Azers were elementals native to the Elemental Plane of Fire and Elemental Chaos. Azers were created by fire titans and fire giants, whom they often served. Others, however, lived free and worked for their own benefit.
Azers resembled their ancestors the dwarves, but with brass-colored skin and hair, their hair and beards being comprised of flames. Azer bodies were so hot that their weapons conducted heat, so much so that any creature within reach of an azer was injured by the intense heat. Many azers wore kilts of brass, bronze, or copper.
Azer society was best described as communal, as every individual had a place in society and matters of the state were more important than that of the individual. Living within fortresses made of bronze on the Elemental Plane of Fire, Azer nobles wielded absolute power.
Despite loving gems and constantly waging war against the efreet, azers never started a fight unless the foe was carrying gems and in which case they might take them prisoner.
Azers were often slaves of fire giants and titans. As for the other races, azers despise efreets, with whom they are often at war.
