Djinn is already plural - Djinni is the singular. Should we change the page so it doesn't say "Djinns"?
I'm pretty sure Jinn is the singular, Djinn is plural, but in the show, in Sams books, and on the website its refered to Djinn, so thats how they spell it in the show, its simply a gramatic error, from a language that the produces weren't familliar.

- No, he's right. Djinn refers to a mass of them. Like, for example, when hunters, such as Dean and Sam, use the term "Djinn", they're generally talking about more than one. Think about it, or even re-watch the episodes, and you'll see, or you should. -- ImperiexSeed, 7:34 PM, August 17th 2012
Just out of curiousity, how do they sound different? I'm not questioning, you although I'm pretty sure it says in that book that they look at, Djinn, although I supose after thought that that might be refering to more tahn one. I'm just curious. General MGD 109 (talk) 23:39, August 17, 2012 (UTC)
Alpha Djinn Edit
In season 6 episode 10, Crowley asks the Djinn Briggata if shes to tell him about her 'daddy' but in the season 6 premier, when attacking Dean, Briggata says 'thast's for our father' which may just refer to the Djinn in Season 2 episode 20, as being just that group of Djinn's father, but perhaps thier alpha.
I think this may be so because diddnt that father Djinn's tattoos stay revealed at all times? his eyes and hands glowed blue which has not been seen by the others and his poison was far more potent.
Also the term Briggata used 'father' was used by the Shapeshifter that posed as a police officer in season 6 episode 2 saying something like 'the child should be with his father' 'not just his father, our father'.
And in season 6 episode 5, when all the vampires collapse due to the alpha they were saying 'father'.
Perticularly in season 6 the term 'father' among monsters seems to refer to the Alpha of the species and in that case, Sam and Dean already killed the Alpha Djinn.
Good points, I would agree with you, but there are two things that bug me about that conclusion, firstly if he was the Alpha Djinn, then why did what kills normal djinn (Silver knife dipped in lambs blood,) kill him, in the series Alpha's are generally much more difficult to kill. And Secondly if he was, then why didn't Bridget or anyother Djinn, just tell Crowley he was dead, thus meaning he would probably either kill them or let them go, it strikes me its a bit odd, if he was that none of them did, and if he didn't belive them, they could have asked him, to simply ask sam or dean (who at the time, were unwillingly working for him,) to confirm the story. But appart from that quite strong evidence. General MGD 109 (talk) 19:47, August 22, 2012 (UTC)
- Ok, there's a different in Supernatural in an Alpha between being a mother/farther figure to some than being the creator of an entire species. Monsters are able to reproduce, so there can be parents without them being the Alpha. -- ImperiexSeed, 6:48 PM, August 22nd 2012
