A Luftgeist is an air elemental. They manifest as a distortions in the air, visible at a distance, and are composed of air-like flesh. Skilled Thaumaturges, such as Elementarii, can summon Luftgeists from the air around them.

Warfare use[]

Luftgeists have been used in combat to bring down airships and to burst the lungs of enemy combatants. During an encounter between the Iron Council and a company of New Crobuzon Elementarii, luftgeists were used to disable the Iron Council's airship and attack the train's defenders.
