Daolani, or sand gen, were gen native to the Elemental Plane of Earth.[1]


Sand gen had tanned skin and dark black hair. Their squat bodies made them appear almost circular in shape. Sand gen moved about with clunkiness.[1]


Daolani were the most direct of all gen. They were never shy about telling their masters what they wanted. These selfish creatures lacked sympathy for anyone in trouble.[3]

Unlike their cousins, the mighty dao, these gen did not covet gems save for the occasional snack.[1]
