Poshment is one of the rare lava gnomes that live under the volcanoes of the world. These particular gnomes have strayed from their fey heritage and taken to the worship of elemental beings, particularly the Elemental Lord Ymeri, Queen of the Inferno. Long has their blood intermingled with Efreeti, and they universally manifest elemental powers of fire. Many have taken up the forging of the sword and armor; others, like Poshment, take these treasures and head into the world to burn away lesser foes and forge themselves into a unstoppable force.
(Poshment is a 7th level gnome barbarian using the armored hulk and elemental kin type, using the Lava Gnome racial subtype. He has a variety of fire related powers: before raging, he can use eldritch heritage or gnomish spell-like abilities to throw fire; once he closes he rages and begins swinging with a sword he can light with fire for 1 round. He favors the longsword, weapon of Ymeri. His particular sword in adamantine. Heavy armor and guarded stance mean that his AC is still high, even while raging.).
