A type of Djinn, an evil spirit from Islamic tradition. The Shaytans are higher ranking spirits that possess humans. Some spirits become more powerful and advance becoming a Shaytan. Shaytans manipulate their victims to cause them to do wrong. They know 7 - 8 different types of magic and have limited powers in shape-shifting. Each person has a guardian angel who acts to protect them from the Shaytans.

Djinns in general tend to have humanoid ugly appearance and many are savage causing storms, sandstorms and death. Some believe that they are made of air while others maintain that they were born from fire and when they take the form of an animal or human, they have fire in their blood.
