The First Jinn War was the assault to the stars by the Jinn Lord Kaleel and his legion in the Second Age. [1]

The First Jinn War Edit

In the Second Age the Jinn were offered great power. But many of the Jinn were not benevolent beings. [2] Several of the most powerful Jinn, including the Jinn Lord Kaleel, staged a coup against the gods. Kaleel and his five brothers together toppling the Moon and casting him into an eternity of quiet slumber in the First Jinn War. The Kaleel's Legion invaded the night sky, dousing thousands of stars and capturing the rest in the Night of the Burning Sky. Together, the Jinn imprisoned the evening heavens. [3] Kaleel knew the awesome secrets of the stars and how to destroy them. [4]

Sayel Blade Edit

When the First Jinn War swept through the Celestial Heavens and Lord Moon witnessed his own imminent demise, he called upon his secret weapon, the Khayel, but it did not respond. It had been trapped within the Sayel Blade by the Jinn Lord Kaleel using deception. [3]

Imprisoning Shilah Edit

With the dawn, Shilah arrived to behold their crimes, and was horrified by what her beloved creations had become. The Kaleel's Legion trapped the Sun within a prison built of their awful face. Cut off from all that she had envisioned, and thinking her cherished family dead or destroyed, she quickly fell into madness, loosing her own power. Within one cycle, Kaleel and his Legion had captured the world. [2]

Enslaving the World Edit

The jinn embarked on a campaign of terror, reducing their own creations to subjects or slaves, or consuming them. Ashalan and human were forced to work together for the first time in history against a common foe – their own progenitors. [2]

Aftermath Edit

The Ashalan eventually contacted Shilah with the Hakhim's Seal, a fabulous magic they developed. Awakened from her lunacy, Shilah witnessed the Jinn through the veracity of the Seal. In one climactic moment, the world dissolved around the Jinn, Ashalan, and humans. Those who thrived from magic and lived were forced out of Shilah's sight: the Ashalan fled into the earth, and the last thousand Jinn bound themselves into service with the humans or fled beyond the boundaries of the world. It was the Day of Wrath, and the creation of the Burning Sands. [2]
