This Week's Monster- Djinn:
AKA Jinn, Jinni, and Genie

The Djinn is a rare race of cave dwelling hermits that have the power to produce power hallucinations within the minds of humans. Djinns are humanoid creatures with tattooed skin that prefer to live in large ruins with a lot of places to hide. They feed on human blood and can poison their victims with a touch. The poison can be used either to kill their victims quickly, or to leave victims in a coma-like state while the djinn feeds on their blood over a long period of time.

Contemporary lore depicts them as genies and are able to read a person's mind to learn their deepest desires; however, the djinn do not truly grant wishes like the genies of lore. Instead, using their poison, the Djinn causes hallucinations so powerful that the immobilized victim thinks he or she is actually living in the reality the Djinn implanted.

Jinn were worshipped by the Arabs, they were not however immortal beings. They were originally believed to be malevolent spirits residing in deserts and other unclean places, and were also thought to be responsible for illness and diseases.

Many writings and Mythology state that Genies are not Djinns, with Genies being benevolent or neutral, granting wishes with no consequences, and Djinns being tricksters of sort and normally putting negative effects on each wish.
