Fire Elemental, from Memoirs of Sir Cabirus
|First appearance:||Underworld I|
|Last appearance:||Serpent Isle|
Fire Elementals are basically living incarnations of the element of fire. Their origins and motives are unknown. What is known is, that they attack every intruder into their territory with extreme fury, intending to wipe out the intruder with a fiery death. Only experienced warriors should dare to attack them.
They are found near lava streams.
Fire Elementals changed little between the two Underworlds. However, they do look more like burning men than fires in Ultima VII Part Two.
These beings of fire, left in the chasms after eruptions of lava in the last age, are among the most challenging foes of the Abyss. First of all, one should know that these Elementals have the ability to toss portions of themselves — balls of living fire — at their opponents. Secondly, they are fearsome warriors: quick to attack with their flaming arms, nimble enough to escape most blows, and sturdy enough to withstand grievous damage. As they can kill a man in only a few blows, it is often prudent to avoid their attention by passing quietly and at a distance (Elementals are said to be nearly blind).
An elemental is a living incarnation of one of the four elements of nature: earth, wind, fire and water. Beyond this, I know little — their origins are unguessable, their motives, inscrutable. When angered, they are capable of unleashing great destructive force.
