Fire in the shape of a human that can hurl fireballs.

Fire Men are building destroyers who live in the magma sea. When killed, it leaves behind a bar of ash which can be made into lye or potash. They live in the magma sea, so beware when setting up magma forges. Despite being made of fire, they can be safely captured and stored in wooden cages.

Admired for their licks of fire.

Fire men are only dangerous because of their natural heat and fire attacks (a fireball throw and a conical, short-range fire breath, respectively). Their punches and kicks are harmless on their own, and their flame body is extremely fragile, so don't be surprised if a baby punches a fire man to death. However, actually killing a fire man can be quite Fun, as the resulting burst of flame tends to set nearby creatures on fire.
