Marids are a giant and extremely powerful type of Jinn. They’re the basis for genies, a westernerized version of jinn, as they were featured in the popular Thousand and One Nights book and can grant wishes if they are compelled or imprisoned. Marid are usually evil, but not always. There are humanoid types that sometimes have wings and beast-like types, including a massive fish named Bahamut. ⠀
