Description[edit | edit source]
Qorrash were elemental creatures native to the Plane of Air. They had blue skin, which was always covered in thick frost, because a perpetual aura of bitter cold always emanated from their bodies. They had white hair. Males were often bald and sported fancy goatees; females wore their hair long. A typical qorrashi stood over ten feet (300 centimeters) tall and weighed about half a ton.
Abilities[edit | edit source]
Qorrash had such a strong connection to ice that they could walk on any surface of ice—even upside down. Like other genies, they had a wide assortment of inherent magical powers, including but not limited to the ability to turn invisible, to summon a storm of ice, to turn into a gaseous form, and to walk on the wind. A qorrashi could create food and water and other items and generate powerful illusions. They could blast a cone of cold from their palms, and anyone struck by one of their blows would suffer a severe chill that could lead to frostbite.

Combat[edit | edit source]
Qorrashi enjoyed fighting more than djinn did. They were confident in battle, yet they still used their magic to weaken their foes from a distance before closing in. If badly injured, they were not too proud to retreat.
History[edit | edit source]
The qorrash were distantly related to the djinn.
