Water Genasi are one of the five main subraces, also known as watersoul Genasi. They are around 6 feet tall and weigh 170 on average. Their skin is sea-foam blue or green, and they are bald. Their energy lines, szuldar, are of bright blue color.

Water Genasi are unusually patient for their kind. You could say they are like the ocean, providing a calm and relaxing exterior while being capable of a sudden storm of emotions that arise from the depths of their personality and heritage.

Many get abandoned at birth, making them highly independent and confident to the point of being arrogant. They also rarely find another water Genasi as a partner and marry, making this particular variant of the race a bit rarer than the other ones.
