Saalah

Saalah

ALSO KNOWN AS:

Sealah

Saalah are believed to be the offspring of humans and Djinn. Although theoretically half-human, they are generally considered a sub-set of Djinn. Saalah prefer to live in forests. They dance—that’s their defining characteristic. Allegedly if Saalah capture humans, they force them to dance, reminiscent of what may be another sub-set of Djinn, Zar spirits. Wolves are their nemesis. They devour and destroy Saalah. Images of wolves will allegedly repel the Saalah.
