Special Traits


  • Multiattack. A seraph genie makes three scimitar attacks.
  • Scimitar. Melee Weapon Attack: +7 to hit, reach 5 ft., one target. Hit: 7 (1d6 + 4) slashing damage plus 7 (2d6) fire damage.
  • Fire Burst (Recharge 5-6). The seraph genie emits a blast of elemental fire in a 30-foot radius. All creatures in the area must make a DC 15 Dexterity saving throw, taking 28 (8d6) fire damage on a failed saving throw, or half as much on a successful one.


This creature resembles a ten-foot-tall human with brick-red skin and coal-black hair, long and braided.

The seraphs are genies from the Plane of Fire, and the sworn enemies of the efreet. A violent war between the two genie races has spanned centuries and spilled into an uncountable number of planes.

Any encounter between a seraph and an efreeti sparks a battle that only ends when one or the other is killed.

Those that aid the efreeti are treated by seraphs as if they were efreeti themselves; no mercy is shown in battle to an ally of the hated fire genies. The seraphs often align themselves with djinn as they both share the efreeti as a common enemy.

A seraph prefers to use its spell-like abilities over melee weapons in combat, often allowing its opponents to move in close so the seraph can unleash its fire burst. A seraph facing overwhelming odds in battle attempts to flee; covering its escape by turning invisible or erecting a wall of fire between itself and its enemies.

A typical seraph stands 10 feet tall and weighs about 1,500 pounds.
