Phoenix Kin[edit]

So, is that fire natural or... OH GOD!
—an unfortunate explorer

Physical Description[edit]

Humanoid in shape as they start off, with fire blazing from their head instead of hair. The flame that blazes can be an assortment of different colors, each with their own abilities. Phoenix kin, or Ifrit's as they are sometimes called, have a build as much as an average human.


Born from the fires of Mount Xalnoth, The Phoenix kin are usually a primitive race, living in tribes hidden from the common races of the world. They worship the Phoenix as to hope for eternal life through its flame. As the race started, they held only one flame coloration: orange, natural fire. As times past the fires upon their heads changed hues over time, giving them different abilities with the different colors. With times changing and technology advancing, The Phoenix kin fell behind the other races in technological advancement due to their isolation. With many scouting groups from the tribes exploring the new world they never knew, they hope to bring new information and technology to their tribes.


Although they are primitive, they do have a hierarchy that consists of a chief and a counsel who make the rules of the tribes. In the tribes, they usually have a shrine to their creator, the Phoenix. Among the hierarchy, yet not part of the council is a seer who foresees events that deal with the tribe, and what they say usually does happen. Thier growing curiosity has had them send exploration parties to discover more of the world. Although curious they're quite cautious when dealing with peoples or technology of different races and are quite territorial with their tribe's border. When dealing with new things you can never be too cautious.
