Born from the massive primordial, elemental magics absorbed by the continent if Valskar, the Ice Genasi live charmed lives, knowing the land around them almost as well as they do themselves. Approximately 1 in every 1,000 children born of humanoids on Valskar are Earth or Ice Genasi. These Genasi are always medium size but their height is closer to that of their birth parents. Parents of Genasi are considered blessed as their children have been given a boon of their homeland. Genasi children are generally treated like royalty and those living in civilized societies and are usually highly educated as their societies expect them to do great things with their gifts. 

Cultists of Orm share the common fascination with Ice Genasi, although this generally manifests as something much darker. The Cult of Orm will ritualistically sacrifice any Genasi born among their ranks, or any captured ones, as they consider all things touched by the primordials as food for the Ryzenorm.

Ice Genasi are generally hardy and well spoken. They can comfortably fit into any society and others are often happy to see them, knowing that the genasi are a people blessed by the elemental energies of the land.
