Appearances

Jin is a monster born of wind, hidden inside a rapidly spinning whirlwind and who attacks with blades of air. Jins are particularly annoying enemies, but defeating many of them may lead to one dropping a Midas' Gold. The Midas' Gold is needed to craft either the Prince's Clothes, the best LCK boosting armor in the game (DEF +3, LCK +10), or the Alucart Mail, the worst armor in the game (DEF +1).

To steal from a Jin, the player must wait until they back away from Hector. They usually do this once they have sustained enough damage and their HP is low, at which point it's more probable they'll open their stealing window. Successfully stealing from a Jin will yield the Frenzy of Wind material.

OriginsEdit

Jinns are supernatural creatures in Islamic mythology as well as pre-Islamic Arabian mythology. They are mentioned frequently in the Quran and other Islamic texts. The Quran says that the jinn are made of a smokeless and "scorching fire", but are also physical in nature, being able to interact in a tactile manner with people and objects and likewise be acted upon. The jinn, humans and angels make up the three known sapient creations of God. Like human beings, the jinn can be good, evil, or neutrally benevolent. The shaytan jinn are the analogue of demons in Christian tradition, but the jinn are not angels, and the Quran draws a clear distinction between the two creations.

Inscriptions found in Northwestern Arabia seem to indicate the worship of jinn, or at least their tributary status, hundreds of years before Islam.
