Efreet derives joy equal to the heinousness of his summoner's request. At times, his anticipation will cause the ground to tremble and the seas to part. From his evil nature and appearance, it is impossible to tell he was once an archangel.
Ifrit, also spelled as Efreet, are supernatural creatures in some Middle Eastern stories. In Islamic culture, they are usually a powerful type of jinn or identified with death-spirits.
