Zozat is an alien life form. At least from our perspective. From his viewpoint however, we are the aliens, and we are not very friendly and quite dangerous!
Zozat's talent is that of a Bonder. At it lowest level, a Bonder is one who can "touch" minds and "let each know the others truths." In essence, let each see things from the other's perspective. But the power goes much deeper, allowing several individual to join together and form a single entity, usually designed with special skills and powerful abilities.
