Djinn, sometimes spelled jinn, are a type of supernatural creature whose origins date back to Arabic folklore. It is said that when God created light, the Angels followed forth, but from the darkness cast from the shadow of that light, there came the Djinn. In modern contexts Djinn are usually referred to as Genies. Djinn are powerful mystical entities whose spiritual essences are traditionally confined to a container, such as a gemstone or a magic lamp. Upon being set free, the Djinn is then obligated to grant three wishes to the one who freed him. What takes place after the three wishes are granted are subject to interpretation. For starters, the Djinn is freed from the mystical bonds that tethered him to his containment structure. One account posited that a freed Djinn would be able to call forth others of his race and they would lay siege to the world. Such creatures were once described as the following:
Once, in a time before time, God breathed life into the universe. And the light gave birth to Angels. And the earth gave birth to man. And the fire gave birth to the djinn, creatures condemned to dwell in the void between the worlds. One who wakes a djinn shall be given three wishes. Upon the granting of the third, the unholy legions of the djinn shall be freed upon the earth. Fear one thing only in all that is... fear the djinn.
One particular Djinn came to prominence during the late 1990s when he was loosed upon the unsuspecting populace of an American city after having been confined in a statue for the past 870 years. The goal of the Djinn was to open the dimensional gateway between the real world and world of the Djinn, allowing legions of Djinn to dominate the Earth. To facilitate this, the Djinn needed to charge the Stone of the Secret Fire with human souls. He acquired these souls by granting single wishes to random individuals. One individual however, assumed the task of being the Keeper of the Stone of the Secret Fire. To this one person, the Djinn was obligated to grant three wishes. Only upon the completion of the third wish could the doorway be opened.
