Lightning quasi-elementals can be found in the quasi-plane of Lightning, the Elemental Plane of Air, and the Positive Material Plane. During great electrical storms on the Material plane, a few have been known to gather.

   A lightning quasi-elemental appears as a small bluish globe of electrical energy. Lightning plays off of and around its body.

 

COMBAT

A lightning quasi-elemental attacks by arcing itself into an opponent (if the opponent is wearing metal armor) or by releasing small globes of electricity.

   Electricity (Ex): A lightning quasi-elemental is composed completely of electricity; therefore any creature touched or touching it takes 1d6 points of electrical damage.

   An opponent grasping or wearing conductive material (metal weapon, armor, and so on) that comes into contact with a lightning quasi-elemental takes 1d6 additional points of electrical damage.

   Arc (Ex): The lightning quasi-elemental may move up to 120 feet and make an attack by arcing from its current location to any grounded metallic object (including creatures holding metal weapons or wearing metal armor). This is treated as a charge attack.

   Globe (Ex): A lightning quasi-elemental can discharge one globe, once per round, for each Hit Die it possesses. This globe will hover near the elemental until an opponent comes within 5 feet, at which time, the globe moves to the opponent and discharges; 1d4 points of damage, Reflex save (DC 13) half.

   Electricity Immunity (Ex): Lightning quasi-elementals are immune to all electrical effects

   Water Vulnerability (Ex): A lightning quasi-elemental takes 1d8 points of damage per gallon of water it contacts.

   Elemental: Immune to poison, sleep, paralysis, and stunning. Not subject to critical hits or flanking attacks. Lightning quasi-elementals have darkvision with a range of 60 feet.
