Burning Rush [two-actions] (evocation, fire, primal) The striding fire Strides up to double its Speed in a straight line. Its movement during this Stride doesn’t trigger reactions. Any creature the striding fire was adjacent to at any point during this Stride must attempt a DC 24 basic Reflex save. If it critically fails, it is knocked prone by a wave of heated air. The striding fire can’t use Burning Rush for 1d4 rounds.


An embodiment of the speed and chaos of a spreading blaze, a striding fire appears as a lithe and long-limbed humanoid composed of shifting-hued flames churning within a skeleton-like framework.

More than other elementals, fire elementals tend to deviate from neutrality, and are often good, evil, or chaotic in nature. Lawful fire elementals are rare. Fire’s inherently capricious nature seems to prevent these creatures from succumbing to the influence of order.
