The Archai are a race of powerful elemental beings, often mistaken for Firestarters. Because of their abilities, they were hunted by both Good and Evil and were believed to be extinct. Tyler Michaels learned he was an Archai after manifesting new powers.


Because of their ability to burn holes in reality, the Archai were hunted down by good and evil beings and were presumed to be eliminated in the early 1100s. When Tyler Michaels developed the power to create portals in 2010, he and Paige Matthews learned he was in fact an Archai, not a Firestarter as previously believed.[2]

The Archai

An extinct race of incredibly powerful beings, often mistaken for Firestarters. After being hunted by both good and evil forces, the Archai were eliminated in the early 1100s because of their power to use the elements to burn holes in reality. Once the Archai could control the blaze within, they could naturally manipulate nature's fabric to travel to any and all planes of existence.
