Janns appear almost human, but have a definite mystical air to them, something that makes them both admired and distrusted by actual humans. Janns stand at least six feet tall and carry themselves with an unnatural grace. The only other giveaway to their nature is their eyes, which sparkle with an unnatural brightness.2
Habitat and ecology
Janns favour the quiet isolation of the deepest desert and the most remote oases. Unlike other genies, janns have no home elemental plane; instead they roam across the Material Plane. They keep their distance from humans, whom they distrust. They are drawn to places of natural beauty like the Painted Flutes and other natural wonders. Janns are unique amongst genies in that rather than being composed of a single element, they are instead made of a combination of all. Despite their human appearance (which, if pointed out, would quickly offend), they are much stronger than they initially appear.2

Clans of nomadic janns roam the deserts of Kelesh. They encourage their suli kinsmen to brag about their achievements and interact with humans, in the hope of making good impressions and softening the Keleshite government's stance on genie slavery.56
