A bound genie.

While any spellcaster capable of casting planar ally, planar binding, and binding spells can conjure and bind genies, the true genie binder1 is a spellcaster who has devoted his life to the pursuit of this practice. Most genie binders study the works of Sulesh the Great religiously, but the best of them understand that even Sulesh was not infallible, and use his works as stepping stones to further perfect the act of genie binding.234

While most genies abhor the act of binding and bottling, many have an odd appreciation and respect for actual genie binders. Nothing delights an ifrit5 more than to see a jaathoom6 ensnared, for example, and janns are quite pleased to see their elder brothers and sisters brought low.3
