An ancient inferno sorcerer, Source

Your innate magic comes from the power of elemental fire. Perhaps you were born during a falling star so powerful that folk still tell stories of it. Your lineage might include the influence of potent fire creatures such as efreeti or magmin. Whatever the case, the magic of the inferno permeates your soul.

Inferno sorcerers are invaluable members of an adventuring group and firefighters. Their magic allows them to exert control over fire and flame in their immediate area. Their abilities also prove useful in repelling attacks by demons, devils, and other fire threats.


The will of fire within you that is given to you by the elemental fire is strong. You can speak, read, and write Primordial. In addition, you gain the following spells at the listed sorcerer level. These spells do not count against the number of sorcerer spells you know.
