A Seer is a member of the Hork-Bajir race that is considerably more intelligent than their race. Apparently, on average, a seer is only born every 1,000 years (however this is not the case for Toby Hamee). They are treated with respect and are honored even by the elders. They usually assume leadership over the rest of the Hork-Bajir. Seers are actually a genetic anomaly of sorts, as the Arn, who created the Hork-Bajir were not entirely able to fixate the Hork-Bajir intelligence gene at their preferred level.
