Glowing ones are a special kind of ghoul. Often found near areas with large amounts of radioactivity, these ghouls have absorbed so much radiation in a relatively short amount of time that they literally glow and have become living conduits and emitters of radiation. Although most are feral (by 2281), they may not have started feral. Those that have succumbed to feralness are somewhat of the "alpha" in feral ghoul "society," usually because other ghouls are attracted to the ambient radiation they give off. Glowing ones also possess the power to purge themselves of radiation in a single concentrated burst, which injures normal humans, but heals other nearby ghouls. Even after death, they remain mildly irradiated.
