Half Genie[edit]

"For my last wish oh powerful genie I wish to bear a daughter for this cruel world has left me barren and unable to conceive!" The birth of a half-genie

Physical Description[edit]

Half-genie always appear as beautiful young humans with brightly colored skin usually in shades of blue although they can be any color including regular skin tones. There is always an heir of perfection to a half-genie, such as their body being perfectly toned and shaped or their hair flowing beautifully and having a brilliant gloss.


A half-genie is a child resulting from wishing for one from a genie. Half-genies are generally a rare sight but can be seen in much larger numbers now then when they first were identified. When first identified, people believed that like their second parent, half-genies could cast wishes. This is not true however and caused half-genies to go into hiding, many of which were never seen again. Any creature who procreates with a half-genie results in a half genie child meaning that true half-genie are very uncommon and many are still hunted to this day. Unfortunately, this has left half-genies wary at best and downright paranoid at worst making them unwelcome in most societies.


Half-genie are known to be very artistic in nature often wearing very artful yet revealing clothing and having a proclivity for the arts. They are not common enough to form their own societies but often live in quiet areas were they can express themselves freely without the threat of capture or persecution. Some races appreciate their artistic nature as half-genies can find themselves comfortable in secluded towns of halflings and gnomes for example, and in some cases elves will accept them to have a friend who lives as long as they do.

Half-genie Names[edit]

Half-genie can carry any name they are given by their parent but they usually carry their own name as well from birth. These birth names are often related to the arts or to elemental phenomena.

Male: Firestorm, Torrent, Ballad

Female: Brushstroke, Bloom, Shantae
