Djen humans were shorter and duskier-skinned than most other people groups, including other Calishites, with dark brown hair and eyes as well. Occasionally, a Djen with red or lighter hair or blue or green eyes would be born; this child was always considered a sign of the favor of the gods.
When a Djen produced children with other races or ethnic groups, Djen features tended to dominate in the offspring.
The Djen were descendants of the human slaves brought by Calim, most likely from the lands of Zakhara, in about −7800 DR. This human people group takes its name from the Djen, which included not only the human slaves but also the whole group of genies and their servants of other races. After the fall of Calim, the Djen became the nobles and rulers of Calimshan. Unlike the Tethans, this grouping of people tended to intermarry less frequently and were thus considered more "pure". About 30% of humans in Calimshan were members of this racial group.
