A nomadic race by nature, Djinn are born with wanderlust and never remain in the same place for long. Much of their history and origin is a mystery, even to themselves, and the desire to find answers is what drives them to wander. The only real starting point of origin a Djinn has is the caravans.
They are gifted performers, entertainers and craftsmen with personalities as colorful as their skin. Blessed with charm, wit and their exotic appearance there is never a dull moment with a Djinn around. Sarcasm, riddles and clever wordplay come naturally to a Djinn, regardless of where they are or who they are speaking with. They are confident to a fault and do not admit when they are wrong. This makes them naturally skilled at trading, bartering and diplomacy.
While they have been known to pay homage to other deities, every Djinn pledges fealty to Brume above all others. This is due to the fact that Djinn believe themselves to have the deepest connection to her. A belief so strong and held so vehemently that it is an offense to state otherwise. Speaking ill of Brume is certain to draw anger and even violence from the most cheerful of Djinn.
Djinn value familial bonds and are known to carry the ashes of deceased family members in ornate urns with them at all times. This practice is to ensure that the relatives journey never ceases and also because the only place a Djinn is to be buried is in their homeland. It would be considered a great offense for a Djinn to be buried in a foreign land. It is this familial focus that causes most Djinn to travel in groups and it is extremely uncommon to find one out on their own. In the rare case of a lone Djinn, they will usually attach themselves to a surrogate family made up of loyal friends and comrades of any race. They have a particular fondness for Bobbins believing they bring good luck.
Sticking to the north east side of the continent only going as far south as Harshorne, the Northern Djinn have adopted a more regal quality to them. Much of this is due to the prosperity they have acquired through trading rare resources and goods. Their most lucrative benefactors are the kingdoms of Harshorne, Il Paraonde, and Zenith. Harshorne in particular has changed trade throughout the caravans in the north prompting an exclusive trade agreement with the Northern Caravans and the kingdom itself. The Djinn have even gone as far as to hire Wishlings to accompany them on their travels believing they will bring them good fortune.
The Northern Djinn are honest traders to a fault and will often travel back to a patron to return money if their goods did not meet their standards, though that is a rare occurrence. They are respectful to traditions of the kingdoms they visit even going as far as to incorporate them into their own practices.
While originally keeping to the southern regions of the old continent, these Djinn have since started to move northward on the western side of the continent. There belief in the luck of bobbins has resulted in a tradition of rubbing a bobbins head for good luck whenever they can. The relaxed and chaotic nature of the southern caravans causes them to ignore the social etiquette of other cultures. It is only by their almost infinite charm and charisma that they are able to avoid offending their patrons.
Unlike their northern cousins, they prefer performance trades like acting, puppet shows, music, fortune telling and Sleight of hand and do not run traditional shops. The Tarochi fortune tellers are known throughout the land for their ability to read a person’s star sign.
