An Envoy, or Envoy of Gaia, is a term used to describe an extraordinary human with strange and powerful abilities. It is also the role players take during the game.
An Envoy is accompanied by their own Eidolon. However, the Envoy can be affected by the powers of the Eidolon, who then become thirsty for power. Those who long for more power without considering the side effect become corrupted, transforming into a demon from Pandemonium.
