About

Cheitan djinn appear as normal djinn with bronze colored skin.

During construction of the City of Brass, the efreet employed all manner of races. Most were slaves kept by the efreet in their palaces. When the City was finished most of these slaves were killed; some however were taken as consorts and concubines by the great nobles of the City. The resulting offspring of such a mating was a creature that had traits of both parents. Many efreet killed the offspring at birth seeing them as a mark on their society. Some saw the potential for a new race—pawns to be used in their wars against the djinn.

Over the years many efreet have taken non-efreeti mates and spawned children that they unleash on the rest of the multiverse. Cheitans are raised to be cruel, uncaring, and unforgiving—traits the efreet both possess and admire. Sometimes, a cheitan turns from its heritage and sees the good in life and embraces such things. These cheitans usually don’t live very long, especially in the presence of another cheitan or an efreeti.
