Elementals are non-physical beings relating to the four classical elements. These beings are said to exist wherever these elements are present. Each type of elemental corresponds to one of the elements, these individual beings are known as Gnomes (earth), Undines (water), Sylphs (air), and Salamanders (fire).
The work of Paracelsus in the 16th century is the first description of these beings known. He regarded them not as elementals or spirits, but rather as people who were unable to be seen by our eyes.
