340px-4e genasi

A Fire Genasi fighting Lizardfolk.

Genasi are humans who have elemental blood, granting them powers and traits beyond those of their human ancestors. There are four types genasi, each corresponding to a type of elemental. The origins of the genasi are unclear, perhaps they are the offspring of efreets and other djinn, or maybe they are the result of a ancient experiment by a mad archmage. This last theory is supported by the only common trait of the four types of genasi, they each have glowing runes and symbols tattooed upon them from birth. These symbols are the sign of a genasi's birthright and seem to have a link to the element the genasi is bound to, as each of the four types have different runes.
