Air Genasi

Air Genasi are fast and free-willed.  Because the traits that identify an air genasi are subtile, many go unrecognized for what they are for many years and are sometimes mistaken for sorcerers, although their inherent arrogance and disregard for their appearance fools people into believing they are charlatans at natural magic.  Those that are overtly different learn quickly to disguise their nature from common folk, at least until they are able to protect themselves and strike out on their own.

Air genasi look generally human except for one or two distinguishing features related to their elemental ancestor.  Some examples of these features are:

Air genasi revel in their unusual nature,although few ever try to locate the being that founded their bloodline (as most are long dead or banished back to the elemental plane of Air).  Because the calimshan djinn bloodlines are so old and have suffered many crossbreedings, it is almost impossible to tell by normal means if two air genasi are from the same bloodline.  As a result, all air genasi tend to treat each other as "cousins", although in an arrogant and competitive way.  Air Genasi have the same life expectancy and age catigories as humans.
