Fire Genasi

Fire genasi are hot-blooded and quick to anger, proud and unafraid to take action. They are most often neutral. They appear mostly human, with one or two unusual traits reflecting their quasi-elemental nature, such as skin the color of burnt coal, red hair that waves like flames, or eyes that glow when the genasi is angry. They prefer to dress simply and elegantly, although their fashions can be more flamboyant than the most outrageous trend.


Fire genasi are most common in Calimshan, for much of that land was long ago ruled by efreet. They are also found in Chult, the Lake of Steam, and Unther, which are all lands near volcanoes.

Racial Traits

  • +2 Intelligence, -2 Charisma. Fire genasi have bright minds, but are impatient and quick to anger.
  • Medium size. As Medium creatures, fire genasi have no special bonuses or penalties due to their size.
  • Fire genasi base land speed is 30 feet.
  • +1 racial bonus on saving throws against all fire spells and effects. This bonus increases by +1 for every five class levels the genasi attains.
  • Darkvision: Fire genasi can see in the dark up to 60 feet. Darkvision is black and white only, but it is otherwise like normal sight, and fire genasi can function just fine with no light at all.
  • Control Flame (Sp): Fire genasi can cause a nonmagical fire within 10 feet of them to diminish to the level of coals or flare to the brightness of daylight and double the normal radius of its illumination. This ability does not change the heat output or fuel consumption of the fire source, lasts 5 minutes, and may be done once per day. They use this ability as a 5th-level sorcerer.
  • Clerical Focus: A fire genasi cleric must choose a deity who grants access to the Fire domain and select Fire as one of her two domains.
  • 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 fire genasi’s fighter class does not count when determining whether she takes an experience point penalty for multiclassing.
