50 Genasi Names with Meanings for Your Characters

The four elements, earth, fire, wind, and water, are the soul elements of the genasis

Dungeons and Dragons is an online fantasy game, where each player gets a chance to create their characters for playing the game.

The characters are found in The Elemental Evil Player's Companion. They solve problems, explore, and engage in battles and earn experience points known as XP throughout the game.

The Genasi are inhabitants of the mysterious world of Toril. The D&D Player's Companion book comprises all Genasi which possess some unique, as well as some common features. The most common Genasi are the Water Genasi, the Fire Genasi, the Earth Genasi, and the Air Genasi. There are other Genasi called Para-Genasi, an amalgamation of two elements like the Dust Para-Genasi and the Smoke Para-Genasi. They are very similar to human beings but with a different heritage.

Genasi are good, but they belong to a different world and like to live secluded. Genasi do not have last names because they feel like all of them belong to one huge family. The Genasi have no close resemblance to each other. Each character has a distinct feature. Some look like human beings, while others have elemental natures imbibed in their features. All Genasi have magical powers that manifest their guardian element. Genasi are, by nature, a proud race and feel superior to other races.
