Ifrits are supernatural creatures found in Arabia. Their blood can be distilled to make maelstrom crystals.
In mythology, the Ifrit is an infernal race of Djinn, or genie, known for their strength, cunning, and relationship to fire. They were said to harbor a hatred towards all living things and would often act out in violent ways to showcase their disdain, most often through use of manipulation, murder and greed. They were highly susceptible to magic, however, and could be captured and controlled by humans with innate magic or magical artifacts.
