Tales of Wuxia
The main ability of speedy fire-spirit is fire resistance: subtract an extra DR 6 from fire damage, and then halve penetrating injury (e.g., 21 points of dragon’s breath would inflict only 7 points). This extends to heat; the average fire-spirit is quite comfortable up to 200°. They can’t control fire, but can generate small flames for light and heat.
