Elementalists are born with an innate ability to control the elements. Most elementalists do not understand how they have these powers, but many claim they are a descendent of a human who made an ancient pact with the elementals. He learned their ways, he gave birth to 2 children who had his ability.
Elementalists tend to master the control of one element, and just know the basics of controlling the other three. Each different mastery holds a great power, and unique skills which the others cannot posses.
As an Elementalist, you will control the elements to hinder your enemies and aid your allies. Elementalists are unique and can make a great member of a party.
|Characteristics: Elementalists control the elements from a distance, hindering their foes, and helping their allies.|
|Religion: Elementalists do not follow a set deity. Religion to an elementalists is a personal choice, and has no power over their abilities on the battle field. Most Elementalists choose Pelor, due to the majority of them being Human.|
|Races: Humans were the race that started the Elementalist abilities, but after many generations it has spread into half elf culture, half orc culture and halfing culture. Some Elves and Eladrin know of the power, but none have made the pact to control the elements. There are rumors of a very few Dwarves who have learned the elementalist ways, with a mastery of earth.|
