Flame Lords are short and look somewhat like slender dwarves due to their small size and pronounced bone lines. Flame lords always have a crown of fire burning on top of their heads rather than hair. Their skin is bronze in color and just as difficult to damage. A flame lord can manifest great 10 foot wings from either shoulder at will and these wings are required for flight.

The flame lord is a dangerous foe to those who dare oppose them while unprotected against their terrible fire. Flame lords soften up their opponents with a few of their spell like abilities before charging in to maximize their fiery aura and physical prowess.
    Fiery Aura (Su): As a free action, a flame lord can ignite the air within 5 feet of themselves into a burning inferno. Any creature entering this area suffers 1d6 points of fire/heat damage per round of exposure, no save. This aura can be ignited even under water, in a vacuum, or in other conditions that would inhibit normal flame.
    Flaming Wings (Su): As a free action, a flame lord can manifest fiery wings to carry them through the air or to do battle with. These wings can be ignited even under water, in a vacuum, or in other conditions that would inhibit normal flame. A Flame Lord can attack with its wings, using them as natural weapons, to make two slam attacks per round for 1d4 + strength modifier + 1d6 fire damage. A Flame Lords fiery wings have a 10 ft. reach.
    Spell-Like Abilities (Sp): Flame lords possess a number of spell-like abilities. They can evoke up to five spell-like effects in one day, each functioning as the spell by the same name cast by a 5th level sorcerer. Their abilities include: flame bolt, fireball, fire shield, produce flame, and wall of fire.
    Fiery Fast Healing (Ex): Flame lords are able to quickly heal themselves by coming into contact with forms of heat and fire. As long as a Flame Lord is exposed to fire, including their own, they heal two points of damage per round.
    Flame Stride (Sp): Flame lords can enter any fire source and teleport to any other fire source within 700 feet. The fire can be of any size and using this ability is a standard action. The flame lord does not need to have foreknowledge of which flame he is transporting to, he is transferred in the direction desired to the furthest fire available or to a distance specified, whichever is more accurate.
    Fire Subtype: A creature with the fire subtype has immunity to fire. It has vulnerability to cold, which means it takes half again as much (+50%) damage as normal from cold, regardless of whether a saving throw is allowed, or if the save is a success or failure.

Flame Lords are the elite servants, warriors, and messengers of the Efreeti. The tale is told that when the Efreet came to the Elemental Plane of Fire there was a great war waged between the flame lords against the geniekind. Defeated by the efreet, it was decided that the flame lords would become the servants of the genies they had fought against. Rumor has it that the terms of the flame lords servitude is not indefinite, but no one is telling how long it has been or how much longer still the Flame Lords must labor in servitude.

Flame lords require both heat and fire to survive. Cold fire or just heat without flame will not provide the sustenance that a Flame Lord needs to survive. Flame Lords who are traveling to places where there is not abundant fire may use their produce flame spell-like ability to create a flames which they can feed upon.
    Many schooled mages believe that the essence from a Flame Lord's wings is a valuable boon for producing spells which create large amounts of heat, or for potions of protection from fire.
