Air Genasi

Air genasi see themselves as the inheritors of the sky, the wind, and the very air of the world. They are most often neutral. They appear mostly human, with one or two unusual traits reflecting their quasi-elemental nature, such as a light blue color to their skin or hair, a slight breeze in their presence at all times, or flesh that is cool to the touch. They care little for their appearance and tend to have wind-tossed hair and much-mended clothes. Their emotions vary quickly between calm reserve and great intensity.


Air genasi are common in Calimshan, for much of that land was long ago ruled by djinn.

Racial Traits

  • +2 Dexterity, +2 Intellgence, -2 Wisdom, -2 Charisma. Air genasi are quick of hand and sharp of wit, but easily distracted and arrogant.
  • Medium size. As Medium creatures, air genasi have no special bonuses or penalties due to their size.
  • Air genasi base land speed is 30 feet.
  • Darkvision: Air genasi can see in the dark up to 60 feet. Darkvision is black and white only, but it is otherwise like normal sight, and air genasi can function just fine with no light at all.
  • Levitate (Sp): Air genasi can use levitate once per day as cast by a 5th-level sorcerer.
  • Clerical Focus: An air genasi cleric must choose a deity who grants access to the Air domain and select Air as one of her two domains.
  • +1 racial bonus on saving throws against all air spells and effects. This bonus increases by +1 for every five class levels the genasi attains.
  • Breathless: Air genasi do not breathe, so they are immune to drowning, suffocation, and attacks that require inhalation (such as some types of poison).
  • Planetouched: Planetouched are humanoids (not outsiders) with the planetouched subtype. They are susceptible to spells and effects that specifically target both humanoids and outsiders. Charm person works against them, and so does banishment. This trait replaces the outsider entry in each planetouched description.
  • Favored Class: Fighter. A multiclass air genasi’s fighter class does not count when determining whether she takes an experience point penalty for multiclassing.
