Air mephit

Air scamps, also known as air mephits,1 are small, humanoid-resembling elemental scamps with bat-like wings, and are among the weaker natives of the Elemental Plane of Air.2


An air scamp looks like a small winged humanoid about the size of a halfling. From its back protrude a pair of thin, leathery, bat-like wings. An air scamp's skin is a light sky blue, and they are always surrounded by flowing air currents.2

Habitat and society

The Jaathoom Empires3 is the most powerful civilization on the Plane of Air, but theirs is by no means the only one. Air scamps maintain small, isolated kingdoms in their shadows and build hastily constructed structures on small chunks of floating ice. These are ruled by self-proclaimed monarchs of very limited power who give themselves such grandiose titles as Grand Emperor of Air, High King of Thunder, or Prince of the Winds. Very rarely do they have the power to support these exuberant claims.4
