Efreets are powerful creatures from the Elemental Chaos, said to be made of basalt, bronze, and congealed flames. An efreet resembles a giant devil, and is sometimes referred to as a fire genie. The self-proclaimed fiery princes of the Elemental Chaos, they are the strongest force of order on that tumultuous plane. Efreets are known for their arrogance, their cruel nature, and their hatred of servitude. Though few in number, they rule over vast armies and households of elemental slaves. Efreets are sometimes called to the world to perform favors for mortals, but these favors always come with a high price.
The primary home of the efreets is the fabled City of Brass, where they live like kings. It is their greatest achievement – a permanent city-fortress in the roiling chaos, unchanging and eternal. Every efreet is a memeber of a noble house, and these houses constantly plot and scheme against each other. From time to time they muster great armies against each other. While an efreet house might only contain a small number of related efreet, they use power and intimidation to lord their might over other elementals. They often have creatures of many elements other than fire serving them.
