Special Abilities

Create Sustenance (Su) Once per day as a standard action, a janni can create enough plain but nutritious food and water to sustain 12 Medium creatures for a day in normal environmental conditions. The food disappears after 24 hours if uneaten, but the water remains.

Elemental Endurance (Ex) A janni can remain on an Elemental Plane for 48 hours. Each hour it remains on such a plane thereafter, it takes 1 damage that can’t be reduced in any way until it returns to the Material Plane. This endurance resets after the janni remains on the Material Plane for 24 hours.

Speak with Animals (Su) A janni can communicate with animals and use language-dependent effects, such as telepathy, on them.


With their nature split across the four elements, jann (singular janni) bear the closest resemblance to humanoids. Capable of visiting any Elemental Plane but incapable of surviving there longer than a couple of days, jann are nomadic and natural traders, ferrying goods and people among the Elemental Planes and the Material Plane. Jann magic is less potent than that of other genies, but the focus on interplanar travel allows jann to be creative in its application.

Though composed and gregarious, jann can be suspicious of others’ motivations. They are prideful, like most genies, and are quick to anger if they feel insulted. Jann also have a tradition of hospitality. They rarely turn away a creature in need, especially when that need is something as simple as shelter or sustenance. However, most jann expect reciprocation for their kindness.

A janni stands about 6 feet tall and weighs around 180 pounds.
