Innate Spellcasting. The efreeti’s innate spellcasting ability is Charisma (spell save DC 15). It can innately cast the following spells, requiring no material components:
At will: (can assume Medium or Large form),
3/day each: , , ,
1/day each: (fire elemental only), (to Elemental Plane of Fire only)
Elemental Demise. When a efreet dies, its body becomes a mote of elemental energy. This mote might take the form of a glowing chunk of earth, a shard of crystallized air, or an ever-burning ember.
Multiattack. The efreeti makes two brass sword attacks or hurls flame twice. The efreeti can replace one attack with a kick.
Brass Sword. Melee Weapon Attack: +10 to hit, reach 10 ft., one target. Hit: 15 (2d8 + 6) slashing damage plus 7 (2d6) fire damage.
Kick. Melee Weapon Attack: +10 to hit, reach 5 ft., one target. Hit: 11 (2d4 + 6) bludgeoning damage, and the target is pushed 10 feet away from the efreet.
Hurl Flame. Ranged Spell Attack: +7 to hit, range 120 ft., one target. Hit: 21 (6d6) fire damage.
Fiery Wall (1/Day). An opaque wall of magical flame rises from the ground within 60 feet. The wall is 6 inches thick and can be up to 20 feet high and 30 feet long. Each creature within the wall when it appears makes a DC 15 Dexterity , taking 18 (4d8) fire damage on a failed save or half damage on a success. A creature also takes 18 (4d8) fire damage when it enters the wall for the first time on a turn or ends its turn there. The wall disappears when the efreet is killed or , or when it uses an action to dismiss it.
The efreeti prefers to fight in melee, although it will sometimes take to the sky and hurl flame at targets with inferior ranged options. It uses its Fiery Wall to burn at least two enemies. It uses Kick to push enemies into the wall or other hazards. Efreet are fearless and only retreat if doing so gives them a tactical advantage.

Legends and Lore
With an Arcana or Nature check, characters can learn the following:
DC 10 Among the most powerful elemental beings in existence, genies rule the Elemental Planes.
DC 15 The essence of every genie is linked to one of the four basic elements: air, earth, fire, and water.
DC 20 Though all genies wield powerful elemental magic, only genie nobles possess the ability to grant wishes.
The Elemental Plane of Fire can be a barren, hostile place. But where the efreet have built their great City of Brass, there is beauty, life, and shelter. These spirits of fire are majestic and imperious, with skin like magma and coal, and hair like ash and ember. They rule the Plane of Fire and take a keen interest in mortal affairs.
Mirage Arcana. Efreet are masters of illusion and flame. They can conjure mirages of flickering heat so convincing that mortals have fallen in love with them. Those who see through an efreeti’s tricks, however, are often handsomely rewarded.
Burning Grudges. Fire demands respect, lest it burn out of control. So too do the efreet. Long ago, a noble led a daring raid on the City of Brass and stole a golden sword belonging to an efreeti ruler. Since then, the efreet have needed little provocation to attack a marid or their allies.
Doors of Brass. Doors of brass have been discovered throughout the planes. One might be uncovered in the caldera of a dormant volcano or deep within a desert dungeon; another might appear amid a fiery storm in the Astral Sea. Wherever these doors are found, all lead to the City of Brass.
