The marid is an enormous animal that lives in the forests of the Near East, though few actually remain in the wild. Its fearsome natural weaponry consists of a long, flexible trunk, and two great tusks used to scythe through its enemies. Despite being a herbivore, the marid possesses burning eyes that reveal its violent temperament, and nothing can slow one of these massive beasts’ ground-shaking charges. Before their numbers were decimated by the growing plague of chigoes, battle-trained war marids were the centerpiece in the Aht Urhgan army. Now these ultimate shock troops are kept in reserve within the grounds of the Imperial Palace, rarely seen by those outside its walls.

The Marid drop three items used in synthesis. The Marid's hair, thick hide, and tusks are all used by highly experienced professionals to make some of the most decorative Near East armor.

Historial Background

In Arabic mythology and Islamic folklore, the Marid is a Djinn often found in open waters (such as seas or oceans). In occult texts, it is linked with the element of water. In some texts they were considered the most powerful category of Djinni. They were usually considered very malicious and evil, but humans could gain their favor. Their appearance is described as consisting of blue or green skin and had hair that always appeared wet.
