[[Dean]] and [[Sam]] are tracking a djinn, and when Sam tells Dean that, according to his research, they live in "ruins, usually –- the bigger, the better," Dean recalls a warehouse that he passed a while back and decides to investigate it on his own. In the warehouse, Dean finds the djinn but is overpowered and poisoned. After he is poisoned, he finds himself in a [[wish-verse]] based on his innermost desire for his mother not to have been killed when he was a child. In this alternate reality, [[Dean]] and [[Sam]] are not hunters, and so have not become close. Dean wants to believe that the djinn granted his wish, but becomes convinced that he is only dreaming. He wakes himself up by killing himself inside the vision, and when he returns to reality he is bound and weak. [[Sam]] is there trying to wake him, and starts to cut him down before being attacked by the djinn. Dean manages to break free and stab the djinn with a silver knife dipped in lamb’s blood, killing it.

Djinn are hunting [[Dean]] and [[Sam]] and, unlike the djinn in [[2.20 What Is and What Should Never Be]], they are not "cave-dwelling hermits," but are able to pass as human. A djinn named [[Brigitta]] poses as a waitress and touches Dean's arm to infect him with her poison. Her touch makes Dean hallucinate his worst fears, including the return of [[Azazel]]. He seems on the verge of a panic attack when he is saved by Sam, who injects him with an antidote to the djinn's poison. [[Sam]] tells Dean that he was also poisoned by the djinn and that they both would have died without the antidote, which he got from their grandfather [[Samuel Campbell]].

History

Little is known of djinn history, their origins appear to come from the Middle East, as Castiel claimed to have battled with a pack guarding the Tree of Life in Syria and possibly technically becoming married to the djinn queen in exchange for receiving the fruit.

Characteristics

Djinn as depicted in lore.

Djinn are humanoid creatures with markings on their skin that appear tattoo-like. The djinn prefer to live in large ruins with a lot of places to hide, and appear to mostly be solitary and hermit like in nature,[1] though family units of djinn appear to stick together. When djinn access their powers, their eyes will glow blue and their arms will be engulfed in a blue smokeless flame.[1]For certain djinn who can camouflage as human, their markings can move and extend down their arms.[2] They feed on human blood and can poison their victims with a touch, which causes reality-altering hallucinations and can be used either to kill their victims quickly,[2] or to leave victims in a coma-like state while the djinn feeds on their blood over a long period of time.[1]

Djinn are also classified as genies and are able to read a person's mind to learn their deepest desires; however, the djinn do not truly grant wishes like the genies of lore. Instead, they send their victims into a fantasy universe where they believe their wish has been granted while the djinn can drink their blood slowly over the course of days. Time passes slowly enough in the fantasy universe that the djinn's victims will feel as if they're living an entire lifetime before their physical bodies die.[1]

There is a variant form, referred to as a "bastard off-shoot" by Dean Winchester, that possesses the same powers and weaknesses, but turns the victim's insides to "jelly" and feeds on fear rather than happiness. To this effect, they trap people in hallucinations of their worst nightmares rather than their happiest dreams. Unlike regular djinn, when they poison their victims, they leave behind a blue handprint.[3]

Jennifer O'Brien administering poison to Charlie Bradbury.

Powers and abilities

  • Dreamwalking – Djinn can dreamwalk and influence a person's fantasy world.
  • Poisonous touch – Their poison causes hallucinations that the djinn can control,[1] which in large doses can cause death.[2] Depending on the type of djinn, these hallucinations can either be a person's greatest fantasy, or worst nightmare.
  • Telepathy – Djinn can read a person's mind to learn their deepest desires or worst fears.[1]
  • Nightmare manifestations – Djinn's that had been enhanced by the archangel Michael have the ability to see a person's nightmare, and make it manifest in the physical world, where it is under the djinn's control.
  • Shapeshifting – Certain djinn can employ a form of shapeshifting where they are able to disguise their full body markings and appear more human.

