Pure Fiction But We Wish It Was Real: J is for Jyn’ai

The Jyn’ai are a race of genie-like creatures that frequently manifest upon the material plane. Like their name sounds use their powers to grant wishes to specific humans. Jinn is the Arabic word for genie

Their powers are extensive. For example they can warp reality, manipulate matter, and energy.  They have some telepathic ability, clairvoyance, and a kind of psychic erosion. 

In human form they can reach up to seven feet tall and in their astral plane can live for millennia. 

The first appearance of the Jyn’ai was in the Sleepwalker Holiday Special #1 (January, 1993) 

Most people don’t want the enslavement that usually accompanies being a genie and would much prefer to have their wishes granted.

However, just like precognition and time travel, making a wish can have disasterous results. 

Some prime examples in entertainment are Aladdin, I Dream of Genie, and Once Upon A Time.

So, here we go. You have three wishes (commone rules apply) what do you wish for? 

*(The commons rules of genie wishes include: you can’t wish for more wishes, make someone love you, or bring back the dead).

  1. 1. Wish for everyone in the world just to be reasonably kind and decent to one another!
    2. Enough resources, distributed in a manner that benefits all.
    3. Halt (maybe we’d better even slightly reverse) climate change.
    Sometimes wishes have bad results because they’re bad wishes or poorly thought out, but other times wishes have bad results because the wish-granter deliberately misunderstands or warps it on purpose to cause trouble. If the latter, probably safest just not even to wish at all.

    1. The wish-granter with an agenda can be very tricky. I think you’re right, best to leave that one alone.

  2. 1. Me and my family to be healthy
    2. To have enough money to live comfortably on forever
    3. To be happy

    Pretty boring, standard wishes really lol

    1. Not boring at all! Real.

  3. Ok, this is to be well thought out…
    1 – happiness for everybody in the planet (and beyond, let’s be generous)
    2 – empathy and caring for everybody to everybody
    3 – no more work for me, I want to be retired!!
