Sultan of Brass City
You see a pleasantly plump man with a curly white beard, moustache and hair. He barely stands 5 ½ feet tall. He is dressed in white sultan’s clothing and has a tan. Upon closer inspection, however, you realize it isn’t a tan at all. In fact it is metallic brass in color. His eyes are red, while his irises are golden. A brass crown, encrusted with many rubies, sits atop his head. On his left pinky, rest a simple brass ring. Clutched in his right is a brass falchion, dotted with rubies along the back of the blade. This is The Sultan of Brass City.

Solomon was a real-life sultan. He conquered many lands, killing many, and spanning his empire across the Mortal Coil. One day, his reign of terror came to an abrupt halt.
He met up against, a now forgotten, army, which specialized in fire. Solomon had never seen humans control fire so gracefully. They disintegrated his men before his very eyes. Solomon ran into hiding as his vast empire crumbled around him. He slowly gained an attraction to fire, as it was powerful and could destroy anything. He saw fire as a way of gaining his empire back with ease.
Solomon swore to gain his empire back. Only this time it would be undefeatable. To do this he enlisted the help of fire elementals, by way of a summon spell. He saw their control over fire much greater than a human could have. Using his new found army of elementals, he quickly took vengeance against the army that defeated him long ago. His empire quickly grew once again. But there was one thing that Solomon overlooked. The fire elementals were not under his full control. They already had leaders, the Fire Archomentals, Imix and Zamaan-Rul. Slowly, the fire elementals returned home to serve their masters, and Solomons empire crumbled once more, as he had no army, and therefore no power.
Solomon had to find a powerful race, that had control over fire, to call his own. Thats when he set his eyes on the Efreeti. He knew he couldnt just rush into the Elemental Plane of Fire and take over. Instead he spent many years creating way to control of them through magic. After ten years he created the Ring of Solomon. Using this artifact, he had the power to force many Efreeti to bow before his feet. Only strong willed Efreeti stood against Solomon.
They met on the battlefield, where the Brass City sits to this day, and fought. The opposing Efreeti received help from unlikely allies, the Djinni. The Djinni helped out only because they saw Solomon as a greater threat in the near future. The combined forces of Efreeti and Djinni, however, could not stop Solomon. Solomons army, though filled with the weakest of Efreeti, greatly outnumbered them. It wasnt even a day before the opposing Efreeti and Djinni were wiped out. The Djinni retreated back to their homeworld and began building up their defenses. The surviving Efreeti were forced to swear allegiance to Solomon. This however was not enough for Solomon. He wanted more. He forced the Efreeti to give up all their treasure. Solomon was disappointed with what he received. He received piles upon piles on brass jewelry, weaponry, and coins.
Just then, he had an idea. Instead of returning to the Mortal Coil, he would make his home here. He forced the Efreeti to melt their prized brass treasure and create the Brass City. It was at this point he abandoned his name, and replaced it with a title, The Sultan of Brass City.
Years later, as the opposing Efreeti were eventually killed, the Efreeti grew to like The Sultan, not knowing of what he did long ago. Only few know what happened so long ago, but dare not to speak of it out loud.
The Sultan stands 5 ½ ft. tall and weighs 250 pounds.