Weaknesses

  • Angel blades – Are effective in killing a djinn.
  • Extreme brain damage – Sam was able to kill a djinn by bashing its brains in.[2] Dean was able to kill another that had been enhanced by Michael in the same way.[4]
  • Silver and lamb's blood – A silver knife dipped in lamb's blood can kill a djinn.[1]

Episodes

The djinn captures Dean.

2.20 What Is and What Should Never Be

Dean and Sam are tracking a djinn, and when Sam tells Dean that, according to his research, they live in "ruins, usually –- the bigger, the better," Dean recalls a warehouse that he passed a while back and decides to investigate it on his own. In the warehouse, Dean finds the djinn but is overpowered and poisoned. After he is poisoned, he finds himself in a wish-verse based on his innermost desire for his mother not to have been killed when he was a child. In this alternate reality, Dean and Sam are not hunters, and so have not become close. Dean wants to believe that the djinn granted his wish, but becomes convinced that he is only dreaming. He wakes himself up by killing himself inside the vision, and when he returns to reality he is bound and weak. Sam is there trying to wake him, and starts to cut him down before being attacked by the djinn. Dean manages to break free and stab the djinn with a silver knife dipped in lamb’s blood, killing it.

6.01 Exile on Main St.

Djinn are hunting Dean and Sam and, unlike the djinn in 2.20 What Is and What Should Never Be, they are not "cave-dwelling hermits," but are able to pass as human. A djinn named Brigitta poses as a waitress and touches Dean's arm to infect him with her poison. Her touch makes Dean hallucinate his worst fears, including the return of Azazel. He seems on the verge of a panic attack when he is saved by Sam, who injects him with an antidote to the djinn's poison. Sam tells Dean that he was also poisoned by the djinn and that they both would have died without the antidote, which he got from their grandfather Samuel Campbell.

Dean being poisoned by the djinn Brigitta.

After getting Lisa and Ben to safety, Dean and Sam act as bait for the djinn. Instead of coming for them directly, the djinn attack and poison Dean's neighbor Sid and his wife. Dean goes to try and save them, but finds them dead with their eyes white. It is unclear if they had time to hallucinate, or if the dose of poison was so high that they died instantly. While Dean checks on Sid and his wife, he is attacked by Brigitta and another djinn. Brigitta gives Dean a second, stronger dose of poison through her touch and tells him, "That's for our father," implying that the djinn Sam and Dean killed in 2.20 was her father, and the other two djinn with her are her brothers.

The djinn are eventually overpowered by Sam and Samuel, and, while Sam is in Sid's house rescuing Dean, Samuel and Christian Campbell kidnap Brigitta while the other two djinn are killed.

6.10 Caged Heat

Sam, Dean, Castiel, and Meg encounter the djinn Brigitta in Crowley's monster jail. She is chained in a cell and seems terrified. She begs them to free her, but they don't have time and have to leave her. Later, Crowley comes to her cell, and she backs away from him fearfully. She is spared further torture when Crowley must deal with the escaped Winchesters.

Before they leave, the Winchesters ask Castiel to kill all of the monsters in the prison and he agrees though it becomes unclear if he actually did as its revealed he was working with Crowley.

7.22 There Will Be Blood

Crowley reveals that Castiel did kill all of the monsters in his prison except the Alpha Vampire who escaped. This means Brigitta was killed.

8.20 Pac-Man Fever

No no no, not regular djinn. According to this, there's a bastard offshoot. Uh, their eyes light up blue, they pass as humans, all that regular jazz, except these leave their victims with jelly-like insides, and supposedly, when they poison their victims, they leave behind a blue handprint.

Dean Winchester, 8.20 Pac-Man Fever

Jennifer O'Brien was an djinn offshoot whose species feeds off fear rather than happiness, and can easily blend in with humans. Her first kill draws attention, but she is able to eventually hide it by becoming the assistant of the coroner at the time and "accidentally" burning the body. Over the next nine years, she covers up her kills in the same way which she is able to easily do as the coroner, but when her son comes of age, he kills two people and the bodies draw the attention of Charlie Bradbury who warns Sam and Dean who investigate the case.

Sensing Charlie's fear when she pretends to be an FBI agent to investigate the case, Jennifer kidnaps her and plans to feed both herself and her son off of Charlie.
