Elemental Goblin

Elemental goblins are a group of small humanoid creatures with a common origin and wildly divergent abilities. Long ago, in either a nowextinct species or a species very different from the elemental goblins’ current forms (almost certainly not actual goblins), there lived 5 large family clans who came into dispute with one another. As the dispute grew violent, the 5 different clans each appealed to the gods for aid. For each clan, a different deity responded, each with different solutions. However, the members of all 5 clans were irrevocably altered into 5 new species.
