Originating from Djinnestan, the jinn are powerful beings that can fight angels, fallen angels, and devils on equal terms. They were once worship as Demon Gods by human, but have long since disappeared from the world before even the Great War. Unlike devils and fallen angels, the djinn can’t reproduce amount themselves as their race is made entirely of females. The only way to create more jinn is to reproduce is to mate with other races. Their children will always be a djinn.
All djinn resemble humans in appearance except for their smoky tail, which they can turn into solid legs at will. Some djinn also have some unusual feature, such as Kurumi having a cloak face as her left eyes and Kotori having horns sticking out of her head.
Unlike the other Great Factions, djinn rely on magical power. That said, djinn possess such massive amounts of magical power that some of them can even fight Ultimate-class Devils as equals. Like the other Great Factions, all djinn have a unique ability which allows them to communicate with different people from another world without the language barriers.
A djinn’s main power comes from their weapon of choice. A djinn’s weapon possesses so much power that Ddraig warned Issei to be careful around them. Kotori was even able to burn away James’s Dark Armor with her flames.
Seven Djinn KingsEdit
The Seven Djinn Kings are the seven rulers who control Djinnestan. Unlike the devils, all of the Djinn Kings are members of the seven original houses: Al-Mazhab, Al-Abyad, Al-Ahmar, Barkan, Shamhuresh, Zawba’a, and Meymoon.
