Pathfinder RPG (1st Edition) Starfinder RPG Pathfinder RPG (2nd Edition)


The Starfinder Roleplaying Game is about more than just meeting aliens—it’s also about playing alien characters. In Starfinder, the word “race” usually refers to an intelligent, selfaware species whose members can be considered characters rather than simple monsters. While not all races are appropriate for player characters, many of them are; any creature with a racial traits entry is a member of a potentially playable race, provided that your GM approves it.

Also called suli-jann, sulis are often the descendants of plane-hopping jann and mortal beings, although some sulis have elemental origins that are more mysterious. Sulis are difficult to recognize by sight, since they resemble ordinary humanoids with, perhaps, an occasional flash of elemental light in their eyes. Most manifest their otherworldly heritage at adolescence. Strong of body and personality, sulis readily survive and assimilate, making them one of the most widespread planar scions.

Size and Type

Sulis are Medium outsiders with the native subtype.


Sulis have low-light vision.

Elemental Assault

As a swift action, a suli can cause half the damage dealt by a weapon she wields to be acid, cold, electricity, or fire damage for 1 round. A suli can use this ability on her unarmed strikes, causing them to be neither archaic nor nonlethal while the damage alteration persists. She can use this ability a number of times per day equal to her level or CR.

Elemental Resistance

Their elemental nature grants sulis resistance 5 to acid, cold, electricity, and fire.

Alternate Racial Traits

The following are alternate racial traits for planar scions.

Mental Fortitude

Source Starfinder #46: The Perfect Storm pg. 53
Some sulis inherit the ability to shield their minds from magic. The suli gains a +2 racial bonus to saving throws against mind-affecting effects and reduces damage taken from such effects by 5.
This replaces elemental resistance.

Skilled Mediator

Source Starfinder #46: The Perfect Storm pg. 53
Sulis raised by widely traveled jann parents or similar plane-hopping ancestors learn to traverse myriad societies with ease. A suli with this trait gains a +2 racial bonus to Culture and Diplomacy checks. They also gain an additional starting language from Aquan, Auran, Ignan, and Terran.
This replaces elemental assault.
