They are very closely related to Genies. In the early history of the Godtime a number of Genies were subverted by the darker forces, and these subverted Genies became the Djinns. Disaster will strike if an adventurer believes that he has encountered a Genie but in fact has encountered a Djinn, for the two are almost indistinguishable. Even with a Genie one should beware of the gift of wishes for a Genie may easily twist the words of the wish to have a very different meaning or outcome than would have been desired. If the Genie felt that Good was dominant at that moment it could mean a disastrous result for the wish maker. In the case of a Djinn the words will be twisted if there is any possibility that they can be and the result will be most unfortunate.
