Blightburn Genies

Source Pathfinder #155: Lord of the Black Sands pg. 78
Before the Black Desert became a barren sandscape, cultures with grand magical traditions lived under its soaring roof. These communities eventually left the vault or died out, but the genies they summoned remained and became warped by the region's pervasive blightburn radiation. Now, these “blightburn genies” have bodies with features mirroring those of beasts that dwell in dark places, and their elemental lineages have been irreparably corrupted.


Ararda (Creature 18), Muurfeli (Creature 16)

Genies of the Black Desert do not personify the four elements of the Elemental Planes as they do elsewhere in the cosmos. Rather, blightburn genies combine their innate elemental powers with the features of the desert to summon powerful, perverted versions of natural phenomena such as electric sandstorms or acid rain.

In addition to muurfeli and arardas, other blightburn genies can also be found in the Black Desert, including black, doglike efreet called suayiks and laanums, amorphous marid-like horrors with the heads of powerful sea serpents. Darklands equivalent of jann may exist, though they supposedly only appear to the hopelessly lost.
