Peri

Peri are exquisite, winged spirits renowned for their beauty. Originally from Persian mythology, Peris were later adopted by other cultures. They are described as mischievous beings that have been denied entry to paradise until they have completed penance for atonement. Under Islamic influence, Peris became benevolent spirits, in contrast to the mischievous jinn and divs.
