Creatures bound to the element of fire are known as the Radiant. These are highly spirited and daring lovers of life and the conflict that comes with living it. Reveling in the energy of fire they take on a tireless approach to whatever calling they have devoted themselves too. While the most famous Radiant may have distinguished themselves as master evocationists or warrior mages there are just as many in politics and trade. The Radiant are quick to make friends and quick to make enemies. The Radiant’s skin is covered in red and yellow patches, and they often have golden or red hair.
