Request nothing, Regret nothing, Corrupt nothing.
Well I don't trust the fire ones...too hot-headed. Give any Gensai a chance to look at the outside world and they will take it. They will travel beyond the shimmer and back, they would hold off a hydra or stare down a dragon, they appear fearless. But ask any Genasi to look inward. To look at their own actions and consequences. Wow...theres a world even they won't want to venture into.
Chosen for Redress
The Genasi was different from all the other races. It wasn't their attunement and connection with the arcane or their disposition to being explorers. These traits made them exceptional mages and dedicated explorers but so were the other races to a lesser degree. What made the Genasi special is their god. Chosen by the god of murder Bhaal, the genasi were more or less adopted instead of rescued. Bhaal chose the Genasi as his race because he wanted to right a deep-seated wrong he had committed many centuries ago. Bhaal killed one of the Genasis' former lords, the Eidolons. Without this lord, the Genasi lacked purpose they fell undisciplined and slow. Bhaal pitied them and spied a hope for redress for himself. Adopting the Genasi helped him be at peace with what he had done.
The Genasi are not natives of Luna, having spent their existence either in the elemental planes of their eidolon lords or in Verra'Talu. Having intimate knowledge of the planets gave the Genasi a unique advantage at the start of the calamity. With buffering wind and stony earth the Genasi travelled south and would use their knowledge to act as a guide to the other races. In fact it was the Genasi who gave instruction to raise the sky cities from the earth underneath. With great vaults of air, the Genasi raised the cities cutting them off from all roads and attacks. The sky cities have since become a home for air genasi while the fire genasi keep the floating city warm from such a high altitude.
One of the many traits found commonly amongst all genasi is a strong sense of ambition. All genasi have a desire to better themselves and advance their status, either through the pursuit of power, the acquisition of friends, or other means. Nearly all genasi have dreams and aspirations and pursue these goals throughout their life and will often continue to follow them even after individuals of other races have given up and moved on. Simply put, Genasi feel they have a destiny and a calling to leave a name for themselves.
Air/ Earth / Fire / Water
- Prefers to live in one of the three sky-cities of Verra'Talu
- Will freely associate with their "Complimentary" but never their opposite.
- Genasi are never truly born in conventional means but spawn from a strong concentration of elemental energy.
