Distant relatives of the djinn, qorrash (singular qorrashi) are elemental spirits of cold and ice.

A qorrashi appears as a pale blue-skinned humanoid with noble features, and its skin is laced with frost like a window in wintertime. Males tend to be bald but wear elegant white goatees, while females wear their white hair long. They are surrounded by an aura of frigid cold noticeable even in the coldest climate.

A qorrashi is about 10 1/2 feet tall and weighs about 1,000 pounds. Qorrash speak Auran, Celestial, Common, and Ignan.


Qorrash are rather fonder of physical combat than their djinn cousins, though they still use their magical abilities to soften up their foes. They are quick to flee combat that turns against them.

Chill (Ex): In addition to its normal slam damage, a qorrashi deals 1d6 points of additional cold damage with a successful attack.

Frostbite (Ex): A creature that sustains any cold damage from a qorrashi's melee attacks suffers from frostbite and is fatigued (cannot run or charge; -2 penalty to Strength and Dexterity). These penalties end when the cold damage is healed by any means. Targets must make a Fortitude save (DC 17) to resist.

Spell-Like Abilities: 1/round -- endure elements, invisibility (self only); 3/day -- cone of cold, ice storm; 1/day -- create food and water, gaseous form (up to 1 hour), major creation (created vegetable matter is permanent), persistent image, wind walk. Caster level 20th; save DC 12 + spell level.

Cold Subtype (Ex): A qorrashi is immune to cold damage but takes double damage from fire unless a saving throw for half damage is allowed. In that case, the genie takes half damage on a success and double damage on a failure.

Icewalking (Ex): This ability works like the spider climb spell but applies to all icy surfaces. A qorrashi can move normally on any icy surface.

Plane Shift (Sp): Like other genies, a qorrashi can enter any of the elemental planes, the Astral Plane, or the Material Plane. This ability transports the qorrashi and up to six other creatures, provided they all link hands with the genie. It is otherwise similar to the spell of the same name.

Telepathy (Su): A qorrashi can communicate telepathically with any creature within 100 feet that has a language.
