About

This creature appears as a beautiful female with long, flowing fieryred hair. Her eyes are pale blue and her skin is lightly colored with a cinnamon hint to it.

A fire nymph is a beautiful creature that dwells on the Plane of Fire. It is akin to the nymph and dryad, though its origins obviously lie elsewhere.

Fire nymphs rarely visit the Material Plane, though mages are known to request their company on occasion. A fire nymph usually wears translucent robes of white or ash.

Fire nymphs avoid combat if at all possible, but if pressed into action they rely on their innate spellcasting abilities and seek escape as soon as possible.
