View Full Version : Elemental appearences?

Ok, I'm planning on running an elemental savant soon and they say once you become an elemental you change a little. It said that earth elemental savants have rocky skin and gemstone eyes. But what would an air elemental savant half-elf look like?

They would appear whispy, with cloud-like hair - maybe with crackles of lightning in it. Your facial features could become incredibly sharp and over the top.

Just a couple on the spot suggestions.

Slightly transparent or pale with hair that always seems to blow in the breeze, even if there isn't one.

I'd say your hair would appear somewhat blue and transparant. Your eyes would become a light blue colour with a swirling effect like viewing a hurricane from the top down.

take a look at a part of the sky at anytime and base the aperances off that... like when the sun is setting and the sky is pink and purple would even work

maybe the character could have the wind in the hair effect at any given time :p (like in teh movies)

-A light breeze accompanies you...not enough to have a mechanical effect, but enough to, when your ire is roused, rattle swords on the walls, blow fabric around, and so forth.

-Your feet never truly seem to touch the ground...as if you were floating just above the surface of the earth.

-Your footsteps give off a cloud-like mist each time your foot leaves the ground.

-When angered, lightning flashes in your eyes, and your hair stands on end as if electrified.

Permanent cape of billowing.

Aereon from the Chronicles of Riddick could provide some inspiration.

What Djinn and Ent said. Wind effects you a lot more easily, and when you get angry or are in a stressful situation it billows about you. You'd probably get blue eyes, which could get cloudy and lightningy when angry.

There's not much more visually that I can think of other than white/blue/wispy.

The Forgotten Realms has genasi, who are simmilar in appearance. Here are some great pictures from Wizards art gallery.
