Physical Qualities

Every Genasi constantly manifests an element. (Genasi have no neutral, nonelemental state.) All Genasi are born with one elemental manifestation, a genetic trait handed down from his or her parents. Genasi are roughly the size and shape of humans, though they tend toward broader physiques that are evidence of their physical strength. A Genasi's body is etched with energy lines that glow in a color associated with the element the Genasi manifests.

Earthsoul: Brown skin; golden energy lines and eyes; bald with golden energy lines glowing on the head.
Firesoul: Ruddy bronze skin; fiery orange energy lines and eyes; flickering flames coming out of the energy lines on the head.
Stormsoul: Purple skin; silvery energy lines; glowing crystalline silver spikes on the head.
Watersoul: Seafoam green skin; bright blue energy lines; bald with blue energy lines glowing on the head.
Windsoul: Sliver skin; light blue energy lines; glowing blue and gray ice crystal spikes on the head.
