The maahes is the sheikh or sultan of various djinni and efreeti. Much like the wadjet, they were once loyal servants of the pagan gods but were thrown down when their masters were banished from the world. They are now considered royalty among most of genie kind. Maahes appear much like leopards, lions or tigers from the neck up but below they have a magnificent powerful body with six arms wielding a host of powerful weapons. They sometimes sprout great swooping horns like rhinos or water buffalo from their heads. They tower over most djinni and arrogantly march into battle, slaughtering scores of enemies with their furious barrage of weaponry. When not butchering whatever foes they encounter in the desert, they lay about drinking copious amounts of spiced wine and devouring succulent roasted camels mixed with pepper and Medjool dates dipped in honey. These extravagant creatures love nothing more than fine jewelry of silver, emerald, gold, sapphire and rubies and enjoy covering themselves with said baubles.
