~~The Djinn and the Elements~~
When a djinn is born the priests of the land divine what this child's element and thus temprament will be based on the alignment of the stars at birth, and other factors. The affiliation with the elements does not grant any special powers, but rather simply explains their temprament and how they relate to other races related to that element. Based on the Djinn's Element, he or she may feel a kinship with the life of other races. This is not to say that they will always get along, but that their common interests will bring about fuller and more natural relationships.
