The Ascendant is a Kett unit type; exalted from a species originating outside the Heleus Cluster. They have a shield around them that can be disabled by shooting at Ascendant's orb floating around them. They are the highest caste of kett seen on the battlefield and are considered exceptionally dangerous. They have element zero cores throughout their armor which allow them to levitate off the ground.
The Ascendant appear to have biological control over electromagnetic force and their cell samples show electrocyte-like formations. They likely use implants or other equipment to amplify and control this ability. If provoked, they can unleash a ball-lightning-like attack which conducts electricity to nearby enemies. They can also yank an enemy off the ground.
