Fire aetherlings are descendants of Agna and are born from the primals Solon, Ashera, Flaghrán, or Calara. Their intense and chaotic magics often manifest in wild, sharp crystal growths, feral and draconic traits, and a temperament to match the heat within.
Fire is the element of passion, intensity, heat, destruction, and rebirth. When called to its greatest fury, it is catastrophic - but when calmed, it is a source of warmth, joy, and comfort.
Fire aetherlings are spirited, lively, and fiercely protective of what they love. They tend to find moderation for the weak - it's all or nothing. This can lead to a temperamental, rash nature, but it's often paired with unmatched loyalty and ambition.
