Some beings come into existence as a result of a high concentration of energies rather than being born from parents or otherwise made by someone else. Primordials are the most fundamental of these, but there are many who are constructed from specific forces. Most of them are formed in the Elemental Chaos, and more specifically on the elemental planes of Air, Earth, Fire, and Water. There are those who appear elsewhere, but they are usually still linked to the Elemental Chaos in one way or another. Powers and WeaknessesElementals are usually able to control the element they emerged from in some way and can be both helpful and destructive in the way that element is. A fire might keep others warm, or burn them. Water might allow travel or it might drown. But the creatures are also vulnerable to what might destroy their element. Too much water will extinguish a Fire Elemental and strong wind might blow an Air Elemental away.
