Efreet4

The Efreet.

Mythology

The Efreet (also ifrit) (afreet, afrit, or afrite, Arabic (male) ʿifrīt/عفريت or (female) ʿifrītah/عفريتة) was a demonic fire spirit from Arabian mythology (not Persian mythology).

It was classified as being an evil type of Djinn or Genie, from a class of infernal jinn (spirits below the level of angels and devils) noted for their strength and cunning. Furthermore, mythology depicted an ifrit as an enormous creature of fire and smoke, either male or female, who lives underground and frequents ruins.

In God of War: Chains of Olympus

As soon became evident to Kratos, the Persian King apparently had the ability to summon the Efreet. Kratos took this power from him, after having defeating the king at Attica. When used, it unleashed the fire spirit which attacked all surrounding enemies. It could also be leveled up, to increase the damage it does, and to receive new abilities.
