss religion worships sentient beings.

Not too many people know Esperanto, so incorporating a real language into it would be pretty cool.

Saluton, mia nomo estas mintjelly, kaj tiu estas ekzemplo de frazo en esperanto.
