Ageless tricksters,Mephits gather in large numbers on the Elemental Planes and in the Elemental Chaos.They also find their way to the Material Plane,where they prefer to dwell in places where their base elements are abundant.For example,a Magma Mephit is composed of Earth and Fire,and it favours Volcanic lairs,while an Ice Mephit,which is composed of Air and Water,favours frigid locales.
