Djinni are genies native to the Elemental Plane of Air, about ten feet tall, weighing a thousand pounds, and with their lower body that trails into a misty vortex that can be described only as magic, although it is said they are able to procreate with humans.

It is said one in every hundred djinni is considered a vizier, a noble genie, someone who can grant three wishes to any non-genie creature that captures them, albeit these djinni are generally stronger and more powerful than the rest of their kind.

They are communicative, free-spirited, and eager to learn, and they communicate both by speaking and using telepathy. Efreet are their arch-rivals and many clashes between them made their names known, names like Monu, Ezzal, Essoo, and Yeze.

These genies are considered magic beings capable of granting any wish one might have, providing they capture the right djinn in the first place.

They are extroverts, love to meet new people, learn new things, and communicate with others about various topics. Think on how this creature came to be, what was their early life like, how and where might they have been captured, are they able to grant a wish, and create a name worthy of a rather peculiar life that lies ahead, one where mystery is never far away.
