Paphagos Genie (5e Race)
From D&D Wiki
Paphagos Genies come in many forms, varying based on whim alone. Their magic can be used to disguise their form, though always must be humanoid in nature. At the beginning of their life they are energy, magic freely existing within the universe but upon capture by powerful magic users this potent magic can become sentient.
All Genies must exist within a bottle, not of their choosing, but of the choosing of the magical user who is attempting to "create" a genie. A bottle is imbued with enough magic to store a genie and can come in many shapes and sizes. Through clear containers Genies appear like souls held within.
Akin to wild magic, Genies began their life as a pure, wild, chaotic magical force. They have never been keen on destroying the world that they live in but more often than not Genies love to cause mayhem and have for thousands of years.
Though stories have spread about these Genies, most believe they are purely wish making magical beings ready to help anyone who finds them. The truth behind that is far more sinister. These Genies feed off of pure magical energy, only consumable via eating flesh. Their wish granting power has been used for centuries, secretly, to draw in travelers and adventurers and feast on their bodies and dormant magical energy.
Genies are feared in small, tight circles and word travels through the guild, though common folk don't believe it.
Genie society does not exist. Genies, which are rare, do not often fancy meeting each other whether by accident or on purpose. Before they become what is now known as Paphagos Genies they exist as non-sentient chaotic magic. Paphagos Genies often despise one another, as their magic reacts to other genies in an unsavory manor.
