About

This creature resembles a humanoid constructed of brass. Its features are exquisite and delicate, and ancient runes and symbols adorn its body.

Brass men are humanoid-shaped constructs built by the powerful efreet of the City of Brass. They are created for the sole purpose of guarding some efreeti secret within the walls of the city. Some are created as battle allies and aid the efreet in battle against their enemies. They are rarely encountered elsewhere though on occasion one is sent to the Material Plane by its efreeti creator to retrieve an object or creature.

Brass men are very tough physical opponents and difficult to stop.

Typically, a brass man begins combat by spitting molten brass on the closest opponent before moving into melee where it attacks with its huge greatsword or its powerful fists.
