|“||It's called a Marid. It's a freaky-looking little thing isn't it? As long as you feed it, it gives you money, it gives you health, it gives you everything you ever dreamed of.||”|
A Marid is a type of creature that can grant riches and health in exchange for the blood of innocents.
On his final hunt before retiring, hunter Lee Webb found a Marid. Capturing the Marid, Lee spent over a decade feeding the Marid blood in exchange for riches and health. However, Lee's murder of Angela Sullivan was detected by his old friend Dean Winchester who investigated the case. Lee attempted to feed Dean to the Marid, but Dean was able to break free and kill the Marid and Lee.
Marids take the form of a scaly humanoid, with spikes around its head, and they feed on blood. In exchange for being fed, they can grant wishes to the persons providing the food.
