Countless ages of toil in the deep mines of Dothion, where the portals between the Twin Paradises of Bytopia and the Elemental Plane of Fire are very frequent, has created a hybrid race that shares some qualities of gnome and some of fire elemental. Fire gnomes are exceptionally resistant to heat and especially vulnerable to cold, and though they share some of the same interests as their cousins the svirfneblin, fire gnomes are nowhere near as insular and paranoid.

Fire gnomes are coal-black, with blazing, yellow-orange eyes. They could very nearly pass for a baby fire giant.
