Fire Elemaster

by Marco Dalmonte

Patron of all Elemental creatures of Fire
Level, Alignment, Sphere: 32nd (Hierarch), N, Energy
Symbol: a red circle
Portfolio: Protecting the Elemental Plane of Fire and fire creatures
Worshipped in: Elemental Plane of Fire and some outer planes
Appearance: a colossal androgynous humanoid (around 20' tall) made of fire and hot magma
History: the current Fire Elemaster is an elemental that found the way to become immortal in the dawn of times, asserting his rule over the Elemental Plane of Fire to grant balance and stability inside that plane. Nobody knows whether he was sponsored by another immortal or not (and he is not telling anybody), not even the ancient immortals can testify it, although they assert he's been holding this position as far as they remember. Aside from his home plane and a few outer planes aligned with Energy and filled with fire creatures, he does not care about the existence of other creatures or other planes of existence, and for this reason his cult is not present on Mystara.
Personality: Like all Elemasters, he is a Neutral being that rules his subjects leaving them a great degree of freedom. He leaves the day-to-day administration of the various regions of the Elemental worlds to the many nobles in his court, which has a pyramid-like organisation, and he prefers to concentrate on the extraplanar relationships with other immortals and Elemasters. He tolerates and actually likes watching the infighting and the occasional intraplanar wars among its nobles, as long as this does not threaten the overall stability of the plane. For this reason he alternates long periods of silence to periods of constant edicts and iron fist policy. As much as all other elemasters, he does not like to share his position with power-hungry nobles and for this reason he hinders any possible attempt at challenging his rule over the Plane of Fire. This paranoia goes up to the point of preventing any of his subjects to discover the path to immortality and become immortal, for fear of being replaced (since he knows there can be only one Elemaster for each element to maintain balance in the Multiverse). The Fire Elemaster is biased by his own nature to be friendly with the immortals of the sphere of Energy, and he is a loyal ally of Rathanos and Ixion, fire-loving immortals, while he opposes the Elemaster of Air because of the laws of elemental opposition. The immortal Zugzul has tempted him in the past and offered him his support in exchange for his help against Ixion, but so far the Fire Elemaster has always remained a staunch ally of the ruling Hierarch of Energy.
