A minority of the Gortokians Subterranean race formed a religious cult which worshiped a demon, whose identity has not yet been determined. This demon transformed his worshipers into a new race of Subterraneans known as the Lava Men, who abandoned the Gortokian civilization. Lava Men are humanoid in height and form, but they have red skins of rock-like consistency. Upon death, a Lava Man immediately decomposes into dust. The most influential living shaman of the Lava Men is Jinku.
Powers and Abilities
The demon who created them has given them various semi-mystical powers as well. Lava Men constantly generate tremendous heat, so that the ground is often seen to melt around their feet, and oxidation occurs around their bodies, often causing flame to appear around them. A Lava Man can increase the amount of heat he generates, so as to create a sphere-like area of intense heat abut him that will melt a weapon pointed towards him, or to melt a deep hole beneath his feet almost instantaneously. A Lava Man can mystically cause large amounts of volcanic ash to appear seemingly from nowhere or transform metal into volcanic ash. Some Lava Men can transform themselves into sentient giants, over twenty feet tall, composed of hardened lava.
The density of their bodies is greater than that of a human, and they are about twice as strong as the average human male. Lava Men are highly resistant to extreme heat, and can stand in molten lava without harm.
