Air Genasi are usually descended from a Djinn, an air genie. They are more quick and agile, but physically weaker than the other Genasi. Sometimes their features aren’t as visible, so they are often mistaken for sorcerers.

They are competitive, especially among themselves, but consider all other air Genasi as cousins. As strong-willed creatures, they make for excellent leaders. They are also fairly proud and arrogant but have enough wisdom to stay clear-sighted.

They are fast, charismatic, and independent. Like the air itself, they can be very subtle, from their own physical traits to their behavior. Names such as Breeze, Whisk, Wheeze, Gust, Fly, Gale, and Whiff are some of the good choices.
