Firenewts were reptilian humanoids native to volcanic regions, who evolved from lizardfolk and gained the ability to breathe fire.
Firenewts were about the size of a slim human. They appeared like lizardfolk with simpler faces and larger, dark-colored eyes. Their speckled, smooth-scaled skin appeared eel-like and was colored dark reddish brown at their spines and faded to nearly white on their front sides. They had long feet, giving them the appearance of "reversed knees", which gave them an advantage while running or leaping.
Firenewt warriors typically wore chain mail and carried longswords, battleaxes, or longspears. They were often seen riding upon the backs of giant striders.
The patron deity of the firenewts was Kossuth, the primoridal of elemental fire.
