The efreet (eh-FREET[1]; singular is efreeti) are a race of powerful and cruel genies that hail from the Elemental Plane of Fire.


Efreet appear like crimson skinned humans wreathed in flames with billowing black smoke seeming to leak from their very flesh. Efreet tower over normal humans at twice their height, most standing at least twelve feet tall. Further adding to the efreet's positively fiendish appearance, they have a set of horns growing out of their foreheads. These horns vary in size from efreeti to efreeti, some possessing mere nubs while others sport horns the size of a stag's. Thanks to their huge size, efreet generally weigh around two thousand pounds each.[2]


Habitat & ecology[]

Efreet dwell only on the Plane of Fire, though their world-spanning machinations mean they can be found far beyond their traditional home. The efreet's plane travelling schemes are only aided by their ability to shift between the planes practically at will. Efreet are the only one of the genie races that are inherently evil and as such they do not get along well with any of the other types of genie; they positively despise the carefree djinni, hate the marids (who embody the opposing element of water), and find the janni pathetically frail. The only type of genie the efreet can actually tolerate is the shaitan, who embody elemental earth, but even then their similar nature tends to make them compete rather than cooperate.[2]
