A fikri appears as a tall, gaunt man or woman of extreme age, though this is belied by the obvious ease of movement and wirey strength. Strangely beautiful tatoos of indigo colors are etched into their chalky skin, most elaborately upon their cranium. Their bright, glowing blue eyes are glazed over and seemingly unseeing.
Fikri are genies from the Astral Plane. Many claim they are not true genies, but though even their more well known brethren would disown them if they could, they must admit to the kinship. Fikri are parasites in every sense of the word, preying upon the life force and mental energies of others. Disguising themselves as noble djinn and efreeti they rarely have to seek out their prey but instead await them to come seeking wishes. These they eagerly grant, though not as the wish seekers had thought.
In their native homes Fikri are most often found in incredibly strange and beautiful structures mentally fashioned straight from the ectoplasm of the plane itself. It is here that they bring their victims to feed upon at their convenience. Fikri are by far the most solitary of the genies and rarely share their homes with others. Astral constructs are brought into being and semi-permanently solidified to perform chores and tasks.
Fikri are great scholars, though rarely have any sort of recordings of what they discover, instead memorizing everything they learn and keeping it locked within their minds. With so little needs their homes prove to hold little more than amusements for the fikri when they are not engaged elsewhere.
A fikri is about 6 feet tall and weighs 150 lbs. Fikri speak Common, Gith, and Undercommon.
Fikri generally allow themselves to be 'captured' after putting up only a minimal fight under the guise of a djinn. They then graciously grant a wish to the willing being, putting them into a joyous coma and explaining it away as part of the wish. They will attempt to put off suspicions as long as possible to grant these wishes. They will then grab up all they can and whisk them away to the astral plane.
As a standard action a Fikri can grant a 'wish' to a being. It may attempt a touch attack and if the target does not succeed on a DC 17 will save they slip into a world of their own mind as the Microcosm power. What they experience is their heart's deepest desire. Each day they may make another save to free themselves, the DC increasing by +1 each day. The save DC is Intelligence-based.
A Fikri can deal 1d6+1 Constitution damage per day from a victim under the affects of deathwish, often scribing tatoos of sustenance upon them to meet their bodily needs as it slowly drains their life force. For every two damage it deals it may add 1 point to any of its ability scores. This bonus lasts for 24 hours.
A fikri can enter the Astral Plane, Region of Dreams, or the Material Plane. This ability transports the genie and up to eight other creatures, provided they all link hands with the genie. It is otherwise similiar to Plane Shift or Dream Travel.
