Design Note: This race uses the Elemental Evil, Players Companion's Genasi as the base race and then builds from there. Additionally, there is no Elemental Plane of Lightning and thus originates from the elemental plane of air or the elemental choas.

Genasi Subrace[edit]

Lightning genasi differ from typical humans with their blueish skin that ranges from close to white to a midnight blue, entirely hairless they have similarly colored crystalline growths that protrude from their head but can also grow from their back, shoulders, elbows and knees. Beyond that, the faint smell of ozone eludes from them, and the stronger the scent the greater their current emotion, the hairs of other creatures standing up from their heightened electromagnetic field.
