Sanjar is a flier jinni, but a weak one that's always teased and scorned by his peers. Coulda, one of the Blue Jinni's most fearsome generals waits for the chance to turn Sanjar against humans by offering him the one thing he's never had--power.
The Hakima's Tale: The Revenge of the Blue Jinni
Sanjar was one of the weakest of his kind. His wings were small, and his head was too big, which made it more difficult for him to fly. He had always felt inept compared to the other fliers, who were magnificent. Seeing their sleek bodies with majestic robust wings made him feel like a Grimgot. The renegades had agreed to stop their missions to the lower heaven for fear that it could endanger the girl, but Sanjar was feeling the need to find anything that would make him special.
