Sarkin Aljan Suleimanu
Sarkin Aljan Suleimanu translates as “Solomon, King of the Djinn.” He is the ruler of Jangare, the invisible city where the Bori spirits dwell. All of the other Bori spirits are subordinate to him. He is the ruler of the Bori but also specifically head of the first house of Bori spirits, which incorporates the House of Blind Spirits, the chief’s bodyguard, and his smiths (all spirits). Sarkin Aljan Suleimanu is the adopted son of two now inactive spirits—pre-Islamic spirits who did not make the transition to an Islamic society. His queen is Bakar Doguwa, “the black, tall woman,” also known as Inna. Speculation is that if Sarkin Aljan Suleimanu is the biblical King Solomon, then Bakar Doguwa is the Queen of Sheba. Bakar Doguwa is sometimes identified with the snake charmer image now most frequently associated with Mami Waters.
Sarkin Aljan Suleimanu causes and heals headaches.
