User with this ability either is or can transform into an Shaitan (plural: shayatin. Feminine: Shaitana(h) and Shaytana(h), literally: unruly person, devil, deuce, satan, accuser, adversary, astray or distant) are evil spirits, comparable to demons, in Islamic theology and mythology. Usually, the shaitans are regarded as the offspring of Iblis, but other beings, such as evil jinn, tyrants and fallen angels are also referred to as shaitans.





  • Weak against users of Angel Physiology or other holy powers.
  • Shaitan may be bound to a receptacle (usually imagined as a lamp), which they cannot leave without certain events happening (someone rubbing the lamp, certain commands, etc).
    • Anyone who holds the receptacle may have command over the Shaitan, forcing it to grant them wishes.
    • Destruction of the receptacle may either kill the genie or release it.
  • Shapeshifting may be limited to specific species.
